"Robert Stevenson's presentation was absolutely amazing and nothing short of inspiring. He completely captured our audience with his high level of energy, his conviction, and the undeniable truth of his message. Robert did his homework and we appreciate all the preparation.

We look forward to having him come back again in the future."

To let you know, almost every speaker throughout the next day and a half, quoted you on something during your presentation! Your name was repeated more often than anyone else!! People took a lot of notes on what you said. Thank you so much for the work you did preparing for this and the messages you shared. The reaction was so positive, we want to include the 12 points that you discussed on our website as a follow-up. Thanks again !!!”

This is the third time you have addressed our organization and your presentation was awesome, again. You spent time tailoring your presentation to our theme and researching our customers and their business to better understand your audience. It truly helped to make this one of our best conferences ever.

“I am so glad that you were available for our Company-wide gathering. The meeting was a BIG success with over 500 of our people and associate vendors in attendance. I got lots of feedback on your program with comments such as – “he was right on with what is going on with us”, “he was great”, “he did all the things a good speaker does, but better”, etc., etc. I believe the one phone message I got said it all and I wish you could hear it to hear the inflection to get the feel for just how good this person thought you were. I’ve tried to do that through manipulating the words. Hope it helps. The words were:

“Absolutely, positively terrific. He was awesome! You couldn’t have gotten a better speaker. Kudos.” Thanks again for helping make our meeting such a huge success.”

“A standing ovation sums up how we all felt about your program at our annual conference in Hawaii. You were great and we all enjoyed your presentation and passion you brought in; we all still talking about common sense which is not so common. The great thing is we all learned something. Thank you very much.”

“It is often hard to select a speaker from a demo tape that you hope will be able to deliver a message that will have an impact. After just a few moments of reviewing your tape and watching you capture the attention of your audience, I knew you were right for our meeting. Of all the speakers we have hired, you were the only one to do your homework on our company. When you presented your message and material with the Snap-On lingo, people listened. I especially enjoyed the part on stress. I continue to receive calls of appreciation for inviting you to our meeting. The message you communicated will benefit our entire team for a long time. Thank you again for your commitment to excellence.”

“You were such a hit at our convocation. You just can’t imagine the great feedback we’ve gotten since last week. Thank you for your inspiring and “right-on-target” message. You were a great help to the over 6,000 teachers and administrators you addressed. The following week, at our Board meeting, our superintendent thanked us publically for the GREAT convocation and everyone applauded. (They never do that!) We have taken to heart what you said, that recognition and congratulations are important for last year’s accomplishments, but everyone one is starting all over again from the same place this year. That has become our constant theme as we continue motivating and encouraging school staffs to strive for excellence. You were a great help to us as we began our year. Your two keynotes and two standing ovations, says it all.”

“Our convention attendees were absolutely delighted with Robert. He received the highest marks of all the speakers who presented at our three day conference.

Please know that I will certainly recommend him to my peers.”

“I would like to thank you for your amazing presentation. A meeting planner likes nothing more than to get the meeting off to a great start. Having the keynote speaker be your highest rated speaker of the conference is about the best way possible to achieve that, and you did just that. Your ratings were excellent and people added comments like:

“I wish all my staff and directors of my CU could have heard his talk”,

“One of the best messages I have heard in years” … “Outstanding. We need to hear this often … “He opened up all our eyes,” … "Outstanding energy & audience participation”. I look forward to working with you again.”

Your customized presentation clearly showed that you knew our audience and the information technology market. The members of our program walked away with new information and were motivated to make their business better and more efficient. One of the best presentations and one of the best speakers I’ve ever seen. Thank you Rob!”
