Interview with Marie-Claire Ross

What's the story behind your latest book?
To be an effective leader, you need to have the communication skills to influence others to buy into your safety vision. Yet, so many safety professionals are not taught how to motivate and change behaviour. I know many safety professionals who feel frustrated that they're not getting the results they desire. My book helps all the safety professionals out there who want to write and talk about safety in an engaging way, so that they can get everyone aligned with the safety goals.
What will people learn?
This book will help those who want to stop wasting their time and resources on safety campaigns that just aren't working. It has lots of helpful templates and guidelines to instantly create attention grabbing safety messages.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I love learning. And there is so much to learn! I'm always reading a book and I read one a week. I'm always doing training courses and meeting new people to help me learn. I then take all that knowledge and turn it into helpful information for people. I just love doing that.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Well, reading. Or I tend to cook a lot. It's a nice creative avenue for me. Of course, keeping my head clear is also important so I jog along the waterfront every morning and have walks with my family later in the day.
