Dame Stella Rimington, the first female director general of MI5, has been announced as a keynote speaker at ibtm world 2017.

Rimington will be one of two high profile keynote speakers at the 30th ibtm world event, taking place in Barcelona on 28-30 November. Drawing on her 27 years’ experience in the security service, Dame Stella will discuss her work in counter-subversion, counter-espionage and counter-terrorism, as well as the industry’s outlook on safety and security.

Kerry Prince, portfolio director at ibtm events, said: “We’re thrilled to announce Dame Stella Rimington as one of two headliners for our market-leading knowledge programme.

“Given the current climate, safety and security is a topic being discussed often, and we know from our customer research that it is a subject about which there is huge appetite from our attendees to learn more. We’re delighted to be fulfilling that appetite by having someone of Dame Stella’s calibre providing what will be some truly invaluable insights and learnings that our customers can take away and apply in their own businesses.”

The full knowledge programme during the three day-long event covers seven topical content themes, including: industry trends; engagement and experiences; safety, security and risk management; innovation, disruption and technology; sustainability and CSR; professional and staff development; and business development and strategy.

Dame Stella’s session will be taking place on Wednesday 29 November at 9am.
