Testimonials

Dan Comiskey, I would like to thank you for the very moving presentation you put on at Taurus Site Services Inc at Northwest Redwater Partnership Site. Watching you engage all of our construction workers and have them waiting for your next sentence was amazing. I am so happy to see you have such a passion in our industry and profession and I think you hit home to a lot of people. My crews continue to speak of your visit and your openness to them and allowing the pictures with you and your ring were a huge success. Keep up the good work. Stay safe and keep in touch.

Believe me when I say it was all my pleasure!!! I do truly hope we can work together again sometime soon, somewhere. You are an articulate, passionate orator. I am still overhearing conversations about your visit in the Tim Horton’s morning line and in the smoke shacks as well. You really touched some of these guys and me too!!!

Dan, I would like to thank you for the very moving presentation you put on at Shell Albian Sands. It was very hard to hold back tears in a room full of big tough construction workers. Your passion is needed in our profession and I think you hit home to many people. My crews were very thankful to sit in on your session also. Keep up the good work. I tried to shake your hand but the line and the crowd was too big. Stay safe bro.
