Testimonials 4

  • “To speak on the topic of employee engagement and retention, we selected Richard Hadden to provide a closing keynote address on the first day of our conference. Mr. Hadden provided pertinent, actionable information that was right on target for our group. He demonstrated a vast depth of knowledge in the area of human dynamics and personal interaction in the workplace. I personally feel that his in-depth preparatory work to understand our corporation and our business model was a major key to his success with our group.”

  • “I want to thank you for the terrific keynote that you provided for Pioneer last week. It was hard for me to think that you could top the retrospective that you gave us for our 25th anniversary, but you did it for our 40th. You kept our crew engaged throughout – no easy task! Having experienced 39 of the 40 years of Pioneer’s history, I can attest to the accuracy, perspective and passion of your encore performance for us this year. The energy you spent researching for your time with us clearly made the difference between a good presentation and a great one. The level of detail of your preparation was clearly demonstrated in the poem that you composed that included the names of everyone in the room (and more), as well as that of our clients. We have shared the poem with all in attendance, by popular request.”
