Business Continuity Awareness Week

Business Continuity Awareness Weeks marks the start of the Vocal 2012 Prepare campaign. Vocal has announced the content of its campaign, as organisations focus on business continuity preparations for 2012, especially preparations for the London Games.

Trevor Wheatley-Parry, Vocal’s Managing Director commented, “BCAW is the perfect time to launch our 2012 Prepare campaign. With great awareness being placed on business continuity, now is the time for organisations to look at what needs to be done in the time remaining before the Olympic events start. We’ve been working with a number of public and private organisations, helping them prepare for the Games.

We’ve decided to share as much insight and best practice as possible, so any organisation can benefit from the experiences that we and our collaborating partners can divulge. We invite any organisation to follow our campaign to gain information, benchmark their efforts against other others and to share best practice as well. The aim of this activity is to do all that we can to help organisations be prepared for the disruptions that 2012 will bring.”

It is anticipated that UK organisations will need to operate against a backdrop of disruption beginning as early as May when the Torch Relay takes place. Vocal’s London 2012 Prepare campaign will run from March to October 2012. During the campaign, Vocal will share insight and knowledge gained during its preparedness activity thus far.

They are also collaborating with a number of partners to help organisations identifying their risks, ensure their Business Continuity Plan is fit for the Olympics, prepare communications strategies and ensure plans have been adequately tested and rehearsed. Organisations can follow Vocal on twitter @vocalltd for alerts on new information as it is released.
