The global landscape has experienced a rather monumental change over the last year, with security being more relevant than ever as we go into 2017.

The first Total Security Summit of the year is determined to address these issues and uncertainties in a bespoke two-day event for security professionals.

Meet, share, connect and debate business relevant to your current and future projects with matchmade face-to-face meetings, experience a day of dining, drinks and discussion as you network with fellow business professionals and attend seminars covering a range of relevant topics.

Reaching a landmark age in political global challenges and uncertainties, it’s vital to prepare for the future, protecting crowded areas, addressing terror threats and discussing counter-terrorism is Dr Anna Maria Brudenell, Lecturer in Military and Security Studies,
Cranfield Defence and Security for the first seminar on Global Security Strategy.

As terror threats continue to rise and evolve without warning, discussing and understanding the implications is crucial to develop your security in a crisis. Chris Phillips, Managing Director, International Protect and Prepare Security Office (IPPSO) is presenting seminar 2 on Crisis Management and Communications

Video surveillance is being used in greater quantity and with higher quality expectations, with Britain among the leaders in CCTV operation, but are the benefits worth the cost? With few resources and increasing legal parameters, Simon Lambert, Independent CCTV Consultants, Lambert Associates is discussing  CCTV and Video Surveillance in seminar 3.

John Marsden, Head of Fraud, Equifax, is discussing how to identify and tackle theft as it happens, assessing risk, detecting threats and ensuring on-going training in Seminar 4: Keeping your Business’ Cash and Assets Safe and Secure

Going into your second day, and following morning networking, James Willison, Founder, Unified Security Ltd goes digital. As our dependency on technology grows, many companies are more vulnerable than ever, between data and privacy risks to ransomware, hackers are becoming more sophisticated, and businesses need to adapt quickly for Seminar 5 on Cyber Crime – the United Security Response.

With a continuing rise in companies at risk of fraud, from physical fraud to high level hacking, security needs to be tight across the board, and the final seminar before more discussion and networking addresses these fears. Fraud Prevention with David Lee, Fraud Prevention Manager, Transport for London sees the summit almost to a close.

Taking place between the 13-14 March at the Radisson Blu Hotel, London Stansted, this year’s Total Security Summit is the industry go-to for professionals.

With the next Total Security Summit taking place on March 13th & 14th at the Radisson Blu London Stansted, we thought we’d give you a few reasons to book your place at the event nice and early.

Put simply, if you’re looking for a security industry event in the London area, you’ve found it.

First and foremost, the Total Security Summit provides a platform for highly-targeted one-to-one meetings between industry professionals and trusted suppliers. But it also comes with a full programme of educational seminars, allowing all attendees to increase their industry knowledge and develop their skill sets while on site.

The Security Summit. Security industry event - London
Plus, there’s full hospitality throughout, including lunches, drinks reception and an evening gala dinner, offering copious networking opportunities to build new business relationships.

But we think the enduring success of the event, which will be celebrating its 20th year in 2017, is best summed up by industry suppliers who have attended previously:

“I found this to be one of the best events I have attended in 25 years of employment within the security industry.”

CSC

“I attended the Total Security Summit for the first time this year. It was well planned, informative, and the ratio of suppliers to delegates was great unlike other events where there are hundreds of suppliers and little time to meet everyone.”

ABC Electrification

“A thoroughly professional and well organised event that was valuable to the business.”

HSS Hire

“A fantastic opportunity to meet like-minded delegates and security professionals.”

Compass Group (National Grid)

“TSS is an informative, structured event which enabled us to see the innovation of products and services available within our industry. Very good!”

Matalan

 

So there you have it. More bespoke than a supply chain industry conference and more focused than an expo, the Total Security Summit is the only event you need to attend in 2017.

The next Total Security Summit takes place on March 13th & 14th 2017 at the Radisson Blu London Stansted.

IN PICTURES: The Total Security Summit is the only security manager event you need

800 450 Jack Wynn

The UK’s security industry converged on Whittlebury Hall earlier this week for the Total Security Summit.

It was one of the most successful to date, with delegates and security suppliers locked in deep conversation throughout the face-to-face meetings and copious networking opportunities.

