A sample of the fantastic testimonials received this year:
"Justin came highly recommended by University colleagues because of his excellent reputation in the Higher Education sector. Justin delivered an insightful organisation wide resilience gap analysis and improvement project plan. All of the recommendations were approved in full by the Vice Chancellor at a time of significant budget pressure. The project Justin set up and is delivering with us has achieved all outputs on time and is making substantial traction to build resilience and help us manage our continuity risks in a systematic way across our wide and complex organisation. We’re delighted with the support we have received and have no hesitation in recommending Justin and Incident Ready Consulting Ltd to organisations wanting to address resilience and business continuity in an effective and engaging way."
Ian Marshall, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Chief Operating Officer, Coventry University
"Justin provides us with business continuity training and incident management training. We’ve been working with him over the last two years, and his training has proved invaluable and extremely beneficial to our business – especially during a time of rapid growth and change at our facility. He delivers his training and incident management exercises in a clear and concise way and is always well received by our employees. He provides excellent support in defining and supporting the implementation of actions and improvements."
Robin Steele, Quality, Environmental, Health and Safety Manager, Plessey microLEDs
"The University of Aberdeen has had the benefit of the services from Incident Ready Consulting delivered by Justin. The key focus has been to both provide Business Impact Analysis training and some interim cover for our Business Continuity Adviser. The training and the feedback from staff on the quality of advice and support he provided has been excellent and led to a roll out of further training to enhance the skills and knowledge of our community in this important area. His knowledge of both his subject and the Higher Education sector has been much appreciated and we would not hesitate to use his services again."
Tracey Slaven, University Secretary and Chief Operating Officer, University of Aberdeen
We are not only impressed by Justin’s established credentials and expertise in the HEI sector but he also clearly demonstrates his understanding of the current challenges universities are facing. He was able to deliver, with his specialist technical expertise, insightful professional support and unfailing patience, an interim business interruption and resilience review to provide assurance to the insurance market – in preparation for tender - and to gain an effective overview of what a full risk profiling exercise would entail for an embedded continuous integrated risk management and insurance strategy that supports risk governance. Not only does Justin provide an excellent service supporting the University, his quick grasp of the complexities of our large organisation and the key stakeholders (and being able to communicate effectively with them) enabled a smooth roll out, with full engagement from the top down. Based on the interim review, we are now in the process of developing, with Justin, a full university–wide business interruption, resilience and contingency review and would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone contemplating the same.
Nicky Routh, Head of Group Insurance Services, University of Cambridge
“Justin came highly recommended on an industry forum, so we engaged him to design and deliver bespoke training for our business continuity leads, to develop their skills and confidence in exercising Business Continuity and Incident Response plans. The session was engaging and highly informative, with positive feedback from all attendees. It is clear that Justin has a wealth of knowledge and experience – we would definitely use him again for future consultancy support.”
Caroline Abbot, Senior Manager, University Secretary’s Office, The Open University
"A truly outstanding achievement in difficult circumstances. You've made adopting a new and more exacting ISO22301 standard look easy, showing the same commitment and diligence which allowed us to operate throughout the pandemic"
Andy Chalklin, Chief Operating Officer, University of Surrey
