In 2017, after years of sending emails by the hour 7 days a week to nearly 2,000 industry contacts, Bob partnered with Catamount Consulting and Simpson Square Media Group to take his email distribution online. What emerged is Cornett’s Corner, a web-based platform that allowed for easy posting and distribution of content.
Today, our daily email reaches nearly 5,000 safety industry professionals and grows everyday. What started as Bob’s vision to share resources and knowledge has turned into his legacy.
Our goal as partners with Bob on this project is to be good stewards of his legacy—to bring the full breadth of his experience and resources online, continue to grow the audience, and leverage technology and our website to facilitate a greater exchange of ideas and knowledge across the great community we have all built together.
To do this, we ask you for your support. Whatever you can contribute will help us:
- Bring Bob’s full archive of materials online—in an indexable and searchable format
- Manage the expenses of hosting the site and distributing the daily email
- Develop the website into a more robust tool for news, events, information, training, and resources
“Catamount and Simpson Square have been great partners. They have always respected my vision and have generously volunteered a lot of time and resources to make continuing what I do possible,” Bob said. “I hope what we as a community accomplished over the past couple of decades is just the start. With your support—whether a donation, sponsorship, or advertisement—we can be and do even more.”
The Cornett’s Corner team honors and respects all that Bob has done, and we want to carry forward with his spirit of generosity and good will. We also fully agree with Bob when he says we can be and do even more, but only if we do it together. So please join us in this next chapter. If you have the means, make a donation. If you have an idea on what we can add to be a more valuable resource, please share it. Because at the end of the day we’re all working for the same outcomes—safer work environments.
Brittany, Diane, Heidi, Michael, and Scott…with a shout out to the man who remains the driving force of everything we do, Bob Cornett
