Russell-Cooke has contributed to a guide for non-executive directors produced by Resilience First.
Resilience First, in partnership with Pool Re, has just published the second edition of the digital Guide for Non-Executive Directors on Operational Resilience.
The report delivers essential information to assist with Board discussions on resilience broken down into People, Place, Preparation, Process and Performance. A number of Russell-Cooke contributors wrote the section on Place.
Resilience First is a not-for-profit membership organisation with the mission to ‘improve urban resilience for business communities in the UK and beyond’. It originated from the Security and Resilience Network at London First. Russell-Cooke has been a member since 2018 and has previously contributed to a report on the return to the workplace for SMEs.
Consultant Emma Shipp said: “The oversight, challenge and support that NEDs bring to a business is more important than ever with pressures coming from all sides in today's commercial landscape. A NED can bring a different voice to the board and a wealth of experience which makes them invaluable at spotting opportunities as well as mitigating risks. Resilience will be a key concern for NEDs who take the long view of the viability of a business and, where business premises are concerned, will be keen to ensure flexibility is baked in to the greatest extent possible.”
The report was launched on 7 July 2022.
Operational Resilience - A Guide for Non-Executive Directors is available through a sign-up page on an online portal.
