We are incredibly proud of the contribution Vocal has made to the CSSC initiative and of our on-going work in providing innovation and support to public and private sectors across the world.

The BCI Global Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of business continuity professionals and organisations from all over the world. Those selected as award winners are highly esteemed within the industry, and can expect international recognition for their efforts in advancing the profession.

The award was presented to Vocal for their joint work with the Cross-sector Safety and Security Communications Partnership (CSSC) during the summer of 2012. Vocal Ltd teamed up with key figures from London’s public and private sectors to help create a communications infrastructure that would help to safeguard London during the Olympic Games. This unique and technologically advanced collaboration between the Metropolitan Police, the Home Office, London First and numerous business sector groups was designed to ensure that London stayed connected, and consequently as safe as possible, throughout the summer Olympics.

The work completed by Vocal and the CSSC partnership during 2012 now stands as a blueprint for effective communication in other event-hosting cities. In addition to winning the BCI Global Award for ‘Best Continuity Innovation of the Year’, the last year has seen the CSSC partnership receiving many accolades, including winning ‘Best Contribution to Continuity and Resilience’ at the CIR Awards and shortlisting for the Emergency Planning Awards.

Speaking after the BCI Global Awards, Vocal’s Managing Director Trevor Wheatley-Perry said: “We are incredibly proud of the contribution Vocal has made to the CSSC initiative and of our on-going work in providing innovation and support to public and private sectors across the world. We would like to thank the Business Continuity Institute for recognising the CSSC project and Vocal’s work in this prestigious award, and for its own essential role in supporting our industry and highlighting the importance and contribution of our work.”
