Your business keynote presentation was without a doubt one of the best (I dare say the best) we have ever heard at the plant, and believe me, we have heard many over the years.
In my 34 years of service with IBM, I had never seen a speaker receive a standing ovation at our corporate event, and here our staff and the management team gave you 3 in the same day, at each of your 3 speeches.
I would like to thank you and offer my heartfelt congratulations.
Assistant to the Bromont manufacturing director
Canadian Armed Forces | From the Commander’s cabinet:
We wish to thank you for your contribution to the professional development of the 35th brigade group of Canada in the context of our annual conference.
Your message was undeniably compelling and certainly motivated the entire team of soldiers and leaders. I am thankful you took the time to learn about our organization in order to customize your presentation to our needs. The feedback we received from participants confirms the event was a success.
They commended your performance and even shared what they retained after the conference. Their responses confirm that the message you sent was well received. Your positive energy is contagious and your stage presence, engaging. Participants felt inspired to be better workers, but they also felt compelled to be better people.
The concepts you shared were accessible and will undoubtedly help our soldiers and leaders face challenges and relativize problems.
It is without hesitation that I recommend you to any organization that promotes teamwork. On behalf of the 35th brigade group of Canada, as well as on my personal behalf, I thank you.

I wanted to thank you for the 3 keynotes you presented at the Canadian Payroll Association annual event this year.
We very much appreciated the fact that you adapted the content of your keynote to the challenges and reality of our industry—it made your presentation resonate with the audience. Our members gave excellent reviews in their evaluations, in turn making this event a success.
As the organizer for this event, I was grateful for your professionalism, which I noted from our initial contact. It was a real pleasure organizing this event with you (and you made it easy!).
I would recommend you to any organizer looking to host a successful event!
I wanted to take a moment to share our thanks and satisfaction with regard to your keynote “At the Pinnacle of Your Possibilities”, presented last June at our annual conference at the Fairmont Resort.
We appreciate the fact that you adapted the content of your talk and provided a tailored event for our conference. You were able to find the right words and appropriate anecdotes to engage our actuaries from across the country. Your energy was great, as was your stage presence. On the whole, this was an inspiring talk!
Thank you and looking forward to seeing you again!

I would like to take a few moments to express my gratitude for the speech you gave at Bombardier Aerospace.
Last December, the Speakers Bureau invited me to attend four speeches on the future needs of our corporation. You were definitely my favourite that day. Your dynamic presence and the way in which you used your own experiences to make us stop and reflect reached me at my deepest core values.
I therefore chose to use your services for our quarterly meeting with the entire management team from the Bombardier Aerospace St. Laurent Plant.
Once again, your speech went beyond my own expectations and those of the management team. The audience remained attentive for the duration of the meeting, which is quite the feat within our corporation. We received a lot of positive feedback and a few of the managers told me that it was the best speech they had heard in five years.
I would like to thank you once again for the energy that you instilled in our group, which brought us back to the values that drive our corporation.

I chose Stephan to inspire my team as part of a New Year’s initiative. I wanted my team to be better equipped to face challenges, not only in their professional lives, but also in their personal lives.
Employees at all levels of the organization were impacted by Stephan’s testimonial and narrative. His keynote was interactive and the examples he shared were engaging.
I continue to use Stephan’s concepts when I am working with my team and believe this helps me deliver my messages in a positive and constructive way.
I want to thank Stephan for sharing his story, his positive energy and attitude and for being such an inspiring person!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the 2 captivating talks that you gave to our leaders and employees earlier this year. Both of your keynote presentations were inspiring and had a profound impact on our perception and how we can better react in various situations.
You have a unique ability to keep everyone’s attention and to bring people together. I heard some wonderful comments following your presentations including: Deep, funny, entertaining, real and motivating.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience. Both of our meetings were definitely a success and were very much appreciated by the employees that attended.
I am convinced that our organisation will benefit from what you taught us for a long time.
I would definitely recommend you to others who are looking for an inspiring and engaging speaker.
