Counter terrorism awareness


Published on

Friday February 13th is a day that will go down in history but for all the right reasons. It was the day that we held our most successful forum event to date. Threats and Opportunities saw a host of fantastic speakers from the City of London Police, to Public Health England present their strategies and feedback on what Londoners should be thinking about with their Business Continuity Planning. We learnt lots from the way that the City would respond to a terror attack through the ground breaking news that Man Flu is scientifically proven to be a real illness – there is a genetic in male make up that makes them handle the flu less than us ladies.

We had over 70 people in attendance on the day and for £40 a ticket we were highly praised on the fantastic location, lunch and value for money.

Here at the London forum we are striving to ensure that we are bringing you the events and topics that matter to you so we are welcoming your requests and ideas which can be emailed to ahead of our next event we are planning for September time.

The forum committee meet once a month to plan these events and much more so we would encourage you to get in touch with any request big or small. We are also working closely with the BCI HQ on our marketing efforts – we are aware that many of you have offices across the UK and globe and therefore do not always get our London information if it is not your registered forum so watch this space and expect more from us as we progress on the best way to achieve this. We are also very excited to announce we have a brand new website coming soon – so keep an eye out on in the next couple of weeks for our brand new update.

The presentations are attached from the day for all to benefit from, if you have any queries about this or require any other information about the London Forum you can contact or Laura Meadows on 07501495954.
