Founder: Terry Vaughan
Meet Terry, a distinguished TEDx speaker, body language and personal safety expert, author, and a former British Royal Marines Commando. Terry’s expertise in decoding body language traces back to his childhood, growing up under the heel of a violent father prone to spontaneous bouts of aggression. It wasn’t until his time in the military, where he attended training on Decoding Body Language and Human Behavior, that Terry discovered his natural talent for deciphering nonverbal cues.
After leaving the Commandos, Terry taught a variety of combatives, while at the same time pursuing his passion for studying body language and acquired various certifications such as The Reid Technique of Interviewing and Interrogation, The Reid Technique of Interviewing and Interrogation Advanced, Statement Analysis, Facial Profiling, and Paul Ekmans METT Micro Facial Expressions Training Tool, where he scored expert level during testing.
Today, Terry is highly regarded for his exceptional body language workshops, including D.I.R.T. Dangerous Individual Recognition Training®, Mastering Body Language for Leaders, and Mastering Body Language for Emotional Intelligence.
The knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm Terry brings to his keynotes and workshops are invaluable and are a must-attend for anyone seeking to improve their understanding of nonverbal communication.
In addition, Vaughan is also a past competitor on season 4 of the History Channel’s TOP SHOT, a former television host for the BBC and GUNTV, and the author of the popular book, NOT WITH MY DAUGHTER! A Dad’s Guide to Screening Dates and Boyfriends.
