PlanB Consulting

We help everyone, from multinational organisations to small businesses, to create their Plan B.

PlanB Consulting was born from a desire to equip organisations around the world with a robust, reliable ‘plan B’ for when a disruption strikes.

We guide some of the largest, most complex organisations in the world through the preparation, response and recovery activities for disruption to their business-as-usual.

Headquartered in Glasgow, UK, PlanB Consulting was founded in 2007 by Charlie and Kim Maclean-Bristol. For nearly 15 years we have pursued our mission, offering consultancy, training, exercising, auditing and technology services across the organisational spectrum – for business continuity, crisis management, incident management, emergency response and beyond.

Our approach is a focus on openness, flexibility and excellence: our leadership team actively contribute to the development of the industry standards and are at the forefront of best practice.

Over the years we have strengthened our team by bringing business continuity, crisis management and emergency response professionals on board who have contributed to our reputation as a leading resilience consultancy.
