Featured Guest Speaker
"I believe that Mr. Johnson's message is distinctive and memorable, and is relevant to teaching workers and young people about the importance of staying aware of one's surroundings and having a good plan in the event of an emergency" -Patrick Hauser, Chair of North American Occupational Safety and Health Week
What kind of person looks for warnings, danger and violence and then drives head-first into it?
Greg Johnson is one of North America’s top professional storm-chasers and severe weather experts. He is also an accomplished photographer, speaker and workshop leader. Having graduated from Canada’s renowned Acadia University, and after founding and building a leading successful communications, marketing and advertising firm from the ground up, Greg decided it was time to devote himself full-time to pursuing his passion for capturing nature’s most beautiful and deadly displays of severe weather.
Building a legacy for your family, business and community requires hard work, vision and sacrifice. But there is a difference between taking risks and being reckless. Using images and stories from his storm-chasing experience, Greg will share the message that situational awareness, preparation and implementation are the real keys to success.
"He is an entertaining storyteller, down to earth and very witty and keeps the audience fully engaged from start to finish. His fantastic storm photos and videos captured our emotions and imaginations." -Robyn Stettner, IBAS
