Hostage negotiator lunch event
Suzanne Cadisch

Are you listening carefully?

We have a hostage negotiator who wants to improve your leadership skills…

Come along to a special lunch at James Martin Manchester and hear from FBI-trained kidnap specialist Kevin Taylor how the techniques he has honed during his police career can help you in your business.

As former head of the Greater Manchester Police Hostage Negotiation Unit, Kevin is expert at communicating in challenging situations, where the ability to listen properly can be the difference between life and death.

“Negotiating is a transferable leadership skill that can be applied across all sectors,” he says. “Elite level listening is a powerful skill to have in the corporate community.”

Kevin’s lunchtime leadership talk will cover world-class listening and communicating, how to say no, motivating your team, and managing conflict.

Date: Thursday 26 October
Format: Arrival drink and two-course lunch with guest speaker
Price: £35
