I presented again at this forum, which is the best attended of its type in the country.

I was ask to present on setting up a Business Continuity programme from scratch. I had to do this at a an organisation recently and I gave a presentation on learning from my experiences. The theme was “You’ve just landed the BC Manager role…. what do you do now”. It was based around answering 4 main challenges:

  • You have limited authority
  • You’re responsible for BC (and anything vaguely associated with it)
  • You are Priority 99 on people’s list (until you’re not)
  • You are asking people to do this properly

As always with the BC Forum, the audience were supportive and gave excellent feedback, as well as some challenging questions!!
