Business Travel & NGOs
Do your Employees Travel Abroad on Business?
Have you ensured their safety whilst travelling overseas?
NEW Online and Remote Business Travel Safety Awareness Training
We are now offering half-day Business Traveller courses online via Skype, Zoom, Teams or Webinar, helping to prepare for when travel restrictions are lifted. Flexible in our approach to training, the course can be broken down into short sessions or on a one to one basis. This approach gives companies the flexibilty to continue their travel safety training remotely.
The half day training course is a maximum of three hours and we suggest a two hour initial session followed by an additional hour. As always, we will adjust the timings and content depending on your specific needs. See our latest news article providing more details of our remote training

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.
