Balanced Approach

Crowds are multi-dimensional and are studied by disciplines including psychology, mathematics, physics, biology, civil engineering and sociology. My approach takes the learnings from these elements to have a balanced approach to crowd safety.


Holistic crowd safety requires multi-layer connection between services, operations, internal and external stakeholders. This integration is crucial to successful delivery.

Understanding Stakeholders

My approach is uniquely placed with experience in both the local authority and organising committee. Understanding the challenges, perceptions, pressures and opportunities on both sides of the table enables us to overcome challenges efficiently.

I had the pleasure of working with Íse on quite a number of projects, here in the UK but also other regions around the world. We tend to reach out to Íse when we are looking for a fresh and different perspective. Without fail Íse is able to show a route that nobody in our team has thought of before. Coupled with her excellent precision and reliability Íse is the perfect lead for any project and ideal addition to any team.

But it is mainly her versatility that makes Íse apply her talents to any kind of project. From the academical topics we cover here at Manchester Metropolitan University, to practical solutions for any event. With the big picture in mind and never forgetting the detailed solution.We can highly recommend working with Íse. She delivers results that we haven’t found anywhere else.
