Presentation #1 Details
- Armed with Awareness™ - Recognizing Workplace Threats Before Problems Arise -
Establishing routines and staying within our comfort zones breeds complacency – both online and offline. Just because you have never been a victim of identity theft or sexual assault doesn’t mean it can’t happen to you. Ignoring a problem does not make it go away. This keynote is intense, and gets to the root of why most people ignore situations until they become victims. It will inspire others to not be complacent, but proactive in being aware and prepared before the need to act arises.

Attendee Takeaways:
- Attendees will learn why established routines and comfort zones are dangerous for their personal safety.
- Attendees will be able to recognize and ultimately begin to vary their routines to prevent complacency and a false sense of security.
- Attendees will stop ignoring threats to their personal safety and begin to identify potential threats that exist during their daily lives.

Why would a booker choose you (sell yourself a bit)?
Threats to our safety, identity, and livelihood have never been greater. I can be the "go-to" resource for any organization looking to improve the security of their company and the safety of their employees. I am dedicated to keeping people and businesses safe in both the digital world and the physical world.

Through my extensive experience as an IT consultant who has run their own business since 1995, I have adapted and evolved along with the threats to my clients from cyber criminals in order to keep my clients' systems, networks and data secure.

As a martial arts and self-defense instructor for over 25 years, I have trained hundreds of individuals (men, women, children, professionals, etc) on how to improve their personal safety and security and effectively defend themselves from physical attack.

I make people and organizations safer in minutes, not months when seconds count.
