Event Overview

Former New Scotland Yard Detective Sergeant Miles Manning brings you a unique insight into decision-making in a crisis scenario. With over thirty years’ experience of Policing within The Metropolitan Police, Miles speaks about the lessons he learned during multiple deployments both within the UK and internationally.

Miles will be speaking about his early days as a Police Constable in the West End of London and how being too close to an IRA bomb changed his life. An expert in dealing with the families of Murder victims, Miles utilised this experience when deployed to the Tsunami in 2004 and became one of a small cadre of specialist officers dealing with mass casualty events overseas on behalf of the British Government. With deployments to the Terror attacks in Tunisia, France, Belgium and the UK, Miles will discuss the lessons he learned around decision making under pressure, as well as providing an awareness of and the impact of operating in mass casualty environments on decision making and mental health.
