SQUARED APPLES utilises high calibre capability development advisers and business mentors with proven track records. With background experience from the military, local government, the education sector, academic research and industry, our staff can provide specific advice to assist in the development of your business and leadership models. Our staff have worked as advisors with The Cabinet Office on the development of BS:65000 Organisational Resilience and the MoD on the development of national guidance document JDP 02: Defence Contribution to UK Resilience Operations. As thought leaders, SQUARED APPLES has presented at the BCI World Conference and to the London Corporate Security and Resilience Networks (CSARN) group on the subject of building Organisational Resilience.
Through the use of our specialised Industry Holistic Approach to Learning Development (IHALD) Tool, we develop bespoke packages to meet the client’s individual requirements. Through focussed learning and development activities, Leadership and Management, team members will have the opportunity to work outside of their daily comfort zones within a safe and supportive environment. The sessions are based on interactive events, self-reflection, group work and team development exercises.
All of SQUARED APPLES' training materials are underpinned with academic knowledge and industry experience, with all our staff have recognised business skills and academic qualifications.

Guidance and Advice on Developing Organisational Resilience
All training and development events delivered by SQUARED APPLES are underpinned through the application of British or International Standards. Specific subjects, such as Business Continuity or Crisis Management, will refer to respective discipline standards; e.g. ISO:22301 or BS11200.
At a strategic level is the Capstone document of BS65000:2014 Organisational Resilience, which provides over-arching direction on the development and sustainment of organisational resilience. The aims and principles of these documents have been reviewed and recommended by UK Government as best practice for private and public sector organisations to adopt.
While policy can set the end state and give direction the way to achieve it through corporate strategy, how it is delivered is dependent upon the leaders, managers and workforce to implement the correct practices, procedures and culture to develop resilience as a core function of the organisation.
