(Replacing "Breakfast Briefings - Virtually!)

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” every Friday from 10am to 11am, starting on Friday 8th May.  To ensure we add as much value to these sessions as possible, each session will be facilitated by Gordon Mackie, Associate Board Member (or a representative) 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 weekly 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 and wish to join for as little as £50 per year.  Details of how to join are HERE.

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 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 have replaced our regular Breakfast Meetings with a “Lockdown Café” every Friday from 10am to 11am.  To ensure we add as much value to these sessions as possible, each session will be facilitated by Gordon Mackie, Associate Board Member (or a representative) 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 weekly 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.
  • Resilient Conference 2021 – we are considering the appropriate timing for our annual Resilient Scotland Conference (usually held in February) taking cognisance of government easing of Covid-19; social distancing and realism of when is safe and relevant to hold a face-to-face conference.
  • 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. Membership is from as little as £50 per individual member – details about joining can be found at www.scottishcontinuity.com/join_us
