Maureen Roskoski is a Senior Professional at Facility Engineering Associates where she focuses on promoting resilience and sustainability in existing facilities through consulting, presenting, and teaching. Mike Petrusky asks Maureen about the importance of planning before a disaster and the fact that increasing frequency of severe weather events requires us to be able to respond, recover and resume. More than just emergency preparedness, Maureen explains that we need to understand what resilience is and how to incorporate business resilience into our long-term planning efforts. Mike and Maureen discuss FEA’s long-respected reputation as a thought-leader in the facility management community and music playlists, while also laughing about their names and the TV show, “The Office”.
