I brought Paul in to speak to participants in our Leadership Development Program at Johnson & Johnson. Over 300 people from across the globe tuned in to this virtual event. And in spite of it being virtual, Paul was super engaging and high energy. He took the time to get to know our organizational needs and customized the content just for us. He left specific action items for both personal and professional success. He was fabulous and has already been requested to return for another speaking engagement!
– Emily Bouley, Foundational HRLDP- Workforce Analytics at Johnson + Johnson
Paul was very engaging. We got a lot of excellent feedback from our customers, saying that they found his presentation useful both for their personal lives and their business operations. I have been doing this work for over thirteen years and I have never seen our attendees respond and engage more than we saw with Paul. People were eagerly shouting across the room wanting to respond and participate! We will certainly work with Paul again.
– Kate M. Paciorek, Program Manager at National Interstate Insurance
Paul was a delight to work with. He showed up early so we could check all of the technical aspects of his program. He was super energetic and engaged with the audience. He was exactly what we needed for the closing of our annual meeting.
– Tonya Suits, Association Manager, The American Society of Workers’ Compensation Professionals
We really appreciated Paul’s ability to tailor his presentation to our audience and timeframe. He was excellent at virtually engaging our members and delivering meaningful, relevant information.
– Shauna McReynolds, Executive Director, Pacific Northwest Utilities Conference Committee
Paul's Opening Keynote Presentation for our Partners In Prevention 2021 Health & Safety Fall Virtual Conference was a great way to kick-off the event. He was inspiring, engaging, relevant, and professional- both in front of the audience and behind the scenes. Also, the way he used and managed the “chat” conversation was a wonderful experience for our virtual audience. A pleasure to work with and feedback was very positive. Two thumbs up!
– Joanna Hickling, Workplace Safety & Prevention Services
As a regular event planner, I am always looking for fresh, exciting speakers. Paul was everything I could hope for: professional, polished, funny, and very informative. My audience loved him!
– Lisa Tate, The Institute of Families
Paul worked closely with our team and tailored the content to fit our unique needs. He easily engaged the audience with his energy and enthusiasm, and I was amazed at how he made it all make sense with some practical skills to put into practice right away.
– Tammy Scott, Amica
Paul's presentation during our National Planning Session was excellent! We got phenomenal feedback from everybody we polled. His approach was very interactive. He got people up who typically wouldn't participate. It was a powerful, clear, and very positive message.
