Commenting on the line up, Charlotte Wright, senior content manager for Protection & Management, said:

“A wealth of 18 months research with the security, fire, safety, facilities and service management communities has resulted in the most focused programme that the Protection & Management Series has ever seen. Stages this year will welcome a mix of inspirational stories from our headline speakers with practical and insightful sessions from top speakers and trainers. We can’t wait until June!”

The Inspirational Speaker Series will be hosted in the Keynote Theatre at ExCel London.

Colonel Tim Collins will be speaking 21 June, 11.30 – 12.30 

Colonel Tim Collins attracted attention on both sides of the Atlantic for his rousing speech to the troops before going into battle in Iraq. His autobiography, Rules of Engagement, subsequently went straight into the bestseller lists and he is now CEO of a security company.

Collins is a naturally inspiring speaker, combining extensive experience of active service with broad knowledge of military and political history. An authority on teamwork, leadership and motivation, his speeches show a clear parallel between military problem solving and the challenges faced by leaders in any walk of life.

Kate Adie will be speaking 22 June, 11.30 – 12.30

It used to be said that if you found yourself in the same place as Kate Adie, you should leave straight away. She became a household name as BBC chief news reporter, covering the Gulf War, the demise of the Soviet Union, the protests in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square and NATO’s campaign in Kosovo.

Aside from her autobiography, The Kindness of Strangers, Adie has published Corsets to Camouflage and Nobody’s Child. She has won the Royal Television Society Journalism Award and the Monte Carlo International Golden Nymph. Adie has also received BAFTA’s Richard Dimbleby Award.

James Cracknell will be speaking 23 June, 11.30 – 12.30

James Cracknell is one of Britain’s greatest ever oarsmen. After victory alongside Redgrave and Pinsent in the coxless four in Sydney, he went on to achieve another Olympic gold in Athens.

Cracknell will talk about his adventures, the build-up to both Olympics and how they were nowhere near as straightforward as the public seemed to think. He reveals the highs and lows of his training regime, the different characters that make a successful team and what drives him to seek out new challenges.
