This is a program for those who want to take things a few steps higher, for those unique individuals who want to learn skills that will help them be more successful in any social interaction and safer in a wider array of circumstances, for those who really want to master the Bond lifestyle over time. They should start from here.
This 5-day program is balanced between high-adrenaline activities, personal development workshops, and unforgettable visits to many of the best places in Belgrade.
Here you can see the most important activities planned, but there will be a lot more. If we aren’t having lunch on the racing circuit or in the mountains, then we’ll take you out for some of the best food and drinks that anyone can find in the entire city of Belgrade. Simply book your spot at the next available conference and then sort out your plane ticket (Perhaps you can ask your own Miss Moneypenny to arrange your flight…). We will be waiting for you at the airport - the Life of Bond starts there.
You will have a Superior Duplex Room all to yourself. The Duplex Double room is a two-level room that includes a spacious living area with a workspace on the ground floor, and a gallery bedroom with a queen-sized bed. You will also have free access to the hotel’s Spa and Wellness Center, as well as a number of other amenities.
Hotel Moskva is a high-end hotel built in 1906. Located in the heart of Belgrade, it is more of a cultural monument than a hotel. It’s actually protected by the Ministry of Culture due to its beauty and storied history. It’s the perfect location for a conference of this elite caliber.
Lie to me
Considering that roughly 55% of our communication happens without ever saying a word, being fluent in non-verbal communication is extremely important. Nemanja Popovic will train you on how to understand the emotions of others by instantly reading their body language, as well as reveal the secrets of how to discover lies and deception. Nemanja graduated from the Police Academy of Serbia and has a degree in Psychology. He was a member of a criminal profiling team that relied on reading between the lines and seeing what most people would miss. He is a member of the International Association of Criminal Profilers and is a vastly experienced trainer in this field.
After we learn the ins and outs of how to read body language, we go out for some in-the-field practice. The Grand Casino Belgrade will organize an advanced Texas Hold 'Em training and dinner for all of our guests who can brush up on their skills before hitting the main casino and enjoying the rest of the night. The Grand Casino Belgrade is the best casino in the city; you can choose whatever game you prefer, lean back with a cocktail, and enjoy the atmosphere or luxury and class.
Extreme car driving
Our partner, NAVAK, prepared this special “Bond training” element of our program just for you. NAVAK’s training center is perfectly prepared for this kind of training, with a 3.5-km track, all the necessary equipment, and a highly professional staff. During the day, you will learn how to do some very cool tricks with your car and how to stay safe at the same time. Some of the planned exercises include targeted breaking, ideal race line, switching lines at a high speed, handbrake turn, reverse 180 turn, and drifting. If you have something special in mind that’s not covered by the training plan, then you can simply ask for it and we’ll include it in the training. We will spend a whole day at the training center, and every participant will have his own car to tear up the track. Expect plenty of adrenaline and the undeniable need for speed.
Everyone can’t be lucky enough to be as charming as Bond, but Petar Vagic, Serbia’s leading seduction coach, can certainly push you a few steps closer to that debonair 007. He will share some fundamental rules of social behavior and give advice on how to quickly connect with anyone. The main topics that will be covered over two evenings are opening conversations, humor, building connections, and dealing with difficult interlocutors. This session can quite literally change your life and increase the quality of many different relationships in your life. You’ll probably want to test out your newly acquired skills right away, so that night we will go out for a night in the city with Petar. He will be happy to demonstrate his skills and give more advice on real-life situations as the evening progresses.
Friday is a beloved day all across the globe, signaling the end of another work week and the beginning of relaxation and celebration. The same is true in Belgrade. The only thing better than a relaxing Friday afternoon is an exhilarating Friday night. Depending on how we feel and where we want to try out our social skills from Petar, we can start with the Grand Casino or another cocktail bar, and then hit some of the biggest clubs in Belgrade to find the real action!
Saturday will start with a bang. During an approximately 3-hour session, you will have the chance to shoot a wide variety of revolvers, pistols, and rifles. After taking you to a top-secret location, you will have your choice of weapons and can choose which ones you like and try them out. After some important lessons on weapon usage and practice, we will organize a small competition to see who the best Bond is when it comes to the fine art of firearms.
Stefan Injac and Bojana Orban will introduce you to the arts of Kickboxing and Wing Chun. You will learn the basic defensive and attacking moves from both of these renowned disciplines, but we’ll start with Kickboxing. Whereas Bojana is specialized in Wing-Chun, Stefan is an experienced kick boxer. To ensure that you get the most out of the lesson in this limited time, both of these martial arts masters will be present at all sessions.
On Saturday evening, we continue our journey to achieve Bond’s charm with Petar. After that lesson, we’ll see where the evening takes us; continuing the social seduction workshop in the field is highly encouraged. Few things can compete with the feverish energy of a Saturday night in Belgrade, especially when you are in good company!
The human race evolved over tens of thousands of years, but a real man still needs to be able to survive and take care of his loved ones, no matter what circumstances he may find himself in. On Day 4, we will visit Avala, a beautiful mountain near the city of Belgrade, in order to prepare ourselves for the extreme forest survival portion of the Life of Bond. Vladimir Kostic, a licensed mountain guide, and his crew will introduce you to the most essential secrets you need to know about survival. Not only will you learn some fascinating tips and tricks that can infuse every picnic or hiking excursion that you attend with some panache, but you will also learn important emergency procedures and survival techniques that we hope you will never need to use. During the day, we will cover topics that include building shelters, orienteering, food and water procurement, fire craft, signaling techniques, field-expedient weapons and tools, ropes and knots, expedient water crossing, and weather forecasting. By the time you finish your survival training near Avala, you’ll be ready to face the wilderness no matter where your travels take you.
Whisky and Cigar Tasting
After an exciting and possibly exhausting day in the forest, we will wind down Day 4 with a visit to La Casa del Habano. This exclusive spot is a beautiful cigar lounge where we will enjoy some top-notch cigars and top-shelf drinks. It’s a perfect place for a relaxing conversation while appreciating some of the finer things in life.
Before the official closing of the conference and a few extra surprises, Bojana Orban will lead us through the ancient secrets of Wing-Chun, a very useful self-defensive martial art form. At the end of the Wing-Chun session, it will be time for the finale to this epic Life of Bond experience…
…but we wouldn’t be at the pinnacle of the espionage game if we gave away all of our secrets…
