As the need for higher levels of security and crisis management for INGOs has increased, so has the need for training and consultancy on that front. Over the last decades, (I)NGO security has become a serious industry, including industrial prices – affordable for major brands, but unattainable for many smaller European initiatives or local partners of bigger NGOs. Being a part of that industry for over a decade, it became our dream to reach out to those specific groups and be(come) their partner in their beautiful missions.
Making high-quality security standards and services accessible for passion-driven people is the core of the DNA of Global Risk Advice. This directly results in organizing our services lean and keeping the margins small. Reaching your dreams comes with a price and as a team, we agreed on keeping our costs low in order to achieve more!
As a home-base, we found an ancient monastery – ‘Nieuw Sion’ – at the quiet perimeter of the city of Deventer, the Netherlands. A beautiful place, not known for its luxury, but for its impressive history of reflection, dedication, and preparing people to serve others. Our team consists of accredited, experienced advisors and facilitators, whose main objective is to equip, enable, and empower humanitarian staff and raise their confidence in operating safely in challenging circumstances. We may cut on luxury, but never on quality!
