The second OSPAs Thought Leadership Summit returns on 28th February 2019

On Thursday 28 February, professionals from the UK’s security sector will once again be given the opportunity to listen to the views aired by a line-up of first-class speakers and contribute to matters affecting the industry at the Thought Leadership Summit which runs on the afternoon of the 2019 UK Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs).

Katy Bourne, Police and Crime Commissioner for Sussex will speak about how businesses and the private security sector can better engage to complement the work of the police. Dr Glen Kitteringham will discuss new global research that invites a rethink on the way we treat and manage security officers. Ch Supt Nick Aldworth, Counter Terrorism National Coordinator – Protect and Prepare, will present an overview of counter terrorist activity and the development of public/private sector collaboration to combat the terrorist threat. The event will close with a debate, ‘Is the Security Industry Authority stifling the development of the security sector?’ involving well-known thought leaders Stuart Lowden and Geoff Zeidler.

Gill further adds “thought leadership is about inspiring new insights, rethinking conceptions and ideas that we have for too long left unchallenged. The closing debate promises to be lively and thought to provoke, and I urge everyone to consider attending and be ready to challenge and pose questions”.

The summit takes place at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London and will be supported by a comprehensive exhibition of products and services. Doors will open at mid-day, lunch will be provided, the event is set to finish around 16:30 and the OSPAs awards dinner will follow at 18:45.

Sponsorship and exhibition space is available. To find out more and to book your place, visit the OSPAs website or call 07785 569719.
