Having worked as a safety consultant since 2001, there are few challenges I’ve not experienced when it comes to building a safety practice. From learning the financials, to marketing, to business development, you need many more skills than just technical knowledge to be successful as a consultant. I’m ready to share my successes (and failures) with other consultants who are growing their practices.
As I’ve done while serving as ASSP Louisiana Area Director for four years and serving on all seven chairs of the Executive Board of ASSP's Greater Baton Rouge Chapter, I will continue to advocate for the greatest value of our membership.
I am willing and able to do whatever is necessary to assist the current administrator in their duties whenever possible.
To this end, I would be honored to serve as the next Consultants Practice Specialty Assistant Administrator.
