An acknowledged expert in the field of business continuity, risk and crisis management, Andy Osborne has spent over thirty years helping organisations of all shapes and sizes, worldwide, across a broad range of industry sectors, to develop, implement, prove and maintain their business continuity capability. He is also an author of multiple books incl. Effective Business Continuity Management and Risk Management Made Easy.

He is a firm believer that a) business continuity management is about developing a capability, not simply writing a plan and b) the role of a consultant or adviser is to simplify apparently complex processes and present them in a way that is easy to understand, not the other way around. 

Andy provides the following consultancy services to clients, through his company, Acumen

  • Business risk assessment
  • Business continuity audit, ‘health check’ and capability review
  • Business impact analysis
  • Risk assessment
  • Business continuity strategy and plan development
  • Emergency response/crisis management planning
  • Exercising and testing
  • Training and awareness, including courses in business continuity management, risk management, crisis/incident management and crisis communications

His books, Tips of the Month and his entertaining and amusing blogs (which link his day-to-day business and personal life experiences to risk and business continuity management themes), all aim to demystify the subjects of business continuity, risk and crisis management and make them more accessible to people who live in the real world. A compilation of Andy’s blogs is available as an e-book, intriguingly titled Ski Boots and Celery.
