Safe Driving Talks – Corporate Speaker, Military Stand-downs and more!

Posted on 21 October 2018 by Monica Zech

Providing dynamic, eye-opening safe driving presentations on what it takes to be safe on our roadways, whether you are driving, riding or walking.

See why traffic collisions continue to be our number one 9-1-1 emergency call. This new awareness will help you to avoid (or stop) bad driving habits, helping to “reduce” your collision risk factor…making you a better – more alert driver, and pedestrian!

Corporate Speaker for Companies: My talks help to reinforce your company safe driving policies – especially for employees driving company vehicles, such as no texting or other cell phone use while driving. I also take the place of two speakers, providing a professional perspective from the eyes of emergency responders, and as a victim. I’ve had personal experience with many of the major issues I cover.

Military Safety Stand-downs: I offer hard-hitting talks for your safety stand-downs, especially prior to the holidays. Emphasizing the dangers and impact of driving under the influence of alcohol and other drugs, driving distracted (texting) and the dangers of riding motorcycles. Please note: My speakers fee is waived for military talks delivered within San Diego and Los Angeles County. Outside these areas – only travel expenses are requested.

Colleges/High Schools: In arranging for my presentation to your group or class, I can target specific issues by request. My talks can range from 20 minutes, up to 3 hours or more, for your company conference, or military safety stand-down. I continually update my talks with the latest stats, pictures and videos to help drive home the message.

Audiences will see what causes traffic collisions through my perspective as; a spokesperson for both a police and fire department, as a veteran air traffic reporter for local television and radio, through research, working with crash scene investigators, the Medical Examiner’s Office, and with several National Safety organizations.

Some of topics covered:

  • Distracted driving – texting, cellphones and more
