In-house training courses tailored to the specific needs of your business.


Acumen provides a range of training courses and workshops to assist your staff to gain and practise the skills required for effective business continuity, risk and crisis management.

The courses and workshops are tailored to the specific needs of your business rather than being ‘off the shelf’ packages, and are presented and facilitated by highly experienced consultants. They are delivered at a location that best suits the client – for instance at your own premises or at a local hotel or conference facility.

As an alternative to onsite training, all of our courses can be delivered as a series of 1-2 hour web-based sessions.

Topics include :

  • Business continuity management fundamentals
  • Crisis/incident management fundamentals
  • Risk management fundamentals
  • Human aspects of business continuity/incident management
  • Exercising and testing
  • Media interview skills and crisis media management
  • Social media crisis management

In addition, we are often asked to develop and facilitate workshops on a variety of topics, such as :

  • Incident management/business recovery team briefings/awareness sessions
  • Incident management/crisis communications planning
  • Business impact analysis
  • Developing continuity strategies and plans
  • Exercising and testing
  • Scenario-based exercises and workshops
