Bizcont: Planning for the Unexpected

The Heath 07/12/2011

"Superbly organised event with interesting and knowledgeable speakers. Glad I attended and would certainly attend other events organised by InfoLab21"

"I thought the event was well worth the time spent attending, I wasn’t so much interested in the insurance aspects but the other speaker content and opportunity to network was excellent."

SCC MSc Showcase

"Very topical, useful and informative" Ken Garner, Safetok

"Some positive information in the work undertaken at the University dealing with some real world issues" Lee Conroy, Business Logic Limited

"The event covered a wide range of information and security related material - from business compliance to child safety online - something for everyone!" Tony Wilson, Indelible Data

#BizCont: A Resilient & Dynamic Approach

Penrith 26 July 2011

‘InfoLab21 is a wonderful facility for the NW. Their events are free and allow access to specialised speakers in diverse roles. Any manager should make the effort to attend these sessions as they provide a high quality education in topic areas that may appear frightening to many. Recent sessions on Linkedin and IT security were illuminating. The open discussions are valuable and the opportunity to network is hard to beat. Well done Lancaster University.’ Anon

Brunch Bytes - Social Media

Lancaster 19 May 2011

‘The background and lecture was excellent’

‘It was great to find an event that went behind the scenes rather than focussing on the technology’

‘Would have liked a little more discussion on Gamification slides but not at expense of other content!' Fiona Finch

‘(I would have liked) less of lecture based workshop and more of to-do workshops with interaction’ Sagar Paliwal, Sectorgraph

  • Reply:Brunch Bytes briefings have a varying degree of interaction and hands-on activity, which is mainly dictated by the subject matter. Some topics offer more opportunities for workshop activity than others, we will try to include as much as possible in future events.

  • Reply: We are currently exploring the opportunity of online events, through both live streaming and previous recordings being made available online after the event. We have run one trial on this so far but hope to do this as standard practice in the future.

‘Just when you thought you weren’t susceptible to advertising, Paul showed how your basic motivators are exploited as a marketing toll every day’ (Phil Northall, CING)

‘Great presentation for marketers and a good reminder on some basic psychology and human motivations and how these apply in the modern world. Thought provoking on how we can engage with our customers/employees’ (Cath Murphy, Heaven Spa)
