James Rockley, Business Development Director at HABC, said, ‘Both public and private sector organisations are facing greater than ever scrutiny – from the media and from regulatory authorities – in the way they organise and manage live events. It is therefore vital that staff are fully trained and aware of how to respond appropriately and knowledgeably in any situation’.
