    Transitioning from the Police to the Private Sector in EP | Scott Hamer

    Transitioning from the Police to the Private Sector in EP | Scott Hamer

    How can the 'verbal Judo' skills from policing translate into the private sector of EP and what can both learn from each other? Join recently retired Royalty and Specialist Protection specialist Scott Hamer as we explore:
    What should operators in the police better understand before transitioning to the private sector?
    How can one assess the motives behind seeking EP employment after retiring from the police and why does that matter?
    What are the key verbal judo skills that will assist a transitioning colleague beyond their police career?
    What new technology can the private sector expect to see after having first being used in the public sector?

    About Scott:
    Scott is currently employed by Birmingham 2022 (Commonwealth Games) working as a Venue Security Manager at The Alexander Stadium with specific responsibility for the opening and closing ceremonies and all Internationally Protected Persons. Prior to this I served over 30 years in The Metropolitan Police.

    Mid-Season Review | The Circuit Team

    Mid-Season Review | The Circuit Team

    This week we have all four hosts of the Circuit Magazine Podcast in the same room at the same time… an event as rare as a solar eclipse! And you might need those shades because while the sun is beating down on the northern hemisphere, we thought we would catch up with Phelim, Shaun, Jon and Elijah between operational commitments for a mid-year roundup.
    In this week’s show the team not only reflects on the first half of the new podcast season but we also discuss what it means to be an operationally active protector, how we juggle work commitments, and how we blindsided Shaun to unknowingly become a guest on his own podcast!
    Join the team for this light-hearted look back over the past 6 months while we share:
    • What each host’s top 3 podcast episodes have been at the midway point.
    • What we’ve learned by starting a podcast.
    • The balance between being a ‘grey man’ for operational purposes while being a figurehead in the industry.
    • The importance of reviewing and purging your social media and why we should learn from industry mishaps while avoiding criticism.

    Uncovering Synergies between Guarding and EP | Tim Keller

    Guarding whether manned or mobile is the starting pathway many pursue in the security sector so is it time to shine a positive light on skillsets developed that might be transferable to other sectors like EP?

    Is it possible to progress through the corporate ranks of a larger manned guarding provider when compared to a boutique firm?
    What skillset are larger manned guarding companies looking for from entry level candidates?
    Is there a 'revolving door' between executive protection and manned guarding depending on the economic climate?
    Will we ever see robot guards augmenting the service?
    What are the greatest challenges ahead for manned and mobile guarding?

    Your Next German Operation | Dr Christoph Eichel

    Your Next German Operation | Dr Christoph Eichel

    Have you ever met a German EP operator on international missions? For a country and economy as strong and large as Germany the adoption of EP and security in general is surprisingly low - but all that is changing.
    We are delighted to welcome Dr Christoph Eichel, CEO and Founder of Solitaire Advisory to address:
    What opportunities for partnerships are there for international operators looking at the German market?
    How can external colleagues navigate the KMU (largely middle sized family business) landscape?
    To what extent are German language skills a requirement?
    Why are German companies interested in longer term over transactional partnerships?
    How is geopolitics affecting the threat landscape in Germany?

    Success in the Energy Sector for EP | Don Sylvest

    Success in the Energy Sector for EP | Don Sylvest

    Is there a more topical industry than Energy today with prices and availability at the forefront of global populations? This week we are delighted to welcome Don Sylvest, former Security Operations Manager at ExxonMobil to ask:
    Why should EP operators start a career in energy?
    What types of activism are an increasing concern for protectors?
    What differences should protectors be aware of when comparing subsets of the energy sector, from upstream to downstream and from travel risk to transmission?
    What evolving threats are facing the energy sector more than others?
    To what extent is insider threat a challenge for today's protector in the energy sector?

    About Don:
    Don started his law enforcement career at the age of 19 as a game warden in south Louisiana. He relocated to Texas in the mid-80s and entered law enforcement as a patrol officer. 20 plus years later Don retired as a Lieutenant over criminal investigations.
    Don moved to Dallas in 2000 and started a career in corporate security. In 2003 Don received his CPP certification. In 2005 while working as security manager for a high-net-worth family Don was approached by ExxonMobil to submit his resume for an executive protection specialist position for the soon to be Chairman/CEO of EM. Since 2005 Don has traveled to over 30 countries and all 50 states providing security to senior executives. Don was also tasked with managing the security driver training program. He provided hands on management of the program in numerous high threat countries. During his tenure he also coordinated security for high profile events to include annual shareholder meetings, Board committee meetings and major sporting events. Before retiring from EM Don was responsible for daily operation management of security at the EM Houston campus. Don spends his time now consulting with other corporations security teams on executive protection and other security related matters.
