  • Client Feedback:

    Thank you for the terrific and powerful safety message you delivered to our employees and customers yesterday. I've gotten many compliments and strong feedback about how much more aware they now are of the consequences of seemingly trivial actions can have on safety.

    You have a great style that rivets people's attention for an hour and a half by combining humor with the seriousness of the safety top and hard lessons learned from your observations as an EMT. You kept our attention completely and I have no doubt you will have saved some of us from serious injury or illness due to your fine presentation.

    You not only shared some incredibly important and lifesaving tips but you delivered them in a manner that made our employees feel a deep sense of value...our employees are still discussing your stories and expressed they have changed their behaviors as a result of what you shared. We are delighted to say that based on the feedback received from the participants that the seminars hit the mark and the overall strategy was a success.

    Our feedback on this session was very complimentary to your presentation skills and wealth of knowledge in this area.
    As you are aware, delegates to our conference were comprised of risk managers from major corporations and Governments from across Canada, the U.S. and Eastern Europe. Despite diverse backgrounds, delegates obtained helpful information and many useful tips on injury prevention to bring back to their organizations.

    I would like to thank you for coming out to LaSalle County Nuclear Station and speaking at our fourth quarter safety meeting. You captivated our attendees and created quite a buzz at our station.

    I've heard nothing but positive feedback from our employees on your safety message. You did an excellent job pf personalizing the message and got the point across in a sincere but fun way of why being safe is so important. This is one safety meeting all of us here at LaSalle Station will walk away from and continue to think about for a long time.

    Your presentation style had a very dramatic impact on the messages you delivered. Many people will recall the situations during your presentation and I am positive that these situations will make them think "twice" before proceeding in an unsafe manner. Mission accomplished!

    ...I was overwhelmed by the positive comments they provided after your presentation. To list them all here would take all night to type, but the general feeling was that it was a great message, applicable to us in both the workplace and home.
    ...I've been to hundreds of safety presentations throughout my career, but few have been as thought-provoking and entertaining as yours.
    I would gladly recommend you to other companies who are looking at increasing the focus on safety relating to their employees and their families.

    I want to take this opportunity to thank you for making our Ninth Annual Celebrate Safety Banquet truly an event to remember.

    As you pointed out in your keynote speech, though, safety is something we need to think about in every aspect of our life.

    The eight points that you presented, and the stories told to illustrate their importance, were both insightful and entertaining.
