Meet History Channel Host of "Off the Grid: Million Dollar Manhunt" Kevin Reeve at Adobe HQ!
Wednesday, July 11, 2012 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM (PDT)
San Jose, United States
Adobe Toastmasters proudly presents Kevin Reeve, host of the History Channel's Million Dollar Manhunt.
Kevin is founder/director of OnPoint Tactical Tracking School, an organization that has trained the Navy SEALs, US Army Rangers, Federal law enforcement professionals and numerous State/Municipal elite police teams on topics ranging from tracking fugitives, survival, evasion and urban operations.
In addition, Kevin has served as consultant to Bencio Del Toro in the 2003 movie The Hunted, and featured as a subject matter expert in the History Channel's After Armageddon.
He will be teaching a course on Urban Escape and Evasion in San Jose, where attendees are put through an intensive course on how to survive a kidnapping, culminating in the class's third day "final" where the students put their recently-acquired skills to the test: hooded, handcuffed, stripped of their cellphones/wallets and hunted by Kevin's team in a live-fire excercise at an undisclosed location in the Bay Area.
Longtime Adobe Toastmasters Officer Kai Chang took the Urban Escape and Evasion course in 2010 and wrote about his experience as a blog entry.
For his talk at Adobe, Kevin will focus on digital and personal security in a Panopticon Society, and how our actions (financial, movement, purchases) are tracked and monitiored by both silent watchers employed by government and private organizations. Kevin will discuss tactics to protect ones privacy and safety from criminals and predators as well as sharing his unique perspective gained from his experience teaching survival skills to the world's most elite soldiers/operators.
Light refreshments will be served, and there will be opportunities for Q&A near the end of Kevin's talk.
Adobe Employees/Toastmasters members have priority registration and a limited number of seats are available on a first-come-first-served basis to the general public.
Adobe employees and Contractors unable to make it to the physical event may connect to one of a limited number of Adobe Connect feeds we will be broadcasting internally of Kevin's talk.
Please RSVP and you will be contacted on Weds morning about details.
