Former DCI David Beck has published Lip Service in Blue where he explores the discipline of hostage negotiations and reflects upon his own experiences. He is donating all profits to Hostage UK (which is a working name of Hostage International), for which we are very grateful.
As a negotiator, David was the lead for the Afghan Airways hijack at Stanstead airport in 2000 and a negotiation advisor for the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. David shared his experience and skills with others in the discipline by creating training programmes which were used in the UK and beyond.
Lip Service covers active listening skills, influencing techniques and the history of negotiation in the UK. It is brought to life by his reflections on his real-life experiences.
