Honoring Bob McCall

It is with great sadness that we announce the recent passing of Bob McCall, a frequent presenter at the iP Utility Safety Conference & Expo. Bob always delivered high-energy, inspirational messages of safety leadership to the attendees of our events. 

In memory of Bob, we want to share one of his most inspiring messages: “Awaken the Leader in You.” Please watch the video and know that you will become a better leader for having heard Bob’s message.

Bob was a friend to all who knew him, and we at iP will forever miss our dear friend.
