With emergency and crisis management experience in national and international emergencies and terrorist attacks, Roger has used his knowledge to design and deliver training to clients across the globe.

Roger retired from the Metropolitan Police Service after a career of over 34-years and his background has seen him play a pivotal role in operational command in numerous major events across London. His emergency and crisis management credentials are just as remarkable. Some of these incidents include the Selby Rail Crash, the 9/11 Terrorist Attack and the managed tactical response to the London Bombings of ‘7/7’.

Roger had a key role in partnership preparedness as part the London Resilience Forum for over 10 years and his professional and personal commitment was recognised by Her Majesty in 2007 when he was awarded the Queens Police Medal for distinguished service.

He is now using the knowledge, training and experience gained during this period to help others through providing training, advice and mentoring and has designed and successfully delivered leadership, incident management training and exercises to a variety of audiences in the UK and abroad.

Roger is an Editorial Panel member and occasional writer for Crisis Response Journal.

He enjoys a range of activities and as well as being a qualified yacht skipper, you can find him walking and cycling.
