Today it was our Business Continuity Operations Group where we looked at a number of things, including some new web pages to let people know what to do in case of an incident. We also signed off the Business Impact Assessment templates that are going to be rolled out across the University to help departments with their business continuity planning by getting them to think about what they actually do, and what the impact would be of them not being able to do it. We also looked at some very helpful case studies written very honestly by Universities which had suffered incidents rangin from earthquakes, to fires, to evacuating student residences because of potential flooding. Lots of learning points, especailly around disruprion to learning and teaching, and the importance of good crisis communications.
Tonight I went to the opening of Marvelosa, an exhibition in Library of original art inspired by The
National Fairground Archive which celebrates 20 years this year. There were wonderful works by Pete McKee:
and Anthony Bennett - this sculpture was my favourite.
Definitely worth a visit - open to the general public until 8 January.
