“Molly delivered a fantastic keynote address to more than 1,700 people at our annual business conference. With a diverse audience, Molly did a great job tailoring her messaging to resonate with everyone. She left our team feeling inspired and engaged. Molly is an absolute professional, and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a powerful and effective speaker.”
“Molly was hands down one of the most popular speakers at our recent leadership conference. Her energy and real-life anecdotes that come from nearly two decades of representing professional athletes and others from the world of sports kept us all totally enthralled. Her talk is entertaining and so much more as she shares her real-life experiences while at the same time deconstructing a recipe for success. Molly offers a great presentation for any leader seeking to up their game.”
“Molly Fletcher was absolutely fantastic! Not only did Molly do an incredible job at our meeting, but she also took the time prior to the meeting to visit one of our local facilities to learn about our business and then apply that learning to her presentation. As a result, our attendees received more than just an inspirational speech. Instead, they receive concepts and motivation that was relevant to them personally and applicable to what we as an organization are trying to deliver to our customers and to our Old Dominion Family members each and every day. Molly connected with our attendees from the moment she walked on the stage and because of that connection, she delivered some of the best results we have seen in our post meeting surveys. I would unequivocally, recommend Molly Fletcher for any engagement at any time. She is truly incredible!”
“You knocked it out of the park. Your energy and humor combined with your message was right on target. The team continued to speak to me about your talk the remainder of the day, during travel at airports yesterday and through emails today! In my entire career I have not seen this level of response.”
“Molly’s keynote message really hit the bullseye at our annual sales conference. Never in the 28 year history had a keynote speaker scored greater than an overall 90+ rating on our participant survey – until now. Molly inspired and engaged our sales teams to “Unleash Their Potential” in a way each participant could relate with. It is safe to say – Valpak will see her again in the very near future!!”
