Organisational resilience to be examined at Bucks New University Breakfast Briefing

Buckinghamshire New University academic Louisa Berry will be speaking about the importance of making an organisation resilient at the next Breakfast Briefing to be held at University Campus Aylesbury Vale on Friday 23 February.

Berry is course leader for the MSc in Organisational Resilience at Bucks New University. The Breakfast Briefing, which is to run under the heading of ‘Business-Critical: Harnessing Organisational Resilience’, is supported by Buckinghamshire Business First and takes place at the Aylesbury Vale Campus in Walton Street, Aylesbury from 8.00 am-10.00 am.

“My Breakfast Briefing is aimed at the novel start-up through to the well-established company,” said Berry, “and will particularly appeal to operational managers and executives. Organisational resilience is the ability of organisations and individuals to be flexible and adaptable to any changing situations. This could range from how prepared they are and able to respond to incidents like flooding, staff being off work ill with flu or terrorist threats through to being enterprising and recognising that a business needs to both grow and develop. I believe this philosophy begins with the individual and the culture in the organisation.”

Berry went on to state: “Attendance at the Breakfast Briefing is a great and easy opportunity to find out the key ways in which you can make your organisation more robust. I will introduce the key facets of organisational resilience including protection and performance. The world is changing fast and these tenets are vital when it comes to the continued smooth running of a given organisation.”

The event includes a free breakfast complete with teas and coffees. There will also be networking opportunities.
