About

The organization’s annual DRI Conference brings together leading business continuity professionals from both the public and private sector to share best practices and participate in continuing education and volunteerism. Through its Collegiate Conferences series, DRI is partnering with universities to introduce students and faculty to this rapidly-growing field. As a recognized expert resource, DRI acts in an advisory capacity to international organizations and government institutions worldwide, helping to create industry standards and promote greater resiliency through public-private partnerships.

Thrive! began as the official publication of DRI International in the form of an online magazine.  Since then, our network of events and certified professionals in Asia has grown greatly.  As our community in Asia continues to thrive, we would like to take this opportunity to re-focus Thrive! on this important region.

We now bring you Thrive! Asia – a blog where DRI certified professionals can share their thoughts and experiences with the resiliency community.
