A nice cup of tea

I do like a nice cup of tea. In fact tea is pretty near the top of my all-time favourite drinks list  (see “An icy crisis” and “Open all hours” for one of the others). Five or six cups a day is the norm when I’m at home or in the office. And I have to say that Mrs […]

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).

A white Christmas

To quote a certain Mr Crosby, I’m dreaming of  a white Christmas – specifically, the one I’ve recently returned from. The Oz family spent a fantastic week, up to and including Christmas day, skiing with our friends in a place called Pila in the Val d’Aosta in Italy.

Oz’s Business Continuity Blog : “Out of the blue”

In a few of my previous blogs (‘Fit for the job?‘, ‘In the limelight‘, ‘Mid-life crisis management‘ and ‘A team effort‘)  I’ve mentioned that I’m a re-invigorated hockey player, having been dragged kicking and screaming back into the sport by my sons a few years ago. In fairness, ‘re-invigorated’ is my word for it – some of my […]

Oz’s Business Continuity Tip of the Month : “A personnel challenge?”

One assumption that’s very often made is that the HR department will handle any and all people issues that might arise as a result of invoking our incident management or business continuity plans. Which, on the surface, probably seem like a reasonable assumption to make. But let’s just take a moment to think about what […]
