Support & Services
Business Continuity Planning and ISO22301


With over 20 years of Business Continuity Planning and Crisis Response experience, I am adept at reviewing risks and dependencies and quickly identifying resilience gaps.


Working with you I’ll help build ownership, understanding and confidence at all levels of your incident response so key services and customer experience don’t fall over during disruption.

Giving a helping hand to people and organisations wishing to implement disaster planning

Resilience Gap Analysis Service

  • COVID-19, and the implementation of new technologies has transformed operational delivery for many organisations. It is essential to ensure that hybrid ways of working are resilient and that your continuity and emergency response strategies will be effective. Are you clear where your gaps are now?

  • The Resilience Gap Analysis Service is designed to help you understand

                    -  where are we at now?

                    -  are our continuity strategies fit for purpose and kept at readiness?

                    -  what does 'good' look like?

                    -  where are the gaps, risks and priorities?

                    -  and how do we best address them?

  • Build senior ownership – engage your Executive Team to invest time and effort to deliver improvements to mitigate key risks

  • Helps you set strategy and identify and implement good practice

  • Guides you to embed resilience thinking in every area of your organisational delivery


Various models of support are available, recognising that sometimes an expert advisor on the end of the phone is what is most needed to guide and coach your staff.
