Following membership feedback (thank you - keep it coming!), at noon on Tuesday 21st June we were fortunate to have Dr Aarti Anhal, founder of before nine, host a webinar to help in our personal growth as people, assisting us to be better armed to meet the challenges thrown at us. 

Resilience Conference 2022
Resilience Conference 2022

Date : 13th September, 2022

Venue : Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh

The Scottish Continuity Resilient Scotland Conference is Scotland’s leading conference for Business Continuity, Emergency Planning and Resilience professionals.

After an understandable absence in 2021, we return in 2022 even more determined to inspire and support our members and their organisations to not only survive but also thrive our way through the new normal. We have a proven track record of delivering a topical and interesting programme, providing excellent value for money to sponsors, exhibitors and attendees.

Once again, there will be exhibition stands to visit during registration, coffee and lunch breaks and an opportunity to talk to suppliers. Sponsorship and marketing opportunities exist for suppliers, educators and government advisory bodies to promote their products and services to the attendees. We are also particularly keen to welcome SMEs and can offer generous sponsorship discounts if you have been trading for less than 24 months.

Resilient Scotland Conference 2022 will afford you the opportunity of hearing about current and relevant industry practices; exposure to new technology and networking with like-minded peers, whilst showing an excellent ROI to your organisations. Come along and meet the Scottish Continuity team in the Resilience Zone to hear what’s happening in the future - network with your peers, make new friends and share experiences.

Scottish Continuity members attend the event FREE OF CHARGE, non-members are charged £125.

How does Scottish Continuity intend to meet our objectives this year and encourage new members to join up and get involved?
 

During COVID, face-to-face meetings and learning events was impossible for some months, just at the time when sharing good practice and reflecting on new initiatives was more important than ever.

As a result

  • We have replaced our regular Breakfast Meetings with a “Lockdown Café” on selected Fridays from 10am to 11am.  To ensure we add as much value to these sessions as possible, each session will be facilitated by a Board Member and will have a guest speaker who will present on a topical issue for 10 minutes and take questions.  Details of the guest speaker / topic together with Zoom dial-in particulars will be sent to Scottish Continuity Board Members on a regular basis. We also welcome any suggestions from Members as to what you would like to chat about.
  • 2 x Learning Events – we are reviewing the options of hosting 2 small learning events in the next 12 months and how we can effectively run these virtually, at the moment. (See our Personal Resilience event - Register here!)
  • Resilient Conference 2022 – We ae planning to host this event in the usual format this year! (Register here!)
  • Our usual 2 x social events will be put on hold for now and we will be resumed as soon as possible

Here at Scottish Continuity we wish to be accessible to all our members including students and to connect with the entire business continuity / disaster recovery / resilience planning / incident management community throughout the length and breadth of Scotland.

We would encourage as many organisations and individuals as possible to join the group and benefit from the many years of experience that our membership offers.  Joining Scottish Continuity is a great way for like-minded professionals to share knowledge, particularly in these difficult times.

Friday Mornings - 10am to 11am
The Scottish Continuity Group is dedicated to providing learning events to its members. 

During COVID, face-to-face meetings and learning events may be impossible for some months to come, just at the time when sharing good practice and reflecting on new initiatives is more important than ever.  

As a result, we are replacing our regular Breakfast Meetings (Edinburgh & Glasgow) with a “Lockdown Café” running on selected Fridays from 10am to 11am. To ensure we add as much value to these sessions as possible, each session will be facilitated by a Board Member, and will have a guest speaker (or two!) who will present on a topical issue for 10 minutes and take questions. 

Details of the guest speaker(s)/topic together with Zoom dial-in particulars will be sent to Scottish Continuity Members on a regular basis.We also welcome any suggestions from Members as to what you would like to chat about. 

If you are not a Member of Scottish Continuity, you can join for as little as £75 per year.  Details of how to join are HERE.
