Keith has consulted on some of the world’s largest, and most challenging crowd safety projects. He developed and teaches a wide range of crowd dynamics, crowd science, crowd planning, crowd safety and crowd risk analysis short courses. The courses are attended by event organisers, police, first responders, emergency planners, city authorities, building control officers, licensing officers, architects, event managers, security companies, venue operators and consulting engineers. In 2019, he moved the entire course series online (GKSED.com) for international audiences. There are move than 950 learners who have access the system in the last year. One of Keith's course's (PEC's - Public Event Commanders) are mandatory training for all UK Police commanders.
“Keith Still’s workshops have focussed the minds of many people in realising just how easy it can be for disaster to occur, and equally how simple the solutions often are.” Eric Stuart, former Metropolitan Police Event Planner for Notting Hill Carnival and London New Year Events now chair of the UK Crowd Management Association
Shannan Tiffin, Captain of Support Services/Emergency Management at Duke University Police Department, found the workshop to be very beneficial. “There is not a lot out there about crowd behavior and psychology,” said Tiffin. “The workshop provided us with a simplified approach to understanding the behaviors of how people act, and ingress and egress from a venue or stadium.” NCS4 course (USA)
Rebecca Wilusz, Associate Director of Game Operations and Champion at Duke University Athletics, agrees with Tiffin. “Keith has done a great job of making the information accessible – I have left the workshop with both simple and effective tools to be able to build better plans and train our athletics staff more efficiently.

“A fantastic and beneficial course, it was the only course I had ever done where I was upset when it finished, the course provides a unique and mathematical approach to crowd engineering, the consensus of all who attended was that it provided us with the tools and confidence to do our job” Operations Manager. Sydney Opera House (Australia)
“This course opens your eyes to the potential issues with Mass Gatherings. As well as providing an individual with the tools and knowledge to assess the event plans and proposed mitigation for major events. With the introduction of the Crowd Science Qualification it would be in your best interest to attend. The delivery and information provided is beyond reproach and glad to see the course in Australia!” CEO. Canberra Exhibition Park (Australia)
"These courses were invaluable enabling me to illustrate quickly and precisely any issues that arose at the venues we attended and pass on my recommendations to the security team in a manner the was easily understood." Dave Wilkie, Event Safety Officer, U2 360 European Tour
Introduction to Crowd Science is the text book for the courses, outlining the background and development of the crowd risk analysis tools and their application.
