Testimonials – Keynote Presentations for Finance and Insurance

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.

"Over the past 32 years, we have hired hundreds of speakers around the globe; many considered to be best of the best. Personally, for me, Warren’s Story is beyond compare. But it is in meeting this man, and how every time I see him or speak to him, he has an attitude that is always positive and exciting. I would place Warren in the Top 10 in the World for Motivational speaking, and we have had Presidents, Mayors, actors, activists, political and religious leaders, and everyone in between."

"Warren, you were warmly embraced with a standing ovation before you even reached the stage! Your message of perception and determination deeply touched the entire audience. It has renewed and reenergized our sales force to reach for new heights. We are so excited to have you work with us again. Climb on!"


Laura Rodrigues

"Warren delivered an important message in an engaging way that really connected with our audience. He made an outstanding contribution in being the catalyst for our people to reflect on and take control of their own circumstances, and had a material impact on the success of our conference."


Margaret Willis
European Head of Wealth Management / HSBC Bank

"I can’t believe three months have passed since you spoke at our Convention. I want to personally thank you once again for helping make our 2009 conference in Palm Desert a huge success. In case you couldn’t tell by the standing ovation from our 1400 attendees, they too found great value in your message and ranked you as one of our best speakers ever. Not bad considering we’ve had over 60 speakers in the last twenty years."


Susan Tumback, CMP
Senior Event Management Specialist / Sun Life Financial

"The relevance, clarity and poignancy of your presentation and subsequent conversations with our people has helped us refocus on the tasks we have to complete and bought the team closer together. We cannot recommend highly enough to any other organization the benefits of engaging you to speak with them."


Steven Peacock
General Manager, Manufacturer & Dealer Relations / Motability Finance Limited

"Truly outstanding and inspirational. Warren had dinner with us after the event and I spoke to his taxi driver who had only met Warren the previous day. The driver had been so inspired meeting Warren and hearing a little of his story he had called his friends and family to share his story. Incredibly personally impactful."


Graham Hodgkins
Regional Wealth Director / HSBC

"Did he deliver? Yes and then some! Warren's presentation exceeded our expectations!"


Lisa Stille

"It was a pleasure having Warren at our meeting. He is one of the most effective speakers that I have listened to. He has a unique ability to deliver his powerful message in an authentic and down to earth style. The attendees felt privileged that Warren made the effort above and beyond his speaking commitment to be a part of the event. I have and will keep recommending Warren."

"I want to let you know that you did an outstanding job at our 5th Annual Health Care Provider Conference. The audience was engaged and you had them glued to every word. You drew people in and held their attention with your heartrending story. There were tears- people were emotionally touched. They were also inspired. You provided the spark needed for them to move into the remaining sessions with energy and focus. Many of our attendees expressed that your presentation was the highlight of the conference. Comments included appreciation for your authenticity and genuine passion for helping others maintain perspective. Two messages really stuck out for us. “You create your own reality" and "When you change the way you see the world you change the world." These two messages reinforced for attendees that people are responsible for their own situation and that it is up to us individually to decide how we are going react. With this message fresh in their minds I have no doubt it will impact their practice and influence how they interact with their clients."


Geoff Dalmer
Health Care Services Program Manager / Worksafe BC

"Since Warren presented very early during our conference, members of the audience were "jazzed" and even more excited for the rest that was to come. Warren was professional and worked hard to understand and meet our expectations. I would recommend Warren to anyone who is seeking an inspirational message about dealing with change."


Derek Hazeltine
Executive Director / Professional Liability Underwriting Society

"Warren was awesome, it was an absolute pleasure working with him. He was extremely easy to work with and was flexible with any small changes made. He was perfect for this event and incorporated the conference theme of ‘Discover What You’re Made Of’ throughout his entire presentation. Warren joined our group for their Awards Dinner after his session which was a highlight for everyone as they got to spend some quality time with Warren. I would recommend Warren to any group looking for a top motivational and inspirational speaker."
