"Our event absolutely spectacular! Judging from the buzz during the event and the written evaluations, I can safely say this was our most successful event ever (our eighth). The credit for starting the day off on the right note goes to you. You certainly did your homework and provided a perfect fit in presentation style, content, and audience appropriateness. The goal of the conference, which was to facilitate women to integrate new and healthy lifestyle behaviors into their daily lives was enhanced by your strong and motivating message."
"Eileen McDargh delivered the opening presentation to a full day Compliance Conference organized by First National Bank of Omaha with high-level employees in attendence. Eileen energized the audience with her opening presentation, “Radical Resiliency: Transforming in Changing Times.” Eileen was able to relate to the audience with very powerful, positive messages that set the right tone for the rest of the day. Several executives reached out to me to describe what a powerful impact Eileen’s opening remarks had on them and how important they thought would be for them to have Eileen speak to their teams. Throughout the planning process for the conference Eileen was very interested in our company, our audience, and our goals. She was very responsive, reliable, and proactive."
"Thank you, once again, for the excellent presentation that you gave to the Michigan Department of Transportation Leaders at the Leadership Conference. The verbal comments we received were all very positive and enthusiastic and the conference has been rated as the best ever. Your energetic presentation first thing in the morning, was the perfect way to energize the conference and to get the participants thinking about how to become a better leader. You also did an excellent job weaving our Director’s position comments into your custom designed."
"Eileen McDargh served as the opening keynote at our recent 15th annual patient safety conference. Her talk on resilience was inspiring and energizing. Participants were thrilled with the talk and one participant that has attended for years commented that Eileen was “the best opening keynote you have ever had!” I highly recommend her as a speaker."
"As our keynote closer you provided the big extra that everyone took home. Your two seminars and your early arrival set the stage so that you were indeed part of the family and the attendees could feel that. Your ratings clearly reflected that your message was received and appreciated. We are thrilled with the results of training almost 1,300 attendees. Your three appearances reached almost half of these and they not only took you in as part of their family but gave you the highest rating of all the speakers."
"How great it was to work with you and how impressive it was that you tailored your keynote session for our program. I am so glad you were able to join us a day earlier and that you used your time wisely while you were in Louisville… sitting in on the Friday morning keynote speaker, visiting with our members, staff, committee and sponsors, and joining us for the Comedy Hour. Many speakers remain in their guest rooms, but certainly you see the value in networking with our attendees and immersing yourself in our program. Your hard work and dedication certainly paid off in your presentation to our members."
"I especially am appreciative that you attended the whole conference and participated in order to better understand your audience. It showed in the way you incorporated the messages that were woven throughout the breakout sessions into your program. It was a thoughtful and purposeful way to engage our members in a way that connected them to you and your message! Very powerful!"
"You are such an amazing woman—your optimism and vibrancy is refreshing and infectious. You were such a fantastic component of our Women's Business Forum. You are the first standing ovation in six years from a very seasoned and analytical group of senior executive women representing a wide variety of industries. Thank you!"
"We are a team of critical care nurses who provide education in healthcare settings to end-users of our patient monitoring products. As nurses, we are inherently resistant to change. Your book is fantastic and will not only be a great gift to my team, but also a source of encouragement as we maneuver through these times. Thank you so much."
"Your dynamic, thought-provoking presentation really prompted us to reassess our thinking, and more importantly, our acting. Not only did you touch on our problems head-on, you also gave us down-to-earth, important ways to make our lives better, less stressful, and self-directed. The participant evaluations for your presentation were outstanding. Everyone loved you and rightly so; you gave us a sense of direction!"
"All I can say is WOW!! Your message, style, and pace for our Work/Life Balance Event were absolutely perfect! … I truly look forward to working with you more…”
"Everyone seemed to identify with what you were saying, and your integration of the ‘Microsoft-eze’ that you incorporated in such a short time was incredible!!!"
"Her presentation was insightful, engaging and most importantly made a lasting difference for our global leadership team."
"She was a joy to work with and remains one of the best speakers we’ve ever had."
"Timely, uplifting, necessary, worthwhile, refreshing, fast paced, and lots of fun."
