PerpetuityARC Training, which is part of the Linx International Group of companies, recently delivered a risk and crisis management workshop for Lafarge Egypt (part of the LafargeHolcim Group) in Cairo. The training provided senior managers from across the organisation with the knowledge and skills needed to manage resources during a crisis and operate within the organisation’s crisis management and compliance framework.
The intensive programme was built collaboratively between PerpetuityARC Training and Lafarge Egypt and specifically tailored to its operating environment in the construction materials industry. In a series of practical and theoretical exercises, Linx International Group director Angus Darroch-Warren CSyP assessed and enhanced the ability and confidence of participants to apply their new skills to manage complex and evolving crisis scenarios, each requiring close collaboration between team members in order to achieve a successful resolution.
Magdy Khorshid, security director at Lafarge, stated: “The course was amazing, very practical and interesting to all and I received much positive feedback from all learners.”
Darroch-Warren responded: “The Lafarge teams engaged fully with the workshop scenarios. It was great to see them solving problems in a pressured, but safe environment that allowed them to think through issues and respond using identified resources and procedures.”
The workshop is the latest collaboration in a five-year relationship between Lafarge Egypt and PerpetuityARC Training. During this time, the latter has delivered its security and risk-related courses to employees and stakeholders in Egpyt and the UK.
