Motivational Speaker Eileen McDargh's Testimonials


"It was certainly a pleasure not only to meet you, but to hear your presentation at our Annual Sales Meeting. I received numerous comments on how much everyone enjoyed listing to you, as well as receiving useful tools to help us all in our everyday life, at both our workplaces and our home lives. I believe there were several portions of your speech that each and everyone of us could take home in the hopes to get a better “grip on life."


"What a great event for the First Cobalt Women’s Summit and I attribute it mostly to the energy, verve, professionalism and presence of Eileen McDargh. Thank you for connecting Cobalt with such a powerhouse.

Our employees were captivated by her energy level, by the wisdom she conveyed and by the emotional attachment she created with the group. Additionally, her ideas to pull together the event and mediate the panel worked well and were quite effective with the audience.

We loved working with Eileen and we look forward to continuing our relationship with her in the future. I recommend her highly as a motivational/inspirational speaker for any group."


"On behalf of the Northrop Grumman management Club, I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for your wonderful presentation at both of our Dinner Meetings. It was a challenge with the events of September 11th, though with your flexibility with the dates you helped make it happen. Your conversation/thinking model was both practical and profound, and I had the opportunity to quote you in my last Board of Control Meeting. Your story of you WWII Air Force pilot mother added a special dimension for all of us. You made us laugh as well as cry, and in the end you even brought us to our feet."


"Thank you for a superb presentation at the UAW-Ford National Joint Programs Conference. Your energy was limitless, your ability to absorb our information and become “one of us” was phenomenal, and your message was right on. It touched squarely on the events that are taking place in our program and our company at this time."


"The feedback from both 3M participants (employees & spouses) and more importantly, our customer guests, was consistent and very positive—timely, uplifting, necessary, worthwhile, refreshing, fast paced, and lots of fun."


"What a wonderful and meaningful day-long retreat! The presentation was well-crafted to suit our personal needs as caregivers and demonstrated insight of “resiliency needs” while caring for the sick day after day. Our deepest thanks for the gifts of spirit you brought to us; we will never be the same again."


"I want to express my deepest gratitude and thank you from the bottom of my heart for the amazing presentation you shared with the ICF OC Chapter. Your stories were relevant, your wisdom was profound and your delivery inspired and energized us. We all really appreciated the time and energy that it took to customize the presentation for our group and the feedback we received confirms that you have truly started off our year with a gift that really matters. I wish you great success this year and please know that you are very welcome to come visit our chapter at any time.""


"I want to thank you again for making Assistance League National Conference such a great success. What outstanding presentations! You left our attendees energized, excited and with a fresh perspective for looking at their life and volunteer work. The information you provided was practical, thought provoking, and immediately useful - just what we were hoping for!

The attendee’s evaluations rated both of your presentations as excellent and included overwhelmingly positive written comments. One knows that the speaker is a success when one reads comments such as “Eileen McDargh is a perfect fit for Assistance League. She inspires just the spirit we need to encourage in our members and in our leaders.” “What a spark pug!” “Eileen alone was worth the trip.” You successfully engaged the audience and inspired all.

I appreciate the time and effort you put forth toward personalizing the sessions to our organization and for your prompt response to all my queries. It has been a pleasure working with you, and I thank you for your professionalism and your ability to challenge our volunteers. We will certainly recommend your presentation to others and look forward to working with you again in the future. Again, many thanks."


"In my 25 years in the association business, I have never seen a keynote speaker take as much time and effort to research an audience – including attending sessions and talking to NCPA members on-site to get to know their personalities and interests. Even your advance preparation, in reviewing background material and speeches and in our conversation about NCPA’s issues and objectives, you went well beyond the level of commitment I’ve seen with most speakers. That effort was evident in your speech and the many references you made to our concerns – they all had the ring of truth and understanding."


"As a keynote speaker for the closing general session of our Pre-Congress program, you won the audience over completely! You are a stellar and consummate professional speaker, but add to that your originality, energy and sincerity, and you are a power that is not easily duplicated.

These are among the words of praise we received about your presentations:

“She got us thinking about where we put the true importance in our lives.”

She helped us identify our fear of moving out of our comfort zone into something more challenging.”

"This doesn’t account for the power of everything you do off the platform. I am most impressed by and appreciative of the genuine sincerity you show one-on-one and within a group. You are in-the- moment, engaged and “real.” You are a special breed!"


