On Thursday, 1st March 2018 the UK’s security sector will be given the opportunity to listen to a line-up of high-profile speakers, providing a platform to debate key issues facing the industry.

Confirmed speakers include, The Rt Hon Greg Clark MP – Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy; Ian Dyson QPM – Commissioner, City of London Police; Andrew Thomson, Director of Property Services, The Shard.  Plus, a discussion with former offenders about how they tackle security and why they think it so often fails.  The full programme will be announced shortly.

Professor Martin Gill, founder and director of the OSPAs comments:

“The OSPAs are about recognising excellence, the truly outstanding performers who project the best image of security and all the good it can do.  The aim of this summit is to contribute to excellence by bringing different thought leaders together; people who excel and can offer their own insights for debate. Providing the opportunity to listen to what the opinion formers think and contribute to the discussion about how we can improve what security does and how it is perceived.  The quality of what we have in the future will depend on the quality of debate we have now.”

Gill, further adds

“this event is open to all participants in the security sector and its stakeholders and I urge everyone to consider attending and be ready to pose questions to a panel of influential speakers.”

The summit takes place at the Royal Lancaster London , Hotel and is organised by the Outstanding Security Performance Awards with the support of the Security Commonwealth.

Doors will open to the event at mid-day, lunch will be provided, and a comprehensive exhibition of products and services will be on display.  The event is set to finish around 16.30 and the OSPAs Awards dinner will follow at 18.30.
