I joined PlanB Consulting after completing an MSc Management at the University of Edinburgh Business School. My passion lies in helping organisations to plan for and mitigate business critical incidents. I thoroughly enjoying working with the variety of clients which PlanB provides services to.

In my time with the business so far I have delivered a variety of projects. I have taken over the project management of existing clients and helped implement business continuity. This has included working with different organisations in the public sector, including exercising plans and assisting in reviewing an updating BIAs and BCPs.

Similarly, I have worked with a software company who are continuing full lifecycle implementation and are now at a more mature embedding stage. The tasks of this project consisted of managing the year plan and preparing for upcoming ISO audits.

Working with new clients provides different challenges. I am currently managing a project with a manufacturing company who are aiming to achieve ISO 22301 certification, from this I have learned about developing a business continuity management system which can meet the required standards of an ISO audit.

Recently PlanB have helped a large UK based logistics firm conduct a review and update of their BCP, I have also been project manager with this client.

Prior to joining PlanB Consulting I worked as a Business Researcher in the public sector in Scotland, providing bespoke support to growing and exporting businesses. Outside of work I am currently studying Spanish, and take a keen interest in football.
