Our expert speakers include a keynote from Peter Spindler, former Commander at Metropolitan Police and Head of Op. Yewtree, now Independent Safeguarding Panel Chair for Westminster Abbey and St Paul’s Cathedral. Peter will reflect on developments in the ever evolving world of safeguarding and how the effective management of information is essential to creating safer organisations.

We’re also thrilled to have the specialist legal team at Farrer & Co join us. Owen O’Rorke, Senior Associate and rights specialists with expertise in data protection and intellectual property, will discuss GDPR and its implications upon effective safeguarding and how technology can assist in compliance. While Adele Eastman, Senior Associate from the firm’s Safeguarding Unit will address  ‘low-level concern reporting’ drawing upon Farrer & Co’s new LLCs guidance. Adele specialises in safeguarding and child protection law, advising and training charities, sports organisations and governing bodies and schools.

Delegates will also hear from Clue users.  We will be asking Kath Bennett, Safeguarding Case Manager, England Rugby and Denise Eastwood, Child Protection Manager, British Council about their experiences. Both Kath and Denise have had to put in place safeguarding arrangements in their respective organisations and then make sure they are working effectively. We will be asking Kath and Denise about their experience, what they have learned and even perhaps what they might do differently if they were starting out again. There will be a particular focus on how technology can help.

Delegates will have the opportunity to put their questions to the speakers as part of a panel session, also involving Clue’s Managing Director, Clare Elford, and share their own learnings in a brief workshop: Enabling Safer Organisations Through Technology. Finally, the seminar will be summarised by Clare Elford on how technology and interoperability is supporting the crucial role of safeguarding.

There will be some extremely insightful learnings, key takeaways and networking, with Chatham House Rules applied. To register for Clue’s seminar please contact us.  The event starts at 9am for a 9.30 start finishing with lunch and networking at 1.15pm.
