Speakers Connect Showcases stage the most inspiring speaker from all over the world.  Tremendous feedbacks from attendees of our previous events:

The seminar was very thought-provoking, excellent speakers, just the right length, gave food for thought and I left a better person from when I arrived. I also met some great people, so a good networking opportunity.

This is the first time I had the opportunity to attend Speakers Connect Showcase.  I was very pleased with the mix of speakers whose similar expertise yet different content and delivery style provides a well rounded perspective.  Mike Walsh was particularly polished with impressive content however I was able to gain knowledge from all of the speakers. Thanks a million for arranging our attendance.

I am amazed that Speakers Connect was able to bring six extremely effective and very different speakers together in one half-day event. Four of our team attended and we all felt it was extremely worthwhile.  We learned a lot, not only about the various topics, but also about presentation skills. We each came away with several important new ideas, often different ones, that we picked up. Thank you very much.
