Celebrities have a unique dynamic in the Executive Protection equation. In this course, find out how every element of traditional protection work is scaled and “tweaked” to provide the most effective security plan that protects the client from physical harm and safeguards the client’s image. Elijah Shaw teaches this celebrity protection training course from a background of providing close protection for high-profile clients for over twenty years. The celebrity protection training course is taught interactively between lecture points and applications of teaching points based on Elijah’s extensive first-hand experience.
Behavioral Intelligence is the art and science of identifying the precursors of assault and developing how to intervene preemptively. This Behavioral Intelligence course is a Predator Hunter program for close protection agents. The search for Clues to Dangerousness in the crowd relies on a different set of skills than those of an Arms-Length Agent. Beginning with assessing Normalcy, the student can identify breaks in the Norm based on acute observation of Crowd Behavior and individuals acting within it. The skills emphasized here are those that identify the Precursors to Assault and the different strategies of Preemptive Intervention.
