“Your message of the importance of taking a positive approach to a less than desirable situation was refreshing and inspirational, and exactly what the employees needed to hear. The professional style in which you delivered your message gave you instant credibility and allowed the audience to value the information that you were providing. Your willingness to adjust to adverse speaking conditions at several venues was greatly appreciated, as was your flexibility exhibited in accepting last minute changes to both scheduled dates and times.”
“We are truly amazed each year at the amount of work and effort it takes to plan and execute the Sagicor Motivational Seminar. My eyes have only now been opened to the fact that we truly are on a NEW MISSION each time we set out to raise the bar year after year with our seminar. A significant part of the mission is to find world class speakers who will inspire, uplift and resonate. We accomplished our mission when we found you! We cannot express in words how grateful we are for your contribution to the success of SMS2012. Your inspirational, uplifting and thought-provoking message resonated with the entire team. It is unquestionable how far your message has reached and the value it has added to our individual journey. This is already evident in the overwhelming volume of calls and e-mails that we have received since the conclusion of your presentation. We are so happy that we had the opportunity to connect with you and in turn connect you with the rest of the team. Our attendees left feeling a renewed sense of hope and spirit to challenge their individual and collective mission going forward. On behalf of the entire Sagicor family, we say thank you and wish you all the best in your future pursuits.”
“I wanted to thank for your involvement in our face to fact meeting this week. Willie’s speech was very well received to the point that a number of the team either referred back to it over the course of our meeting to emphasize a point or rally around an idea. I think everyone thought that it was a great investment of our time and helped get the team aligned for the tough conversations we needed to have around organization and team work. So again, THANK YOU for your very positive message and we look forward to working with you again in the near future!”
“On behalf of the Society for Human Resource Management, please accept my heartfelt and sincere thanks for the inspiring presentation you gave the SHRM staff. I believe your message touched many lives. Your unique and motivating style caused us all to think more carefully about taking responsibility for our own words, thoughts and deeds. Diversity messages can sometimes be murky, and the audience may go away not clearly understanding-or being moved by-the speaker’s message. That, however, was not the case with you. By bringing us through an enlightening journey about valuing diversity, you helped us understand the importance of leadership, change, challenge and responsibility. The stories you chose to punctuate your teaching points were as profound as they were memorable. Thank you for reinforcing life’s important lessons. Thank you too for reminding us how important it is to dream, to care, and to make music together by embracing diversity and valuing it.”
“Unbelievable”,”Fantastic”,”Uplifting” were just a few of the comments that I heard after your extremely motivating presentation to our Sales Executives in Orlando. Thank you so much for being a part of our Sales Training Conference. You were the perfect ending to a great meeting and it is difficult to find the words to express how you made everyone feel. Your enthusiasm and passion for life was apparent when you addressed our group. Our Sales Executives have sent me letters, notes and emails about the conference and they have all referenced what a difference you made in how they will approach their jobs as well as their lives. Our Sales Training Conference survey has returned with you receiving the highest marks from the group. Thanks again for an outstanding performance. You were right on the mark and accomplished everything we needed.”
“This conference was the highest rated conference to date and that is over 6 years. You hit the ball out of the park!”
