Security Industry Professionals, Thanks for visiting, and welcome.

I’m a U.K. based, security industry professional, but I’m involved in quite a lot of other things as well. Security is a vital, honourable, and worthy profession. I try to make the public, the media and indeed the industry, remember that!

Here’s just a little bit about what I’m doing at the moment.

I’m also the Special Projects manager for the excellent Bold Security Group, listed by the FT, 9 months after I joined them, as one of Europe’s fastest growing companies! Shortly after this, the UK Growth Index ranked Bold as the 10th fastest growing company. I look after their flagship Government national contract, generate marketing initiatives and help to promote the award winning (Security & Fire Excellence Awards 2021) lone worker safety system, Salus.

On 1st August 2020 Michael O’Sullivan and I launched THE brand new peer support network for all UK front line security sector operatives. The Guild of Security Industry Professionals has been set up to achieve several goals:

*To campaign on the issues that affect their jobs.

*To fight for increased standards across the security industry.

*To provide a positive narrative, and change perceptions of front line security professionals.

Until December 2021 I was honoured to be the Managing Editor of the ground breaking international security industry publication: The Professional Security Officer Magazine (TPSO). I’m still an enthusiastic promoter and contributor.

I’m also part of the Peer Publishing Ltd team, along with the renowned industry leader, Michael O’Sullivan, that has set up an important new database collating incidents of violence against UK security industry workers. This issue is frankly a National Scandal, and would never be tolerated if it were experienced by any other profession or sector of the workforce.

Security Workers are NOT SECOND CLASS CITIZENS and this state of affairs can not be ignored or accepted!

This new website will be an information resource for the media, policymakers and industry professionals. More importantly, it will be the weight behind the coming campaign, headed up by the Guild of Security Industry Professionals, to force central government, law enforcement and the media to finally acknowledge the problem, and act to #ProtectTheProtectors!

We are also looking at ways to improve training standards, and are working with the S.I.A. and other key industry stakeholders, to help steer the future of our industry.

In June 2019 I was honoured to be named the winner of the Security Institute’s prestigious “George Van Schalkwyk” award for outstanding contribution to the UK security industry.

Just a month later I was completely overwhelmed to be named 2019’s World #2 Influencer in Security Industry ‘Thought Leadership’, by IFSEC Global.

I’m immensely excited to announce that, from November 2022, I will be working with the outstanding, industry leading training giants, Get Licensed!

Get Licensed carefully vet all of their training partners to ensure the quality of the training offered, and with their size and national reach, they can quite simply negotiate the cheapest prices available online.

They also have big plans for the future and like me, are committed to help improve the UK security industry. Watch this space for the big news to come.

I continue to be an enthusiastic and engaged member of the U.K. Security Institute. I volunteered as a “Mentor” on the fantastic new SyI mentorship platform, and have sat on the MMAG (Membership Management Advisory Group) for some time. I was also Co-Chair of the Front Line Operations special interest group, established to engage the Security Institute more directly, in the future direction of those working in the “shop window” of our industry.

In April 2020 I was honoured to be awarded a Fellowship of the Institute of Strategic Risk Management. (ISRM)

In May 2020 I also took on a role on the International Foundation for Protection Officers (IFPO), UK Advisory Committee which I performed for some months. The IFPO has been instrumental in the professionalisation of frontline security roles in the U.S. and I will be working hard to get that ethos in to the U.K. industry…

Oh yes. And when I’m not doing all that I’m involved in a variety of training, and industry improvement initiatives. (Just in case anyone thought I spent my days with my feet up on a desk, smoking cigars!)
