Mr. Verret has been called upon to present his traffic-safety message in various time formats: depending on the time considerations of the Commanding Officer or Safety Office and the desired safety material to be covered. His typical show however, runs ninety minutes long.

Mr. Verret spends the initial portion of his presentation performing high-energy, audience-participation comedy. Next, he blends in folksy stories of his Cajun roots back in Louisiana.  After developing a wonderful rapport with the audience, he launches into a traffic-safety message that holds 100% of the audience’s attention. A blend of humor, stories and serious straight-talk is used throughout the course, along with quizzes, drawings, handouts, power-point presentations and role-playing.  Mr. Verret also often utilizes games between "teams" created within the audience to better facilitate understanding of his listeners and enhance the learning
