It Won't Happen To Me

Personal safety.  Do you know how to anticipate possible dangers and have an action plan for avoiding potentially harmful situations while on the job?  

Or do you think, “It won’t happen to me.” 

Laura Waller, a former police officer, knows first hand the potentially dangerous situations that can occur in intimate settings such as a client’s home, visiting an unfamiliar neighborhood, or ending up in the middle of a domestic dispute.  She wants to help you and your clients develop a realistic awareness of risks, so you can reduce your chances of becoming a victim.  She will provide helpful advice, discuss possible scenarios you may encounter, and reveal the contents of her “Hot File” system.

Now the Owner and President of  “The Department of Organization, Inc.” Laura Waller worked as a police officer for over 10 years!  Specializing as a juvenile officer, Laura worked in programs such as: Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.), School Resource Officer, Crime Prevention, Bicycle Safety, and McHenry County Shop with a Cop, and McHenry County Safe Kids.  She is uniquely qualified to teach Professional Organizers and their team members how to consider their safety during direct service client appointments. 

Laura is an engaging speaker who is passionate and knowledgeable about personal safety.  She has a matter-of-fact and approachable presentation style. As a result of her commitment to her message, everyone who attends will come away inspired and armed with practical information they can apply to improve their personal safety while on the job!
