This exciting collaboration gives you access to Keith’s highly regarded ‘Introduction to Crowd Safety and Risk Analysis’ course. A great way to advance your existing events career.
Keith has consulted on some of the world’s largest, and most challenging crowd safety projects. He has lectured at the UK Cabinet Office Emergency Planning College (EPC) where he contributed to a wide range of crowd safety related courses.
