MKBRF Does Countdown
~business continuity going back to basics
Building on the success of our Spring event we are pleased to now invite you to take part in our upcoming Autumn event on 19th October.
The aim of the event is to have fun in promoting the basics of business continuity; learn how increased resilience can benefit all organisations and how it can be undertaken by anyone – and be jargon free!
It will be a jam-packed day featuring an engaging presentation from Charlotte Stacey on South Oxfordshire and Vale of White District Council's response to their recent devastating fire. You will also hear from Tim Parkins from Bucks Fire and Rescue on the support you can expect from the Fire and Rescue Service whilst also dispelling a few myths. The bulk of the day will be an interactive exercise facilitated by Scott Hughes and the team from PwC; you will be lead through the lifecycle of an incident and how you can be better prepared at each stage.
In the breaks you will also be able to visit our Exhibition Stands whilst enjoying a coffee and light lunch.
