Leading the way in Business Continuity

Needhams 1834 is an industry-leading business continuity and crisis management consultancy. We deliver real impact, value and lasting change for public and private sector clients worldwide.

Our reputation has been built on the positive results of our work since 1996. Our award-winning consultants are globally recognised. The BCI awarded our managing director Global Continuity & Resilience Consultant of the Year 2015. Since then, our consultants have won two CIR Newcomer of Year awards, a BCI Global BCM Newcomer of the Year award, as well as being finalists in numerous business continuity awards across the globe.

Needhams’ consultancy covers planning, training and exercising, taking you from the conceptual stages of a plan, through to simulation exercises. We advise all clients to increase in-house capacity wherever possible. Our training courses provide world-class practical expertise for excellent value.

We have worked with a wide range of clients, large and small, across a range of sectors, assessing their specific requirements and offering bespoke solutions. Our rate of client retention is high; once we have worked out a plan, often we need only work with you on an ad hoc basis to refresh and update your staff’s knowledge and awareness.

We offer consultancy services in:

  • planning, training, exercising and testing
  • crisis management
  • crisis management PR and media
  • risk management


If you want to increase your organisation’s resilience, training courses are one of the most effective and cost-efficient ways to achieve it.  We will be running A-Z of Business Continuity courses throughout the year; the perfect opportunity to grasp the foundations of BC and apply them to your organisation.

Response efficiency and recovery time will only ever be as strong as the preparedness of the people on the ground implementing the business continuity plan. See our training courses…
