Brain Searcy will be our Guest on March 3rd
on Leadership and Situational Awareness
Brian Searcy President – Paratus Group
USAF Retired Commander + Combat Veteran
Creator of "Left of Bang Situational Training"
Brian Searcy is a fellow member of The C-Suite Network and will be joining us to talk about Leadership and Situational Awareness. After leaving a long, decorated career in the U.S. Air Force, Brian used to do active shooter training for school districts and realized he needed to prevent incidents rather than merely teach people how to respond. It starts with Leadership and Situational Awareness and the reach of his work extends so far beyond an active shooter. Imagine if you could be more aware of threats around workplace violence, bullying or mental health. What about human trafficking, spousal abuse, alcoholism. Even better yet, what if you knew what to do to prevent bad things from happening once you were aware. His work extends far and wide and ties heavily into the Social Awareness component of Emotional Intelligence.
Brian Searcy is the President of The Paratus Group. His vision is to “Redefine How Safety is Learned” to make Schools, churches, the workplace, and our communities as safe as possible. His unique experience and expertise have revolutionized how situational awareness is trained and learned allowing the opportunity for every single member of our communities, the true first responders, to be “Prepared to Survive.”
Following a decorated senior leadership career in the USAF as a commander and combat veteran, Brian transitioned into executive roles as a business entrepreneur, writer, publisher and public speaker.
