The Network Some of the team

Who we are The UK Network

The Network comprises of more than thirty of the UK's top resilience practitioners and companies - all experienced directors and leaders in their own right and many bringing-to-bear the strength and pedigree of their own cutting edge business'.

Selected by the UK's national resilience lead, and the network's Managing Director, Jon Hall QFSM, each advisor and partner is well-known and respected in their own field and comes professionally recommended with a proven and documented record of success.

Advisors have been selected from a broad range of disciplines to best support the commercial outcomes you are seeking be that business continuity, security reviews, market entry or penetration, specialist bid support, litigation defence/avoidance or any other critical resilience-related project delivery.

Your initial contact will either be with Jon or one of the other Principal Advisors (below), who will work with you to understand your needs and discuss with you the most appropriate available support. The Network approach will then ensure the support of a bespoke team is created to support their work with you.

It is this unique approach that means you get top quality advice to leverage benefit for your immediate needs. Importantly, it will also open doors for further business opportunities for you on the back of your current prospects.
