Jenny Radcliffe

Jenny Radcliffe—aka “The People Hacker”—is a force to be reckoned with. She can diffuse a crisis situation, talk her way into a secure building, and spot a psychopath at a hundred paces. She has been called a mind reader and a “human lie detector,” and likened to a Jedi Knight. In reality, she is an expert in social engineering (the human element of security), negotiation, persuasion and influence, and non-verbal communication, and deception—using her skills to help clients ranging from global corporations and law enforcement organisations to poker players, politicians, and the security industry.
