Directors John Harkin and Colin McGowan established Foresee Associates in April 2009, following completion of their respective thirty-year careers with Strathclyde Police. Both directors amassed extensive specialist experience in the world of resilience, emergency planning, public order, firearms, major events, hostage negotiation, counter terrorism, civil and military nuclear protection and major incident management.

Now established as one of the leading resilience consultancies in Scotland, the company operates widely in the public, private and international sectors, providing tailored professional services to clients. Services offered include resilience audits, testing of emergency plans and designing bespoke emergency exercises (table top or live play). Foresee also delivers training courses in resilience management, multi agency incident management, situational awareness, decision-making, crisis communications, incident briefing / debriefing and the role of the incident officer.

In recent years the range of products and services has expanded to include loss prevention and profit protection work and the company now offers loss prevention audits, staff awareness training and internal investigations in support of HR misconduct proceedings.

As our name suggests Foresee Associates is not in the hindsight business. Our touchstone is preparedness. In our vast professional experience sound planning and preparedness leads to a more professional response and to a rapid, more effective recovery.
