The Beach Chamber's next IdeaWorks quarterly Lunch & Learn workshop will be held on Wednesday, April 24 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM at Gulf Coast State College's Dean's Private Dining Room.  Greg May from Gulf Coast State College will present "Personal Awareness and Self-Defense in the Workplace."  The event is presented by Southwest Airlines

May served with the Panama City Beach Police Department since 1986, both full time and reserve.  As Public Safety Training Coordinator at Gulf Coast State College, he currently teaches courses in Public Safety Professional Advanced Training, Professional Development for Business Professionals, and Community Personal Safety Enhancement Training. 

This interactive training session will provide insight, skills and best management practices for individuals, business owners, and companies on personal safety in the workplace. The presentation will cover crimes against people and property, types of suspects, mental preparation, the basic rules of survival, tools available to survive the disturbance, and the law enforcement response.

As always, the Beach Chamber will raffle off one Southwest Airlines round-trip ticket at this workshop.
