Your people are your organisations most critical asset. Personal resilience and wellbeing as well as security and safety are paramount in all organisations, and was the core focus of our 2017 seminar in Manchester.

Our guest speakers, from a range of backgrounds including policing, government, transport, fleet management, workplace resilience and wellbeing training, are experts in their field. Through a range of engaging sessions, our speakers shared a wealth of knowledge and first hand experiences providing insight and practical information for your organisation. 

The seminar also provided an invaluable opportunity for networking as health and safety professionals, building and facility managers, security professionals, HR professionals, fleet managers and more from across the greater Manchester region came together to discuss this important topic.
