‘He was informative, interactive and funny'
As a meeting planner, I really appreciated Gary going the extra mile to talk to various members in preparation for his opening kick-off keynote session of our annual meeting, to find out about their real-world ‘pains’ and what they wanted to get out of his address. Members described his presentation on their evaluations quite enthusiastically: ‘Best opening session’, ‘Great way to open’, Great interaction’, ‘He was informative, interactive and funny'.
Gary would be a wonderful addition to any group's agenda.
I attended an educational conference recently and thought ‘Oh, another round of boring speakers,’ but Gary Hernbroth was anything but that. Funny, warm, and engaging were just a few of the comments I heard from other attendees after his session concluded. If you are looking for someone to inspire your attendees, Gary would be a wonderful addition to any group's agenda.
I reached out to Gary with the intention of adding some excitement to our annual meeting as well as to integrate applied business techniques to improve our current operator's business models. Throughout this experience, he was more than an event planner could hope for!
Gary took the time to ask thoughtful questions, listened to what type of group I had and also tailored our event to our unique learning environment. Being that our business owners are legally blind and range from partial impairment to total impairment, he was able to add the dimension of physical experience to our seminar.
During my time planning this large event I had my share of hurdles and obstacles but Gary was able to make me feel like his area was solid during the entire planning process and execution. It was wonderful how well he communicated things so there were no surprises. There was no need for me worry about his part of our weekend. He truly made a potentially stressful weekend flawless and superseded the expectation of a really hard-to-impress group. Gary gave a group that thought he had nothing new that they did not already know from their 30+ years' experience a breath of fresh air, an arsenal of ideas, and golden nuggets to take back to their business.
