Presenting at the BCI North West Forum

I recently was asked to present at the recent Business Continuity Institute (BCI) NW Forum in October 2018.

My good friend and fellow BC practitioner Steve Nuttall organises these events for the BCI. These are  free events to attend, you don’t need to be a BCI member and are always educational and entertaining.

I was asked to present on a section of the the BCI Good Practice Guidelines as part of an education programme for fellow Business Continuity professionals.  There were around 60 people present in an excellent location near Salford College.

This was the second time I’ve been asked to present here and always enjoy the challenge to present in front of a knowledgeable audience. It certainly keeps you on your toes.

I was glad to say the presentation went well, and I had the opportunity to add some insight into recent events of the TSB IT Failure (see previous blog post) and Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandals, as well as a few more amusing examples.

I’ve previously presented a couple of times at the Leeds Alert forums held at the Civic Hall Leeds where the audience can be well over 150. 

These events are always interesting, as I always learn useful information, and are often reminded of other tips which I’d forgotten.

You’re never too old to learn and “the only silly question is the one that wasn’t asked”.
