What our clients say
“I personally cannot thank you enough Rob for the assistance you have given us in High River. Going through Canada’s Largest Natural Disaster is not an easy task and it would not have gone this well without your guidance. Your practical and blunt advice is more than appreciated. You have been a guide for our council and the way you protect the best interests of our community is greatly appreciated. I always looked forward to your rebuttal after I went off on a rant about something I didn’t know much about. All of High River is forever thankful for the work you have done for us.”

“The presentation that Rob delivered for our Chamber Luncheon was both simultaneously interesting and unsettling. While the threat of natural disaster exists around us, we as British Columbian’s rarely take the necessary time to consider the full extent to which preventative measures should be addressed.
Above all, Rob’s presentation reminded us to value what we have both in our family and our community and to do the best that we can to keep it safe, because your world can be turned upside down in an instant. Rob did a great job as a speaker for our luncheon group. His information was valuable, timely and poignant. We gladly welcome him to speak for us again at his earliest convenience.”
