Helping You Stay Safe


Tony Willis & Be Aware Take Care

The Tried & Tested 3 Step System for Personal Safety

Workshops for organisations that want to provide their people with a simple framework to allow them to identify and manage personal risk.

Are you an HR or Facilities Director and feel concerned that with so many different responsibilities you do not currently have anything in place to ensure the personal safety of your staff?

Do you worry about your duty or care to your people or simply want to make sure they know how to identify and manage personal risks that could affect them, their families and ultimately the organisation.

Be proactive and ensure your people receive training on how to identify and manage risks to their personal safety and security. Unfortunately, when a robbery, mugging, terrorist incident, physical or sexual assault occur it is not only a personal tragedy but often presents as an issue for HR and the organisation to manage.

Incidents can occur when and where they are least expected and may affect the individual concerned, their family, department and sometimes the effectiveness or reputation of the organisation.

Training is tailored specifically to that particular audience at that time. Although the fundamental principles and foundation remain the same no two courses are likely to be the same as the attendees will be at varying levels of seniority, experience different risk factors and undertake different tasks throughout their day. With that being understood Tony always likes to gain an understanding of both the organisation and the attendees for each element of the training he provides.

Why This Came About


When Tony Willis MSc MBA FCMI  was a Director working in the City of London and travelling extensively on business for many years, he noticed that the majority of people he met had little or no idea on how to ensure their personal safety, security of sensitive documents or confidential items. That coupled with many organisations not understanding or implementing simple fraud & counter terrorism procedures was the reason he started consulting and running workshops.

Whether it’s handling the daily commute, navigating foreign cities, understanding terrorist activity or simply being aware of potential threats in airports and hotels the training provided along with the tried and tested techniques and tips will help you and your team stay safe when going about your work.

What clients said following their training

“Recently, Tony Willis was invited to give a conference in our organisation. He presented the concept Be aware – stay safe developed by himself. We discovered a very interesting approach of self-protection and we were amazed by all the good tips and tricks he provided us with. Very useful for all those who are travelling from time to time, whether for professional or personal reasons.”

Birgit Ben Yedder, Admin Asst, The European Commission, Luxembourg

“Business travelling is getting more and more uncomfortable with increased pressures on time and reduced budgets, especially in the big cities like Berlin, London and Paris.  Rushing from one meeting to the next often under significant stress business travellers are especially vulnerable. Advice on how to avoid difficult situations and maintain personal safety in these situations is absolutely essential for today’s business community…”
