"I am excited to be part of Bond’s Advisory Board and support its revolutionary mission, empowering people – women in particular – to fundamentally be and feel safer. Bond’s first-of-its-kind personal security platform addresses the inherent personal security gap resulting from the fact that most security concerns, fears and situations do not initially warrant a 911 call – for example, walking alone at night, or encountering strangers with no one around, or simply wishing that someone competent and trusted look after and be available to our kids when we are not. Those circumstances have had no complete solution before today -- Bond promises to be that solution we all need. The Bond 24/7 Security Agents are available within seconds: they’re qualified and highly trained and can orchestrate a variety of cutting-edge security and referral services for any situation. And all of Bond’s personal security services are available from the Bond mobile app. Now more than ever, Bond’s commitment to providing personal security to all people, in all situations, is an essential mission, allowing us all to move through the world with a greater sense of safety and peace-of-mind."
