2017 Stakeholder Conference - Partnership Working

23 January 2017

On Tuesday 14 March 2017, we will be holding their 2017 Stakeholder Conference at the Hallam Conference Centre, in London.

The focus is on partnership working. Our Chair, Elizabeth France and our CEO Alan Clamp will set out the Authority’s key priorities for the coming year during the event.

Our Chief Executive, Alan Clamp said:

"The theme for the day is working in partnership to protect the public. In addition to presentations, we will also be running workshops throughout the day. These are important because the feedback we get will inform the future of regulation and the work we do.
We know that networking is important to the industry so we have made extra time for everyone to meet each other. We have also reduced the delegate fee this year to try make it easier for members of the industry to come and share their views with us. Ultimately, this is a chance for the SIA and the industry to come together to discuss how we can do things better together".

During the conference, we will hold three discussion forums and workshops. They will look at the following topics:

Taking Responsibility for Standards

  • Who has responsibility for standards?
  • How do high standards give businesses competitive advantage?

Influencing Buyer Behaviour

  • How can we encourage buyers' recognition of high quality?
  • What is the role of the SIA?
  • What should the private security industry do?

Developing Regulation in Partnership

  • How can regulation be improved to help good businesses
  • What should the SIA focus on?
