About Eric Maddox
In 2003, Eric was the interrogator for a Delta Force team that led the hunt and capture of Saddam Hussein in Iraq. In his presentation, he walks the audience through the manhunt for the most wanted man in the world in the middle of a war zone. His hunt for Saddam went down to the very last day of his tour in Iraq. Eric created his own interrogation techniques that involve empathy, negotiation and compromise that were contrary to the military techniques of zero-sum game and intimidation. He also created a human link diagram process based on informal relationships, not formal positions of the enemy chain of command. Finally, he convinced his team that the disruptive factors of a war zone nullified previous notions the U.S. intelligence community believed with regard to the power structure of Saddam. He now teaches those empathy-based negotiation tactics to business leaders, so that they can strengthen their powers with clients and employees alike. Learn More about Eric at
