Role: Senior Consultant
I have worked with a number of clients to develop and deliver bespoke incident and crisis management plans, training and exercises. I have also conducted gap analysis and facilitated table top exercises to identify improvement opportunities in business continuity arrangements. I enjoy working closely with clients and their industry regulators and stakeholders to develop a holistic management system that allows for an effective response to adverse events. Recent projects include a review of business continuity plans for a distribution company, a crisis management exercise for a private bank and a business continuity gap analysis for a public-sector organisation.
Prior to joining PlanB, I was a Project Manager at a training company in the oil and gas sector. This role involved the development and roll out of incident and crisis management plans, role-specific training for emergency responders and delivery of training and major simulated exercises. I was also a member of an incident management team that responded on behalf of several operators. In this team, I undertook the roles of HR responder and relative response call taker.
I have delivered a range of exercises both in the UK and abroad. These have included a major COMAH exercise for a gas terminal that involved a number of live players including the emergency services, and government-assessed pollution exercises involving multiple teams, regulators and stakeholders participating in several locations.
