Liverpool UKTEES Forum welcomes Greater Manchester Police delegation

The UK Technology Enhanced Emergency Services Forum brings together 125 key stakeholders responsible for the effective and consistent delivery of UK ‘Blue Light Services’. To ensure our agenda is inclusive of the latest issues and barriers restricting new technologies into these services, we have invited a wide range of delegates and decision makers from across the UK. The latest delegate to join our Liverpool forum is Tim Forber, Chief Superintendent for Greater Manchester Police.


Tim said “Providing police officers with the right information and technology is critical to enabling the service to operate as part of a more integrated public service. This is essential both in terms of efficiency and being able to provide citizens with the sort of service they require in the future.”

eSE forums are unique and built around our end users and technology innovators, to create the potential for strong, sustainable and mutually beneficial partnerships aiming to improve the UK Emergency Services. Learn more about Greater Manchester Police at

Forum participants play key role within new ‘exploratory’ panel session

At eSE we are proud to facilitate a unique series of UK Public Sector forums utilising our own innovative format. Our forums are a development from established trade shows and exhibitions – there are no large conference halls, no stands or booths, and a restricted number of delegates.  This ensures you build beneficial relationships designed to improve efficiency, service delivery and end user experience through technology innovation.  As our forum series continue to grow in popularity, we are constantly evolving our format to ensure participants gain maximum benefit from attendance.

Exploratory panel session

eSE forums are fully interactive.

Our UK Technology Enhanced Homecare Forum will now benefit from a new energetic “Interactive Exploratory Panel Session”. This session will be split into two distinct parts which will see delegates break into groups to discuss key themes highlighted by our agenda board and from delegate contributions. Each group will submit 3 or 4 points to the eSE team and panel chair, in this instance Trevor Single CEO for Telecare Services Association, after a short break within our ‘Solution Centre’, delegates will return for the second half. Our panellists from the public sector will discuss the overriding ‘problem points’ contributed by delegates, trying to find resolutions from their extensive experience. eSE’s fully interactive format will encourage audience delegates to voice additional points and innovative solutions which can help overcome these issues. The pre-planned afternoon sessions will then continue to explore the themes highlighted.

The new exploratory session will establish the proactive and discussion-led atmosphere, which is crucial for enabling new partnerships and producing genuine results. We are certain delegates will highlight common problems early and end-users will discover the innovative solutions available to them and learn how to overcome the barriers when procuring them. All participants of the #UKTCF are excited about technology enabled care services and are keen to implement progressive projects, which will make a real difference to both private and NHS long term condition patients and their quality of care.

Ricoh UK expands partnership with eSE’s Public Sector Services Series.

Global technology leader Ricoh UK will continue to support eSE’s expanding Public Sector Series by partnering the UK Technology Enhanced Emergency Services Forum. The forum, co-facilitated with Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service, will now benefit from Ricoh’s printing and technical support as well as  including the organisation’s leading solutions supplied to the ‘Blue Light Services’. Ricoh’s continuing partnership comes at a time which sees eSE expand its trio of Public Sector Services forum series to include specialist ‘On-Site’ forums, designed to showcase examples of innovative technology solutions overcoming challenges in public sector service delivery from region to region.Ricoh

Ricoh led research by the Economist Intelligence Unit argues that the most significant barrier to technology adoption in ‘Blue Light Services’ is due to time constraints on Emergency Services professionals themselves. Within the Emergency Services market Ricoh UK provides a wide range of Managed Document Solutions aimed at improving efficiency and secure data management throughout the command structure. Solutions to be demonstrated include Multifunctional Devices (MFD) which are enabled with data security systems to keep investigations secure and ‘Follow-me’ print which ensures high availability without the need for out of hours cover. Staff can spend more time on the frontline by using Ricoh’s scanning and workflow software to free them from time consuming administration, whilst outside the office Ricoh’s mobile solution improve the speed and quality of information input from scene of an incident.

Alasdair McCormick, National Sales Director for Government at Ricoh UK said “We’re committed to improving the sector’s approach to information management and by providing reliable solutions that are easy to use and well supported, Ricoh allows emergency services professionals to focus on what they do best: providing a robust and efficient lifesaving service. Our partnership with eSE will help to establish this platform as an opportunity to showcase the numerous technological solutions which can aid UK emergency services.”


Following the continuing growth of the UK Health Informatics Series, and supported by Ricoh UK, eSE’s national forums will be supplemented with focused ‘On-site’ meetings. The On-Site meetings will take place between the main forums and provide a platform to advance the discussions and develop partnerships, this ensures that the series continually builds upon itself, and that industry experts have a chance to meet and learn from examples of regional innovation. More information for the “On-Site” meetings and their locations can be found on the UK Health Informatics, Technology Enhanced Homecare and the UK Technology Enhanced Emergency Services websites.

