"I met Nina Delgadillo when I was Chief of Public Affairs at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and she was the Public Information Officer for the Sacramento Field Division. Nina demonstrated maturity, sound judgment, and ability to think outside the box and was always responsive, well prepared, confident, and respectful of her colleagues in the media. When before the public, she was always aware that she was the face and voice of ATF. Nina was a consummate professional, she gave me the opportunity to demonstrate my experience, skills, and talents when I was new to my position."

"Don't miss the opportunity to advance or even begin your behavioral intervention and violence risk assessment training with Brian Van Brunt. The training sessions are live, interactive, and best practice based. For some participants who might normally be reticent to ask questions in person, the virtual format may even provide more opportunities for interaction and questions/discussions. Brian remains approachable, compassionate and cares deeply about the important work each of us is doing."

Brian has this amazing way of creating a safe and comfortable learning environment despite the training topic.

"As a special agent, Nina Degadillo specialized in investigating bombing and arson incidents throughout the United States, the majority of which resulted in successful prosecutions. Nina has the unique ability to earn trust when interacting with the media, and more importantly, receive trust in return from those news organizations. She was a top media spokesperson for ATF who was responsive, transparent, and knowledgeable. Throughout her career Nina has been steadfast in her proactive support of diversity and inclusion within ATF, specifically within the LGBTQ community, women in law enforcement and various minority groups. Nina was a pioneer in her support of women’s issues and developing recommendations to insure inclusion to agency senior executives."

"Brian Van Brunt was the keynote speaker at the Texas School Counseling Association conference. His presentation on threat assessment provided over 2,000 school counselors with timely, relevant information in a way that was engaging and left our audience wanting more. We had many members ask to have him back for a longer, more in-depth. I highly recommend Brian as a keynote speaker for any association similar to ours — he did a fabulous job! Social media and the conference was buzzing afterward!"

"Working with Nina Delgadillo as a safety and security consultant means that you can sleep at night knowing she is on the job. Nina’s teaching style is engaging, charismatic and her Federal Law Enforcement experience as an investigator and PIO has poised her to be a tenacious, methodical investigator, as exemplified by her role in the Unibomber case. She commands respect when she speaks, whether in a room of Police Chiefs, front line police officers or to the community. Nina was also involved in Kopsnkids, bringing her entire family to volunteer at the annual weeklong summer camp that provided an opportunity for at risk children to interact with Law Enforcement professionals."

"It was a tremendous institutional step for the American University of Beirut (AUB) to bring an expert from the U.S. to Lebanon to certify our new Equity & Title IX network — and critical that we get it right. Brian Van Brunt was a perfect choice. A phenomenal listener and astute guide, he was able to sustain interest and engage a diverse group of faculty and key administrators from across campus for nearly three days, a rather remarkable feat in itself. Brian deftly navigated the complexity of the context and institutional culture, and facilitated thoughtful discussions that allowed participants to benefit from the experiences and expertise of colleagues. In the words of one, 'I learned in the training to think deeply about the process."
