Over the past seven years, there has been an average of 16.4 "active shooter" incidents per year nationally, that's roughly one every three weeks. A report published by the FBI stated that 60% of active shooter incidents were over before police could arrive on the scene. "Even when law enforcement was present or able to respond within minutes, civilians often had to make life and death decisions, and, therefore, should be engaged in training and discussions they may face."

This session will focus on survival training to survive in an active shooter event. The focus is on survival mindset, situation awareness and emotional readiness and is followed by "Run, Hide, Fight" and when to apply the appropriate tactics for this type of event. The conclusion is discussing a hostage situation, and how it differs from an active shooter scenario and what to expect from law enforcement.

Although it has some of the world's finest technologies, among developed nations, the US has the shortest life expectancy, the highest infant mortality, and the lowest public approval of its health care system.  It is the only developed nation lacking universal health care.  Despite these shortcomings, the US spends about twice as much per capita on health care as any other nation on earth.  These facts are easy to verify, and many books and thousands of journal articles attest to them.  But 30 years of congressional debate on health care reforms has never addressed the fundamental reasons for this poor performance or how to catch up with other nations.  This is NOT a party issue.  Democrats and Republicans have both avoided discussing these facts honestly and proposing solutions to the underlying problems.  We have the world's most costly and inefficient healthcare system - one that wastes between 1.0 and 2.4 trillion dollars every year while providing worse results than other nations.

This talk will discuss how the system came to be that way and what needs to change if we want to improve care and reduce costs.

In Portland today, the job market is filled with entry level positions, positions which require little to no experience, and they are being filled by people with multicultural backgrounds, immigrants, people with disabilities, and veterans. What this means is that local companies are facing a crisis of culture. How can you possibly connect with, and embrace the differences of such a diverse work force? The answer is inclusion, and strong leadership. Troy Rulmyr, a Business Outreach Specialist in the Portland Metro area will walk you through this process, and explain how this is easier to achieve than might be believed.
