Tutor: Vanessa Harrison

Vanessa Harrison, BA (Hons), CELTA, DELTA, MBA, MSc, ARM, PG Cert

Vanessa creates and delivers management system training for risk-based ISO management system standards. She specialises in ISO 37001, ISO 37301, ISO 27001, ISO 22301, ISO 31000, and ISO 9001. Vanessa implements and audits the aforementioned standards and teaches the same at all levels from foundation to lead auditor.

Vanessa has worked with standards for well over 20 years, both in-house and as an independent consultant. She has travelled the world teaching and consulting in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia, with the ability to deliver projects in multiple languages.

In the UK, Vanessa sits on the national standards committees RM/1 and CAR/1. These committees are responsible for revising and updating risk management standards, including ISO 31000, and Vanessa represents the UK at the international level for this standard. This is where her knowledge of linguistics is particularly valuable, as part of the standards-development process.

With an MSc in Finance, Vanessa is very much interested in the anti-bribery standard ISO 37001 and the compliance standard ISO 37301. In 2019, she travelled to Kazakhstan to work with government officials who were dedicated to implementing anti-bribery control measures.
