Safeguarding NYC: Public-Private Partnerships at the New York Stock Exchange

On Thursday, January 15, 2014, I addressed public and private sector professionals from throughout the New York City region at the New York Stock Exchange. The title of today's presentation was Leadership Principles: Crisis Planning, Community Partnerships, Violence Prevention.

This program followed my four previous presentations to safeguard New York City for museums, hospitals, properties and fire safety professionals. I have also conducted these programs for law enforcement, facilities, communities and schools throughout the United States including a coalition of New Jersey prosecutors noted below.

As with previous NYC and crisis management presentations, today's program was designed to assist those responsible with securing the city with the necessary leadership tools and partnerships to implement crisis management and violence prevention initiatives.

Attendees today included the FBI, NYPD, FDNY, private security professionals and property managers from throughout the region. It was made possible through the First Precinct Financial Area Security Council in partnership with the NYPD and through the courtesy of the New York Stock Exchange who hosted the event.

On behalf of the First Precinct Financial Area Security Council, I would like to thank you for being our guest speaker at our January 15th 2014, meeting at the New York Stock Exchange. Even though our membership is made up of law enforcement and security professionals who deal with the safety and security of people and property daily, your insight and the presentation of your Power Point was a real eye opener. It was a true reminder that we must continue to be diligent...

New York City Crisis Planning...May 22, 2013 Blog

On Wednesday, May 22, 2013, I delivered a keynote titled Protecting People and Property: Leadership, Vigilance, Collaboration at the request of the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) Greater New York Chapter. The presentation was for property managers of New York City facilities. IREM is an international community of real estate managers dedicated to ethical business practices...and promoting superior management through education and information sharing.

Complimenting IREM's noble mission, the event was held at The Union League Club in New York City. This historic club was founded in 1863 to help preserve the Union during the Civil War. It has a record of distinguished service to America with also assisting to erect the Statue of Liberty and the Lincoln Monument in Union Square.

Your passion and commitment to the safety and well being of others was evident during your keynote address, 'Protecting People and Property: Leadership, Vigilance, Collaboration.' As property managers, each of us is responsible for the lives of hundreds, if not thousands of residents. We grapple each day with the importance of their safety and security. This great responsibility, combined with critical emergency planning, leaves all of us feeling the burden of grave responsibility. Your speech, however, gave each of us a new outlook on the importance of our mission, and the necessary diligence required during disaster preparation. The feedback we received about your talk was overwhelmingly positive and I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to speak to our group.
IREM Greater New York Chapter President

As with my other recent New York City keynotes, the focus was to encourage ethical leadership and sound crisis planning practices to prevent, alleviate, prepare, respond and recover from man-made and natural disasters:

Crisis Possibilities for Museums, Libraries and Cultural Properties: Prevention, Preparedness, Response, Recovery

On Thursday, May 16, 2013, I delivered a presentation at MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art, in New York City. It was titled Crisis Possibilities for Museums, Libraries and Cultural Properties: Prevention, Preparedness, Response, Recovery.

As expected, I have received nothing but positive responses from those in attendance. I am certain that they never received the volume of information that you provided concerning the challenges confronted by security directors working in today's cultural institutions. It must have been reassuring to know that someone with your credentials truly understands the problems that they face in their endeavors to manage an effective security program.
Co-Chairman, Museum, Library & Cultural Property Protection Committee, ASIS International NYC Chapter

The presentation was delivered at the request of the Museum, Library & Cultural Property Protection Committee of ASIS International's New York City Chapter. NYPD officials and security management professionals from throughout New York City attended including:

  • Central Park Zoo
  • Museum of the Moving Image
  • MoMA
  • Metropolitan Museum of Art
  • The Studio Museum
  • Rubin Museum of Art
  • Whitney Museum of American Art
  • New York Historical Society
  • New York Botanical Garden
  • Brooklyn Children's Museum

    The goal of the presentation was to encourage ethical leadership, vigilance and collaboration as critical to safeguarding people, property, information and assets. It complimented recent crisis management presentations including:

    Crisis Management Leadership: New York City Fire Safety Director's

    At the request of the Fire Safety Director's Association of Greater New York, I delivered a presentation on March 5, 2013 at One Penn Plaza in New York City. It was for professionals responsible for safety and security at major facilities throughout New York City.

