Presenters for each year’s Expo come from nearly every facet of safety and management backgrounds. Most often, a presenter is recommended to the Safety Advisory Council because of their professionalism, presentation skills, and expertise in a particular topic. Occasionally a presenter will contact the Council on their own having heard about the Expo, and the attendance it draws. Presenters who have offered topics at prior events are invited to return based on three key criteria:
- Presentation skills and ability to communicate to the attendee;
- Topic value and relevance including visual and handout materials;
- Evaluation(s) based on the attendees who were in previous workshops.
The Safety Advisory Council, after more than thirteen years of experience, realize that shorter, clearer workshop topic titles and more definitive, understandable course descriptions result in more attendees at the sessions who end up being a more satisfied audience. The Council also understands that new approaches to old topics and new topics are always making themselves present. The 2017 Expo featured several topics focused on Fall Protection along with Cal/OSHA regulatory presentations.
We are extremely fortunate to have access to the best trainers and educators. Each of the more than 40 presenters will volunteer their services to the 2017 Expo event — it is without a doubt that their continued commitment and support of the Expo is the cornerstone of our success.
Thank you to all returning and new presenters who have committed for the 2017 Safety Expo!
