Inverroy Crisis Management MD and Head of Inverroy Digital have been selected as finalists for the Business Continuity Institute (BCI) awards.
Two senior team members from Edinburgh-based Inverroy Crisis Management have been selected as finalists at the Business Continuity Institute (BCI) Europe Awards 2023.
The company’s Managing Director Matthew Wardner has been nominated for the Resilience and Continuity Consultant Award, while Head of Inverroy Digital Kirsty Bremner has been nominated for the Newcomer Award.
Matthew said: “To be shortlisted for the BCI Europe Consultant of the Year award is a tremendous honour. As the founder of Inverroy Crisis Management Ltd, it gives me huge pride in the team and the work that we do and that Kirsty Bremner is also shortlisted as Newcomer of the Year. This demonstrates our commitment to developing the next generation of resilience professionals.”
Matthew is seen as a strong influencer in the sector and chairs the Scottish Continuity Group, a not-for-profit organisation working to improve resilience in Scotland, for which he delivered a hugely successful conference this year. He is also driving the group’s development.
He has built his reputation through total commitment to his clients. Matthew’s work and that of his unique team of dedicated professionals have given Inverroy a global presence in the business continuity marketplace and have helped the company achieve a remarkable 100 per cent customer retention rate.
His nomination for the BCI Award highlights the way he used his leadership skills to achieve ISO22301 accreditation for the business, driving the demanding process forward. As a result of his hard work and focus, Inverroy won its accreditation at the first attempt and has maintained it since.
Matthew also drove the launch last year of a new company offering, Inverroy Digital. This helps clients by simplifying resilience planning by generating plans for you and storing them securely.
Kirsty joined Inverroy two years ago, coming to the organisation with degrees in petroleum geology and international business management. As Head of Inverroy Digital, she has worked tirelessly to build the new platform.
Colleagues within the crisis and consultancy sector have been highly impressed by her ability to find common ground with others and to be assertive and direct while remaining respectful and polite.
Kirsty has also worked hard to interact with clients, tailoring projects to their specific needs and teaching colleagues how the new digital operation works and how it benefits all users. In doing so, she has made everyone’s lives easier.
She has shown remarkable skill and adaptability and demonstrated that she can work with all levels of staff. Kirsty is also Secretary of the Scottish Continuity Group, and she carries out this role alongside her day job.
The BCI Europe Awards 2023 recognise the outstanding contributions of business continuity, risk and resilience professionals living and operating within Europe.
The winners of the awards will be announced during a virtual ceremony on 17 August. Those securing top places will go on to be automatically entered into the BCI Global Awards to be held in London later this year.
