Berwicks provides services that enhance an organisation’s resilience through developing personal leadership and management skills, implementing crisis management processes, reviewing plans and developing organisational structures.
Events such as the Japan earthquake, Fukushima, Euro-zone instability, Deepwater Horizon, tsunamis, the collapse of several large financial institutions, avian ‘flu, extreme weather, volcano eruptions, Buncefield, Three Mile Island and various terrorist attacks highlight the need for strong leadership, clear decision-making, the right plan and appropriately prepared personnel to ensure your organisation’s survival. Berwicks will work with you to achieve this.
We have provided our services to the UK nuclear industry since 1999 and continue to be the atomic power sector’s sole provider of command and control services. Other clients include the HSE, NHS, Local Government and FTSE 100 boards. We learned our trade in the military and then moved into the private and public sectors, using our wide experience of leadership, crises and their management to inform our services, all of which are designed with your needs in mind.
We aim to enhance your crisis management capability and, ultimately, profitability by bringing out the best in your leaders at all levels.
