BCI Virtual Workshops
With busy work schedules and multiple key diary commitments in place, taking a full day out of a busy working week to attend a workshop off site is not always possible. But what if the workshop came to you? The BCI has launched a series of Virtual Workshops to cater for this need, which allows you to participate without leaving your desk.
Key Benefits of BCI Virtual Workshops:
- Saves time – just one hour a day spread over four separate days
- Minimal disruption to your working day – easy to plan around – attend from your desk
- Saves money – no travelling or overnight costs – cost-effective
- Recorded sessions – if you can’t attend one of the sessions we will send you the link afterwards so you can view it before the next session.
How it works:
Just as in the traditional workshop, each of the Virtual Workshops is made up of several sessions, in this case four. The difference is that instead of them all taking place on one day, we have spread them across four separate days; each session lasts one hour and is hosted by a different presenter each day. The structure of each workshop is modular, each one handling a different aspect of the designated topic. See individual Workshop Schedules for starting times and key focuses.
The workshop will be facilitated using "Live Meeting". All you need is internet connectivity, a computer and a set of headphones! Make sure you test everything is working before you join. Joining instructions will be sent to you the day before detailing your login details. You will also be sent a list of delegates to facilitate networking during the session using the live chat functionality.
What if I can’t make one of these sessions?
Each live session is recorded. A link to the recording will automatically be sent to you if you miss one. As the structure of the workshop is modular, there is no specific requirement to have participated in the previous session before the next one takes place and missed sessions can be viewed post-event at a time that is convenient to you, but to ensure that you get the best value add from the full workshop, we do encourage full participation and recommend that any missed sessions are viewed prior to the next scheduled session where possible.
Who can attend?
The workshops are designed for anyone who is responsible for business continuity, risk management or disaster recovery in their organisation. You don’t have to be a BCI member to be able to register to attend, however there is a discounted rate available to Members. If you are not already a Member, but would like to benefit from the discounted rates, it might be worth considering becoming an Affiliate Member
