Review by Anne Kennedy

I stumbled on the Scotland Continuity website by chance and was intrigued at the idea of the Breakfast Surgeries; my colleague Aileen Smith and I decided to attend the meeting on 25 January which was held conveniently close to our building.

We both found it a useful event even for someone who would be regarded as experienced in Business Continuity - we are perceived as "the experts" by others, but we consider ourselves "paper experts" only as we've never had to deal with anything other than minor disruptions.

We both picked up useful reminders about cascading information to new and existing staff - it's better to have moans "not Business Continuity again" than trying to update people during an emergency. Our location like many others in Edinburgh has been affected by the ongoing tram works and what we originally planned had to be adapted because of forces outwith our control to make sure our Business Continuity Plans remain fit for purpose.

And finally we were reminded about not looking too much at the emergency side of an incident, but to focus on the recovery of our business.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the surgeries to anyone who has to think about Business Continuity whether you are an amateur or expert!
