A workshop to explore the link between personal resilience, organisational resilience and how to be proactive in avoiding operational risk. This session aims to put our managers in the mindset of looking ahead to evaluate workplace risk, enabling them to avoid operational barriers that may disadvantage our people and their wellbeing. As a manager/leader we have the responsibility to create a workplace that gives our people the best possible chance for operational success, but operational life often means we react to what is happening in the moment – sometimes it is possible to avoid disruption by pro-actively identifying risk and creating a plan to minimise disruption before it takes place.
This session is designed and delivered by Ian Ford, Development and Support Officer for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Local Resilience Forum (CPLRF), the statutory body responsible for emergency preparedness, resilience and response within Cambridgeshire. He has most recently been engaged in managing partners preparedness for EU Exit, response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, alongside many other major and critical incidents within the county.
Ian has 30 years previous policing experience, both in London and Cambridgeshire, where he attained specialist skills in operational and tactical management of Public Order / Public Safety events, Armed Policing and CBRNe incidents.
Ian is a nationally accredited incident de-briefer and delivers command and Joint Emergency Service Interoperability Programme (JESIP) training to local resilience forum partners. He is currently co-ordinating the CPLRF response to the ongoing national integrated review of security and resilience.
