Mastering nonverbal communication: Enhancing situational awareness in security professionals

01 May 2024
Professional Security Officer Conference
Professional Security Officer Live
Led by veteran Royal Marines Commando and Close Protection Officer, Gary Simpson, SPG presents an in-depth exploration into the application of nonverbal communication within the security environment. Drawing from their extensive experience and work with "Special Projects Group", they deliver vital insights into recognising key threat indicators, such as signs of hostility, duress, and deceit. Participants will gain the ability to apply these techniques in their professional roles, maximising their situational awareness. Practical implications in customs, port security, and door supervision are discussed, with a particular focus on identifying hidden weapons. By the end of the presentation, attendees should be equipped with a new set of skills to enhance their performance in security-based roles.
