Jon Seaton, Operational Resilience and Business Continuity Manager, Tesco Bank
5 years into a Project Management Career at RBS Jon was asked if he was interested in being involved in Pandemic Planning, and he thought that it sounded much more interesting than project management! So back in 2005 he went from planning for projects that he hoped would happen to planning for activities that he hoped would never happen! Sadly some of those things have, but he has always enjoyed his time within Business Continuity and Crisis Management, even if that has included the Financial Services Crisis and several high profile incident since! Knowing that unless things go wrong, Business Continuity is never at the forefront of people’s priorities Jon’s key interest is working with the business to understand how we can do BC better and more efficiently. As part of this Jon has been leading the Scottish Forum of the BCI for a number of years and is always keen to hear of new ways of working more effectively within Business Continuity.
