Berkshire Business Continuity Forum
The Berkshire Business Continuity Forum (BBCF) was founded several years ago with the aim of raising awareness of business continuity and wider resilience issues to local organisations in Berkshire.
The group has gone through periods of activity as well as quieter times. During the spring of 2015 a small group of members co opted as a lead team and decided to give it a kick start. The volunteers are involved in and have experience of business continuity in some way, shape or form, and all give their time and contributions for free.
We are here for you. Our meetings are held locally and are informal and relaxed. Tea and coffee (and usually biscuits) are provided. So come along to a meeting and mix with your fellow professionals. Whether you are a sole trader or large company rep there will be like-minded individuals who can share their business continuity experiences. These may just be useful in helping you survive a crisis.
Over the years we have organised and delivered a number of events. We have held events focusing on threats and vulnerabilities in the Thames Valley as well as winter resilience planning:
