Expert on the most important subject

Harvey knows emotional intelligence is the top key to success. He has dedicated his time to understand and appreciate the subject, and he gave our group the benefit of his years of study. Harvey provided us with several easy-to-follow points to raise awareness of things we can do to begin raising EQ. His simple common sense language cut through what could have been an advanced psychology seminar. At the same time, Harvey made it clear that this presentation is just a starting point in one very important life-journey. "The unexamined life is not worth living" - Socrates

“Harvey Deutschendorf recently spoke to the Society of Emotional Intelligence in Jacksonville, Florida and shared with us why EI skills are now the most desired workplace skills moving forward as announced by the World Economic Council. His genuine delivery engaged the participants and enabled engagement honestly and comfortably for our members. Harvey’s personal accounts and stories allowed participants to access the concepts more easily. Mr. Deutschendorf was also kind enough to stay, speak to individuals and address their questions as well as sign his books for hours afterwards. We are a better chapter for his visit.”

Top Notch Presentation

"Harvey Deutschendorf's presentation at Convention about emotional intelligence was very moving. He suggested effective ways to improve our own skill sets to communicate and how to be with others. These tools are an asset in the business world and in personal relationships as well. Harvey's engaging manner, humour and personal stories were inspirational and touching."
