Chris McIntyre has an exceptional ability to connect with very different audiences. He conducted seminars for us at our corporate office in Vermont and at our distribution and call center in Roanoke, two very different groups. Chris’s wit and exceptional knowledge of his material captured the attention of both groups immediately and he held that throughout the day. It’s been a year since his visit to Vermont, and I still hear comments about his presentation. I look forward to the opportunity to hear Chris again.

I attended your seminar expecting a “content deficient” motivational program…and I walked away with a bunch of “Ivy League” quality business school ideas that were delivered in a session that was very motivating!

Our students rated Chris the 2nd most effective speaker we’ve had all year.  The most effective speaker was Sam King, a Hall of Fame Quarterback & Alum, who held the school’s records before Randall Cunningham broke them.   No one could beat out Sam King.  Chris was very motivational and professional and impartial – he didn’t push and was objective in delivery.  We want Chris back!!!
