Human Performance Seminars

In 2017 we will be hosting a number of Human Performance Seminars in various locations across the country including at our University of Exeter base (pictured). These will be an opportunity to meet fellow industry professionals and share best practice. They will also serve as an introduction to the kind of ‘Evidence-Based’ training we specialise in, including demos of our Virtual Reality and eye-tracking technology.

The seminars are fully packed with the following agenda:

  • Dr Samuel Vine of the University of Exeter will be presenting research into ‘Challenge and Threat reactions’ and how these can influence decision making and performance.
  • There will be Human Performance exercises using Oculus Rift headsets and touch sensors. These will include a demonstration of a current nuclear decommissioning project in the UK.
  • Beehive Coaching and Leadership Development Ltd will case study work they have undertaken with Bangor University looking at Trust Models.
  • We will be demonstrating research relating to the use of eye movement tracking and training with examples from military, aviation and sporting settings.
  • The use of 360 video technique will be showcased in an immersive training scenario applicable to a range of environments.
  • Ex-airline pilot and Human Performance Specialist Trevor Dale will be speaking at the event. Trevor was one of the pioneers of Crew Resource Management training in British Airways and co-author of SLIPS (Safety and Leadership for Interventional Procedures and Surgery) course at the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
  • Sammy Tweddle, Senior Assurance Engineer at Horizon Nuclear Power will be giving a presentation entitled ‘Practical Applications of Human Factors in Nuclear Safety Assessments’