Put simply, if you’re looking for a security manager event, this was it (but don’t worry – there’s another one coming in March – see below!).

For the uninitiated, the Total Security Summit is a unique tailor-made event for security professionals that takes place twice a year.

Delegates are given a carefully planned two-day itinerary that ensures their time spent at the event is worthwhile – they meet, share and connect with businesses relevant to their current and forthcoming projects in matchmade face-to-face meetings.

And not forgetting the extensive seminar programme – delegates and suppliers alike also had the opportunity to learn and improve security best practice strategies from Smith Consultancy Int, Alcumus Group, Nedap Security Management, ISMI and Deutsche Post DHL Group.

And did we mention the evening gala dinner? That was tremendous fun – Luckily everyone appeared bright eyed and bushy tailed for Day 2.

Thanks to all of the delegates and suppliers that took part to make the event such a success.

Here are some Twitter highlights from the two days!

Attending the Total Security Summit? Here are our top tips for security industry networking!

800 450 Jack Wynn

If you’re coming to the next Total Security Summit (or if you’ve been to one before) you’ll know just how many opportunities there are to network with your industry peers.

The networking areas are where, as security suppliers or buyers, you can follow up on conversations you’ve had during the one-to-one meetings that form the core of the two days.

Or, you know, talk about the football.

Either way, business is more often than not about building relationships.

We create networking environments that are informal and free of any pressure – whether that’s during the plentiful coffee breaks, over the delicious lunches and gala dinner, or playing roulette as part of the evening entertainment.

To help you get the most out of these opportunities, we’ve pulled together a few top tips for becoming the consummate networker at security industry events:

Always be yourself: You’re among friends at the Total Security Summit, so there’s no need to feel nervous about walking into a big room of people. Our staff will be on hand to help with introductions and grease those social wheels (do come and say ‘hello’!), plus the evening entertainment lineup means fun and relaxation are the name of the game (did we mention the roulette?)

Have a think about what you want to achieve: Who’s in the room? Is there anyone you met earlier in the day that you’d like to follow up with? Whether you’re a supplier or a buyer, you’ve come to the Total Security Summit with some specific goals in mind – the networking periods are a chance to help solidify those new partnerships.

Be curious: The Total Security Summit seminars are a great place for developing your industry knowledge and learning new skills. And they always create points of discussion. So why not see what everyone else thought of the talks, or swap some ideas on the latest technological developments and trends in the security? And if you’re new to the industry, there will be seasoned veterans ready and willing to impart their wisdom!

Don’t forget your business cards! You didn’t think we could get through a whole article about networking without mentioning business cards, did you? It’s an old chestnut, but one worth re-roasting. This author has forgotten his cards more times than he cares to remember – it happens. Always keep a few spread between your wallet/purse, pockets and bag – then you’ll be able to produce one when you most need it. But don’t blanket bomb – just because you have 100 cards to give out, it doesn’t mean you have to!

Always follow up: You’ve given your cards out, but hopefully you’ve picked some up too! So make sure that when you get back to the office you log into LinkedIn or fire off a some emails to your new contacts while everything’s still fresh in the mind.

Follow the above tips and you won’t go far wrong. Just don’t spend too long in the bar at the end of Day One – you’ll need to be bright as a button for all the networking we have lined up on Day Two!

More bespoke than a security conference and more focused than a security expo, the Total Security Summit is the only security industry event you need to attend.

Total Security Summit: The essential event for security professionals

1024 619 Jack Wynn

The security industry is in the midst of a paradigm shift where technology has started to pave the way for the future.

With the large, ever-expanding pool of security devices and systems now available on the market comes a number of challenges.

Alongside the increased threat of terrorism, cyberattacks and more, now more than ever, the industry needs to come together to think differently to combat emerging threats and ensure total security protection.

With this in mind, we created the Total Security Summit, a unique tailor-made event for security professionals that takes place twice a year.

Forums vs Expos – how to maximise your precious time out of the office…

800 450 Jack Wynn

With a majority of ‘expert’ advice on Expos being somewhat outdated or, like with many businesses, asserting too much emphasis on easy routes rather than methods that actually work, it’s no wonder people get frustrated and disconcerted when they are looking to effectively network and source new connections without it lessening quality time spent in the office.

