Former chief of Defence Staff to headline at Intersec

Sir Nick CarterIntersec, the world-leading emergency services, security, and safety event on December 13, announced that Britain’s former chief of defence staff, Sir Nick Carter will share insights from his 44-year military career at the event

In his previous role, Carter was the professional head of the British Armed Forces and the most senior uniformed military adviser to the Secretary of State for Defence and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. 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, Carter will be speaking at Intersec which runs from 16-18 January 2022 at Dubai World Trade Centre.

Having served in the Balkans, Carter went on tours to Iraq as a brigade commander in 2003/4 and repeated tours to Afghanistan between 2002 and 2013. He was responsible, on his first tour, for the initial design of Provincial Reconstruction Teams and the Afghan National Army. He commanded 55,000 NATO troops in Regional Command South during the Afghan ‘surge’ and in his last tour led the transition process with the now former President Ghani as the NATO mission’s Deputy Commander.

Alex Nicholl, Messe Frankfurt Middle East’s head of Intersec, said, “We are absolutely delighted to have Sir Nick Carter at Intersec 2022. Without question he brings a unique set of insights, not just from a security perspective but in terms of multilateral political relations, defence strategy and the challenges of leading through some of the most extraordinary geopolitical moments in recent history.”

The show will see the best minds in the industry participate in a three-day conference, with six industry pillars: Global Security Leaders’ Summit, Protecting Future Connected Cities & Citizens Conference, Safeguarding Critical Infrastructure Conference, Agile First Responders Conference, Cyber Lab and with a dedicated KSA Focus Day.
