“Ron Taylor did an outstanding job leading the November 18, 2011 Leadership Breakfast in Reston, VA. His topic was “What the Dog Saw” and, through this humorous perspective, Ron facilitated a highly interactive discussion about how we learn from leaders based not on what they do, but on what we see. The overwhelming feedback after the session was that it was both informative and fun for our group of seasoned leaders. I highly recommend Ron to any group looking for an outstanding speaker.”
– Allan Croll, CEO eKnow, Inc.
“I was unable to attend your June 2010 PMI WDC dinner speaking engagement entitled, “The Leader in the Mirror”, but just finished watching a video of it on the PMIWDC website. Please know that I have never been moved to send an email like this before, but I enjoyed your talk so much I had to take a moment to thank you for this wonderful presentation. It was the best and most helpful PMIWDC presentation that I’ve seen or attended in person.
Again, sincere thanks for sharing these insights and lessons in leadership. Your presentation is a gem, and I am very happy that PMIWDC captured it for the enjoyment and inspiration of those who were unable to attend that evening.”
– Rich Manegio, Director Product and Partner Services, Symantec Corp
“I just wanted to send a note of appreciation for your presentation for my MBA class. Your skills and experience as a leader shone through, and the students were very interested in what you had to say. It is rare to find someone who has been such a successful “doer” and can translate that experience into a compelling presentation, but you managed to accomplish just that. Your stories were an excellent balance to your experience. Pacing and timing were perfect. All in all, it was a very engaging and powerful presentation!”
– Dr. Barbara Hoopes, Virginia Tech
