Active Shooters: Ready or Not?
Joe Rosner is a nationally recognized expert on workplace violence, personal safety, crime prevention, and self-defense. Thousands of healthcare, real estate, and other business professionals have learned to be safer from crime and violence from his presentations. Joe’s credentials include military, law enforcement, professional bodyguard experience, multiple black belts and growing up on the South Side of Chicago. He has been featured in the Chicago Tribune, Realtor Magazine, and other publications as well as on numerous radio and TV programs. Before the terrorist attacks of 9/11, Joe enjoyed a successful career selling services and technology to larger HR Departments. After 9/11, his focus became to teach people how to be safer from crime and violence. Using his own experiences, training and ongoing research, Joe was able to develop a self-defense program that does not require size, strength, athletic ability or extensive practice. Yet, self-defense is stressed as being like airbags in your car; good to have if needed, but never as a first choice.
His motto is "prepare without the scare”. Fear is replaced with confidence resulting in a motivated team that knows you care.
