As an IT security consultant since 1995, I am able to impart valuable information to attendees that greatly increases their online safety & cybersecurity as well as that of their company, school or organization. As a martial artist & self-defense instructor for over 20 years, I also educate & train others on how to effectively protect themselves from physical threats using simple concepts & by having the Warrior Mindset! My keynotes, workshops, courses & retreats are all focused on providing others with the essential skills & knowledge to stay safe in the online world & the offline world.

"Staying Safe presents sound advice for their transition, to include:Personal Safety, Travel Safety, Cyber Safety, Social Media and Mobile Phone Do's and Don'ts, Alcohol/Party Drugs, Prescription Meds, and many others.

What to Expect
Everyone wants and deserves to be safe and secure as they go about their day, not worried, fearful and helpless. These are problems we need to solve now, and when personal safety is involved, there can be no mistakes, especially when seconds count. There are 86,400 seconds in each day, but it only takes one second to change your life. What I am able to do is make people safer in minutes, not months.
Presentations are meaningful, educational and entertaining and provide real value and takeaways that can be put to immediate use. Being able to take the sensitive topics of online security and offline personal safety and relate to the audience is what I am able to do effectively and rapidly. My presentations, workshops and keynotes are empowering and provide information, strategies and specific techniques that will make attendees safer.
The following are a summary of wants, needs, results and outcomes from my various keynotes, presentations and workshops.
- Attendees will get laser-focused on where they are most vulnerable - both online and offline.
- Attendees will be able to understand and identify various online risks to personal safety.
- Attendees will experience improved safety awareness, or "Safety IQ" immediately.
- 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 learn how to define their personal boundaries.
- Attendees will learn how to identify suspect communications.
- Attendees will enjoy their jobs more knowing that they work in a safe workplace environment.
- Attendees will develop the proper mindset to survive threats to their personal safety.
- Attendees will have reduced stress through education and skills learned during the event.
If you need a speaker that will resonate and relate to your audience with a topic on everyone's minds, you need me at your next event. Don't get stuck trying to figure out what should be presented or feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume of speaking topics. Who needs another motivational speech, sales or leadership presentation or story of how the speaker overcame great odds and personal tragedy? Not to take anything away from those types of speeches/presentations, but what really matters is imparting real skills onto your people that have a direct and immediate impact on both the individual as well as the organization as a whole. Don't regret not selecting something of real value that can help improve the safety and security of your company, school or organization.

Additional Booking Notes
For most presentations & workshops, a projector and screen are needed. Audio should be supplied via a wireless microphone. Lighting should be on me and positioned in such a way that the screen is not "washed out" due to excessive lighting.
If I am performing any physical demonstrations, sufficient spacing of approximately 10'x10' with a padded surface such as a wrestling mat is preferred. For larger workshops, figure on 5'x5' of space for every 2 people. For example, if I am doing a self-defense workshop with 30 people, that would require approximately 375 square feet of space. (30 people / 2) x 25' sq.
Detailed information will be provided for each event on an individual basis.
