“I had two staff attend the Conflict Identification & Response Methodology Program training on the 28th October 2021. My staff said the training was fantastic. Clear information, good interaction with Scott – the facilitator and really helpful guidance. One of the team actually used training points when confronted by an intoxicated client in the office. Highly recommend for anyone who interacts with the community”

“The training was really relevant to the work that I do and loved the de-escalation techniques and talk down process. The facilities were great and it was a really flexible learning environment”

“I found Scott’s training to be highly professional, effective, and it was well-received by all who attended, including 2 of our service executives. I have since recommended Praesidium Risk Services to a client and will continue to recommend their services for this type of training. ”

“We engaged Scott Taylor at Praesidium to do some work with our Management team as well as all Frontline Staff and the feedback from all levels has been overwhelmingly positive. Drawing from diverse areas of study, citing real-life examples and delivered in an engaging and entertaining manner, this program was exactly what we were looking for to raise awareness of real-world challenges we face from both a risk management and customer service perspective”

Michael Ruggeri, HR Manager Windsor RSL

“We engaged Scott Taylor from Praesidium to conduct Advanced Conflict Training sessions for our security personnel and club Management. Scott provided valuable insight into security fundamentals and overall risk assessment. His information was backed up with real life accounts (experience and footage) and we would definitely recommend Scott for this type of training.”
