Louis,

Thank you for speaking at the New Hampshire Safety & Health Conference. Your presentation on WORKPLACE VIOLENCE: SIGNS & SYMPTOMS OF DRUG USE was very well received by our attendees.

We hope that you enjoyed meeting the attendees at the Conference and that you will consider returning in the future as a presenter in your area of expertise. If you have any ideas for breakout sessions for 2019, please let us know. We will begin planning in a few months.

We have reviewed and tabulated the feedback that was provided by attendees. We recognize that attendee feedback is as vital to you as it is to us, so I have enclosed a summary of the evaluations from your session for your review.

On behalf of the Board, Conference Committee, and Staff at the National Safety Council of NNE, we thank you again for your support in this year’s conference!

Comments from a recent Women’s Safety Course in Peterborough, NH

Mr. Chatel was an engaging and very convincing instructor and all present are safer because of his short workshop. Both the CPCU Chapter and GSIP members present strongly recommend him as a speaker.

Dear Lou,

I want to take the time to thank you and your staff for a riveting, informative presentation to our staff yesterday. Your presentation on violence and subsequent response was extremely well received by our entire staff. You were able to clearly and concisely identify alarming behaviors, de-escalation techniques, and survival response options that either had the entire office discussing long after you left the building – that my friend is the tell-tale sign of a great topic and a well prepared presentation.

Being a professional presenter myself, having performed Safety presentations to large groups for over 20 years, I was truly impressed by your frank discussion, well defined slides and interactive examples that were deployed during your time with The Rowley Agency! None of us will forget “Run, Hide, Fight” and I’m sure everyone will bring that message home to their loved ones!

Thanks again!

Hospitals have a deep responsibility to care and protect their patients and employees which requires us to train for all potential risks. This program provides the theoretical and hands on training that can help staff save their own life and those of coworkers and patients. This training will generate discussion around the dinner table on how to keep yourself safe if you are ever in the horrible situation where you need to fight for your life and give you tips on how to avoid being in that situation.

This was truly one of the best speakers we’ve had at Lions Club. These are dangerous times and you can’t just hide your head in the sand.

Our agency had Lou Chatel, Jr. of AaSRT, LLC in the other day to conduct training for us on Awareness, Workplace Violence, and Active Shooters. A very unfortunate topic that needs to be addressed but nonetheless Lou did an outstanding job. The material was useful extending beyond just the workplace to our families, and for me personally there were several moments where his discussion had me thinking of the “What would I do….” question. He couples seriousness with humor, kept us engaged, and all of us walked out of the session a little more aware of how to protect ourselves in these situations.

I would recommend Lou and his team to anyone looking for guidance on these current issues.
