This one day workshop aims to equip negotiators to deal with the first contact with perpetrators during a crisis.

Imagine yourself answering a phone call from a kidnapper. Do you feel confident enough to deal with such a call effectively? INGOs that are active in high-risk areas form an easy target in an increasing number of kidnappings around the world. Fortunately, kidnappings can be dealt with appropriately when those who receive incoming calls, for instance duty officers, centralists and emergency desk operators, are well prepared and confident enough to handle the first call. Our Crisis Negotiation Workshop equips call handlers with sufficient insights and skills, in order to respond adequately, thus creating the key to a successful outcome.

Your trainer, Heidi A. Nieboer – Martini, is an expert in the field of crisis negotiation and will share her best practices. In addition, there will be role playing and interaction in multiple practical exercises with an actor. From this you will learn and practise skills to handle a first call. A safe learning environment is maintained at all times.
