Why Is Martin A Credible Speaker And How is He Involved With Injury Prevention?
I’ve worked 20 years as a Fire Fighter/Paramedic and still working as one. I’ve seen almost every injury that can happen to the human body. In almost all cases, carelessness was the cause. Personally, I’ve never lost an arm, a leg, been horribly burned or received head injuries so severe I was never able to recognize my kids. I never want to. But, I’ve personally dealt with hundreds of people who have and I’ve dealt with hundreds who have died due to their injuries. I’ve learned from their mistakes. Your employees can also learn from their mistakes.
Speaker and Author
For the past 11 years I’ve designed and delivered hundreds of safety programs for a broad range of industries. From the tiny gas plant in the middle of nowhere to large safety conferences with thousands of attendees, I know what works to hold audience attention. I also know how difficult it is for safety professionals. I've been a safety professional for over a decade.
response to employee needs, I've also written three injury prevention books: I Won’t be into Work Today - Preventing
Injuries at Home, Work and Play. Kids for Keeps – Preventing Injuries to
Children and What Do You Mean I’m Stressed – Recognizing and
Managing Your Stress.
My latest book is called “Safety Tips That Will Save Your Butt – Real Life Examples From A Fire Fighter/Paramedic.
I’ve spoken across North America at numerous safety conferences, banquets and have delivered many in-house talks for quarterly or annual safety meetings.
Powerful Stories That Will Be Remembered
People like stories and they are best told from someone who was there in the heat of the moment. I’ve got first hand experience dealing with illnesses, injuries and fatalities. In fact, you might think some of these stories are so bizarre that I made them up. I didn’t.
“I’m still hearing you quoted as I walk through the hallways. You made quite an impression on our employees and management team.”
-Char Slonis, Huntsman Polyurethane
Intelligent People WILL Do Bizarre and Dangerous Things to Injure Themselves.
For 20 years I've seen many intelligent people do very stupid acts to cause themselves and innocent people harm. I've turned these common acts of carelessness (or stupidity) into something your employees will remember so they don’t take the same silly little risks and create devastating results. When it comes to injuries, there's no second chance. It’s less painful to learn from other people's mistakes. To make safety easier to swallow, my stories have a lot of humor to help the safety message stick.
Dynamic and Humorous Speaking Style
Here's what some of my clients have to say about my talks:
“Thank you for the terrific and powerful safety message you delivered to our employees and customers. I’ve gotten many compliments and strong feedback about how much more aware they now are of the consequences that seemingly trivial actions can have on safety… You have a great style that rivets people’s attention by combining humor with the seriousness of safety… I have no doubt you will have saved some of us from serious injury due to your fine presentation.”
D. Smalley, President and CEO,
thank you for your exceptional presentation at our site safety meeting. You
captured the attention of our employees and drove home the point of how
important safety is every day of our lives. Your method of combining the
seriousness of safety with your humorous approach conveys the message very
“Your session was truly inspiring and was very popular with our delegates. Some of the comments are as follows.
am increasingly amazed by the impact you made on our audiences.”
want to thank you for making our Ninth Annual Celebrate Safety Banquet truly an
event to remember…The message you have to present is one that the construction
industry will truly benefit from.”
“Those who heard Martin speak are asking that we have him return to speak on another topic next year. His delivery blended humor and his own professional experiences to create an unforgettable safety message. Month’s later employees are still telling me they thought of Martin while they were “fixing” something at home.
Maryann Grodecki, Aventis, Swiftwater, PA
can I say? The reviews were without a doubt, full of high praise that you can
be proud of… Words to describe your presentation were “great presentation…had
my full attention all the time…passionate.” I can only say thank you which
hardly seems to be enough words.”
You Get What You Pay For
When you book a speaker there’s a lot riding on your decision. If he or she bombs, it was not only a waste of time for the employees, but you will look bad. People won’t be happy with you. As in anything else, in the safety speaking business, you certainly get what you pay for.
You’ve heard speakers and couldn’t remember what they said the next day. With Martin, the safety message is remembered for weeks, months and years to come. Scrimping on the cost of asafety speaker can cost you and your reputation a lot. If the audience says “that was a waste of time,” what have you accomplished? What does an employee with a broken leg cost your company?
“I’ve had people come up to me a year later and tell me they remembered one of my stories and the point I made with it. I’m proud of that because I know when this happens, they are thinking about safety” – Martin Lesperance
