Security Surveying & Design

Elysium Resort, Paphos, Cyprus; 11th - 15th March 2008





This very practical five-day course uses a real site to teach delegates how to carry out a security survey, how to make recommendations based on security management best practice and how to write up and present a survey report.   For an additional fee, we can provide post-course support for those who plan to carry out a security survey on return to their organisation, and who wish to be coached through the report writing process and receive individual survey report review, guidance and feedback.

Crowne Plaza Muscat, Oman; 20th-24th April

This five-day workshop is a comprehensive introduction to the essentials of corporate security management, and is designed to provide full-time security management staff and those for whom security is one of a number of responsibilities with the knowledge and confidence necessary to manage a successful loss prevention operation. The workshop takes the form of lectures, workshops, discussions and exercises, during which delegates, syndicated into groups, will have the opportunity to solve typical security problems.






Burj Al Arab Dubai, UAE; 17th - 19th February

Research consistently indicates that many businesses do not have effective crisis management or business continuity mechanisms in place. When crises hit such companies the scale of consequential loss and difficulties in business recovery are inevitably much higher than in companies which are prepared for such eventualities.


This highly participatory programme is designed to develop crisis management and business continuity management awareness and skills. It will provide the foundations for crisis management system planning and will enable delegates to contribute effectively to their respective corporate crisis management mechanisms. It also provides an overview of the planning, processes and resources necessary to create, develop and maintain a corporate-wide business continuity mechanism, capable of ensuring operational integrity in the event of a crisis.


The course will include a one-day crisis management simulation exercise, which is designed to provide a realistic context in which delegates, working in syndicates, can exercise the crisis management skills learned on the course. The exercise will be based around a series of crisis-level events which befall a national company and will test delegates' ability to address the needs of company and its stakeholders in a balanced manner whilst simultaneously ensuring that corporate interest remain paramount.
