Successful Crisis Management Training at Kenyon UK
15 April 2014 | Kenyon International Emergency Services
During the week of 7 April, Kenyon hosted three separate ‘open’ training classes at its UK facility in Bracknell. Three of Kenyon’s most popular practical training titles were delivered to delegates from as far afield as the USA, Japan and North Africa. The week started with training for the deployment, operations and support of Go Teams. This was followed by a complementing class in setting up and managing a Family Assistance Centre. The concluding event was a two-day ‘key-skills’ class in developing, designing, delivering and debriefing Crisis Management Exercises.
A key benefit of centralized training in a Kenyon facility is the availability of many Kenyon staff who are able to contribute their time by supporting the primary instructors with additional learning points and unique experiences. Robert Jensen, Kenyon's CEO, joined several of the sessions and provided the delegates with many valuable practical applications of the trained skills. Robert commented later, “it is so good to see so many delegates in one place at the same time. I am pleased that we can give them a unique training experience”.
The trainers for the classes were: Di Pook, one of our most experienced and widely travelled trainers; Gavin Solomon, the full-time consultancy manager for Kenyon with recent incident deployment experience in Africa; and Jerry Allen, Vice President Commercial, who added his own blend of practical challenges to the Exercise class.
Kenyon will be announcing new venues for open training classes in North America and the Far East very soon. Meanwhile, if you are interested in any of Kenyon’s training classes please see our training catalog or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
