The event will take the form of a talk by Iain followed by Q&A. It will be of interest to those in the private, public and voluntary sectors who have responsibility for ethics /CSR in their organisations, and to leaders whose organisations face particular challenges in these areas.

In 2003 Iain was promoted to the rank of Superintendent and took on a new role within North Yorkshire Police as the Head of Public Access, which included responsibility for the Control Rooms, call handling and crime recording. Following twelve months as Operational Commander on the Eastern Area of North Yorkshire he was promoted to the rank of Chief Superintendent taking over as the Area Commander for the City of York and Selby District in May 2005.

During 2010 and 2011 Iain led the Human Resources Directorate holding responsibility for all HR related activity and leading delivery of the HR components of the Force’s response to the challenging CSR cuts. Iain was promoted to Assistant Chief Constable on 1 August 2011, with responsibility for all operational policing across North Yorkshire and the City of York.

In June 2013 Iain joined Cleveland Police as Deputy Chief Constable where he has responsibility for corporate performance, leading change and the development of strategic partnerships. In July 2016 Iain was successful in his application to become Cleveland Police Chief Constable. In addition to being Chief Constable, he is the national lead for ethics in policing.
