Inside story: Red Cross - behind the scenes of crisis

A unique opportunity to find out what life is like for Red Cross staff working in conflict and disaster zones

A talk by our chief executive & Red Cross workers on their experiences within conflict and disaster zones.

This is a unique opportunity to find out what life is for the Red Cross helping in crisis situations - these are the stories that don't make the headlines. CEO Sir Nick Young and Red Cross workers will describe their personal experiences working in conflict and disaster zones across the world.

Sandrine Tiller will talk about her experiences in the Middle East, where she spent seven years working for the Red Cross on programmes such as supporting volunteer rescue workers and improving emergency medical services in Lebanon. Sandrine is now based at the British Red Cross Head Office in London as a Humanitarian Policy Adviser.

Sir Nick Young will speak about visits he has made to Red Cross projects in the UK and around the world during the past seven years. Nick will describe the progress he has seen and poignant meetings with beneficiaries.

There will be a question and answer session at the end of the evening.
