He joined the Army in 1977 and during his career, he served in Germany during the Cold War, in Northern Ireland during the Troubles, in Cyprus with the UN and in command of a battalion on operations in Bosnia and Kosovo.

Speaking publicly for the first time since retiring from the military, Sir Nick will be speaking at Intersec which runs from 16-18 January 2022 at Dubai World Trade Centre.

Commenting on his participation, Sir Nick said, “It is a pleasure to be invited to speak at Intersec, particularly during a time where our national interests and multilateral relations are challenged by an increasingly complex geopolitical landscape. Having served in some of the region’s most challenging environments, I look forward to sharing valuable insights and experiences at what promises to be a fascinating forum at Intersec 2022.”

Having served in the Balkans, Sir Nick went on tours to Iraq as a brigade commander in 2003/4 and repeated tours to Afghanistan between 2002 and 2013.

With their seamlessly stitched images, multisensor cameras also eliminate blind spots. They are well suited for railway stations, metro stations, and airports and for squares, stadiums, campuses, and parking lots. They’re also ideal for perimeter surveillance around critical infrastructure, public or government buildings, banks, and healthcare centres.
  • A smarter approach to traffic incidents and offenses
    Combining high-quality images with automated edge-based video analytics allows the detection, verification, and response to incidents quickly and efficiently. When combined with intelligent automatic incident detection software, the traffic cameras reliably spot actionable incidents with significantly fewer false alarms.
  • Audio for security
    Axis network audio systems ensure that important communication takes place at the right time, in the right place, and with the sound quality needed to keep citizens safe and secure.
