Attendees will leave feeling empowered, excited, renewed, and grateful for a priceless experience that they will take home, remember, and repeat to everyone they love. The message isn’t just about effective means to prevent, and if necessary, survive an assault. The message translates into any area of life where a person needs strategies in self-control in a fearful situation (such as medical emergencies, crisis driving, public speaking, customer service conflicts and athletic performance). Through humor, tons of energy and inspiring storytelling, the presenters reach everyone in the audience on their journey through overcoming fear, no matter what it is.

    Attendees will be able to:
    • Explain proven effective self-control tactics for emotional, verbal, and physical control when frightened or confronted.
    • Discuss realistic crime prevention – staying one step ahead of set-ups.
    • Describe best options to survive physical violence and an armed attacker.
    • Employ simple “can-do” defense and crisis control strategies that are impossible to forget, thereby significantly lowering stress and improving job performance.
