What people say about... Bob Hooey

"We greatly appreciate the energy and effort you put into researching and adapting your keynote to make it more meaningful to our member councils. Early feedback from our delegates indicates that this year's convention was one of our most successful events yet, and we thank you for your contribution to this success."
Larry Goodhope, Executive Director
Alberta Association of Municipal Districts & Counties

"Thank you Bob, it is always a pleasure to see a true professional at work. You have made the name "Speaker" stand out as a truism - someone who encourages people to examine their lives and make adjustments. The personal stories you shared with your audience made such a great impression on everyone. The comments indicated you hit people right where it is important - in their hearts. Each of those in your audience took away a new feeling of personal success and encouragement."
Sherry Knight, Dimensi
on Eleven Human Resources and Communications

"You are a dynamic speaker and you provided us with many ideas for making our business's more successful with your presentation of "Unlock Your Business Potential." The comments we received from the meeting were very positive. Many especially found it useful to record some key points on the postcard and will look forward to receiving it prior to your next session."
Barb Nicholl, Woman's AM

"What a great conference. It was a great pleasure meeting with you at the Ritz Carlton, Cancun and I shall look forward to hopefully welcoming you and your family in Dublin, Ireland someday."
A. Paul Ryan, Petronva Corporation, Dublin, Ireland

"Now that the Active Minds session for Chapters has drawn to a close, I want to thank you for all you have done to help make the program such a success.

Feedback from the store Managers, and directly from customers, was entirely enthusiastic. Their remarks and words of appreciation have made it obvious that everyone who participated in your courses benefited enormously from your intelligence and insights. Your energy, creativity, and ability to communicate effectively - especially with such a diverse audience and under conditions that are so noticeably less than ideal -make your efforts all the more impressive and praiseworthy. I know, as do all I work with at Chapters, just how indebted we are to you.

My thanks are double-barreled... you have made it possible for me to provide a program that is of real value to the public - and you have made the task of organizing and implementing this program pure pleasure."
Suzy Okun, National Co-coordinator, Chapters Active Minds Series

"Wonderfully done! Very interesting, lots of practical ideas along with a number of ideas to get me thinking, not just about time management, but about Life Management."
Deborah Black, YWMC

Janet Bell, Coordinator Yukon Economic Forums

Cindy Kindred, Training Manager, Silk FM Radio

"'I'm already running as fast as I can!' was both informative and entertaining. It reinforces the ideas of goal setting and effective time management as it applies to one's business and personal life. The information given strengthens the perspective that it's all-important and productive to lead a balanced life, so work does not dominate our life. The culminating problem-solving activity was enjoyable and beneficial, and showed that through networking with business associates, problems can be readily resolved. Keep up the good work!"
Jeffery Miller, CKD NKBA Arizona Chapter

Chuck & Joan Guild, Uni-Pro Printing & Design, Burnaby, BC
