Introducing Patrick Rogers
Houdah Al-Hakim, CEO of Quick Click Security introduces Patrick Rogers:
This week we had an incredibly fascinating conversation with Patrick Rogers who talks us through a very interesting career journey to date, from Somali Pirates to talking on the impact of the Iran Crisis on Maritime Security as an intelligence expert. Unlike some of our previous guests Patrick doesn’t have a police or ex forces background and came into security through an academic route, with an undergrad degree in International business and a Masters from Kings in Intelligence and International Security. He admits at one point, in the initial stages of his career he was made to feel at such a disadvantage that he nearly moved into another profession. Luckily for us he stuck it out – a real testament to his obvious commitment and self-perseverance. Patrick now works as a Senior Associate at S-RM covering Corporate intelligence, Crisis Management and Cyber Security. An incredibly diverse role which reaches across almost every area of client operations. Patrick gave me a real insight into “intelligence” work which just opened my eyes once more to the diversity of roles and positions this industry can offer. And of course our #talkaboutitTuesdays wouldn’t be the same without some industry hints and tips with Patrick offering some very helpful insights on how to network and what he is doing to fill his down time during the lockdown!
