Something unique occurred at a well-known private training facility in North Carolina. The trainer center focuses on helping military and private contractor personnel hone their skills. They do need exceptional skills to handle their sensitive and dangerous missions. This time, Chevy and the facility’s owners ran a special event for civilian personnel.
James Reese co-founded the facility. He currently serves as CEO of TigerSwan, a private security company. Agreeing to open up a training center to civilians shows the brilliance of James Reese. The one-time Delta Force officer gained a promotional and public relations coup thanks to the event’s publicity. James Reese knows that TigerSwan must sign on new clients to stay in business. Even though TigerSwan might be a highly unique enterprise with specific clientele, the company’s managerial operations must remain true to the laws of economics. That is, TigerSwan can’t thrive without signing up new clients regularly.
James Reese and TigerSwan weren’t the only ones to receive publicity after the event. Chevrolet also received attractive marketing benefits. The auto manufacturer did provide two models of SUVs. The vehicles provided transportation during the simulated missions. The civilians inside the SUVs soon discovered that success or failure often hinges on a vehicle’s reliability. The powerful SUVs were well-suited for the hostage rescue missions. Maybe Chevy received positive word of mouth after the civilian attendees went home.
The civilians left with good impressions and without any need to return to the training facility. They indeed aren’t called upon to handle a dangerous mission in a violent part of the world. The training event may change perceptions about what special operations commandos and private security contractors experience. Granted, not all work occurs in the field. Action that does take place in hotspots can put personnel in extreme danger. Reasons exist why training drills involve live ammunition. TigerSwan contractors can’t go into such environments without the necessary preparation.
Many employees at TigerSwan come from military backgrounds. They already possess many required skills. Experience alone might not be enough. Continual training and sharpening of skills become vital for safety and success. And the TigerSwan contractors do want to be successful.
