Client reviews

  • Adrian’s messages were right on and resonated beautifully with all. His wonderful delivery of insightful leadership lessons with great humor captured the minds and hearts of all. As one participant said, ‘Adrian spoke for an hour and if he went for two hours, we’d still be with him’.

  • The feedback was outstanding! Adrian made a significant and impactful contribution to our meeting and our journey as a company. Everyone is talking about “being in the wheelbarrow” and being “all-in.” We now have some highly motivated senior leaders.

  • Extremely engaging and motivating talk! Most importantly, you tailored the content perfectly to ensure it was relevant to our fast-paced and forever-changing needs.

  • Thanks for a terrific presentation on employee engagement at our leadership meeting. You stimulated a lot of energized discussion, and everyone enjoyed your talk very much. I especially appreciate that you went the extra mile to understand our particular issues and focal points and work them so seamlessly into your presentation.

  • Not only was the message PERFECT with what we wanted as a team, but your high energy, straightforward and FUN style really kept the team engaged. During our Banquet I was told time and again that the highlight of the day was your message.

  • What can I say Adrian, you were awesome! Thank you for delivery a fantastic message that left our people inspired at our annual GM conference. We will see each other again soon.

  • You were simply outstanding. Specifically, your suggestions on low-cost-no-cost appreciation were well-worth stealing – the car wash in particular. Thank you for inspiring us and entertaining us, for making us laugh and for making us sing. We have been talking about how much we thoroughly enjoyed the show, for you are quite a performer — delivering both steak and sizzle. Thank you forever, on behalf of all who were inspired.

  • You did more in one hour to bring rewards and recognition to life than any of the rest of us could do over months and months of trying. Thank you! I’ve heard many comment that you were the best speaker they’ve heard at any HSBC conference ever, anywhere in the world.

  • Adrian and Chester. I have to thank you for the fabulous presentation you made to Memorial Hermann middle managers. Your book is great; however hearing you deliver your message in person has so much more impact. You connect all the dots from living the culture of an organization, knowing individual employees and their contributions and efforts, and creating recognition/award opportunities that honor and value employees. Halleluiah, Brothers!
