A letter from the Chief Executive Officer.
As we enter the 21st Century, the United States and its Allies face a world that has been cast into chaos. International Security was a term used largely to refer to diplomatic and military activities in the global arena: to unilateral and multilateral efforts to prevent inter-state and regional conflicts. Today the concept has been broadened to embrace a host of transnational and often interconnected issues. The more globalization takes hold on the world, the more these issues come to the fore and the more leading organizations within the International Community require the expertise of commercial entities such as The Life On Point Consultants to help address these challenges.
This is because in order to remain streamlined, governments protecting their national security interests overseas, International Government entities spearheading peacekeeping initiatives and Non-Governmental-Organizations involved in aid initiatives increasingly call on Life On Point Consultants to help protect their assets and enable their business in difficult operating environments. With our talent, commitment and resourcefulness, we allow our clients the freedom to concentrate on the core task at hand.
That is the Life On Point Consultants...Every Mission...Every Time.
