Injecting vision, re-energizing workforces and inspiring individuals. Les McKeown is the ideal presenter for your next event.
When we needed a truly exceptional keynote speaker for our tenth annual all-employee meeting, I’m delighted to say we found exactly what we were looking for – and more – in Les McKeown.
As our conference (entitled “10 Years and Growing”) was to celebrate our ten-year anniversary, we wanted a speaker who could motivate and challenge our entire workforce with a vision for continued growth in the decade ahead. Les met our challenge – and surpassed our expectations – with a stirring, entertaining and visionary presentation that left everyone in the hall excited, re-energized and wanting more.
“ a stirring, entertaining and visionary presentation that left everyone in the hall excited, re- energized and wanting more.”
The content of Les’s keynote presentation (which was based on his Predictable Success® methodology) was so strikingly fresh and insightful, and pitched so perfectly to our needs at that precise stage in our development, that everyone who attended left the conference with a genuinely new perspective as to how we could continue to grow and achieve new successes in the years to come, both individually and as a team.
Ahead of the conference, I was particularly impressed with Les’s commitment to fully understanding our needs and goals for his presentation. Les scheduled not one, but three conference calls with me and my senior executives, in addition to reading our most recent employee surveys and other data to fully brief himself of our history, current situation, and future challenges.
From the outset, Les went out of his way to make us feel comfortable that we had made the right choice in selecting him as our keynote speaker: before, during and after his presentation, Les’s conduct, communication and materials were first-class – professional, timely and complete – and he was always available to answer any questions we had, which he did with honesty, integrity and thoroughness.
After the conference, Les followed up with us to ensure that our needs for the session had been met and to solicit our feedback. Again, this was not limited to just one follow-up call, but multiple calls with me and my senior colleagues.
So impressed were we with both the Predictable Success® methodology, and Les’s ability to communicate with every level of the organization – C-level executives, senior and middle managers and individual contributors alike – that we subsequently engaged Les to work with our senior management team.
“Les is an event planner’s delight, and your audience will be glad you hired him.”
I can thoroughly recommend Les McKeown as a captivating, entertaining, world-class speaker for your next event. Les is an event planner’s delight, and your audience will be glad you hired him.
