Remaining Lectures:Single Tickets $45.00 each.



Next Lecture: Clint Van Zandt: The Face of 21st Century Terrorism. April 8 & 9, 2015

Former FBI hostage negotiator and profiler, Clint Van Zandt, takes us deep into the mind and motivation of criminals and terrorists, from 11th century assassins, thru kamikazi pilots, and street criminals, to the terrorists of today. In his 25 years at the FBI, he served as supervisor with the agency's internationally respected Behavioral Science Unit  and managed the FBI's Major Case/Crisis Management Program. He personally negotiated with Branch Davidian cult leader David Koresh in Waco, Texas, negotiated release of hostages held by prison rioters and kidnap victims held by South American guerrillas and terrorists in the Philippines. He correctly profiled Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh and led the analytical team that helped to identify the "Unabomber". As a television and radio commentator, Van Zandt has made more appearances than any other FBI agent in history. He is the author of "Facing Down Evil, Life on the Edge as an FBI Hostage Negotiator". His presentations are at times humorous. He brings his audiences valuable insights in better understanding human behaviour.
