Essential Seminar Announced – Collaborative Thinking: Counter-Terrorism for Professionals




A one-day seminar focused on counter-terrorism strategies for professionals is to take place on Thursday 5 October, in a Central London location. The day will feature expert speakers including Stuart Hyde QPM, Former Chief Constable of Cumbria Constabulary, who led on the Derrick Bird shooting incident, and former senior police officers, Rob Hoblin and Mark Corder, who are specialists in active shooters.

This interactive workshop will help organisations prepare against the threat of terrorism in a safe and educational environment.


  • Discover security essentials for your business; take corporate responsibility for terrorism risks
  • Receive practical advice and support from those with real world experience
  • Protect your employees and visitors; fulfil health and safety duties


The event will cover all aspects of counter-terrorism for businesses. With the horror of the UK’s recent terror attacks front of mind, this event will look at protection challenges for those running large venues as well as small operations. A panel of security experts will address the key challenges facing professionals in today’s volatile world, uncovering some of the often-overlooked resilience measures which businesses can implement to stay one step ahead of threats.


The recent high profile attacks on the Promenade Des Anglais in Nice, the Christmas Market in Berlin, Westminster Bridge and London Bridge in London, have brought the threat of vehicle attacks into sharp focus. This subject will be covered during the seminar, as well as how to deal with active shooters and knife attacks, and how to return to a state of normality after a major incident.


Aimed at any professional that has an interest in protecting office or retail environments, event spaces and tourist areas, this event will provide practical advice and support on physical protection, security management and operational planning.


Mark Walker, CEO of Cognitious Ltd, is looking forward to delivering this event on 5 October and comments: “Anyone that is responsible for employees, visitors or a building needs to be up to speed on the latest developments in security and counter-terrorism strategies. In the last decade, our business landscape has changed dramatically and we must all prepare for incidents to reduce risks and mitigate any impact if the worst should happen.”
