Tristan Barston

Principal Preparedness Solutions Advisor

As a multi-disciplined Senior Consultant/Response Specialist with a strong background in organizational preparedness and contingency planning at both strategic and tactical response levels, Tristan is experienced in working on emergency response processes and contingency planning development activities in remote and challenging environments, for both offshore and onshore operations. As he spent his early life serving with the British Military in various engagements around the globe, he is well versed in doing more with less and thinking outside of the normal boundaries of what can be achieved, a message he is keen to pass on to the next generation of incident management and emergency response personnel, through virtual and face to face training, webinars, desktop or deployment drills and exercises.

When not involved in OSRL activities Tristan runs a street dog rescue based in Houston, Texas. He secretly prefers dogs to most humans!
