Everything went GREAT with Mark. Personally, I feel that he is, by far, the best speaker that we have had. He held our audience’s attention and we had more employees stay for his presentation than ever before.
The company gave everyone a copy of Mark’s book, and after our program Mark signed books until he had to leave for the airport. As a result, he missed lunch completely.
"Over and over again, I’ve heard Mark Sanborn’s motivational speech at the IIA International Conference in Atlanta in June 2010 was the best ever! As Conference Chair and the person who picked you, this makes me very happy. You were, by the way, the #1 rated speaker the conference!"
"I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you again for speaking to the associates at TFS. It’s been nearly six months since you were here and people are still talking about you and the ideas you shared. I continue to get requests from all over the organization, including our field offices, for copies of the DVD from the event so they can watch it with their teams. You really struck a chord with everyone here and I wanted to once again express my appreciation."
"I wanted to thank you for presenting at our kick-off meeting today. You really hit a homerun; perfect ending to a perfect day. Spot on with the theme of our kick off, and I could tell that the group took some key takeaways from your message and that they will put them into motion to make positive change and impact personally and professionally!"
"Thank you for helping make this a great conference for our member-owners. 100% of my feedback from members, vendors, and staff was that you and your presentation were absolutely outstanding. I particularly appreciate and liked the written materials that you provided and the structure of the wrap-up session that you coordinated. Thanks again and I look forward to our fourth engagement."
"Needless to say, Mark, you scored a homerun with the way you integrated the facts about Doubletree into your message. Everyone in the audience was spellbound by the amount of information you had about our company. Kindly make sure to include the Doubletree Hotels Corporation to your list of many, many satisfied clients."
"Thanks again for everything and for doing an outstanding job at our dealer conferences. I have to admit that our dealers at Jacuzzi Hot Tubs and Sundance Spas are some of the toughest to appease. Upon doing a quick review of our post-conference surveys the score for your presentation was the highest of the conference and there were multiple references in the open comments that stated you were the highlight."
"Although he prefers to be known as a leadership development speaker rather than a motivational speaker, keynote speaker Mark Sanborn was nonetheless a source of significant motivation for more than 1,300 delegates on the morning of Monday, December 7. Challenging the audience to put their passion for the air show business to effective use, Sanborn received as strong a positive response as any ICAS keynote in the last dozen years. He set just the right tone for the 2009 ICAS Convention and sent everyone in attendance out onto the exhibit floor with purpose and enthusiasm."
"Mark was funny and motivational. His remarks on leadership, teamwork, and self mastery were right on the mark. Mark’s tailoring made his entire talk a real homerun for our event."
