Areas Of Expertise


MOM’s work across the globe varies from helping venues to increase their standing floor capacity to developing safer ingress and egress permutations, issues around crowd movement and safety and developing employees knowledge. MOM has also been working, as part of the YES group to promote safety at festivals.


MOM is different from many companies in this area as it fuses the theoretical concepts of crowd science with the key applications of the psychological and social. Clients from a range of spheres including festivals, venues, events, stadia, transport hubs, public spaces, parks and many others use MOM’s unique blend of theory and practice to help make their spaces safer.

Transport Hubs

MOM’s transport hub consultancy focuses on the development and testing of crowd management plans, HR issues, tender development, and staffing issues. Our consultants work on the delivery of reports focusing on the efficacy of plans, business continuity, staffing structures and numbers and crowd management in transport hubs. MOM provides support services including tabletop exercises, plan testing, and immersive learning activities in real time.

Counter Terrorism AND SECURITY

MOM’s high-quality immersive learning programmes support those working across the whole spectrum of counter terrorism and security both in indoor and outdoor spaces of any size or designation. The use of case studies and scenarios reflecting real-life real-time issues and challenges provide our clients with both an interactive and immersive experience.


MOM has provided expert witness testimony and reports and edited major disaster documents in both the UK and Europe. They take an objective approach, thoroughly reviewing the evidence, using timelines, putting it all into context and understanding motives, legalities, and guidance to create a comprehensive report.


MOM can provide lectures, seminars and conference keynotes in crowd safety, leadership, and management. Professor Chris Kemp provided an inaugural Professorial Public Lecture in Edinburgh for Edinburgh Napier University and has been commissioned to write several articles for major security magazines this year.


MOM has created over 40 courses covering the areas of leadership, events, crowd management, public order, risk and safety. All of MOM’s programmes are underpinned by scenario and work-based learning activities, turning theory into practice and vary in style and size, from one individual to 200.

We were looking for a consultant to work with the team at The O2 in order to increase our floor capacity for standing concerts. When we met with Chris it was obvious from the start that he was the right man for the job. Not only was he an expert in his field but his approach and methodology was exactly what we were looking for. He worked extremely well with members of staff at all levels in the organisation and was able to communicate appropriately toeach person’s skill set.
