Richard Mullender - the hostage negotiator!
The 3 words that are continually used to describe Richard’s training . . .
After military service and time in the private sector, Richard Mullender joined the Metropolitan police.
He worked as a detective investigating serious crimes. Then one life-changing day he trained to become a hostage negotiator.
His skills were so well regarded that he was appointed Lead Trainer at Scotland Yard’s National Hostage and Crisis Negotiation Unit and although he is not at liberty to expose his full activities in defence of British subjects abroad, he was part of the team that negotiated the high-profile release of three UN workers held hostage by the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2004.
Life or Death Listening Training
In the decade since leaving the police, Richard has established his own independent consultancy where his skills have been in high demand with law enforcement agencies, international government bodies, as well as coaching within the public, private and educational sectors.
