Lee Wakefield, Sentir Global.
Recently, the CEO of Sentir Global, Lee Wakefield, joined Bret Schanzenbach on the Carlsbad People, Purpose, and Impact Podcast.
Lee’s military service has taken him all over the world, including Norway, Afghanistan, and Iraq. After serving in both the Army and the Marines, Lee decided to start his own security organization in order to equip service members, local governments, schools, churches, and businesses to proactively combat threats by reading nonverbal behavioral cues.
Lee holds training sessions and speaks all over the world. In light of the recent events in Afghanistan, many of the people he trained are being targeted by the Taliban. Now, he is focused on getting them out. In this conversation, Lee talks about his military background, how he utilized his training to build Sentir Global, and what the company is doing to create a safer world.
