We help our clients manage human risks and take care of their most essential resource – the employees.
Human Advisor Group ApS is a Danish consulting company. Our specialty is helping our clients deal with human risks in a wide variety of industries and contexts.
Our core is a basic understanding of how humans act, motivate, and dealt with in practice.
We use this knowledge in two general contexts:
- In a security context, in which we provide security counseling and training to companies who require special attention for employees – for instance, while traveling abroad or because the company is at risk of critical incidents occurring (e.g., robbery or kidnapping).
- In a business context, we also function as negotiation advisors in M&A cases or teach operational body language analysis and lie detection.
In early 2011 Michael Sjøberg started Human Advisor Group. Michael had, at that time, founded The Danish Defence concept of hostage survival and additionally worked as an independent advisor specializing in handling hostage situations. It quickly became clear that there was a strong need from Danish companies – both private and public – to receive advice on how to manage these complex crises.
We also learned that the capabilities used in solving hostage situations could benefit others in slightly more civilized contexts. Because of that, in addition to our security advice, we also teach negotiation techniques and lie detection – for lawyers, judges, HR people, and others.
We are currently three employees, but also have four freelance consultants, which we use regularly when needed. Our strength is our people. Most of our consultants have backgrounds in The Danish Defence, in which they worked with complex risk and conflict management.
