Testimonials 4

  • “As a keynote speaker, Tom Morris is unique in his ability to listen to me as a client, really listen, and understand my needs so well that he can custom tailor his presentations for maximum positive impact. Anyone can see from his videos the combination of energy, humor, and wisdom that wins over audiences, but what’s even more important is his rare capacity to use his intellectual abilities to serve his clients in a deep and productive way. He doesn’t just show up and give a talk; he brings a customized gift to each member of his audience, a gift of just the right insights that we can use right away to make a difference in our business and in our lives. Anyone who hesitates asking this philosopher to open or close their meeting needs to talk to me.”

    Philip A. Newbold

    President, Memorial Hospital, South Bend, IN

  • “Your name has been mentioned so many times over the past few days in conversations, emails, texts, etc. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you and all that you did for my agents, staff and management. They mean the world to me and you brightened not only their day, but their lives from this point forward.”

    Tim Milam

    President, Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty

  • “Tom, you absolutely crushed it. It was great to see the people swamp you near the stage and it was a smart way to finish the program with the conference ending on your last words. I can tell you definitively that you were the highlight of the program! I look forward to working with you more in the future and would enjoy hearing about some of your personal coaching programs.”
