Founded in late 2006, Business And National Government (BANG) networking group was formed for business continuity professionals who work in the private and public sectors, providing an informal environment controlled by the "Chatham House Rule", somewhere where like-minded individuals are able to discuss and share information. As such BANG has become the antithesis of a formal "members", association, dedicated to knowledge transfer within specif subject matter areas, providing professionals membership of a trusted group where they are able to transfer knowledge.
Today BANG communicates with its members via www.bangportal.com, LinkedIn, Eventbrite, and Twitter, with groups formed in London, Bristol, Leeds, Greater Manchester, Scotland, Dublin, New York and Qatar. True to form, BANG's Unique Selling Point (USP) is that it continues to be "FREE" for any like-minded professional to join, having today more than 2,400 members. The 'BANG' community has not altered its desire to maintain an informality that it expressed at its very first meeting.
As BANG moves into its 12th year, the group continues to expand and influence the resilience community, specifically with monthly events held in London, where it continues to be well attended, averaging between 40 to 60 attendees. To meet this growth and for BANG London to move forward it has moved its monthly meetings to "BANGERS" Bar and Grill on Wilson Street, near Liverpool Street Station, London, EC2M 2TE.
