Increasingly in the world of big business, the decision makers are tasked with minimising risk, which means knowing more about their supply chain to ensure they can deliver on time, every time with minimal disruption should a spanner be thrown into the proverbial works!
Gareth Compton, MBCI, of Abide Consulting combines business continuity and business recovery management with normal operational activity, leading to less management workload, increased customer confidence and a reduction in costly disruptions.
Gareth has wealth of experience, travelling internationally for large corporate holdings, designing & implementing business continuity systems for an NHS Trust and making recommendations around governance for companies in the financial markets.
He would like to share this knowledge with business owners looking to take their businesses to the next level and requiring the relevant ISO documentation that will not only tick the boxes on the next tender document, but will also add value to the business in more ways than one.
If you want to supply the corporate world in 2013 then you had best get all your ducks in a row. They will only give out contracts where they know there is some resource resilience and the premier criteria is not price but what happens if…
Gareth’s mantra is PPPIG:
People, Process, Premises, Information, Governance
Ensuring you don’t make a pig’s ear of things you need to ensure you have a plan if senior management or the office cleaner drop’s down dead, what’s going to happen? What are the processes that need to be in place to ensure the smooth running of the business? Are the premises fit for purpose, what if there is a gas or water leak, what are you going to do? Where is your data, in cloud cuckoo land or backed up in multiple locations? And who makes the rules & are you abiding by them?
When was the last time you ran a disaster simulation?
Let’s see if you’ve got what it takes to land that next corporate gig? Call me on 01256 761556 and I’ll ask you 3 questions to which there are no right or wrong answers, they will simply allow me to paint a picture in my mind of where you are at. I will offer my thoughts and you can then decide if and how we move forward.
