The Resilience Advisors Network (Europe)

Who we are The European Resilience Team

The Network comprises of more than thirty top resilience and civil protection experts across the Community - all experienced directors and leaders in their own right and many bringing-to-bear the strength and pedigree of many years of operating in their own specialised fields.

Selected by the network's Managing Director, Jon Hall QFSM, each advisor and partner is well-known and respected in their own field and comes professionally recommended with a proven and documented record of success.

Advisors have been selected from a broad range of disciplines to best support the consortium outcomes you are seeking be that for the devopment of world-class guidance, training or trainer provision, disaster exercise management, Mechanism research projects or any other critical resilience-related project delivery.

Your initial contact will either be with Jon or one of the other Advisors operating across Europe. They will work with you to understand your needs and opportunities and discuss with you the most appropriate available support. The Network approach will then ensure that you get a bespoke team comprising of only the very best!

It is this unique approach that means you get top quality advice to leverage benefit for your bids and projects. Importantly, it will also open doors for further business opportunities for you on the back of your current prospects.
