On Tuesday, May 12th 2015 the Business Continuity Institute of Ireland held their Forum Meeting in the Printing House, Trinity College Dublin, in an event that was co-hosted by Slándáil.
Members at TCD, Stillwater and An Garda Síochána were invited to present some of the findings of the project from the first twelve months to an audience containing emergency managers, academic institutions and business continuity departments of Irish businesses. The day featured an open dialogue between audience members and the project. Feedback was positive toward the research that has been carried out to date, and the direction in which the project is moving.
The presentations focussed on research conducted so far, including discussions on Trust in Communications, State of Exception Theory and Geolocative systems including the INSPIRE database. Other talks at the meeting were given by members of the Business Continuity Institute, who discussed the importance of business continuity for Irish businesses.
Presentations from Slándáil were delivered by Cilian Fennell from Stillwater and Prof. Khurshid Ahmad from TCD. John Roche from An Garda Síochána chaired a presentation and discussion session with Prof. Ahmad and Damian Jackson from the Irish School of Ecumenics, TCD. Further presentations were delivered by Denis Woods and David West from the Irish Business Continuity Institute.