    The title, Crisis Management Leadership Principles, was delivered to 80 corporate safety representatives and New York fire officials. As highlighted in my presentation, crisis management is critical to society and those dedicated to its principles are to be commended for their efforts to protecting life and property.

    On behalf of the Fire Safety Directors Association (FSDA) of Greater New York, we would like to thank you for your presentation on “Crisis Management Leadership Principles” at our monthly forum. Your lecture on this relative subject matter was very well received by the membership. Our life safety role’s in many of these New York City high-rise buildings has drastically changed since September 11, 2001. Your words spoke volumes as to what we do on a daily basis, making sure everyone goes home safely. Please accept letter as a small token of our gratitude for all you do to make people more conscious of their own situational awareness and safety. FSDA Chairman

    Crisis Management Leadership Principles for Hospital Security Professionals and Safe Schools

    Crisis Management initiatives that cover issues of mitigation & prevention, preparedness, response and recovery is critical to security professionals.

    On Tuesday, December 4, 2012, I delivered a keynote titled Crisis Management Leadership Principles for Hospital Security Professionals from throughout New York City at Rockefeller University in New York City at the request of the Metropolitan Healthcare Security/Safety Directors Association, Inc.

    Our members were impressed by the depth of your knowledge and your ability to not only convey the challenges that security professionals are facing in this ever changing world, but to inspire them to have the moral courage to always do the right thing and face the consequences head on. You are a generous and inspiring speaker.
    Metropolitan Healthcare Security/Safety Directors Association, Inc., President

    As with my many crisis management initiatives, such as the one noted below for the Southern New Jersey Prosecutors, it was conducted to assist with professional development so important to the security profession.

    Prosecutors of southern New Jersey held their conference on August 12, 2010 at Washington Township High School in Sewell, New Jersey with over 300 law enforcement, school and community officials attending.

    As a featured speaker, I was privileged to deliver a 60 minute presentation titled Transforming Our Schools: Reawakening the Heart of the Nation. The presentation integrated elements of school security, character education, academic achievement and community collaboration so vital to our schools and to the future of our nation. The metaphor of a head on collision with the culture of violence and crisis of character was utilized as well as critical New Jersey compliance issues. These included the Commissioner of Education School Administrator Procedures of Responding to Critical Incidents and Model School Security Policies:

    • Active Shooter Response Procedures
    • Bomb Threat Response Procedures
    • Evacuation Procedures
    • School Lockdown Procedures
    • Public Information Procedures

    The School Security Drill Guide for the State of New Jersey was also discussed since beginning November 1, 2010 all New Jersey schools must comply with various security drills aside from fire drills.

    Critical documents from the U.S. Department of Education, Secret Service and FBI on crisis planning, early warning signs, safeguarding our students, threat assessments, character education and violence prevention were also addressed. Attendees were encouraged to work collaboratively and to implement programs through professional development, security vulnerability assessments and initiatives that encompass all elements of the community.

    The presentation was complimented with copies of my newest book Listen To Their Cries which was sponsored for all attendees through the generosity of the prosecutors as facilitated by the leadership of Prosecutor Dalton. As with all of my presentations, it concluded with a tribute to the American Military.

    The prosecutors are to be commended for their practical response to school security through this conference. It is an event highly recommended and mission critical to our nation and will hopefully be imitated through the leadership of prosecutors throughout the nation.

    Testimonial The important message you provided to over three hundred law enforcement and school officials regarding character and community will not easily be forgotten. By illustrating how deeply held American values of character and community are the cornerstone of our work, both law enforcement and school officials can apply these principles in our daily lives…your message will help each one of the attendees perform their duties in a cooperative, collaborative manner.
