Personal Safety Training Sessions

In 2012 Colmore BID partnered with former Royal Marine Commando, Daniel Gibbin, to offer a series of personal safety training sessions, free of charge, to employees in the District.  Following their success, further sessions were arranged in 2013 and 2014.

The sessions provide an introduction to personal safety, including the law, crime prevention and how to manage conflict. The training focusses on verbal communication skills, including how to diffuse aggressive situations, as well as self defence actions.

Colmore Business District continues to be an extremely safe part of Birmingham City Centre, however, due to popular demand, we are running another set of sessions for 2017. The sessions will be held on:

  • 9 May 2017
  • 16 May 2017
  • 23 May 2017
  • 13 June 2017
  • 20 June 2017
  • 27 June 2017

The sessions are held between 5.30 pm – 7.15 pm.

To book a place, please email  Please note, these sessions are only available to business in the District.

This programme is part of Colmore BID’s key objective to secure improvements to actual and perceived safety across the District, addressing concerns about crime and becoming a victim of crime.
