I’ve been here listening and responding to your phone calls, emails, engagements, attending conferences, upgrading skills, delivering speeches, volunteering my time to passionate causes.  Staying energetic and informed. Are you still energetic and informed? All of those plans and procedures you created, are they still energetic and informed?  Are all of your colleagues that will […]

Now there’s a question I get asked a lot.  Reasonable question.  Honestly asked.  Pure curiosity.  Not always the easiest to answer. So how have I answered that question in the past?  I’ve tried the formal route: “I’m a consultant that specializes in Security Management, Risk Management and Emergency Management”  Usually followed by the next question […]

Pretty hefty title to the article.  So what does it mean?  Let first start by tearing it apart.

So I’m fortunate enough to get to do some traveling with my work and get to see many an interesting place, work with incredibly passionate and hard working individuals for several large organizations and institutions.

So I’m going to do a lot in this post to “protect the innocent” or is the uninformed, but if I get to descriptive, you’re intelligent people you might just figure out where I was.
