“Vince facilitated a roundtable event for our clients titled, “The Legacy Leader: Maximizing Your Influence in the Workplace.” The thought-provoking information he provided, coupled with his winning presentation style, was greatly appreciated by those who attended. Our participants commented that his information kept the discussion going long after the event ended, and really sparked thoughtful, personal reflection. I highly recommend Vince’s program for keynotes, training events, employee retreats, and values-centered meetings.”Carol Albert, HR Recruiter, Manpower Group
“Mr. Reardon’s keynote ‘Leaderships Lessons from America’s Most Successful People’ was full of take-away lessons from the lives of real people. The story of the cop who survived the collapse of the Twin Towers on 9/11 was riveting. Instead of immediately escaping the collapsing building, the cop remained behind to assist an office worker down the stairs. Fortunately, both survived. There wasn’t a dry eye in the banquet room. Mr. Reardon is both inspiring and entertaining; not an easy mix. I would recommend his presentation to anyone who is hungry for a message of courage, compassion, and hope.”Dan Conway, Director, Public Relations, Teradata Corp.
“Public speaking is not something I especially enjoy. Whenever I have to give an important speech, my first call is to Vince. After working with him, I now speak with more commitment, I deliver messages more clearly, and I feel more in control. Others have noted my improvement as well. Vince is a very experienced professional speaker and a delight to work with.”Pauline Martinson, Executive Director, I Love A Clean San Diego
“Vince gave a motivational speech about three inspiring individuals that had overcame big challenges but ultimately triumphed. He was extremely well received and many members said they wished he could have spoken longer than his assigned time. If you are looking for an entertaining but thought-provoking keynote speaker, I am delighted to recommend Vince.”Bruce L. Goodwin, Goodwin & Associates, International Society Of Hospitality Consultants
“Speaking on your feet is like trying to catch beads of mercury — easy in concept, difficult in execution. I retained Vince to teach this elusive skill to my graduate students. Vince introduced a simple three-step program which the class quickly grasped. Judging from student feedback, their time with Vince was both valuable and productive. I will definitely have him back.”Ines Kraft, Administrative Director, MSRE Program, School of Business Administration at the University of San Diego
“English is my second language, so I feel awkward speaking in business situations. When I’m called upon to give a speech, a presentation or facilitate a meeting, it’s nerve wracking. Vince has helped me get to the point more quickly, use stories to get my ideas across, and control my nerves. Today I feel more comfortable and confident when speaking in front of others. If Vince can help me, he can help you too.”Joaquin Prado, Director of Technical Operations, Open Mobile Alliance
“Many employees can give a speech or a presentation if you give them a week or two to prepare. But ask them to speak in front of others on the fly — forget it! They can’t do it. That’s where Vince’s The Art of Speaking on Your Feet workshop comes to the rescue. His workshop is immersive, instructional and fun. I’ve seen shy, tongue-tied employees turn into confident, assertive communicators by the end of the training day. ”Chet French, Associate Director, Training, PPD
“Vince Reardon spoke to our association about the importance of making a difference in the world. He reminded us and urged us to leave a legacy that we could be proud of in our work and personal lives. He spoke about three individuals from his book ‘Legacy’ who struggled with difficult challenges that they ultimately overcame. Mr. Reardon reminded us of the abiding need for audacity, integrity and persistence in leading a good life. Outside of church, you do not often hear such inspiring, values-based speeches. I recommend Vince Reardon if you are looking for a keynote message with a difference.”Gene W. James, Former ASIS Regional Vice President and Chapter Chair, American Society Of International Security
