HEST 5 Day Course Attendee, April 2022 - Journalist

'The training session, led by Charlie was well presented and clearly delivered, full of practical tips, and didn’t pull the punches on the ‘worst case’ scenarios, while remaining very grounded. I would highly recommend this as a refresher for seasoned travellers or as an introduction to travel safety for novices.'

Alison Tweed, Chief Executive, Book Aid International

'Really enjoyed it, very informative but never felt overloaded and most of all fun!

'Excellent, brilliant hospitality and food'

'Good pace to the lessons and the discussions over dinner were a good idea for emotional trauma chat

Attendees from 2-Day HEST

Thank you for having me at the EBU seminar "Hostile Environment Safety" last week!

The week was extraordinary! What lay not only at the scene - no question Schloss Hexenagger is a show in itself - but above all to the trainer: Inside! So honestly true, so pleasant, focused and professionally competent trainers: Inside I have seldom experienced. Hats off!

It was also a lively exchange among the students. They were colleagues: Inside from Finland, Norway, USA, Netherlands and Germany. Each was able to bring in his experiences and country-specific procedures and we were able to discuss them. I think there is added value for everyone.

So thank you again that I was able to participate in this seminar through the BR - it was very worthwhile and I can recommend it 100%. I now feel much more secure when it comes to my assignments for the BR, whether at home or abroad.

I wanted to feed back that Tatty LOVED the course. She went along in a slightly eyes-rolled, “do I have to do this” sort of mentality… and came back raving and saying how INCREDIBLY useful it was and how everyone should do it. She said how interesting your insights were and what an interesting set of experiences you had had! Given her particular speciality is setting off to climb a mountain in a T shirt and refusing to take advice on warm clothing (or waterproof clothing) EVER I am particularly grateful how struck she was by the advice on hypothermia!!

She is also v proud of her water bottle!

Thank you so much again!

Hi Charlie, Hope you're well. I wrote you, because I wanna to THANK YOU for everything you learnt me and of the EBU HEST course yours colleagues also. I was filming in Cairo from 28 of january to 4 of february and Im still alive because i follow almost everything I learnt in HEST. It was maybe the most heaviest filming that I came thru, we were in the middle of shooting, we were kidnapped, detained and many other "happy" things. THANK YOU Charlie for your training.
Thank you Objective!

Petr Svidensk√Ĺ,

We arranged an online personal safety training course for all our employees to participate in and it completely exceeded our expectations. 

Objective were able to tailor the training to destinations, that as an organisation, we are more likely to travel to and this was so done so in great depth and the information was relevant and inspiring. 

At every stage of the training, Charlie engaged each employee with thought provoking scenarios or questions. The session itself was very interesting.

Beforehand, we spoke regularly with Objective and through the expertise of Charlie we have been able to make more use of the extras which come with our insurance policy, as well as make adaptations to internal policies, processes and documents. Charlie really knows his stuff and it showed.
