Kristi’s evaluations were great — several people wrote in, “wish that her program could have been longer.” As the last presenter, she had a tough spot, but she did a wonderful job connecting with the group and keeping the energy level up.
Thank you again for your assistance in making our event a sensation !!
Both speakers were fabulous and exceeded our expectations. I told both that if they ever needed a customer reference, to let me know.
Just wanted to let you know Alison was amazing. I have gotten so much fantastic feedback about her from our group. I really appreciate all of your help to put this together! Thanks so much!
Chip was the consummate speaker; arrived early, met the key people, had done his homework on us thus was able to weave our potential issues into his overall experiences and presentation. Very approachable and engaged, and interacted with the audience. Enjoyed his session and meeting with him.
How did Rick’s appearances turn out? Rick was amazing in both of his presentations. Great comments…”perhaps the best speaker ever at …”. He was clearly the most prepared and took the most time to get to know our organization and its people before he arrived to speak. Received numerous comments about the quality of our speakers being the best in many years.
Chip Conley – Effusive; great word to use regarding our feelings towards Chip as a speaker. First, the 30 minute prep call beforehand proved invaluable. Not sure if you do that with all your speaker/group match-ups or if it is just a Chip thing. His prep work had multiple benefits; audience endearment, message relevance, thought delivery with humor.
He was early for the meeting which gave us a chance to get everything ready (presentation, audio, etc.) as well as just visit with him for a few minutes. The effort he put in preparing for his engagement with our group, his promptness, and his willingness to visit with everyone, provided all of us involved in the meeting planning to know we had selected the right guy with the right message at the right time; all before he spoke to us!
The onsite comments afterwards were resounding, plentiful and positive.
Stan did a very nice job. He kept the group engaged and had a very interactive session. We had a good session. Thanks so much for your great help with this. You are terrific, as always. Please know Mike, that I feel working with you is the real treat! You are a pleasure to do business with. You have sent us some great speakers. Your flexibility and responsiveness are unrivaled.
Steve did a great job for our event. He is very high energy and gave us specific tips to take back to our office to make us more productive in a proactive way.
Thanks for working with us on finding a great speaker for Sales Circle and Steve was very well received by the group!
I wanted to let you know that your presentation was outstanding! I spoke with a few attendees right after the session and they all loved the message you communicated because they felt it applied so much to our audience. I want to thank you again for taking time out of your schedule to be our keynote speaker and i am sure that our post-conference evaluations will have some glowing comments about your presentation.
Hey Mike, John did a fantastic job! People really enjoyed hearing from him and his message fit great into our overall agenda. Dinner the night before went well too.
It was such a delight to meet Pernille and to have her join us. Our CEO, staff, board members, etc. who had a chance to meet her personally have said the most wonderful things about her. We still have some attendee feedback rolling in and I just have to share the positive comments that have been submitted so far via survey:
“She had a wonderful presentation. Very good choice in speakers.”
“Great speaker and very well presented.”
“She inspired courage to face challenges both known and unknown with the same vigor. Trust yourself and capabilities and invite collaboration.”
Well, have to say Marcus was a huge hit. He was an exceptional speaker and super well received. Very engaging – right up there with … – probably tied as our all-time best ever speaker.
We had a wonderful retreat. I think Josh did an excellent job of crafting his presentation to speak directly to us – and even put himself “on our team” which I really appreciated! There were many many great and positive comments at dinner last night and during the other presentations yesterday afternoon. Thank you so much for giving us a great kickoff.
Rest assured we’re very happy with your responsiveness and service, and will certainly look to Promenade in the future for our speaker’s needs.
Not only was Alistair the best-received speaker we’ve had in some time, but he was an absolute pleasure to work with. His subject matter knowledge was extensive, and his rapport with the audience generated a really terrific response. He provided excellent context, too, bringing a big topic into specific focus for our industry and attendees.
Rohit was indeed very well received. Our publisher considered him one of the top 2 speakers we’ve ever had. He was the perfect complement to the speakers that preceded him, and his message was informative, provocative, and mesmerizing. It was also great to have his book at hand for each delegate.
Thanks for being our keynote speaker! You were fantastic. We had tears in our eyes from laughing so hard!
It was so nice meeting you today Mike (and putting face to name/voice). I have gotten such great reviews from several leaders and actually just was cc’d on an email just a little while ago from …. saying ” Just finished the leadership event… great event. The material was great… I believe it connected with the team.. at least it did with me… and Lindsay was great”
Ross was wonderful. We heard things like “best speaker I’ve ever had at …!” Thanks for all of your help in getting Ross lined up for us with such limited notice and for getting him to us through the snowstorm.
There was lots of positive feedback regarding Mitch’s presentation. And, everyone who got to meet him on Tuesday night had great things to say.
We thoroughly enjoyed having Vince Papale speak at our annual conference. Vince’s vibrant personality and enthusiasm made it very easy to connect with our audience of privately held business owners. As one of the largest accounting firms in the country, we are continually looking for ways to differentiate ourselves. Having Vince speak to our clients, it reemphasized that we ‘look beyond the numbers’ for our clients to provide motivation and guidance to improve their business and family life. Vince did a brilliant
job of demonstrating the parallels between the team sport of football and running a privately held business. The feedback we received from the audience was 100% positive. We appreciated the contribution to the success of our event; a number of clients commented that it was our best conference ever.
Sarita was great. Everyone enjoyed her presentation. … Sarita provided an excellent balance to some heavy topics. She also provided great ways for our faculty and staff to move forward in a positive manner. Exactly what we were hoping.
Thank you for your dynamite keynote at the Community College in San Diego. Our audience raved and it was the perfect high energy note to end our conference on. I knew you’d be great and you exceed my expectations. I hope to work with you again soon!
Will Allen’s visit was terrific! We have lots of very motivated students who now have some concrete guidance on how to move forward on their sustainable food projects. They plan on coming down to the Growing Power facility this spring for training.
