"We're delighted to make this announcement as a greater involvement in the BCI Partnership will enable us to make a significant contribution to the business continuity management industry coalition," said Isobel Nicholas, Director of Communications for Steelhenge. "Steelhenge has an excellent relationship with the BCI, and to be elected onto the Steering Group, by both fellow business continuity practitioners and consumers of business continuity products and services, demonstrates their confidence in our ability to make a valuable contribution to the BCI Partnership at a strategic level." Isobel added; "We're also pleased because being part of the steering group underpins the fact that Steelhenge is an innovative organisation committed to promoting business continuity management practice and we have been recognised as being prepared to invest time and effort in activities that benefit the industry as a whole."
When asked what the BCI Partnership Steering Group's objectives are, Isobel replied; "The BCI Partnership works hard to promote business continuity management for the benefit of BCI members, the organisations they work for and other partners. The BCI Partnership promotes the goals of the Business Continuity Institute through lobbying at a governmental level, commissioning research to support investment in business continuity along with many other sector specific activities," Isobel explained. "One of its key roles is to raise awareness of business continuity issues and promote better understanding of business continuity management through awareness campaigns and the global Business Continuity Awareness Week. In addition, the BCI Partnership publishes thought leadership papers and runs events including workshops and conferences for networking, peer support and knowledge sharing. With such a critical role in support of the industry, we are looking forward to working with other members of the Steering Group over the next three years," Isobel concluded.
