This Funzing Experience:
What is it like to survive an atrocity? What was going on in their heads? How can you prevent a violent crime happening to you? In this potentially life-saving talk, Jennifer will share the stories of survivors from extreme incidents, she will also discuss the accounts of security experts and crime prevention strategies.

*A portion of ticket sales will be donated to victim support charities.

You will hear stories from those who survived mass shootings and escaped serial killers and have decided to share their experience with the world. What do they think they did which meant they survived?

You will learn specific ways to protect yourself, including spotting danger signs early and how to safely deal with strangers trying to enter your house or how to identify the source of anonymous threats.

This talk will be a celebration of human intuition, capability and resilience, designed to empower those for who fear of violent crime is a concern.
