On behalf of the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce and the Business Week Committee I would like to thank you for your inspiring delivery of “Win-Win Thinking in a Win-Lose World”.

It is a perennial challenge for us to get a high quality speaker who can address a crowd as diverse as the one we had for our Business Week Kick Off Breakfast. You not only did a great job. You hit a homerun! The feedback from your keynote address has been extremely positive - well balanced with the right mixture of humour, business lessons, storytelling and motivation. Without a doubt you set the tone for a Business Week that will make a difference for all participants here in our community.

Once again Grant, thank you so much for coming to Sarnia Lambton and delivering
such a motivational message.

Our field staff from across Canada were pleasantly surprised with the How To Give Great Customer Service seminar. They’ve done various personality trait assessments in the past, but they really connected and identified with the shape characterization for personality assessment. It was entertaining but most importantly it will resonate with them at each and every farm they visit for some time. Our people learned a lot about themselves, their own strengths and weaknesses, and thinking of the special people in their lives who have been very important in their personal development. We were very impressed how you could address the crowd for 4-hours, and keep the undivided attention of the entire group as you spoke with minimal notes or multi-media dependence. You drew on real-life day-to-day examples for which our people could easily relate to.

Your talk on serving customers in the field was very much appreciated and reminded our field staff how their customer service skills and passion for the business can deteriorate over time if they don’t make efforts to revitalize themselves throughout their careers. One other segment that was particularly beneficial was forgive and forget. The concept that you must forgive and forget, not for the benefit of the other person, but for yourself in releasing the burden and negative that is dwelling inside. I believe our staff learned a lot in a short period of time that will help them immensely in both personal well-being and serving customers. Thanks again Grant for the great day!

Thank you again for your presentation in Montreal last month. The group was entertained by your talk on Triangles and Circles. It helped us promote our business with them. One of the group commented that they were having fun referring to each other’s personality shape…the next day. …your seminar has made you and Strategic Seminars an important resource for our company…

We have received nothing but positive and superlative comments on your ability to discuss sophisticated technology applications… your easy going manner, clarity of speech and your ability to allow the “average” individual to understand…We look forward to sharing the podium with you and your associates, once again, in the near future

I would highly recommend Grant Fairley of Strategic Seminars. He is one of the best presenters I’ve seen in his ability to engage an audience and invoke their contribution. His presentations have the right balance of content and “real life” application examples that make them entertaining, educational and relevant…I have always left Grant’s presentations inspired and with something new and valuable to bring back to my workplace and clients.
