Deltar Training Solutions

Deltar-TS is a full service training and risk management consultancy, advising and preparing our clients in areas involving high levels of complexity, organisational integration and potential catastrophic risk / loss.

Built on the decades of experience across both its executive team and its consultants and practitioners, Deltar-TS works with clients to understand the complex nature of the world that they are operating in, to develop effective corporate strategies to mitigate and manage those risks, and to develop risk management capabilities across the organisation that will allow them to respond in the most appropriate and effective manner in the event that a crisis event is triggered.

Our work is founded on a deep understanding of cutting-edge academic research, global best practices, case studies and real-world experience in developing and managing risk and resilience in some of the world’s major corporations and NGO’s, as well as global sporting and other significant and hyper-complex events.

In the modern world, security and risk managers can no longer claim that they are in control of factors such as terrorism, climate change, social and political instability, natural disasters, technological breakdown, supply chain failures or any of the other myriad threats that could cause disruption, and potentially catastrophic destruction to their operations.

Deltar-TS can be your guide in evaluating and providing form, structure and strategic frameworks in the world of otherwise seeming chaos associated with modern crises and disaster events, and can help you confidently plan and prepare for any eventuality.
