We will lead a workshop to have an open and honest discussion focusing on best practice in safety, security, risk assessment and crisis management. Discussion topics include the resources you can use to assess risk at pitch stage, how to compile a practical risk assessment and crisis management planning. Learn from corporates, agencies and experts who have been there, done that – and survived!
