Today, we look back at “big picture” events of 2017 and forward to risks that may not be on people’s radar for 2018 with 4-time guest of the podcast Daniel Wagner. Those of you who have caught my previous episodes with Daniel know that he is a geo-political risk expert, CEO of Country Risk Solutions, regular media commentator, and author of many articles and books – most recently “Virtual Terror”.

Daniel’s views are often contrarian and always insightful. We talk US politics, climate change, the Middle East, North Korea, China, the global economy and lots more!

What can we learn about ocean animals that can tell us about the environment? What happens to birds when they take their physiologies to their limits? How close are we to seeing a sub-two hour marathon?

This is a somewhat different episode of the podcast in which I talk to three speakers from this year’s Humanature conference. The conference brings together experts from a number of fields to explore the links between extreme life and human performance and health.

I was fortunate enough to have three short conversations with:

Dr. Andreas Fahlman about the physiology of marine animals and what that means for the health of our environment;

 

 

Dr. Carl Soulsbury about birds “exercising” to their limits and beyond;

 

Dr. Andrew Jones about his work on Nike’s bold recent effort to crack the sub-two hour marathon.

 

These were all short conversations that took place in London’s Natural History Museum.

How does Israel’s approach to public security differ from that of the USA and Western Europe? What can we learn? Today, we explore public security, terrorism, body language, mindset and more.

My guest is Eldor Arbel. Eldor is the CEO of Arbel Consulting and Training. He brings a unique perspective to security – “security from the inside out”. This isn’t surprising considering Eldor is an Israeli national living in London, spend four years in the Israeli Defence Forces and has worked for many years in the private security industry in the country. Israel of course, has had to deal with terrorism for decades.

I was interested in Eldor’s take on how countries like the UK and USA deal with terrorism and security. We get into this (and if you follow the podcast you know I thinke that we overestimate the chances of a terror attack). However, this is a conversation about much more than this we get into:

  • Eldor’s time in the Israeli Defence Forces;
  • The private security sector in Israel;
  • Terrorism and other types of security threats;
  • Eldor’s security philosophy, including:
    • Mindset;
    • Normalcy bias;
    • Behaviour detection;
    • Body language;
  • Security versus freedom;
  • The training AC&T offers, including the very interesting “Confined Spaces Training”
  • Loads more!
