STORM Consultancy Proudly Celebrates Five Years

Celebrations continued this weekend for Southport-based STORM Consultancy UK as they marked five years in business with the successful delivery of the Liverpool Pride 2014 event for the fourth year running.

STORM Consultancy UK specialises in high risk health and safety and large event management, working round the clock to provide complex services to clients ranging from large music festivals to air-shows.

Last weekend’s Glam Fairy Tales themed bash started with the iconic Pride parade from St George’s Plateau before marching to the Pier Head and Stanley Street. The event attracted over 50,000 and adds to a growing portfolio of events in 2014 that already include The Liverpool International Tennis Tournament, St Mary’s Proms in the Park and the Southport Flower Show, set to be built this week in Victoria Park.

The STORM concept was founded by decorated ex-army major Jonathan Cunningham MBE whose vast experience and knowledge of the industry led him to open up his own company. After serving in areas across the world and leading over 10,000 staff in his final UK posting, Jonathan left the army in 2009 after 16 years with a plan. The result: a unique and innovative service offering that helps hundreds of organisations and business to deliver events and carry out day-to-day business with health and safety as a top priority. 

“Live events such as Pride present a very specific set of risk exposures requiring the close management of massive movements of the public and staff. The complex logistical operations are reliant upon strategic partnerships with many organisations and agencies and require months of advance planning. These projects draw directly on so many military skill sets and it is here that our ability to strategically plan, adapt to change and maintain a global and very real perspective come right into play.” Explains Jonathan

Today, with a permanent staff of nine, STORM also employs a number of apprentices, hundreds more contractors and actively seeks volunteers where possible to gain valuable experience on unique project and events.
