Alan’s story hit us hard, many of us found it very emotional, but he has an amazing way of telling it, with jokes, laughter and positivity – amazing after what he has been through. Here is the real deal of why it’s so important to empower your people to ‘speak up’. Thoroughly recommend YOU get him in front of your people, his message is powerful.

Alan was kind enough to come and present to our group of first year apprentices (30 in total). His story of how the accident happened, how his injury not only affected him but those close to him and the obstacles that he has had to overcome as a result of losing his arm really hit home the importance of working safely in the workplace and not being afraid to speak up if you feel something is not safe.

It was also appreciated that Alan spoke freely about events that happened after the accident that most people might shy away from due to the nature of the events. After the presentation Alan was fantastic as he hung back to talk to the apprentices and answer the multitude of questions they threw at him.
I would highly recommend Alan to anyone thinking of having a guest speaker come to their organisation.

Alan was just what our site needed to bring a higher level of safety awareness. His incident – before, during & after, was eye opening for all who attended & how just 1.2 seconds can change a person’s life.
