All of these great organizations want the PDR industry to mature and develop, to provide jobs to exceptional individuals and become known for extraordinary service. But, in the beginning, they all had very different approaches. As the first person to belong to all three organizations, I have worked hard to help them focus their efforts and work together instead of pulling each other down. I believe that uniting the independent technicians and holding everyone to higher standards is what will protect the industry long term.
Just as PDR has evolved over the past 20 years from using bent up rebar and cheap heavy florescent lights to state of the art LED battery operated lights and rods with interchangeable tips, so too will these organizations grow into the powerful united voice to help steer and guide the industry to new heights.
PS: So many great people have helped me along the way. I would have gone broke and given up about a hundred times if I did not have such an amazing family and support system. My marketing friends, tool designers, partners and my network of PDR technician friends have all helped to bring my ideas and dreams to fruition. Thank you.
