On Thursday 9 February, Mitie’s security management business will hold its first thought leadership event at the Institute of Directors in London.

Titled The Kurtzman Club – after Joel Allen Kurtzman, the founding Editor-in-Chief of Strategy + Business magazine, who first coined the term ‘thought-leader’ – the event brings together leaders and influencers from the security sector to look at the future of security and challenge the status quo, to steer and future-proof the industry.

One of the keynote speakers at the inaugural event includes Edwin Lustig, Managing Director of Robot Security Systems – an exciting company from the Netherlands that has invested significantly in developing a robotic for the private security sector.

Jason Towse, Managing Director of Mitie’s security management business and host of The Kurtzman Club, comments:

“I am really excited to be launching The Kurtzman Club. I am passionate about the sustainability of our sector and see an opportunity to bring experts and influencers together in a forward thinking forum to challenge, innovate and work together to shape the future of the security industry.”
