...you were the highlight of the day.

On behalf of the TUN Conference committee I just wanted to say a huge thank you for coming along last Friday and speaking at this year’s TUN Conference. I for one thoroughly enjoyed your talk, I can see why you do it for a living, you were fantastic! I definitely think you were the highlight of the day. The feedback was phenomenal and the only complaint is that people would have liked to listen to you for longer so that’s certainly not a bad one.

he reminds us all why we should be motivated at work every day...

"Darren is a very positive and inspiring man. Despite his health background he reminds us all why we should be motivated at work every day. He stresses how important it is to have the right attitude and not think "I work in the Marketing Department or in production" but "I help people who suffer from kidney disease and save lives."

highly recommend Darren for any company embarking on the quality culture journey

Darren Cawley spoke to the staff at the Allergan Westport site during our Health & Safety week in 2016. His talk was inspirational and struck a cord with all of us. There was a realisation after his talk that we were not just working at Allergan we were making products to transform people's lives -what a remarkable impact from a one hour session. Darren has a natural wit and charm and speaks freely and easily about his experience. His positive mental attitude and ability to make it through very challenging times in his life is truly remarkable. I would highly recommend Darren for any company embarking on the quality culture journey to help drive the message of patient safety first.
