Drawing on his broad, international experience as an intelligence manager, senior intelligence analysis practitioner, and trainer, Howard brings a diverse skill set to his role at Toddington International Inc. as developer, manager, and instructor of the Intelligence Analysis Methods three-part e-learning training series.
Following an extensive law enforcement career which involved significant intelligence roles with the Australian Federal Police, the Australian National Crime Authority, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, he now applies his skills and experience in the training of public and private sector clients in intelligence research and analysis activities.
Howard’s intelligence practitioner experience covers a wide gamut of threat environments, including transnational organized crime, serious and major crime, environmental crimes, and corrections, as well as rich experience gained in the area of border and transportation security threats. He has also been heavily engaged in intelligence consulting, education, and training work on the international stage for over a decade. Howard has lectured at universities and police academies in North America and Australia, and has provided intelligence consulting services with government agencies in other parts of the world.
With proven experience in intelligence program development Howard is a strong advocate of the need for public and private sector organizations to develop a sound capacity to implement and effectively utilize an information advantage over their opponents, to build intelligence capabilities for the purposes of threat and risk mitigation, and to gain competitive advantage over industry counterparts. Working towards this end, he is very active in the intelligence training sphere, and in particular, in the development of e-learning training modules to build and strengthen the capabilities of individuals and organizations in these areas.
