STL Communications has hosted a series of free half-day seminars about business continuity in conjunction with the Institute of Directors. The seminars were held at the Grand Prix winning Brawn GP headquarters in Brackley, Northamptonshire.
Speakers provided a number of practical solutions for business continuity including what to put in a 24-hour survival kit, the easy way to re-establish telephone communication with customers, IT recovery and how to protect the integrity of your data communication lines. In today’s economic climate it might be difficult to justify expenditure on business continuity, but the 90 delegates left the seminars convinced that they need a plan to secure the intellectual property of their business against a disaster whether it be an IT failure, theft, a natural disaster or even a pandemic such as swine flu.
Matt Harris from Brawn GP told delegates “We rely on technology that works 100% of the time to get our cars round the track faster that any of the other teams, so business continuity is critical to the success of Brawn GP.” Delegates enjoyed a tour of the Brawn GP facilities after the presentations.
Philip Donigan, Sales Director of STL commented, ”We were delighted with the success of these seminars at Brawn GP, with whom we have a long working relationship for supplying their telephone systems, lines and calls. Communications are a critical part of business continuity planning and STL has a number of solutions to offer organisations that can make their business secure, but can also save costs.”
