Cabot Corporation
“I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for your keynote presentation at our regional SH&E conference a couple of weeks ago. Your blend of safety motivation and practical, effective solutions for energizing and improving safety performance was absolutely the right message at the right time for our organization. As mentioned, Cabot does not usually involve external speakers for these types of events, but your presentation and style really made an impact on our site managers and SH&E leadership. The ‘caring safety’ message, in conjunction with your polished, engaging style and humorous anecdotes really resonated with the group. Our only regret is that we couldn’t cram our entire workforce in to hear the message!”

Sempra Energy Utilities
“On behalf of Sempra Energy utilities, I want to thank you for your presentations…The attendance by our executives, management, and front-line employees, including members from our many active safety committees was exceptional. Your messages were very well received by all in attendance… Thanks again, David for sharing your enthusiasm, and for your contribution in making the Safety Committee Congresses a tremendous success!”

Westcan Bulk Transport Ltd.
“Only five weeks have passed since you provided us with your insights on safety management. I am happy to report that we have already started to implement the strategies that emerged from our analysis of key dimensions for culture change in safety. Although our company has always strived to be very safety conscientious, your presentation proved to be a catalyst that is moving us to a higher level…. Here’s some quotes from our evaluation forms: ‘Fantastic job!’ ‘This was one of the best if not the best program.’ ‘Exceptional value on the importance of safety.’ ‘The best dispatch and management program yet… left ready to take on the task.’ While these statements illustrate the success of your presentation, I think that none of them are as insightful as the comment made by our general manager. The impact of our program was unequivocal when he stated to his entire contingent of operations managers and supervisors: ‘after listening to your program I have had a paradigm shift about the way that safety needs to be managed (and led) in this company.’ You have helped us to understand the role that our organization must play in keeping safety a priority in everything we do. We are extremely grateful for your help and well on our way to world-class safety performance.”
