Internationally-renowned negotiator to give St Andrews workshop

12th October 2018

An internationally-renowned negotiator who teaches advanced negotiation tactics to law enforcement agencies including the NYPD and the FBI will give a breakfast workshop in St Andrews on November 7.

In the fourth event of St Andrews Business Club’s season, to be held at the Old Course Hotel from 7.30am, retired police negotiator Chief Inspector Andrew B. Brown will deconstruct the negotiation process to allow participants to understand active listening skills and how, when they are skilfully applied empathically, they can give strength to persuasion that ultimately influences behavioural change and successful negotiation.

A negotiator with specialist knowledge and experience in dealing with kidnap for ransom and hostage/crisis incidents, Andrew has been an expert witness to judicial inquiries on the response to hostage taking, including the Lindt Café siege in Sydney in 2014.

A Fellow of the Chartered Management and Security Institutes, he’s developed advanced negotiation and crisis leadership skills for major corporations, public policy and world-class sports coaches.

A Fulbright Alumnus, Andrew continues to teach advanced negotiation tactics to many law enforcement agencies including the NYPD, USMS and the FBI. He is currently the Chief Security Officer of an International NGO specialising in advocacy, accompaniment and education of refugees.

Anyone wanting to learn about this important business topic for business, as well as network, is asked to book via Eventbrite.