AREC Chairman and Prince of Jordan Asem Bin Nayef hosts Powering Middle East Summit

The annual Powering Middle East Summit is once again facilitated in partnership with the Arab Renewable Energy Commission. The Summit, which brings together expertise in renewable energy implementation across the MENA region, with local and international technology innovators, shares many core principles with AREC, and looks forward to developing new partnerships which will help advance AREC’s renewable energy mission. Chairman of AREC and Prince of Jordan, HRH Prince Asem bin Nayef has graciously agreed to host the Powering Middle East Summit.

AREC is a not for profARECit non-government commission which was founded in 2011, its members represent several Arab countries and sets out to encourage the use of clean renewable energy in the Arab world. The commission aims to create awareness and encourage investments between partners by overcoming challenges, whether this is uncertainties in regional legislation, or a lack of knowledge in how to exploit renewable energy resources. AREC continues to develop renewable energy culture and explain the benefits to the members, with the aim of shifting green energy to the main source of energy, helping to reduce the effects of global warming and climate change and meet environmental targets for the region. These targets currently sit between 10% and 20% energy harvested from renewable sources by 2020.

AREC’s purpose is to create a regional centre, which acts as both a regional and international platform for researchers, engineers, economists, vendors and public sector officials, to help advance green technology innovations, maximise public awareness and create opportunities for renewable energy project implementation across all Arab countries. AREC will contribute its knowledge in Middle Eastern renewable energy policy and expertise to help strengthen the agenda for the Powering Middle East Summit. The summit will work together with AREC to create an inclusive and exclusive atmosphere which will build long term partnerships which have the ability to advance MENA renewable energy ambitions.

The Cots for Tot charity golf day took place yesterday with the event raising a fanGolf Swingtastic £1500 for the Bristol based charity. The event hosted by the Clifton Connection and facilitated by eSE was a huge success, bringing together 18 Clifton based offices and firms to compete against each other for the golfing top spot. The day proved to have a very competitive spirit with a number of prizes and titles up for grabs.

We are pleased to announce that First Class Comms were the main competition winners walking away with the top prize – a four ball golf day at Castle Coombe Golf Course. eSE’s own Andrew Bell and his team were the main competition runners up with Amarelle finishing in third place. There was also a Par 3 Competition with John Hayfield of The Brunel in Clifton taking the title.

Andrew Bell speaking at the event said “We are thrilled by the level of support from Clifton Connection firms taking part today. The money raised will go a long way towards funding the specialist equipment the charity so desperately needs”. Alistair Allison, co-founder of the Clifton Connection, was equally pleased with the turnout for the event “I am very pleased that Clifton Connection members got behind the cause and gave it their all today, it is hugely encouraging to see local business come together in aid of charity”.

eSE would like to thank all of the teams who took part in the day as well as the work by the Clifton Connection setting up the event. We would also like to thank the sponsors for donating some great prizes, and a final thank you to The Player’s Club for allowing us to facilitate the event at a fantastic local venue.

Updated: Clifton Businesses send Golfers in aid of Cots for Tots.


eSE Summit Director Andrew Bell is hoping to raise over £2000 for Bristol based charity appeal ‘Cots for Tots’. eSE will be facilitating a charity golf day to be held on April 3rd, which will be run as a partnership between the Clifton Connection and Clifton RFC. Andrew hopes to gather 24 teams of budding golfers from Bristol and Clifton based businesses to take part in the event hosted by The Players Club golf course.

All funds raised from the day will be donated to the Cots for Tots appeal which supports the life changing work done by St Michael’s hospital. The Appeal raises funds which help to provide lifesaving equipment for the Special Care Baby Unit caring for sick and premature babies and their families.

Andrew recently welcomed his own daughter at St Michaels Hospital and had the opportunity to see the work done by the staff at St Michaels. Speaking about the charity Andrew said “We were in the hospital for 5 days and fortunately did not need the services of the charity, but we did see others who did. This had led me to become involved with the charity and is something I want to help raise funds to support.”

A number of Clifton based businesses and offices have submitted their carefully built teams including Scottish Widows, Royal Bank of Scotland as well as Clifton firms Amarelle and Tuffin Ferraby Taylor.  We are still keen to garner the support of more local firms to help reach our ambitious target.

Alistair Allison, of Tuffin Ferraby Taylor and co-founder of the Clifton connection commented “Our Charity Golf day provides an excellent opportunity, not only to raise valuable funds for a very worthy cause, but provide a great networking potential between the area’s top firms whilst undertaking what is likely to be a very competitive day of golfing”.

He continued “We are pleased to be donating to the Cots for Tots appeal who provide an extremely important service which resonates with all parents, including myself as a father of one”.
