Leadership : The Battle Within

Brett Lovegrove is the former Head of Counter Terrorism for the City of London Police. His upcoming RMIA keynote tour will incorporate stories of the function of leadership in a crisis, and how its possible to respond to issues on the fly. As his tales from London, Mumbai and US Congress will ask, what do you do when there are no rules? And if there are rules, how best can you bend them to suit the situation?

Great leaders are not born, they evolve.  Good leaders become great leaders when they understand where their mental and physical reserves emanate from.  Their life experiences are critical in the development of who they are today, and how each twist and turn of their lives has contributed to how they respond in a real life crisis situation.  Knowing this ensures that all of us can personally sustain our ability to respond effectively to whatever current and future challenges we will inevitably have to face.  Brett will use his strategic ‘Gold Commander’ international experience to compare how case studies in global terrorist attacks are impacted by how we as risk and crises leaders develop’.

Brett will also discuss how the role of CRO can forge new directions in risk and the art of leading. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to learn from the world’s leading experts.
