Owens, Jeffrey B.

Growing up in Hawaii’s multi-cultural environment gifted Jeff with the ability to develop rapport with the diverse audiences he presents to.  Working his way up from “street cop” to being a founding member of Hawaii’s first Hostage/Crisis Negotiation team and attaining the rank of Major on the Command Staff of the Honolulu Police Department he gained real-world experience in dealing with people, crisis, and leading organizations.

After retiring from the HPD Jeff started Transcend Inc., a training and consulting company which he put on hold when asked by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to lead a team of investigators to locate and reunite children and families in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  Upon his return to Hawaii he was recruited by a global corporation to lead their struggling Pacific Region operations back to success.  After accomplishing the turn-around and mentoring his replacement he went back to his own business and built Transcend Inc to become one of Hawaii’s premier training and consulting companies.  Jeff is a Board Certified Threat Manager (CTM) by the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals, an elite designation earned by those recognized as the “best of the best” in the field of threat assessment and management.  These experiences give him a keen understanding of people, communication, leadership, and organizations.

Drawing on years of experience to illustrate his presentations, Jeff provides practical knowledge verbally illustrated with relevant, often humorous and always entertaining real-life examples.

Jeff’s real-world experience and communication skills give him unique and unmatched qualifications to provide a dynamic, entertaining, and useful presentation to your convention, conference, organization or meeting.
