A nifty fifty?

It’s finally caught up with me. I tried to ignore it and hoped it would go away but whatever I did it was destined to happen anyway. I was utterly powerless to prevent it. Resistance was futile. In the end I just had to take it on the chin. I’m talking about my recent birthday. One with a zero at the […]

Live from The Abersoch Open 2012

A prelude to the Abersoch Open 2012

Long-standing readers a) need to be congratulated on your staying power and b) might remember that this time last year I completely ignored the fact that my blogs are supposed to be about business continuity management and gave a blow-by-blow account of the goings on at the 2011 Abersoch Open golf tournament.

Oz’s Business Continuity Tip of the Month : “A numbers game”

Most crisis or incident management plans contain lists of contact details (in fact some plans contain little else, but that’s another story).
