Testimonials

“I thought I knew something about the subject having been accepted into a nine-month leadership program several years ago, but Henry Givray comprehensively defined and discussed leadership from a totally new perspective that broadened my scope and understanding of what I can strive to achieve. I was wowed. ” 
President – Marketing and Print Management Company
 
“Your presentation was not only inspirational, but innovative. After hearing your ideas and strategies, I realized your insights were different from most every other speaker and book writer with whom I have had contact. I realized that your ideas were really more of a change in culture and attitude, rather than just another process. After hearing you, I recognize that I wanted to adopt your ideas not just for my business life, but for my personal life. I have just turned 60 years old and I now have the opportunity (and wisdom) to see the benefit of your ideas.”
President – Business Brokerage Firm
 
“I’m a relatively new CEO, having been in the job a little over three years, striving hard to be a leader for my company. The information you shared in the keynote and the breakout session was really on target for me where I am right now personally and with my efforts to build a powerful management team. Those two to three hours alone made attending the conference a valuable investment for me and I believe, my company.”
President & CEO – Manufacturing Company        
 

“You really nailed the keynote today. Formal thanks will come but our quick feedback is best summed up by our company president. He just told me he puts you and Jack Welch in the same company as the top two keynote speakers he has seen. Pretty good company, and coming from an individual who has very discriminating taste in this matter.”

Senior Vice President  Events Industry Services Company

“As a life-long student and real-life practitioner of leadership and the principles you outlined in your remarks, I wanted to let you know that your ‘The Passion of Leadership’ presentation at the recent ASAE Convention in San Diego spoke to me in a very direct and personal way. Thank you again, Henry, for inspiring me to continue my personal, professional, and passionate development as a leader.”

"My ‘nod’ for this year's ‘worth-the-price-of-admission' presentation (at our industry association’s annual convention) goes to Henry Givray. Only one word can truly express my opinion of Henry's presentation – AWESOME! One of the best presentations about leadership and management that I've ever heard and at 63 years old, and considering that I've read a lot of books on that subject and attended lots of events where that subject was discussed I think that's saying something. Henry's presentation was not just excellent, it was extremely well organized and given with, yes, PASSION. Thank you, Henry."
Managing Director – Management Consultancy

Thank you for sharing with us some of the leadership methods you have used so successfully."

"It's just over three weeks since the Leaders Forum and I constantly find myself reflecting back on the experience.  While most of the day was filled with great information and moreover great inspiration, I continue to think back to your closing.  You certainly don't need me to tell you how ridiculously powerful it was and how it grabbed the attention of all of us the room who had not seen it previously, but I feel compelled to tell you so."
President – Bath Hardware and Fixture Distribution Company / Chief Elected Officer  – Industry Association
 
"I recently heard you speak at our company and was inspired by what you had to say. I simply wanted to thank you for your time and energy and the pearls of wisdom that I took from you that day. Your enthusiasm for leadership reminded me of one of my favorite quotes, which is filled with hope: `What would that life be like if we had equal faith in that part of us which was fading away ... as that part of us which was growing.'"
