Accolades


“We were going through fundamental changes for the second time in one year. Your process and workshops prepared us for this change. You showed us how to reduce resistance to innovation and did so in ways that everyone in the room understood and accepted. The speaker evaluation sheets reflected the effectiveness of both the content and your presentation skills. The meeting ended on a positive level that we did not feel was attainable. Wayne, we owe you a debt of gratitude."

Robert Winstanley, Director Public Affairs, Miracle Foodmart

"I want to thank you for the outstanding presentation that you gave to our symposium. Your message was right on target and your delivery was excellent, just what we needed to lift up the group in the difficult spot near the end of our two-day program. Your presentation exceeded our expectations – you have a lot of satisfied customers at Westinghouse.”

Robert Ramont, Director Marketing Operations, Westinghouse

“It was a red letter day! Certainly, your presentation was key to making the day a real success. We wanted a serious message, with some humor, that would motivate our audience. Well, your presentation was right on target.”

Dave Olgren, Vice President Casting Division, Ford Motor Company

“Well Wayne, you did it. One accolade after another cited your presentation as the `significant event of the conference, worth the price of admission all by itself.’ On my own behalf, I too was enamored. The clarity with which you spoke will be envied for some time to come.”

Lawrence Seidl, Senior Associate, Pastoral Services, Catholic Health Association

“You were sensational! Your unquestioned expertise, coupled with a didactic presentation, created an exciting environment for learning. Our audience was very generous in their praise of you – and they are a tough group to please. A simple ‘thank you’ seems an inadequate expression of gratitude but it is said from the heart.”

Alice Heist, Executive Director, Connecticut Quality Council

“Wow! You really closed our meeting with a bang! I was told you were good, and they were right. Thanks so much for doing such an outstanding job with our Senior Management Group. You not only kept their attention but you got them intrigued with the idea of thinking differently.”

“We did a lot of research on speakers beforehand. Nevertheless, I’m always a bit nervous. But even the small amount of anxiety I did have was completely uncalled for, as you were great! Your message fit the theme of change beautifully. And the examples you used together with your delivery (that incorporated just the right amount of humor) gave us one terrific opening to our second day.”

Richard Sandreuter, Vice President Sales, S.D. Warren Co.

“Your presentation style, which combined humor with a detailed and relevant message, captivated the audience for the entire hour. They did not want you to leave the stage! You received the highest possible rating. From a meeting planner’s perspective, you were terrific person with whom to work. You tailored your presentation to our industry and audience. Your presentation kicked the conference off to an excellent, dynamic start.”

Lisa Palmer, Program Manager, Walker Interactive Systems
