Join us to learn how to remain focussed in a crisis and how best to manage major challenges.

The business community is invited to hear from the former Chief Constable of Durham, Mike Barton and the current Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police, Stephen Watson QPM on how to best manage business changes and challenges.

Both Mike and Stephen have decades of experience in managing difficult scenarios and have both been recognised for their abilities. Stephen was a senior member of the 2012 Olympic Command Team and was awarded the Commissioner’s Commendation in recognition of his role, which involved the planning and delivery of all territorial policing acrross London throughout the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Mike has received the Tilley Lifetime Achievement Award in Problem Solving and he was also recognised for excellence in Evidence Based Policing with the award of the Peel Medal by Cambridge University. In 2017 he was made communicator of the year in the North East.
