Lee, thank you for your tremendous presentation. We were all inspired by your lessons - I referenced many of them during my address to the whole team after your departure. Once again, I thank you for stepping in on such short notice and delivering such a powerful and well-received presentation.

Lee Colan is a passionate, persuasive and empowering speaker. Recently, he spoke at one of my leadership team meetings where part of our focus was on professional development. His thorough preparation resulted in a "spot-on session." He incorporated the theme of our meeting directly into his presentation; connected with us individually and as a cohesive team; and taught us how to manage the demands for our leadership attention even more effectively. Lee's astute perspective on the ways and means to accomplish more goals and be more productive resulted in overwhelming positive feedback from the attendees. Furthermore, his interpersonal skills and dynamic presentation style inspired us all, making him one of our most relevant and memorable speakers. Thank you!

Lee, wow, what a great presentation you delivered for the American Society of Training and Development! Thank you for kicking off this workshop with great energy and application. We had so many positive comments and we appreciated you returning to participant in the panel discussion. You are the best!

I was just amazed with your capacity for adjusting! With rushing to Singapore, getting your luggage delayed, rushing to buy appropriate clothing for your conference presentation, delivering your keynote only three hours after landing, and finally winning the entire audience of 400 leaders with your candid narration, meaningful content and wit! That was breathless for me!

Wilfred James

Lee was terrific and very motivational! His remarks were spot on regarding our approach to change. It was like he has been in our meetings all week, he really understands what we are going through, Amazing!.

Thank you for speaking at our Association meeting. With over 300 professionals in attendance, it takes a dynamic and knowledgeable speaker to captivate the audience. Your presentation was nothing short of excellent!  Your ability to effectively communicate to audiences of all sizes is a unique talent and one that I value highly.

As the keynote speaker at our recent executive leadership development session, Lee Colan was a huge success.  He was able to connect with the audience, share meaningful insights, and inspire our leaders to action.  His willingness to understand his audience and tailor his message to meet our needs made his presentation even more valuable.  Lee truly walks the talk...delivering a clear, simple message that hits home and is applicable to all.

Lee is, perhaps, one of the most gifted presenters – one cannot help but be impressed having heard him speak.  Lee is a credible, helpful, and quite interesting resource.  For a Ph.D., Lee doesn't pile it higher and deeper.  Actually, Lee is a regular guy without all the fluff.  He can walk the talk and what he says really will help you, if you'll just walk along on his path.

I always look forward to Lee Colan’s executive briefings – his topics are timely, his style is engaging and his message always lends itself to immediate practical application.  I always take away some nugget of information that I can use immediately within my organization.

Brad Kimball
Sr. Vice President, Human Resources

Lee is an excellent speaker.  He is always well prepared and speaks with much enthusiasm and strong presence.  He is very professional in his style of speaking and very knowledgeable in his area of expertise, which is organization development and corporate dynamics.

Gary Siegel
Executive Vice President, Human Resources

Lee seems to have the rare quality of bringing new insights to what seems to many of us as ongoing business issues.  His points are always specific and relevant, not to mention very much logical and practical.

Joe Bosch
Chief Human Resources Officer
DIRECTV

Lee Colan has the ability to breakdown complex organizational dynamics and come up with a systematic framework for implementing practical solutions.

Lane Kramer
President
The CEO Institute

Lee has an innate ability to deliver very strong messages, strategies and solutions in a very straightforward and simple manner.  He does not consume you with esoteric buzz words and ambiguity.

Jason K. Whitehair
Vice President, Human Resources
LHP Hospital Group

Lee Colan had his work cut out for him when he came to speak to Hunt's executive staff about "sticking to it".  The room was filled with engineers, accountants, tax accountants and attorneys, certainly one of the most analytical groups you could imagine.  The group had developed a wonderful strategic plan for growth but for some reason the growth wasn't following the plan.  Lee's presentation combined excellent visuals along with amusing but to the point anecdotes to convince the group that the "Art of Adherence" does make the difference between reaching your goal or not.  He made a room full of believers that day.

Terri Woods
Vice President
Hunt Petroleum Corp.

In the 45 minutes that Lee spoke I received more information than hours of class and seminars.  One pagers and templates that Lee uses are great for directing the thought process but they require active participation which personalizes the information.

These types of presentations and sessions are usually worthless and everyone goes just for the food, however in your case I have to say that "the meat" was not just on the plate. In other words, it was a VERY worthwhile use of my time.

David Lloyd

I commend you on an outstanding presentation.  The material was spot on and usable in the real world.

Jack Brooks

You put on an impressive and cogent presentation! First class. On the unsolicited front...I recommend you consider creating and selling books/tapes, and find yourself a speaker's agent. You've obviously got what it takes to compete with the keynote crowd.

Thank you for inviting me to the briefing. I found it to be very interesting and informative. It is not often that one hears from Yoda, Eripides and Rocky in the same presentation! I can see why you have such raving fans in the business community.
