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."

"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."
