    Keynote Speaker

    The International Biometrics Association (IBA) and NEC are pleased to announce that internationally known speaker, writer and law enforcement trainer Dave ("JD Buck Savage") Smith will be the featured keynote speaker on Monday, August 26.

    Dave will present key aspects of his signature course The Winning Mind™ which is considered one of the most remarkable training experiences for law enforcement personnel.

    Dave will examine the key components of an individual's peak performance, including who survives and why, and how optimism, risk and bureaucracy play different roles in our personal and professional lives. He will discuss how individuals and organizations can make themselves truly resilient to help everyone, regardless of their experience to optimize their odds of winning any confrontation.

    Some example discussion topics include:
    • What makes someone a "winner?"
    • Who survives and why?
    • What is true "optimism?"
    • The "Not Today" mindset, every day, on every shift
    • The role of "Warrior Ethos" in all aspects of law enforcement

    Please join us in welcoming Dave Smith as our keynote speaker on August 26.
