TopicKidnap, Threatened Execution and Communication:
How to handle pressure and stress, build relationships and communicate effectively
OverviewChris Moon is one of the few Westerners to have survived abduction and threatened execution by Khmer Rouge guerrilla's in Cambodia, negotiating his own release and that of two colleagues during an ordeal of threatened execution. He's subsequently become friends with the Khmer Rouge commander who made the decision not to execute him. Chris shares his remarkable story and his learning. After making a documentary with Discovery as part of the I Shouldn't be Alive series and speaking with the people who held him Chris understands how being able to handle pressure and stress and build relationships saved their lives. It's not just how we communicate, but who we are and how we behave that makes the difference. After hearing the story and learning the principles participants get an opportunity to practice and develop their skills in a similar, but safe situation in a role-play scenario.
