It’s great to hear and see the feedback, especially if my talks have made a difference. Below are some of the wonderful comments I’ve received through the years to date.
On January 4, 2016 I spoke at a Safety Stand Down at North Island. Some of my presentations, like this one, are arranged through MADD. I was forwarded the email below sent to MADD San Diego following my talk:
Could you send me an address where we can send Monica Zech a thank you letter for presenting at our Safety Stand Down?
By the way, she delivered the best Traffic Safety/MADD brief I have ever seen!! It was outstanding!!

Below a letter from the Commander of this same lecture:
Please accept my sincere appreciation for your support of our squadron’s Safety Stand-Down on January 4, 2016. Stand-Downs provide an opportunity to reflect on a wide variety of safety issues including Traffic Safety Precautions. Your presentation to over 640 individuals provided an opportunity for our sailor’s to reflect on the seriousness of driving safety and the impact of unlawful driving choices. Your training was very effective and will assist them with their decisions. Thank you again for taking time out of your busy schedule to present a very constructive presentation.
