Leadership Keynote: 8:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.
Who Killed Lindsey's Father?

As a manager, it would be a real challenge to explain your safety system to a 7-year old, but when it is to the daughter of an employee who was killed at work, no training or Swiss Cheese model prepare you for that. 

Corrie tells the gut-wrenching story of such a day, when he had to convey that news to Danny White’s wife and daughter, how it changed every paradigm in safety and how ‘deepsafe’ leadership emerged.
