BMF Members’ Day to welcome real life 007

Published:  27 February, 2018

Former MI6 officer, Julian Fisher, will be speaking at the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) Members’ Day in September.

Now acting as a consultant on espionage matters, Julian Fisher was an operational officer in the Secret Intelligence Service (commonly known as MI6) before moving into the private security and intelligence sector as Head of Africa for Aegis Defence Services.

As a speaker, Julian brings his unique combination of operational experience, training capability, geographical expertise and creativity to bear advising businesses on the lessons they can learn from intelligence officers’ use of interpersonal skills and human psychology.

BMF CEO, John Newcomb said: “Our conference theme this year is “The Future Belongs to the Bold”, which makes a presentation from a former MI6 officer especially appropriate. The business of spying may seem a world away from the building materials supply industry, but Julian is set to show us all how we can draw on espionage skills to develop our business.”

Last year, Julian was one of the lead trainers/assessors on the Channel 4 series, Spies, which subjected fifteen ordinary men and women to tests based on the training for new entrants to the British Intelligence Services, to find out if they had what it takes to make it.

BMF Members’ Day 2018 will be held for the first time at St George’s Park, Burton on Trent – the home of England’s 28 national football teams.
