    Video of guy getting backstage

    This has done the rounds on Facebook, so some of you will have seen it. It's worth watching to see how easily he did it. Lessons to learn - don't let people post pictures of VIP badges online.....

    I would't go as far as claiming that Show and Event are "very good" compared to Showsec, especially when they use a lot of the same people. Ive personally worked for two different small D/S companies which supplied staff to both companies. I could work for Showsec one weekend and Show and Event...

    Experienced door supervisor looking for advice...

    CCTV work, its pretty boring but the license will be cheaper as you already have your DS, plus in the job interview you can say something about having spent years learning to recognize potential problems from peoples body language etc.

    Speedy Weight Loss

    Just to weigh in (no pun intended) with my experiences. I had a long time of inactivity, based around mainly being a nights only manager in an office job. I started Brazilian Jujitsu in April, didn't really change my diet which wasn't great but certainly wasn't "bad", and was at about 185-190 in...

    Is height a factor on the doors?

    Defiantly got to agree with GreenLid1 on this. Get some training under your belt, especially a grappling system and your be fine if it gets physical and you will have the confidence that goes along with that, which will ultimately help you to avoid needing to use it in the first place.

    SIA Licence susended, help and advice needed

    If you are a bar that serves the general public then you need a DS or CP license. The only ways around licensing are if you are using security guards in-house, i.e. shops, building sites, etc, but NOT licensed premises. If you are a private members club then I think you can also get around it.
