"Warren's ability to force us to step back and look at 'how' we view our current challenges was powerful. He has already helped us to start to tackle some of these challenges that we simply complained about prior. We now have a renewed sense of our own ability to view them differently and dismantle them 'one step, one peak, one wave' at a time!"

Vice President Strategy and Development / Stuart Olson
"Three years later, our leaders still speak about our offsite and how impactful your participation was in seeing the possibility of transformation. We needed to see that if we wanted another outcome, we had to change the way we looked at ourselves and our future and commit to doing something about it."
General Dynamics Canada
"No testimonial I can give will do justice to what you brought to our Annual Franchise Partner Conference this year. I had the highest of expectations after booking you and completing the pre-event call yet you absolutely blew those expectations out of the water. I believe you received the only standing ovation of our three day event because you went out of your way to customize the message not only based on the details I'd given you earlier but also on the information you gleaned from attending several sessions earlier in the day. I have never seen a more captivated and inspired audience or a more dedicated speaker. Thanks Warren for helping to make this our highest rated conference yet!"

Your outlook on life and positive views on change were truly inspiring, because of your words we will continue to "change the way we see the world. Thank you for taking time to visit Philadelphia. You were such a pleasure to work with, we wish you continued success and hope to see you soon!"

"It is difficult to sum up in a few words the positive feedback we received from Warren's presentation and the lasting "can do" impression his story has left with us. Warren spoke to our Leadership group with passion and professionalism. He took the time to learn about our organization and understood our business goals; linking his experiences with the challenges we face in order to show us just what is possible when we face our fears and act with intent. Warren's story, told in a unique, captivating style provided lessons of lasting value that we continue to reflect on long after hearing him speak. Thank you Warren, for leaving us with such an encouraging and positive sense of realization that we can succeed, even when confronted with obstacles that at first appear to be insurmountable."

"It has been several months now since you spoke to our sales team in Seattle and I wanted to let you know that your compelling presentation has had both a meaningful and lasting impact on our group. Our team has set a huge goal; some would say insurmountable. After hearing you speak the goal seemed highly attainable by all. Many said, If he can accomplish what he has, I'll never complain again we can do this! By speaking directly to us, by drawing parallels linking your challenges to ours, you have fostered a belief in self within our team that has strengthened our resolve to turn our goals into reality."
Regional VP Sales, Western Region / Dex
"There's no doubt now we made the right choice. Your keynote was the talking point for the remainder of the conference; people were truly inspired. Actually, they weren't just inspired. You helped them reassess the way they see things, and taught them how to look for the opportunities present in uncertain times. Your message really hit home for us and I think is relevant for any group or organization facing uncertainty and change. We loved working with you Warren and would recommend you for any speaking engagement. We would certainly book you again should the opportunity arise."
Sponsorship & Event Manager / Alberta HR Conference

Zone Vice President / LensCrafters
“Warren Macdonald’s presentation was definitely a highlight of our 2018 Conference & Trade Show. His presentation on Banking Resilience taught audience members that we all can learn to develop a resilient mindset and attitude to help us recover more quickly from setbacks or difficult changes. Warren’s talk was powerful and had audience members lining up for a “personally signed” book following the session. Comments on “A Test Of Will” speak of a book which is so engrossing, you won’t be able to put it down!”
Education Manager / Fraser Valley Real Estate Board
“You contributed enormously to our event and to the final showdown. Truly appreciate all the effort you put into it.”
