Location: Holloway, London, UK
Booking Deadline: -

A staff member has just been abducted, what is the first thing you do?
You have just been abducted, what is the first thing you do?

Part one of the People In Aid Staff Care double-workshop, this Kidnap and Ransom workshop will explore answers to the above, both from the perspective of aid workers as well advice on what HR and management staff should do in the immediate aftermath of an incident and from then on.

Supported by specialist insurance company VanBreda International and leading security experts Drum Cussac, this event offers practical examples of security issues and how they have been dealt with effectively by others, as well as touching on issues like family liaison, preparing staff and colleagues and more.

As well as the external management issues, Camilla Carr and Jon James, victims of kidnap themselves, will be offering an illustrated account of their time in captivity, discussing the mental, emotional and physical effects of their incident. Followed by an experiential workshop exploring coping strategies. Previous participants at workshops facilitated by Camilla and Jon have complimented their presentation of ‘coping skills’ and the simple way in which their information is presented, ensuring information and advice can be shared with colleagues easily.

Facilitators:

Jon James and Camilla Carr.

In April 1997 Jon James and Camilla Carr drove to Chechnya to help set up a centre for war- traumatised children in the capital Grozny. Most Western aid workers had pulled out of the region the previous year due to the massacre of six Red Cross workers six months prior to the ceasefire in August 1996.

On July 2nd they were kidnapped at gunpoint from the house they were staying in inspite of having armed security protection. They were held for over 14 months in various locations including an underground concrete room, cellars and a sauna, with no natural light or fresh air and only able to talk in whispers.

They experienced everything from threat of execution, rape and mental torture to moments of compassion and kindness. They survived by creating a dialogue with their captors and using tools such as Tai Chi, Yoga, meditation and humour. Through the nightmare months, living in a pressure cooker of constant fear and continual disappointments when they were told they were going to be released, they grew stronger as a partnership.

The pair were released on 20th September 1998 following the intervention of Russian businessman Boris Berezovsky. He told Camilla and Jon that no ransom was paid, they just used a ‘series of argument and methodology’ although in 2011 Roman Abramovich said he had paid their ransom.

Camilla and Jon tell the story of how they survived in their book ‘The Sky is Always There’. They used the writing of the book as part of their healing process.

Jon - ‘We used softness to overcome hardness’

Camilla - ‘The captors could never touch my essence, my body is only part of who I am. My spirit will always be free.’

Leadership

What is expected of HR professionals? This conference will be exploring leadership qualities in HR professionals, facing challenges. We all work in a challenging climate and, in many cases, difficult environments.

What do directors expect from HR staff in these situations, and how can we collectively improve?

The conference programme is coming together nicely: we shall start after lunch on Day 1 with three keynote addresses from senior NGO speakers, followed by some group work exploring the key humanitarian challenges we as HR staff are currently facing. Day 2 will start with case studies from participating agencies, after which we move on to a marketplace of workshops, skills sessions and discussions on topics such as humanitarian leadership, recruiting for resilience, coaching, and managing risk. On Day 3, we shall look to the future with presentations and group work. Throughout, there will be time for networking and socialising.
 
Speakers so far confirmed include Chris Bain, Director of CAFOD; Caroline Welch-Ballentine, HR Director of the International Committee of the Red Cross; Paul Knox-Clarke, Head of Research and Communications at ALNAP; Catherine Russ, Head of Learning and Professional Development, Humanitarian and Leadership Academy; Kate Nowlan, Chief Executive of CiC; Yamina Himeur, Regional HR Adviser from Oxfam GB, and Randolph Kent, Director of the Humanitarian Futures Programme. More speakers will be announced later in the spring.

So, join us now for HHR Europe 2013. You will leave better informed, energised and empowered to tackle your HR challenges head on.

The conference will be convened and facilitated by Stephen Blakemore, an experienced independent trainer and consultant in the non-profit sector, who also facilitated our 2011 & 2012 HHR Europe conferences.

The conference will take place within an easy connection from both Frankfurt International Airport and Frankfurt-am-Main central railway station. The schedule will allow for arrival in the morning of Wednesday 5 June (programme start: 2pm) and departure after lunch on Friday 7 June (programme finish: 1pm).

The conference fee GBP 525 includes accommodation on 5 and 6 June and full board. Further stay at the conference venue is available at the participants' own cost; please enquire from katja@peopleinaid.org. Non-residential places are also available.

People In Aid Leadership workshop: Collaborative Leadership for Social Impact

Event Date: 07/02/2013 11am - 5pm
Duration: 1 day
Location: Brussels, Belgium
Booking Deadline: -
Price: 45 EUR for members, 90 EUR for non-members

Following on from the successful event of the same name held in London in October, People In Aid and the Center for Creative Leadership are working together again as we look at the organisational leadership journey.

A journey that :

  • Emphasises leadership practice - not theory
  • Uses contemporary cases from around the globe
  • Shows how leadership works at all levels in any organization
  • Features guest faculty who are delivering on-site leadership programs in Africa, Asia and the Americas
     

Objectives

The workshop aims to give participants an understanding of how the Collaborative Leadership model can:

  • Enhance and reinforce capacity building, through greater collaboration inside and outside your workplace
  • Motivate staff at all levels and across organisational boundaries
  • Provide organizations with new directions and insights to bolster their leadership abilities and practice effective, lasting Collaborative Leadership.

Who Should Attend?

This is not a workshop for only the human resource professional. Managers and specialists can also learn a great deal about how to get the very best out of their people and (most important) how to develop deep collaboration across organisational boundaries. This is the opportunity to discover the very latest thinking - and doing – about organizational leadership.

The Guest Faculty

The guest faculty for October’s workshop brings together two different Center for Creative Leadership professionals. Lyndon Rego has over a decade of experience delivering leadership programs around the globe. He brings insight and experience to this event, especially in his ability to explain the tools and techniques of Collaborative Leadership. Lyndon’s audiences have ranged from the most senior corporate leaders in the Americas, to rural communities in Africa and Asia – his talent lies in the ability to work at both ends of the spectrum.

Aaron White joined the Center for Creative Leadership in 2011 building on a history of international development. Now the Deputy Regional Director, Africa, Aaron has worked in East Africa since 2005. Since joining CCL he has concentrated much of his time bringing leadership development to small communities. His experiences in Tanzania, Rwanda, Somalia and Ethiopia will form a key part of the case study section of the workshop.

Venue

The event will be held at the CCL Europe campus. Further directions can be found here.
