  • He is the most powerful speaker I have ever seen, his communication technique is extremely simple and the most powerful known to man - it is from the heart. He is able to transport his audience to the place and moment of his accident. Then he looks at all the actions that could have prevented the incident but it did not happen. He also talks about the impact of the incident to everyone around him and those at the helm of the organization. He does a fantastic job and the people react to his speech in ways that I've never seen before (some cry, others even faint), but everyone reflects on the subject.

  • It has left the most lasting impression that I can believe is possible, and it surely will save further people from serious injury or death as it will have done in the past since his campaign started. Well done for finding him and for bringing him to AT Plastics.

  • Brad spoke at our last manager meeting and he is terrific! When he tells his story it gives you goose bumps and a new resolve for safety! Everyone... deserves to see Brad tell his story... they will definitely consider the consequences the next time they put their safety at risk.

  • Brad shares a very tragic and emotional story of his safety accident that always leaves my students wanting to do their very best to protect themselves and their co-workers from accidents. To remove an arm during him presentation gets everyone's attention very quickly.
