    Behavioural Analysis and Risk Factors for Children | Sandra Adiarte

    Behavioural Analysis and Risk Factors for Children | Sandra Adiarte

    Professionally, you might be doing the 'correct' thing but is it the right thing in the eyes of UHNW parents? You're the protector and not the nanny but you still need to gain compliance and cooperation when protecting children. And so it was a pleasure to welcome Sandra Adiarte, Founder of Apollo Synergetics to discuss:
    What communication styles should you employ with toddlers when compared to teenagers?How can you communicate high risk threats to small children?How should you avoid becoming a 'buddyguard'?What additional traits or skills are UHNW parents looking for in EP when deploying around their children?What risk factors do usual EP operations not take into consideration when looking after children?

    Future EP Services | Live At the Ninth Annual Executive Security & CP Technology Forum London

    What if the modernization of EP is more about the protector themselves and less about the type of service offered? Following the last four years we have seen a push to include more desk based intelligence services but can anything replace the 'last ten feet'?
    Join us where we review a live recording from the Ninth Annual Executive Security and CP Technology Forum in London with a fantastic international panel with representatives from the UK, Mexico, US and Germany to address the balance between the modernization of the service and those serving:
    What new services will clients ask for in 2024?How can you get direct access to the principal to ask what they actually want?How is the EP scene today in Germany, UK, US and Mexico?What does the modernization of the protector actually look like?Does modernization have to mean the adoption of technology?

    Breaking Down Barriers & Unlocking Doors with Higher Education | Craig Smith

    Breaking Down Barriers & Unlocking Doors with Higher Education | Craig Smith

    Are Master's degrees designed for your employment prospects or personal fulfilment?
    This week, we’re joined by Craig Smith from Minerva Elite Performance, who shares his thoughts on the importance and value of higher education within the security industry.
    In this episode, we examine how higher qualifications like Masters or PhDs could potentially differentiate professionals in this field, add value to their careers, and even provide a 'key' to open doors to opportunities.
    Craig emphasizes the importance of knowing one's purpose or the 'why' before pursuing higher education and the values of institutional support and engaging subject specialists.
    The conversation also touches on the impact of business and management education, and we’ll try to break down some of the perceived 'barriers' around higher education.
    Tune in to hear this wide-ranging discussion including:The Allure of Tertiary Qualifications for ProtectorsThe Role of Higher Education in Enhancing EmployabilityIs there a Danger of Overqualifying Yourself?How can protectors differentiate between higher education providers?What do all the levels actually mean?

    Navigating Security Opportunities in Asia | Oliver JT Laurence

    Navigating Security Opportunities in Asia | Oliver JT Laurence

    Operating in Asia requires a cultural appreciation not just of your destination but of how you will be perceived in that geography.
    In this episode, our guest is Oliver JT Laurence, Director of Operations at I-OnAsia, headquartered in Hong Kong. We explore the complexities and challenges that security professionals face in this dynamic region, shedding light on the nuances of operating effectively amidst cultural, political, and economic shifts.
    We delve into:
    What services are most in demand from international operators in Asia?What types of operators are best suited or will be best received?Do you need to be fluent in Mandarin to succeed in the region?What geopolitical considerations should operators be aware of?How can international practitioners validate the credentials of local partners?
    "It's not going anywhere. It's important that we recognize that and support clients both in and out of the jurisdiction in any way we can." - OL
