Mind Over Matter | Consultancy Services


I have known Professor Chris Kemp, CEO of Mind Over Matter, for nearly ten years – firstly through participating on his crowd management courses around Europe and thereafter through my FDA and MSc studies at Buckinghamshire New University where he was the Pro Vice Chancellor and an acting mentor to me. Professor Chris Kemp has phenomenal commitment to his Event & Crowded Spaces courses and is always seeking new and groundbreaking knowledge. Chris is very well known throughout Europe for his skills and knowledge and also for his ability to explain complex issues in a simple and understandable way. He is seen as the ‘Gold Standard’ in his industry.

We were looking for a consultant to work with the team at The O2 in order to increase our floor capacity for standing concerts. When we met with Chris it was obvious from the start that he was the right man for the job. Not only was he an expert in his field but his approach and methodology was exactly what we were looking for. He worked extremely well with members of staff at all levels in the organisation and was able to communicate appropriately to each person’s skill set. The project was completed on schedule and with the required result, a phased increase in capacity which in total gave us a 10% increase, more than was originally expected.

Chris Kemp, CEO of Mind Over Matter, is one of the main contributors to event and crowd education across Europe. He is a leader in this field and is a well- respected figurehead, especially in his role in Event and Crowded Space education and as a driving force in the Yourope, YES Group. Chris is always able to offer a fresh and innovative approach, whilst never forgetting the details or the big picture.

‘Mind Over Matter is a forward thinking company and I am very excited to be able to work with them. Their philosophy around training and personal development is extremely innovative and contemporary. There is no question that anyone that takes and completes the MOM Leadership and Management programme will benefit in his or her career choices.

Eva Neupaur- Jones, Missenden Abbey

Professor Kemp and his team carried out a long term project for us to look at our standing floor, with a view to hopefully increasing our standing capacity.
Professor Kemp’s findings were detailed, positive, and insightful. The finished project will be invaluable for our business decisions in the future.
He was extremely professional throughout the project, the team enjoyed working alongside him and learnt a lot through the process. We are grateful for the support and assistance he has provided for our organisation.

I can confirm that our organisation has worked with worked with Mind Over Matter / Chris Kemp on a number of training programmes for staff and event organisers over the past few years.  These include crowd management, event safety and event resilience.  Our experience of working with Chris and his team has been excellent and we plan to continue using his expertise in the future.  I have no hesitation recommending him.  He is always well prepared, is a good speaker and has a wealth of experience he can draw upon.

Roskilde Festival has worked with Chris Kemp since 2003. In the beginning, as part of Bucks University, and now as an independent consultant and director of Mind Over Matter.

Over the last 12 years, I have had the pleasure of planning and implementing 24 Health and Safety seminars for European festival organisers together with Chris, and can warmly recommend Mind Over Matter, as a partner and supplier.

Roskilde Festival has used Chris Kemp and Mind Over Matter’s services on several occasions. Most recently this summer, Chris Kemp carried out a survey of different crowd safety items and compiled a report with accompanying recommendations.

Here at Police Scotland we run a 5-day bespoke training course for “Event Commanders”. We employ the services of Mind Over Matter to present on the science, psychology and wider implications of crowd dynamics and crowd control.  We have been so impressed by their expertise, the quality of their service and the overall presentation that we dedicate an entire day to them.

Our training programmes are all subject to a quality assurance process to ensure that all presentations meet the required learning outcomes for the course.  The Mind Over Matter presentation is subject to this same process and has been found to be fit for purpose and is always well received by the students.

We have had an entirely positive experience working with Mind Over Matter, who we consider to be subject matter experts.
