Testimonials – Keynote Presentations for Education

By living and breathing change management and sharing a gripping story of facing hurdles that seem insurmountable, Warren sets himself apart. He walks the talk, and that is the secret to his natural ability to connect with, and move people on an intellectual and emotional level. Read some of Warren's reviews from past clients.

"Warren adapted his message and voice to the synchronous, online environment incredibly adeptly. His web presence is remarkably energetic and authentic. Warren's message effortlessly draws interest; our database grew more from our event with Warren than any other single event we've hosted. Our registrant surveys reflected rave reviews. Warren is just pretty freaking amazing. I highly recommend working with him in an online setting."


James Ure
Co-Founder and Headmaster / Williamsburg Academy

"Warren helped staff who were feeling discouraged to see their situations in a different way. They are now more motivated and work better as a team."


Wendy Simer
Executive Assistant / InterMountain ESD

"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."


Jenny Chapman
Sponsorship & Event Manager / Alberta HR Conference

"Warren's presentation was nothing short of inspiring. Our group consists of highly accomplished management and professional staff working for the University of British Columbia. They can be a tough audience to say the least, but Warren completely captured them with his energy, conviction and the undeniable truth of his message, "when you change the way you see the world, you CHANGE the world"."


Jasmin Harry
Member Services Association of Administrative Staff / The University of British Columbia

"Finally, in contrast to the rah-rah of many motivational speakers, I found your approach and style to be refreshing and highly credible with a particularly sophisticated and sometimes skeptical audience."


Kirk Hill
Executive Director / SFU Business Career Management Centre

"Warren, after hearing you speak to our new MBA students at their orientation last year, we just knew that we had to have you back again this year. Your insight, wisdom and inspiration are greatly appreciated."


Alina Yukhymets
Associate Director, MBA Programs Office / The University of British Columbia

"For those facing the challenge of change, and let’s face it; who isn’t; I can’t recommend Warren Macdonald highly enough. A new perspective, an “expanding of the mind” is what we were looking for, and that’s exactly what Warren delivered. Warren understood us from the outset, capturing the audience’s full attention from the first word to the last. As teachers, we often feel misunderstood, so the effort Warren made to connect with us was not only greatly appreciated but made for an exceptional experience that literally knocked our socks off." 


Mark Ramsankar
Alberta Teachers’ Association

"I cannot walk down the hall at IU 13 without hearing rave reviews of the morning and especially your message. “I admire your fortitude, conviction and manner in which you have risen to the challenge of your circumstances. As I mentioned in my address that morning, “You never really know what kind of difference you made in someone’s like.“ I want you to know that there is no doubt that you have made a positive difference in the lives of those at IU 13."
