Lyndon Bird to step down as technical director of the Business Continuity Institute

The Business Continuity Institute has announced that Lyndon Bird FBCI is to stand down from his role of technical director.

In nine years as technical director, Lyndon has ensured that the BCI continues to have an effective and consistent voice on all matters of business continuity management within the business, government, regulatory and academic communities. During his time, the Good Practice Guidelines have become a well-respected source of global best practice, and the BCI has contributed significantly to the development of national and international standards.

On announcing his decision, Lyndon said: “Although the BCI's work is ongoing, I feel my role as the main catalyst has changed. The BCI has grown to the point where it is staffed by a wide range of very competent people who are more than capable of dealing with the future challenges the Institute and the discipline might face. It is therefore an ideal time for me to move on and seek other interesting and challenging projects.”

On what lies ahead for him, Lyndon explained that "the opportunities created by the emergence of a wide-scale global resilience movement are very exciting and I look forward to continuing with my diverse writing, editing, teaching, commentating and consulting activities wherever in the world such opportunities emerge. I will no doubt be working with many BCI members in the future, albeit in a different capacity, but still with the same enthusiasm and passion for our subject.”