Amplified by the dominant presence of social media quick fixes such as: setting up a LinkedIn profile; increasing your Twitter presence; scheduling a large number of email marketing campaigns; and collecting as many business cards as possible at industry events – are key solution in helping you to be astute in intelligently selecting what methods best suit you and your way of working.

Expos can also have a somewhat ‘lazy’ association to it: people picture the huge halls and countless stands as a way of picking up leads and justifying their time out of the office, but realistically a large percentage of exhibitors won’t be of necessary relevance, or the person you need to speak to has decided not to attend at the last minute.

So set aside any previous experiences you may have with networking and Expos, and garner some quality connections by attending one of our Forum Events. Our formula ensures that buyers can increase their knowledge of how, why and where to invest without hanging around waiting for the wrong supplier; as well as ensuring that all suppliers are provided with qualified leads and valuable business is made as a result.

Industry Spotlight: Networking opportunities at the FM and TSS Meet Up…

800 450 Jack Wynn

This September, we invite you to join us for an evening of networking with a host of facilities management and security industry influencers and innovators; the perfect opportunity to catch up with your peers, meet new business contacts and network in an informal and relaxed setting.


In today’s uncertain times, we are all too aware how hectic both the facilities management and security industries are becoming, and with demanding hours and tough objectives to meet, it’s hard to not feel overwhelmed by the increasing industry developments. For us, it’s always heartening to organise meet up events by allowing industry professionals to share tips and advice for best practice; as well as promoting the array of benefits of working in the sectors.

Continuing our passion of bringing industry professionals together, the Facilities Management Forum and Total Security Summit are organising a number of networking events throughout the year. Following the success of the first FM Meet Up earlier this year, the next event will be taking place on the 21st September at the Grange St Paul’s Hotel.

Together with our partners ATEC Security, Flir Systems and Gallagher Group, we’re bringing together representatives from firms such as the BBC, Solid Management, Coach, SBEG and more, for an exclusive night of networking.  It’s a chance for senior figures from across the industries – and some of the most influential innovators  –  to get together to learn, share, network and engage in a relaxed environment over drinks and canapés.

If you would like more information on becoming a sponsor for the event, or attending the event, please contact Mick Bush on mick.bush@forumevents.co.uk or 01992 374090

Forum News: 5 successful negotiation tips to implement at industry events…

800 450 Jack Wynn

Making the most of any time spent out of the office, and ensuring the meetings you partake in are as effective as possible, involves the expert ability of negotiation, which can make the difference between triumph and disappointment with what you set out to achieve.

  1. Look, Listen & Learn: If you talk too much, you won’t learn anything. Be the investigator – ask lots of open ended questions. Allow the other party to talk; then all you have to do is sit back and take notes to help with your decision.
  1. Be assertive: Ask for exactly what you want. Differentiate being assertive and aggressive; it’s getting to the point more quickly and looking after your business needs. Challenging everything is fine too. We all know both parties need to negotiate to formulate a win/win situation; however there are scenarios when companies really are just looking for a higher ‘cut’ rather than a long term profitable partnership, so it’s best to challenge everything to ensure you are getting the very best deal.
  1. Preparation is king: Have you thought about everything you need before you enter the negotiation as well as what the other party may be looking for? You can’t possibly make accurate decisions without fully understanding both sides of the agenda.
  1. Convey optimism: Entering any negotiation is an exciting process, so it’s important to show that you’re excited and be positive about the transaction. People who are optimistic, usually achieve more by expecting more. Suppliers would ask for more than they expect to receive and buyers offer less than they are willing to give – that way everybody walks away happy with the end result.
  1. No need to rush: The best negotiators most likely own the distinctive patient gene. If you rush your meeting, planning or negotiation, this is when mistakes will be made. Be flexible with time and if any steps to the negotiation are hurried, concessions will be made and the deal left on the table.

 

To utilise these tips, contact the team to discuss your attendance at this year’s Total Security Summit on October 17 & 18.
