NSI and IFSEC International to host exclusive talks for NSI approved companies

IFSEC

The National Security Inspectorate (NSI), the UK’s UKAS accredited certification body for the security and fire safety sectors and IFSEC International, are combining on 17 May to offer NSI approved companies exclusive ‘Boardroom Talks’ at IFSEC International taking place at ExCeL, London.

The ‘Boardroom Talks’ agenda has been curated specifically for senior leaders of NSI approved companies, covering two specific topical business issues:

Changes in procurement rules, outsourcing services and social value

Jo Kenny, Commercial Lead at the Crown Commercial Service.

The Crown Commercial Service, whose purpose is to help the UK public sector get better value for money from its procurement of goods and services, will outline the social value themes planned for the new framework for security physical, technical and support services and provide an overview of the transformation of public procurement.

Meet the sustainability challenge: How to embed social value and net zero

Sunil Shah, Founder of Acclaro Advisory

The Security Systems sector has the potential to positively impact the environment and society in many ways, but there is much to achieve across the sector to embed the principles of sustainability. Shah will discuss ways to influence and manage sustainability in a number of areas across a business.

The hour-long ‘Boardroom Talks’ will start at 11.30am in room South Gallery S15 followed by refreshments and lunch. As spaces are limited, NSI approved companies wishing to attend are being asked to register in advance via: marketing@nsi.org.uk and will be confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Richard Jenkins, NSI Chief Executive said: “We have supported IFSEC International for over 40 years and are delighted to see it return as an in-person event and resume its well-respected standing within the industry. We are delighted to see the event back at full strength offering visitors compelling reasons to attend and are very much looking forward to welcoming NSI approved companies to our stand and the ‘Boardroom Talks’ on 17 May, a new exclusive business opportunity for leaders within the NSI approved community.”

Chris Edwards, Group Director for IFSEC International and Co-Located Events commented: “We’re delighted to be working with NSI again as we return to our first face to face event in nearly three years. Proving your sustainability and social responsibility credentials is going to become something that will separate successful businesses from those that become less and less relevant in the coming years so we salute NSI for their choice in topics here and look forward to welcoming their approved companies right across the show.”

Visitors attending IFSEC International are invited to a reunion drinks party taking place at Indigo, The 02, at 18:30 on 17 May 2022, where they can enjoy two complimentary drinks on entry. Access is via the Emirates Air Line cable car.
