Nathan Lee, founder and President of the Denise Amber Lee Foundation, can conduct motivational training sessions for your PSAP or regional classes for telecommunicators.  He will take you on an emotional journey of the day his wife Denise was abducted raped and murdered.  The unbelievable number of opportunities and corresponding failures to save her that evening will be discussed and analyzed in this inspiring call to the 9-1-1 industry to do better.

The preventable death of his wife in Florida in 2008 has garnered national attention on the need for a better trained and certified 9-1-1 workforce.  His wife’s story has been featured on Dateline NBC, ABC’s Primetime, CNN, Dr. Phil and numerous other national venues.  Attendees will leave with a sense of pride in the importance of the job they do and every call they take could be the next Denise.  To discuss details of bringing this powerful story to your area, please contact Mark Lee/VP at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

“Great training.  I was able to see his presentation at the APCO conference in 2009, but to hear more details shared since the court case has been wrapped up was somehow even more inspiring than the first time I heard it. Thanks for bringing him to DU-COMM.  I've overheard several operators today still discussing how much they enjoyed it and how much it affected them.”


“I had the pleasure of being present for one of your talks at DU-COMM yesterday. I want to personally thank you for sharing your story with us and with so many others. I had previously heard parts of your story but did not know a lot of the details.  Thank you for reminding my co-workers just how important they are and how much impact they have in the community just by having a phone conversation.  You have more strength than I could ever imagine and I thank you again for reminding me that every day is a gift.
Thank you for proving that something positive can come out of even the most horrific acts. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I wish nothing but the best for you and your family.”


"I was in that class and must say, YOU are the most AWESOME PERSON I know. It amazes me how you can do this type of training. I hope you understand what you have done for everyone that attends your seminar; it is a true eye opener and only makes everyone a step better. Thank You so much for your time."

“Thank you for sharing your moving story with the members of the Missouri Chapter of APCO.   Your keynote speech and sharing some time with our members was a fantastic start to our conference.
Your dedication to your wife and inspirational speech were outstanding and should be shared with 50 states of APCO members.  I applaud your determination.”
Paul Anderson, President
Missouri APCO

“On behalf of Michigan APCO, I would like to thank you for presenting at our Fall Conference, especially as a last minute keynote.  I commend your courage and passion to speak out and demand mandatory standardized training becomes the norm in our profession and not the exception.  Your willingness to share your story benefits all of us in the industry and puts a face to the issues that we deal with daily.”
Christine Collum, President
Michigan APCO

“Your multiple speaking engagements in Illinois have truly been inspirational and motivational.  There hasn't been a dispatcher, supervisor or director in the audience that hasn't shed a tear and taken something back to their agency after hearing your message.  My hats off to you for carrying this torch and we will always have Denise in our hearts."
Jason E. Kern, President
Illinois APCO
