Howard Putnam was the best professional speaker I have ever had the privilege to work with. He has a solid understanding of our industry and our business goals. His style is one that makes you want to listen. His views on people, vision and ethics are sorely needed today. If you want to begin or end your conference with an everlasting bang, Howard Putnam is your man.
Howard helped our leaders get out of our "box" by discussing challenges and difficult changes that the airlines industry and certain companies have gone through and how they succeeded (or failed). It was an easy leap to see how the business challenges they faced have similarities to our own, and how strong, inspirational leadership rises above the challenges to ensure success. Further, his message is one of not just accepting change and playing the game as we know it, but rather rising to the challenge and changing the way the game is played. From his personal stories and with his charming wit, Howard inspired us all to give our very best every day and enjoy ourselves while we're doing it.
I've always appreciated Howard Putnam's honesty and ethical approach. He shows you pathways to resolve difficulties with many constituencies during good and difficult times.
Our folks have not stopped talking about your speech. They are revering you as a truly authentic leader. Thank you so much for helping make our event a success.
Howard, thank you for your enlightening presentation you gave to the La-Z-Boy leadership group. We wanted to leave our team on a high, and you certainly helped us achieve that with your inspiring and motivational remarks. Your presentation about keeping things simple, never losing your values and having a little luck all resonated with our organisation, and it was delivered with such self-effacing humour that everyone could relate to the story and successes you've experienced in your life and career. Thanks for helping to make our leadership meeting a huge success.
It was a real pleasure having you join us. Your remarks were great and we have received many positive comments. Thank you for taking the time to prepare. It was obvious you took the time to get to know us.
Thanks for coming to the meeting and thanks for the great presentation. You made a big impact on the group, the feedback from the audience was uniformly positive. And yes, the team left on a 'high'.
Howard Putnam is a powerful speaker who can relate to his audience through his perspective into the culture of an organisation and humorous introspect.
