23 January 2017 – Preparing for future challenges
How do you build personal and organisational resilience? Tips and advice from the British Safety Council seminar speakers
The political and social events of 2016 have proven that one thing that is constant in the modern world is change. This trend will no doubt continue into 2017, so to help organisations anticipate, prepare and respond to change in order to survive and prosper, the British Safety Council is running a half-day seminar focused on building personal and organisational resilience.
The seminar, to be held in Manchester at Double Tree by Hilton Manchester, Piccadilly, on 22 February 2017, will focus on ways of managing organisational security and safety, as well as workplace resilience and personal wellbeing. The speakers come from a wide range of sectors such as policing and security, government, transport, training and development.
Louise Ward, Policy, Standards and Communications Director, said: “2017 is set to be a challenging year with political and economic uncertainty associated with Brexit and a new US President, as well as growing threats to both physical and cyber security. However, planning ahead and investing in people can boost resilience of both organisations and individuals so they can respond to challenges as they arise.
“Our seminar speakers, experts in their field, will share tips and advice and inspire the audience by example, especially people such as Nathan Douglas, double Olympian and Captain of the British Athletics team for the European Athletics Championships 2016, who will talk about his experience of building personal resilience.”
The seminar will also provide valuable networking opportunities, bringing together not only health and safety professionals from different industry sectors but also security experts and HR professionals, as well as other people concerned with organisational and personal resilience from across the Greater Manchester region.
