Testimonials

“Bob, you dazzled me before you even set foot at our event. Not only were you on time with the deliverables we asked for—you created marketing pieces that we used prior to the conference making our association look knowledgeable and in-the-know on the your topic. This helped create buzz not only for your sessions but for our conference in general. If we could clone you in every topic—conference planning would have fewer headaches.
-Leigha Schatzman
Executive Director
Association for High Technology Distribution

“Planning for any meeting is stressful, especially trying to find a speaker that will appeal to all our members. Deciding to have Robert Wendover and his topic, “From Ricky & Lucy to Beavis & Butthead” was a decision that we would do over again in a heartbeat! He really connected with our attendees and gave them valuable insight into how to best manage their diverse employees. His presentation was excellent and the time he took with our attendees answering their questions after the presentation was an added bonus. He will definitely go on our “Ask him back list!”

“Perhaps my greatest appreciation is for the talent with which Bob Wendover presented his information. His presentation was more than jus first-rate audio-visual support. It was filled with strong stage presence, humor and the fine art of listening while speaking. The comments from our audience indicate strongly that he reached most if not all of them with his messages. This was not simple task for our audience not only contained the complete range of working generations but also consisted of probably a higher than average number of skeptics. Bob not only helped them understand but made the day enjoyable. His presentation was an excellent kickoff to two days of heavy learning. I believe that his presentation’s content and style was largely responsible for the success of the meeting. I thank Bob and his company for their help and look forward to working with them again.”

I knew you had hit the target when someone said, ‘It was the highlight of our three day conference.’ I have appreciated your research and attention to detail. You brought home some critical issues that we need to address in the coming months. As Kinko’s continues to expand, our ability to recruit and retain good people will hold the key to success. Your ideas have helped put us one step ahead of the competition. I look forward to working with you again.”
