Bill Gates said, "the worse thing about hiring an average employee is not about his average performance. The worse thing is that he is taking up space that could be occupied by someone phenomenal." It is the same with speakers and trainers.
"It is always a risk when choosing a speaker or trainer. The biggest fear is having wasted anyone' s time. A definition of death is having had someone addess you without having tailored the presentation, or not beng able to relate to the audience. I appreciated all of the pats on the back for finding you".
Ed Meglis, National Association of School Business Officials
"First with Nordstrom then Ann Taylor, in my eleven years as a sales manager I know the pitfalls that create burnout. The LYFE seminar series was exactly what we needed to make us remain with the organization and commit to the company's overall picture. The speaker believed in us and in our intrinsic capabilities. Most importantly he was believable."
Megan Dougherty, Manager, Mariposa / Savannah
"I have never seen so much needed pride-building, counseling, and behind-boosting delivered so entertainingly. And your book - excellent tool."
Tyler Thornburg, New Orleans District Director, FDA
"On his own time Mr. Macdonald donned a uniform, sorted mail first thing in the morning, and then delivered a day's worth of mail before addressing our carriers, all to better understand their challenges and needs. I call that homework."
Kenneth Lynn, Director U.S. Postal Service
"During this time of budget cuts to get people to want to do more with fewer resources, your seminar was perfect."
Margaret Steiner, COO, California State University
"Over the last eighteen years we have brought in top speakers from all over the country, one every year. Utilizing a very creative and very stimulating experiential learning model as you did, I would rate your day-long training presentation at the top one or two programs we have ever experienced, especially for this uncertain time and at this moment."
