OSPAs Thought Leadership Summit 2020 to be organised in association with NSI

The Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) is pleased to be working in association with the National Security Inspectorate (NSI) to deliver the third UK OSPAs Thought Leadership Summit on Wednesday 26 February 2020 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in central London.

The Thought Leadership Summit provides a unique platform for security providers, stakeholders and buyers to come together each year to discuss and debate key issues relative to the security sector.

“The full programme is yet to be announced, but promises to be lively, informative and thought-provoking” commented Professor Martin Gill CSyP FSyI, founder of the OSPAs. “We’re delighted to be working in association with the NSI to deliver an event that will allow key players to contribute to matters in a way that could influence and shape the industry going forward.”

Commenting on the partnership, NSI CEO Richard Jenkins said: “Leaders and senior management in forward thinking businesses have an opportunity at the OSPAs Thought Leadership Summit to debate specific topics and help shape the industry’s future together. The NSI sees continual improvement as a way of life for security providers. We welcome fresh perspectives that provoke constructive debate about how the industry should develop. Recognising new technology and shared standards can help propel the security sector and raise its profile with buyers, people joining the industry and, indeed, in communities at large. The soon-to-be-announced speaker programme addresses some of the key challenges the security sector faces today. The NSI is proud to be the sponsor of this, the third OSPAs Thought Leadership Summit.”

Doors will open to the event at midday for a networking buffet luncheon with a comprehensive exhibition of products and services on display, followed by the Summit Conference. The event is set to finish at around 4.30 pm and the OSPAs Awards Dinner will follow at 6.45 pm.
