Meeting My Heroes!

Today, I had the pleasure to meet two of my heroes in safety. Dr. Todd Conklin and Dr. E. Scott Geller are both world renowned safety professionals.

This was overall a great moment for me. Both Dr. Conklin and Dr. Geller have agreed to appear on SafetyFM podcast (not on the same episode at the same time.) They will be featured on two separate episodes. Stay tuned to SafetyFM.com, as we are excited to have both experts on.
