Robert Stevenson What an incredible guy For someone as experienced and well travelled as he, he is an incredibly hard working, no nonsense, positive energy to be around. Many of the executives noted they have never engaged with a speaker who did research as diligently as Rob did Rob took more than a hundred pages of notes and spoke to our sales teams for HOURS For someone not familiar with aviation (at least at the beginning of the process) he could legitimately start a job today if he wanted to Rob’s presentation was engaging, thought provoking, and delivered with a great sense of humor He hit the nail on the head with some of the statements about the inner workings of our teams, and regarding some of the challenges we face as a company, as well as on a personal level He sent us (very useful) materials after the event, which many of us have already printed it out and posted on our walls as a daily reminder. Rob joined us for dinner the night prior to the event, and again the night of the event, which I think is something you should recommend your clients do moving forward. It allows for the guests and speaker to connect on a more personal level He got a chance (and went out of his way) to speak one on one with as many attendees as he could during his time with us. We will definitely be working with him in the future.
You hit home on all fronts - service, stress, team building, dealing with change, communication and leadership. You truly got us pumped up. I thank you for a truly inspiring and rewarding experience. The best part of all, you made me a hero.
I can't thank you enough for recommending Robert Stevenson to us. He was an incredible closing speaker for our Winter Marketing Conference. Rob has tremendous talent to convey his message through humor, emotion, and stories that we all will remember for some time to come. Our attendees left the conference motivated to tackle the new sales year and the challenges before them.
You were the hit with our conference participants as evidenced by the enclosed evaluations. I have nothing but glowing remarks about how motivational you were. People were truly impressed that you included so much information about our company in your presentation. Thank you for the outstanding job.
