in the words of our clients

Swedish Committee for Afghanistan

”During spring 2018, Metis Services Inc. have on behalf of SCA evaluated our security organisation, routines and trainings. Based on the analysis made, Metis Services have developed solutions and presented both recommendations and action plan for SAK in order to maintain and upgrade our ability to perform development projects in one of the most dangerous environments in the world.

The advisors from Metis Services have extensive knowledge and a very good ability to produce tailored solutions, based on mapping and analysing the operational context, as well as the abilities of the recipient. The advisors from Metis Services worked as security advisors in Kabul during periods of time and gave on-site trainings and exemplified what a strengthened organization could look like.  The advisors of Metis Services demonstrated high and wide technical competence, but also impressed by sharing their knowledge through ‘soft’ communication and through a well-founded and well written report, delivered ahead of scheduled dead line. Incoming security staff members have evaluated the delivered report from Metis Services and have confirmed, through their own expertise, its analysis, conclusions and recommendations, something that further strengthens our judgement that the advisors from Metis Services have relevant competence and experience well on par with the managements needs on both strategic and operative level.”

– Malena Rembe, SCA Country Director Afghanistan

 

Reporters Without Borders

”Metis Services Inc. has been tasked by RWB to develop and execute security trainings for journalist students and active freelance journalists. The trainings have included both methodology for prevention and mitigation of risks and handling incidents which might occur whilst covering news in high-risk environments, e.g. interrogation, informal conversations, first aid in the field and surviving hostage situations. The instructors of Metis Services have immense knowledge and very good ability to not only conduct lectures but to give realistic exercises. Reporters Without Borders are very satisfied with our cooperation with Metis Services and sincerely look forward to planning new activities together as soon as new opportunities and needs arise.”

– Jonathan Lundqvist, Chairman of Reportrar utan gränser

 

Stockholm University, Department of Media Studies

"I have been working together with Metis Services for three years, in terms of security training within the framework of my courses for foreign correspondence at basic- and master level, having plenty of good experiences from it. They have substantial experiences and theoretical knowledge in security and risk analysis, including an ability to lecture and give valuable and engaging topic-related workshops. Without their work here at JMK, I really would not have dared to send out young journalism students for missions in countries such as Lebanon, Burma, Colombia and Russian-occupied Ukraine.
