What should you do if you find yourself held hostage by someone who is a dangerous threat?
The headlines and alerts sound off whenever there is a hostage situation and the danger level rises for, not only those held hostage, but for those who desperately try to end the situation with the least amount of damage.
Negotiating with someone who is holding another hostage with the threat of violence or death can not be taken lightly and commands the presence of professional negotiators to keep the situation at such a level that the threat to lives lost is minimized and the outcome is as positive as possible.
Derek Gaunt will give listeners an inside look into hostage negotiations and how he and other professionals from The Black Swan Group in Washington, DC have been successful in navigating through difficult circumstances.
Listeners will learn valuable information about what to do and how to act should you find your self in a hostage taking situation and how best to protect yourself and those around you. Gaunt will also discuss the after effects of a hostage situation on its victims and resources available to minimize the negative repercussions.
A former law enforcement officer, Derek Gaunt is currently a negotiator and trainer for The Black Swan Group using his skills not only in negotiating with hostage takers, but also within the corporate world. He teaches courses for law enforcement training, military and security personnel.
