Safety, wellness and resilience expert Lance Burdett tours rural New Zealand.

Wednesday, April 03, 2019

Author: Terri Anderson

It’s a long way from negotiating with hostage-takers to touring rural New Zealand, but that’s where Lance Burdett’s career path has gone so far. He’s about to embark on a tour of rural South Island thanks to a series of talks put together by New Zealand’s local Rural Support Trusts and the Ministry for Primary Industries.

Founder of Warn International, Lance has moved from working for police and training with the FBI to dedicating himself to spreading tips and techniques for people to handle difficult situations by understanding what goes on in people’s brains – starting with their own.
