What they are saying about Neil...
Neil is very, very good at what he does. He won over a tough, intelligent crowd through his engaging presentation style and his entertaining storytelling. Neil clearly spent a great deal of time researching our organization, which earned him instant credibility and demonstrated to our group that he had tailored the discussion to our specific interests and needs. Our data-hungry group was impressed with his depth of subject matter expertise and his ability to explain concepts in layman’s terms. He delivered on everything we asked, and more. Well done! – Scott Brubaker, Managing Director, Alvarez & Marsal
Neil took on such a guiding role in working with my nurses in management positions. I knew I wanted someone that could provide them information and knowledge on the use of the MBTI assessment. What I didn't know, was that Neil would engage the members, interact so fully, and truly provide an exceptional experience for them. We always take the opportunity to see how well our members felt the presenter did -and out of more than 40 speakers, Neil ranked #1 -and I have some pretty amazing speakers!! Truly respect the knowledge and collegial attitude that you brought to the ANNA conference. Thanks again Neil!! – Dr. Hazel Dennison, Director of Education Services, American Nephrology Nurses Association
Neil was very engaging both in content and delivery. He encouraged participation right away and people were eager to share their stories/experiences. He had clearly done his homework regarding our company, products, and initiatives, which impressed management and got their attention from the beginning. With direct references to our organization, he was able to drive his points home and provide useful takeaways. Many people continued the conversations he had started for the rest of the conference! As opposed to some speakers that present unrealistic, lofty goals, Neil's ideas were received by the audience as attainable and easy to implement in our day-to-day lives. Overall, Neil has a gift for presenting, interacting, and empowering his audience. Thank you! – Sonal Singh, MLP Associate, Discover Financial Services
I was so pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable and beneficial this process was for our team. Neil is truly a master of his craft. He is able to read the room and keep individuals engaged through humor, personal stories, and data that is interesting and makes you want to know more. Expectations for the day were exceeded. We all left wiser, more attune to how our peers tick and think and we bonded as a group. Even individuals that were a bit skeptical about the process left saying that Neil was a perfect fit for our team and were thankful for the way in which he facilitated the session. It was a fun and eye-opening experience for all. – Mary Beth Schultz, Human Resource Manager, Hiebing
Neil did a fantastic job presenting at our national conference! The room was packed out and people were standing in the back and sitting in the aisles. He has a down-to-earth style and his content and examples are relevant and relatable. Attendees were abuzz with what they learned from his session. – Rob Worth, President – Advanced Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine
What a fun and learning-packed day! It was filled with laughter, ah-ha's, and self-reflection. Neil delivered the session in the best possible way! – Li Jacobson, VP of Technology - Kohl’s
Thanks so much Neil! Our members were really captivated by your insights and we have received so many compliments about your presentations. You provided excellent insight and perspectives about how to inspire staff and understand how to make people feel like they truly matter and can have a positive impact on those around them. – Jane Wisialowski, Connecticut Assisted Living Association, Conference Manager
