An Olympic Year - Bill Fox looks back over 2012 and forward to opportunities in 2013

Without doubt the highlight of 2012 for us was 20,000 military and security personnel completing Maybo training for the Olympics which was delivered on time and on budget through our terrific training partners.

This contract has also enabled us to invest heavily in fabulous new training resources being launched in 2013.

There is no time for complacency. We specialise in a complex field where both staff and the people they come into contact with can be extremely vulnerable. Training alone will not resolve this, we need to work with organisations to help them ensure policy and training translates into working practices. 

Staff selection and supervision are critical and generally beyond our control but Maybo certified trainers have a real opportunity to get into the workplace and help employers rehearse responses, problem solve and refresh and maintain staff skills.

Although our focus is on workplaces, Maybo is also passionate about making a wider contribution to safety within communities which is why we sponsor CitySafe, a great charity that is making a real sustainable difference for young people. 

I wish you all the very best for 2013 and thank you for your passion and support.
