SPYSCAPE has created a powerful new agency that offers access to elite intelligence professionals (from CIA, FBI, KGB, Mossad, and more) to private citizens and organizations. SPYEX provides unrivaled access to experts, trusted by world leaders, to train corporate employees, speak at events, and consult on key business initiatives and film / TV projects.
Businesses looking for an edge can tap the expertise of individuals who have worked at the highest levels of security clearance and problem-solved in the most critical arenas in the world. SPYEX expertise is available to businesses seeking to improve the bottom line, mitigate risk, protect business travelers, prepare employees for emergencies, and more.
“This is about results, intelligence, and Special Ops best practices that translate very effectively to winning in business,” said SPYEX expert Bob Dougherty, an ex-CIA operations officer who trains US Army Green Berets and Navy SEALs, as well as C-suite executives.
The SPYEX network features high-performing leaders with backgrounds in secret intelligence, investigative law enforcement, and more. The roster also includes hackers and cybersecurity professionals with decades of experience in breaching target organizations and defending against cyber threats, as well as investigative journalists, undercover filmmakers, and historians. Some of SPYEX’s experts cannot be disclosed publicly but can be introduced to clients as appropriate.
“For any kind of leader or team builder, it is about genuinely knowing your people and whether or not they are truly motivated,” said Lena Sisco, a former Naval intelligence officer who is an expert in interviewing, interrogation, and deception detection.
Sisco believes her training applies to everyone in sales: “If you want to know if someone is genuinely interested in becoming a stakeholder, or an investor, or a true buyer - and knowing their level of sincerity when they tell you they are interested in buying ‘X’ - then use my techniques.”
Through SPYEX, the private sector now has access to some of the most extraordinary trainers on the planet, individuals with mind-blowing and motivating real-world stories to share including:
- the senior adviser at the CIA’s National Counterterrorism Center who put Osama bin Laden on the CIA’s radar;
- a former KGB officer who worked with US counterintelligence for 10 years;
- the former CIA chief learning officer and head of CIA University: a leading educator on how to recruit talent, manage through change and crisis, and optimize leadership effectiveness;
- the CIA undercover and special ops classified trainer who developed and executed high-profile terrorist captures;
- an undercover FBI operative and cybersecurity authority who led the capture of notorious spy Robert Hanssen; and
- the African-American CIA veteran and former head of the Agency’s training facility who now serves as COO of a strategic risk and crisis management firm, and as a creative consultant for film and television.
Additionally, SPYEX is bringing intelligence-derived, team-building products to the corporate market, including activities designed to improve and cultivate collaboration and communication, sales effectiveness, rapport development, outside-the-box strategizing, and improved leadership and people management.
CIA veteran Bob Dougherty helps seasoned C-suite executives elevate their leadership skills and strategic vision with his ‘Executive Warrior’ training retreat, an intense, highly interactive experience that affords participants top-tier training modeled on highly specialized CIA and Special Operations Forces training. Trainees walk away with deepened confidence in their ability to handle threats in the business world, including criminal activity, counterintelligence threats, corporate espionage, workplace violence, and health issues.
Dougherty’s ‘Selling like a World-Class Spy’ is built on the tenet that a CIA operations officer persuading a foreign national to commit espionage against his/her country is involved in the ultimate, high-stakes sales pitch. Tailorable for corporate employees of all levels, it’s an eye-opening training opportunity for even the most experienced business development or marketing executives. It also makes for an outstanding incentive reward experience for top performers.
Whether the event is a gathering of enterprise tech clients, a global healthcare conference, finance and insurance incentive winners, or a consumer trade show crowd, event hosts now have access to an unparalleled collection of speakers, panelists, and storytellers through SPYEX.
Motivational and inspirational talks, insight into the highest levels of achievements in AI, machine learning, and cybersecurity - the list of expertise and insight available through SPYEX is broad, relevant, and exceptionally cool. Meet and greets, book signings, and virtual guest appearances at company meetings are also available.
SPYEX, the first talent agency of its kind, offers unrivaled access to leaders from the world's top agencies and institutions, with a roster of experts who can improve almost any area of business.
As SPYEX expert and former KGB officer Jack Barsky put it: “When I am presenting, nobody checks their cell phones.”
