Justine Oliver is an independent travel security specialist with extensive global expertise. For the last 16 years she has advised multi-nationals, NGO’s, media organisations, educational establishments, companies and individuals how to operate safely abroad.
From 2001 to 2015 Justine worked for Control Risks and then a joint venture between Control Risks and International SOS in London, providing all elements of travel security, incident and crisis management, business continuity and security solutions to clients around the globe.
During this time, Justine delivered regular training to clients operating abroad or sending new travellers and ex-pats into foreign environments. She conducts training, both via webinar and face-to-face, to individuals and groups across Europe.
Before specialising in travel security, Justine lived in Hong Kong for 4 years where she worked in development for the Hong Kong Cancer Fund. On leaving South East Asia, Justine decided not to fly home, but instead to spend 10 months sailing a 30 foot sailing boat back to London with her future husband. During this time Justine honed her writing skills by documenting her trip and her resulting articles were serialized in Yachting Monthly.
Justine has travelled and worked in over 58 countries and has just returned from a 5 month trip, with her husband and two children, self-driving a 1957 landrover to Iran and back.
Justine holds a degree in Combined Studies from Newcastle University. She currently lives in SW France.
