Panel Discussion about Counter Terrorism in London – June 2019 9. Juni 2019

Filed under: News — Judith Grohmann @ 18:11

On 4th of June 2019 I was in England to present my latest book ‚Fighting the War on Terror at the Austrian Cultural Forum London. With great pleasure, I was on the podium with a distinguished panel of experts for a Talk about the work of Counter-Terrorism units around the Globe and of course, about my book. Many thanks to BBC Security-Correspondent Gordon Corera, Counter-Terrorism-expert Richard Barrett and Cambridge University-Professor Neil Kent who made this Evening in London possible. I also would like to thank all the guests who joined this Evening. It was a great pleasure to discuss with you – for several hours – the topics of Security, Counter-Terrorism, Prevention and the numerous adventures I had, when I did this book with the units in the 16 countries of this World.

 

This book means a lot to me. I experienced so much during the writing process and for that, I would like to thank you – Commanders and members of the Units – for your contributions to make this book possible. I think that we did a good job! The book has been translated into several languages and is a very well received. Especially in England! It has been dedicated to the actor Kevin Spacey who played in the Movie „The Negotiator“ and who inspired me to write this book. Spacey is also an inspiration for numerous members of the Counter terrorism-units worldwide because of this Movie.

Many thanks to the Director of the Austrian Cultural Forum Katalin-Tünde Huber and to her whole Team in London who made this Evening possible!

Filed under: News — Judith Grohmann @ 18:40

 

Le Lycée Français de Vienne m’a invitée à participer comme intervenante au „Forum des Métiers 2019“. Il s’agit d‘ une journée destinée aux élèves de classe de 1ère – donc aux élèves qui font leur Baccalauréat en un an – pour se familiariser avec les nombreux parcours de formation et de rencontrer des professionnels de divers domaines. Cette journée permet aux élèves de poser plein de questions … 🏃🏃🏃L’objectif est de simplifier l’orientation professionnelle par des échanges entre les jeunes et 60 professionnels.

J’étais l’un des professionnels …
#JournalisteAuteure🌞

Et j‘ ai eu la grande joie de discuter avec Elena, Sophie, Matthew, Zoé, Sabrina-Paula, Lara et pleins d’autres élèves intéressés par mon métier de journaliste, d‘ auteure et de conférencière… Je leur ai expliqué que au final, il fallait s’intéresser à tout dans la vie. C´est á dire : à la politique, à l´économie, aux langues, au sport, à la culture,…etc…  Voilà ce que mes profs au Lycée m´ont appris. C´est ainsi que des discussions fructueuses ont eu lieu ce mercredi et – comme les années précédentes – les élèves ont été impressionnés par mes récits… 😉

The Bavarian network „Europe after work“ invited me to talk about Austria, its political partys, the winner of the last elections to the Chancellor 31year old Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz, his tactics and the possibilities of the future coalitions in Austria. But also what the European Union can expect from him. 150 guests came to The Information Office of the European Parliament and enjoyed this evening, sponsored by the Bavarian Ministry of education, culture, science and art. After my Keynotespeech, we talked for several hours with the guests: they had so many questions.

An interview with the Austrian Minister of Defence Hans Peter Doskozil 19. Juni 2017

Filed under: News — Judith Grohmann @ 09:31

Today you can read an Interview that I did with the Austrian Minister of Defense, Hans Peter Doskozil, in my beloved Newspaper Münchner Merkur. He talks about the Compulsory Military Service and the debate launched about the German „Wehrmacht“ Military Service. The cool pictures in the Wintergarden of the Ministers office in Vienna have been made by my photografer-colleague, Regine Hendrich. The blond hair you can pitch on the first picture is from the interviewer…that is me. Besides: Minister Doskozil has an interesting CV. He began his career as a Patrolman in Vienna after he finished High School.

Please read the full ITV on the Internet page of Münchner Merkur:
