This event will present the conclusions from the highly interactive 11th Brunel Lecture series 'From Risk to Resilience', which explored how Engineers, Emergency Managers and Local Communities/Cities could transition together from a Risk-based towards a more Resilience-based approach by using DIEM's Nine Universal Roadblocks (NUR) Model.
Having presented this lecture series in 22 locations worldwide to well over 2000 individuals, the 11th Brunel Internationale Lecturer, Eelco H. Dykstra, MD will now present the results of the feedback obtained, draw some conclusions, and offer recommendations for future activity.
Where and how might Engineering best fit in the transition from Risk to Resilience, working alongside Emergency Management and local communities/cities?
In 2016, Eelco H. Dykstra MD, Executive Chairman of Daily Impact Emergency Management (DIEM) began the 11th Brunel International Lecture series in London, by providing a unique and region-specific perspective on emergency management, asking how we could empower local communities to strengthen and benchmark resilience.
Starting from the premise of how to overcome the overarching problems of Fragmentation and Lack of Impact, the 11th Brunel International Lectureship explored how Engineers, Emergency Managers and Local Communities/Cities could transition together from a Risk-based towards a more Resilience-based approach.
For the past two years, Eelco has travelled the world with this message, collecting responses from a variety of individuals and locations to his creative lecture, which consisted of four interactive parts:
The NUR ModelTM is an essential part of the highly interactive and participatory 'Solution-Finding Sessions' that DIEM is known for. These are lectures, briefings, seminars, masterclasses and workshops designed to give participants ownership of the problem and provide them with the tools to search for solutions themselves.
During an 11th Brunel Lecture, participants in each location were asked two things:
Following each lecture, the input was processed and a report with the results sent to each location.
DIEM processed input by 890 individuals at 22 locations visited by the 11th Brunel Lecturer. When we add the 683 individuals at 15 other, non-11th Brunel locations in the same period, we arrive at a total sample size of 37 locations and 1,573 individuals.
Attendees at the 11th Brunel Closing Lecture will have the opportunity to hear Eelco present the conclusion of this series, giving the results of feedback, drawing some conclusions, and offering recommendations for future activity.
This event is being broadcast online. Please join the lecture up to 10 minutes before the start time of 6pm.

Title: From Risk to Resilience - Creating Opportunities by using the Nine Universal Roadblocks (NUR) ModelTM
MD, Executive Chairman of Daily Impact Emergency Management (DIEM)
With thirty years of international emergency management experience in a wide variety of settings and a proven ability to effectively deal with European, US, African and Asian approaches to emergency management systems and their respective stakeholders, Eelco is an acclaimed presenter and motivator, particularly with interdisciplinary, cross-cultural and inter-sector audiences.
Compared to past lectureships, a somewhat different approach has been taken, which puts proactive and interdisciplinary cooperation in front of existing and new audiences, with the aim of establishing a legacy system that will remain active and relevant after the series ends in early 2018. In addition to the lecture, an optional seminar and workshop will be offered at selected locations.
Attendees of the lectures and participants in the seminar and workshop will receive a summary of the results of their feedback in the form of a DIEM Focused Feedback Report/Initial Trend Analysis.
