Business Continuity Planning & resilience testing
If you are looking for a business continuity planning service that moves with the times, look no further. We will deliver unique real-time exercises and industry-leading training, using our team of experienced journalists and SPLUTTER software to simulate a crisis situation in the social media age.
Combining specialist expertise in business continuity, crisis management, communications and simulation, our service offers topical and relevant bespoke exercises and support. We work with you to identify key risks, update your risk register and to develop and test your Business Continuity Plan.
Our consultant partners have more than two decades of experience in business continuity planning, testing and training. Jointly, we have worked across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors and a wide range of industries, from financial services and healthcare, to transport and housing.
Bringing together audit, consultancy, practical exercises and training, we provide support packages to help your organisation grow more resilient and better able to handle any incident in your organisation and in the media with confidence. Our packages, individually tailored to your requirements, enable you to meet all your B.C.P. needs in one place.
As a leading crisis communications consultancy, we can also build in as much or as little media 'collateral' as you need for your exercise day; TV, radio reports, press, real-time social media, news conferences.
