In the face of threats from pandemics, industrial accidents, severe weather and terrorism, organisational resilience remains essential to emergency preparedness. In order to ensure an effective crisis response, robust community resilience and coordinated collaboration between services, it is vital that stakeholders remain at the forefront of best practice in anticipating, reacting to and recovering from major civil incidents.

At this year’s annual resilience conference, delegates will be updated on the latest government policy governing the strengthening of UK resilience. They will consider a wide range of potential civil contingencies from coastal flooding to infectious diseases. They will hear from a range of key public figures, including representatives from central and local government, police, fire services, health and the voluntary sector. Through listening to speeches, participating in interactive sessions, hearing panel discussions and networking with peers, delegates will be brought to the forefront of the current best practice in resilience, risk management and business continuity.

The 3rd Annual UK Resilience Conference will give delegates the opportunity to examine the best approaches to ensuring resilience against a range of threats. Delegates will hear the latest on national strategies, listen to a number of unique case studies and hear a range of key players discuss the best approaches to achieving resilience through cooperation. Delegates will be better prepared and more aware of the solutions available to protect the country to the best of their ability.
