BSIA confirms Chris Moon as keynote speaker for Annual Luncheon

21 Apr 2016

The BSIA has confirmed inspirational speaker and former British Army Officer, Chris Moon, as the keynote speaker at its flagship Annual Luncheon, which takes place on Tuesday 12th July 2016 at the London Hilton on Park Lane.

Chris Moon is a former British Army Officer with three year’s operational experience. He left to work for a charity clearing landmines in Asia and Africa and survived being taken prisoner in Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge. He successfully negotiated his own release and that of two colleagues from threatened execution.

In 1995, he was blown up in a supposedly safe area of a minefield in remote East Africa, losing an arm and a leg. He initially survived this ordeal by treating himself, before arriving in South Africa fourteen hours later to receive treatment. Within a year of leaving hospital, Chris ran the London marathon and raised significant sums of money to help disabled people in the developing world.

Chris became the world’s first amputee ultra-distance runner and completed the gruelling Marathon Des Sables in 1997. Since then, he’s run the world’s toughest ultra-marathons including the 135 mile Badwater Death Valley ultra and the 95 mile West Highland Way Race. As a keynote speaker, Chris delivers humour, passion and inspiration, covering a wide range of topics from motivation to strategic leadership.

Chris will appear at the Association’s Annual Luncheon on 12th July, where he will present the BSIA’s annual Security Personnel Awards, Apprentice Installer and SaferCash CVIT Special Awards. The event is an ideal opportunity for anyone involved in the private security industry to come together and celebrate the industry’s achievements of the past year, while networking with industry peers and VIP Government and Police representatives.

The event also features a formal address by incoming Association Chairman, Phil Wright, who will present his personally-selected Chairman’s Awards to those who have made significant or lifelong contributions to the security industry.

Tickets to the Annual Luncheon are available at a cost of £135 + VAT per person for BSIA members or £150 + VAT per person for non-BSIA members. Book your ticket online by clicking here or by contacting the events team on 0203 585 1447 or emailing events@bsia.co.uk
