Standardisation can lead to predictability and complacency

For all companies; NGOs, charities, not-for-profit organisations and those providing humanitarian aid, the ability to either avoid a crisis situation or be able to react to unfolding events can be of vital importance. We provide assistance and training in a bespoke manner.
We assist in the production of crisis management plans, provide help with training staff and finally, test plans and procedures via test exercises. Crisis management is not a ‘black art’; to be effective, we strongly believe that plans need to be simple and generic so that they can be adapted to the specific situation.
Objective Travel Safety will identify and minimise risks that may affect your business and employees. We have extensive experience of carrying out security reviews for NGOs, corporations and high networth individuals working and living abroad. Our consultants are ex-military officers, including former Intelligence and Special Forces officers, with extensive experience in the commercial sector.

'The training session, led by Charlie was well presented and clearly delivered, full of practical tips, and didn’t pull the punches on the ‘worst case’ scenarios, while remaining very grounded. I would highly recommend this as a refresher for seasoned travellers or as an introduction to travel safety for novices.'
