End of Unit 2 MSc

Unit 2 – focussing on event modelling, crowd safety, risk analysis and different types of environments (transport, streets, CBD’s) now complete and all the lectures delivered.

A lot of hard work from the students at MMU who are now busy writing their end of term papers.


Unit 2 – Week 9

Wow. It’s week 9 of the second Unit of the MSc course (Crowd Safety and Risk Analysis).

Amazing time in Dubai

Just back from Dubai, great delegates, some excellent work and a lot of useful client materials and future opportunities. I ran three x 3-day courses “Introduction to Crowd Safety and Risk Analysis” for 100 delegates on the client site.

I ran three x 3-day courses “Introduction to Crowd Safety and Risk Analysis” for 100+ delegates on the clients site.

Already making plans for a return visit and future work in the UAE. Very exciting times ahead.

2 more courses in Dubai

Just heading to Dubai to run two more courses on “Introduction to Crowd Safety and Risk Analysis”. Another exciting 10 days teaching 60+ delegates on the principles and applications of crowd dynamics and crowd safety in the built and complex environment.

Next MSc intake is Sept 2016 – email me if you are interested in the course.
