Frequently asked questions(FAQ) people have about our Health and Safety Motivational Speakers?

Can I speak to the Health and Safety Speaker I book prior to the event?
At CNBSAFE Safety Speakers, the Health and Safety Motivational Speakers we represent are highly professional. As such, they like to be fully briefed on the objectives you have for your site visit/event/safety day etc well before it takes place. While CNBSAFE Safety Speakers will talk to you at length and complete a full brief, you are more than welcome and we encourage this for you to talk over the phone with the health and safety speaker you book.


Alan’s presentation kept everyone enthralled and put a different perspective on safety for everyone who attended. I would recommend Alan to any business to show the reality behind an incident & the impact that an incident has on not only the injured person, but their family friends & work colleagues.
