Business continuity: a force for leadership development

Ricardo’s crisis management lead consultant, Chris Lewis, recently contributed to Continuity&Resilience Magazine Q2 2019 issue with his view on the role of non-technical skill development in crisis management and crisis response.


Ricardo has significant experience working with a wide range of customers across multiple sectors to improve their organisational resilience, both by developing and testing their procedures and policies, but also by working to directly improve and develop the capabilities of those in the response team.

Ricardo is delighted to work with Continuity&Resiliance and to contribute to the discussion on how Business Continuity has grown into the profession it is today.

This can result in an ineffective response and consequent negative impact on business continuity."
