This FREE-to-attend seminar is brought to you by the VisitScotland Events Directorate and EventScotland in partnership with Edinburgh Napier University.
This seminar will share best practice in preparing a safe event. Professor Chris Kemp, Mind over Matter Consultancy and Visiting Professor at Napier University, will share some of the latest thinking in counter terrorism planning for events and crowd movement dynamics.