"Well what can I say? You are terrific!! I want to truly thank you for your time, effort and huge talent displayed at the HR conference last week. Our staff, advisory group, and most importantly, our attendees, were raving at the message and the messenger. It is so refreshing to work with someone who takes the time to truly know the group she is speaking to. Personally, I also want to thank you for being so easy to work with and the extraordinary efforts you took to ease my mind when travel became interesting!! You are the best!!""


"I would like to thank you for your keynote speech at our recent videoconference, Meeting Challenges, Finding Harmony: A Program for Caregivers. The goal of the conference was to help bring caregivers together to share and be rejuvenated, as well as to provide information and education on available resources. This goal was achieved beyond our expectations due in large part to your excellent presentation. The caregivers all loved the event and we have been flooded with positive comments from organizers and participants alike. The evaluations were excellent. Your speech was perfectly attuned to the needs of caregivers. You truly made a difference in their lives! It was such a pleasure to work with you! You are organized, professional, flexible, and very easy to work with. I appreciate your energy and emotion, not to mention your extensive preparation."


"Thank you for providing the outstanding session, Work For A Living and Still Be Free To Live, at ERC’s Global Workforce Symposium which was held in Washington, DC this past October. To many of our attendees, your session was the highlight of the Symposium, and received a rating of 4.4 on a scale of 1 to 5 (4 = Excellent and 5 = Outstanding). Thank you again for bringing such a positive message to our Symposium. ERC deeply appreciates the time and effort you put into tailoring your session to provide meaningful content to our members and making the meeting a tremendous success!"


"I wanted to express my personal appreciation for your participation as a speaker at this year’s TSAE Annual Conference held in Houston, Texas. I received several compliments from individuals in attendance at the conference, all of who said the programs and presenters were excellent this year. I believe the renewed spirit of TSAE was evident throughout the conference, and your presentation certainly added to its success."


"The Lions of North America at our annual USA/Canada Lions Leadership Forum held in Tucson, Arizona had the privilege and opportunity to have Eileen on our program. This is the fourth time we have had her on our program in various locations in North America. That alone speaks to her phenomenal appeal with the audience. We, in time, will have her back again. She brings vitality, energy, motivation and a never ending bundle of enthusiasm to each and every program where we have scheduled her. With nearly 3,000 in attendance, her two (2) seminars, held in a theatre with 1,500 seating, were nearly full both times. Lions members are volunteers in service and pay their own way to these annual functions with a pre-registration each year for the ensuing Forum ranging from 1,000 to 1,5000. They come back each year because of presenters like Eileen. I use the word presenter, because she is much more than a speaker and always has the audience at a “high” when they leave her seminar."


"Our board met on November 19th at the Renaissance Hotel Long Beach which under the direction of Maribel Denner the Director of Sales and Marketing (and I might add a brand new PCMA member) was kind enough to sponsor our board retreat. Eileen McDargh of McDargh Communications in Newport Beach the retreat, which exceeded my expectations. Everyone came away feeling a new commitment to his or her positions. I highly recommend Eileen as a keynote speaker or as a facilitator for boards."


"Your talk was inspiring, thoughtful, entertaining and very well received by the more than 180 participants who attended the conference. Early comments have been very positive and I know our attendees thought your presentation was a highlight of the day."


"Our members absolutely loved your presentation! You have a warmth, wisdom and genuineness that is clearly felt when you are both on the stage as well as off. Your message, so personalized for our group and delivered with such flair, was absolutely wonderful. You tied in the theme and message of the conference, gave our attendees concrete examples and solutions, and you raised motivation and excitement about their profession, their association and the membership drive."


"We received many, many positive comments on your presentation at the Officer’s Luncheon. I truly loved what you had to say and how you said it, but it was truly a delight from a planner’s perspective to sit back and watch the reaction of the guests. You seem to have had them mesmerized. You are a wonderful person and a joy to have met. I hope we’ll get the chance to work together again some time or at least visit."


I just wanted to take a few moments and thank you for your terrific presentation at the Women’s Round Table for the Franklin Life Insurance Company in Springfield, Illinois. Your level of enthusiasm, energy and excitement charged the room. I am getting back super comments from the attendees."
