Event Management, Planning and Safety

Shield Associates are skilled and experienced event planners and managers. We are able to support those holding events, especially in public places, to ensure effective event safety strategies are put in place, comprehensive communication, command and control is established and a safe event achieved.

We have many years of experience and have delivered a number of high profile events that include London Olympics 2012, Royal weddings, large sporting events, marches and ceremonial events.

Disciplines offered

We have specific experience in delivering public events in a customer facing environment; and have designed a bespoke course for Crystal Palace F.C. to enable them to deliver customer awareness training across their 700 full-time and temporary workforce. We helped the club bring about an unprecedented improvement in customer experience, leading to them receiving an award from the Premier League’s ‘Visit Football Programme’ in 2015.

To achieve a successful event we will work with the event organiser to formulate a plan, conduct risk assessments and introduce policies to support deployment of your team. We will meet with your local SAG (Safety advisory group) and supply experienced SIA event security personnel along with our trained event support staff.

In supporting your event we will establish an effective command and control structure on the day and liaise with Emergency services, Local authority and other key stakeholders.
