Holistic solutions to complex problems

Brent Van Haren, SecurAlarm

SecurAlarm President, Brent Van Haren, said, “We hear, and experience, that resources, especially people, are extremely limited today. We know threats and risks have not gone away; if anything, they are elevated with the increased strain on mental health. But it is hard to know what actions will actually lead to a safer environment. So, we are bringing together some incredible experts to share through a variety of approaches how organizations can achieve a more holistic impact.”

What to expect

Thought leaders and industry experts at this event will share lessons learned protecting organizations like the White House and Pfizer and how to apply them in healthcare settings to integrate safety, efficiency, and spatial design. Their integrated and comprehensive approach to planning that will help attendees guide discussions and encourage collaboration with their peers to deliver healthier spaces for their staff, visitors, and patients. 

“People can be turned off by security because it has this stigma that it kills efficiency and aesthetics,” said Van Haren. “But when security is an afterthought, it creates reactive decisions and siloed systems that can negatively affect brand and experience. The things that deliver a healthy space, one that is safe, efficient, and comforting, should be at the forefront of planning in a more deliberate, collaborative, and meaningful way.” 

Jason Russell, Secure Education Consultants

Keynote Speaker, panelist, and Founder/President of Secure Education Consultants, Jason Russell, will conduct a de-escalation training to teach effective techniques for high-stress situations.
