w/ Avi Hakhamanesh, Pam Lester, Gary Noesner
Join us for insights from Gary Noesner, a 30-year veteran of the FBI, who served as the first Chief of the FBI's Crisis Negotiation Unit, Critical Incident Response Group in the Bureau’s history. He also served as the lead hostage negotiator during the first half of the siege in Waco, Tx. His book Stalling for Time, My life as an FBI Hostage Negotiator became the framework for the Netflix mini-series WACO. During his tenure at the FBI, Gary has negotiated and investigated some of the most high profile hostage situations, including Middle East hijackings, prison riots, militia standoffs, terrorist embassy takeovers, airplane hijackings, and kidnappings. He will be sharing his personal experiences and lessons from the field about building trust in order to move from conflict to cooperation.
