BSIA organises networking event for information destruction companies

The British Security Industry Association is holding a seminar and networking event which aims to bring together key players from across the information destruction sector, among them suppliers and stakeholders.

Taking place at the Hilton Garden Inn in Birmingham’s Brindleyplace, the event is planned for Thursday 4 December 2014 and will consist of a varied programme including educational and motivational presentations, networking opportunities and a charity auction.

The programme will encompass:
• Presentations from headline sponsors focusing on technological innovations (Global Recycling and Vecoplan), tax, accounting and outsourcing (Cobia) and insurance (Waste Insure) within the information destruction sector
• A Q&A session with a panel of up to five representatives from within the sector to facilitate an engaging discussion of some of the key issues facing the industry
• A presentation from Steve Eckersley (head of enforcement at the Information Commissioner’s Office) on the short-to-medium term outlook in terms of the key issues to be addressed
• A one-hour special keynote address by Olympic athlete and former javelin world record holder Steve Backley in which he’ll translate his training and experience in the world of sport into the business arena

Following the formal presentations there will be an informal drinks reception, dinner and evening entertainment, culminating with an auction of donated prizes in aid of Together for Short Lives, a leading UK charity for children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions.

With costs remarkably low considering what is on offer on the day, the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) will be asking all companies attending to donate a prize suitable for the raffle or auction.

Sharing Best Practice and professionalism

Adam Chandler, chairman of the BSIA’s Information Destruction Section, commented: “As well as the sheer entertainment value on offer, this event is also a fantastic networking opportunity and the only UK gathering of its kind designed specifically for the information destruction sector. All industry practitioners are welcome. I would encourage all information destruction companies to come along and share Best Practice ideas and techniques as well as celebrate the capability and professionalism that exists within our sector.”
