Wednesday 30th November - Home Retail Group, CMK, 19:15 - 21:30

Home Retail HQ in CMK is the venue for a personal safety event that has been successfully delivered to over 15,000 people from all over the city over the last few years.
The seminar is dedicated to learning some simple and practical skills to increase an individuals personal safety.
CPDT (Corporate Progressive Development Training) are providing a two hour event, which will tackle many of the concerns local people have regarding their personal safety.
Issues such as knife avoidance and being assaulted from behind will be dealt with amongst other things. The response from those that attended the last event was very positive.
“I was very impressed with the lack of “holding back” and that made the scenarios more realistic which in turn did not leave you thinking “could I do that?”. I have been in classes
(I have a couple of belts in tai kwon do) where instructors are a bit soft though knowledgeable but this did leave you feeling “would this work?” this class however took the practice to the next level. This is definitely a class I would recommend to any person in business as however much or little you got “stuck in” you benefited and there was no room for being self conscious”. said Liane for Argos.
The statistics surrounding violent assaults are quite staggering with 1 in 4 women suffering some form of abuse and 2 women a week losing their lives through a physical assault. Men are equally likely to become a victim with assaults against men showing an alarming spike in certain areas over the last few years.
This event was designed to provide people with some basic skills to significantly reduce the chance of them becoming a victim, said a CPDT representative.
The Home Retail Group is committed to providing their employees and the local community with services that increase their personal safety and confidence. The benefits of having a work force of confident, safe and productive individuals are clear to see on a daily basis.
