KB Security & Training Ltd
Kenyon Barker: Biography
Why I formed KB Security and Training Ltd:
I formed my own security and stewarding company because I’ve worked in the security industry for years. I have seen the good and bad companies. This has lead to bad experiences towards both staff and clientele which then gave me the motivation to decide the only way to bring the security industry up and above the standards that are set out for us was to form my own company and be selective on the quality of staff we bring for our clients.
Using the good companies I have worked with and many of these now being my clients, i have been able to build a strong, reputable and honest company forward into the security industry and look forward to bringing more clients in.
Being the managing director of KB Security and Training Ltd is a challenging, yet rewarding experience.
With being very selective on staffing for the security and stewarding roles and the positions they are placed has helped us run our own events with the support of great clients.
All Stewards hold or are working towards or have their NVQ level 2 in Spectator safety.
All Supervisors whom hold a Door Supervisors license or Close Protection license have or are working towards their level 3 and all managers are or are working towards their level 4 spectator safety qualification.
This level of qualification and constant training allows us to give a better quality of staffing for all events.
I myself am working towards my level 4 spectator safety qualification, and hold many other qualifications along with being a trainer for the security industry with our awarding body being Highfields.
I believe that staff should be qualified in their relevant fields of work. So, with this I have opened the training side to my company which offers all staff the opportunity to gain different qualifications so that our clients and staff are happier in their work and deliver the best job satisfaction.
Events we cater for
UK Calendar Girls
“We have been using KB Security since Dec 2017 for numerous high profile events including the UK Calendar Girls Grand Final.
We have always been very happy with the sheer level of professionalism and strategic planning they put into every event we do, this also extends to traffic and crowd management on the pedestrianised areas for our Grand Final events.
KB will also lend a hand for setting up of operations and group transport if required. As well as this we have found KB to be very experienced with customer liaison and stewarding. Kenyon Barker and his management team are always available to discuss and to resolve any challenges we face swiftly and professionally. KB Security continues to deliver a safe environment for all our Calendar Girls and staff and provide a seamless operation with minimum issues.
KB doesn’t just offer a security team, they have offer a solution to all and every concern we have faced at our events”
