In judging this category, recognition will be given to practitioners that excel in business continuity, resilience and operational risk management. Among the factors considered will be the use of creative ideas to resolve problems, innovation in the actual techniques used, the instigation of a resilience culture in the organisations worked with, the strengthening of relations between service suppliers, insurers and business continuity and resilience professionals. Applicants might also consider submitting their views on the development of the profession.
