OSPAs Thought Leadership Summit

The fourth OSPAs Thought Leadership Summit, organised with the National Security Inspectorate (NSI), is due to run on Thursday, February 24 at the Royal Lancaster London.

Already established in the UK private security calendar as an opportunity to confront issues faced by the security industry, 2022 will be no exception, say organisers; the event aims to address hot topics, to be lively and thought provoking – providing an engaging platform to address and challenge many issues. Hence the Summit will examine arguably the most significant likely change – the Protect Duty and its implications for the security sector.

Michelle Russell, Chief Executive of the Security Industry Authority (SIA) will talk about what is realistic to expect from the regulator; and Paul Evans, CEO of Carlisle Support Services and Jason Towse, MD Soft Services at Mitie will discuss with the perspective of security suppliers.

The full programme will be released shortly but the organisers add, the speaker line-up and past events – the last in-person Summit was in 2020 on the eve of the first covid lockdown – promise high-profile influential thought leaders from the public and private sectors; as anyone who has followed the OSPAs webinars since March 2020 will know.

Places at the Summit are limited. Book your Summit Delegate place for £45 plus VAT including lunch, entrance to the exhibition, summit, and afternoon refreshments at:

Exhibition space is also available to those wishing to promote their products and services. The Summit will end around 5pm, giving time for awards finalists and others to change into more formal evening wear for the OSPAs Awards Dinner, sponsored by TEAM Software, that will follow from 6.45pm at the same venue.
