"Just dropping a note to say hello. I enjoyed meeting up with you at the Simmons Conference is Boston in April. Your book “My Get Up And Go... Got Up And Went” has inspired me and helped me through a difficult transition. Here are the phrases from you book that helped me get through it:
Music rules the heart
Don’t cry over something that won’t cry over you
Learn something new
Go for a change
I have read only to page 48 so far and I am looking forward to reading the rest.Your presentation at the Simmons conference was as GREAT as I knew it would be!!!! I was in tears (good tears!) at the end and so were my friends. You really have a gift for public speaking. Thanks for the inspiration! Keep on doing what you are doing!"

"Your morning workshop and afternoon key note were inspiring, motivating, and thought provoking to name a few! What better way to spend some quality time ensuring those good things become great things, and those challenges become things that we face, learn from, and overcome.
Thank you on behalf of all the people you inspired yesterday. The ripple effect of your words and your story has been evident in the many conversations about you and the wonderful experiences of our attendees.
As I said yesterday, when you mentioned that your piloting relative was your mother, my very next thought was that I could see why you are the amazing force you are. Your mother flew planes, and you fly people."

Judging from the buzz during the event and the written evaluations, I can safely say this was our most successful event ever (our eighth). The credit for starting the day off on the right note goes to you. You certainly did your homework and provided a perfect fit in presentation style, content, and audience appropriateness. The goal of the conference, which was to facilitate women to integrate new and healthy lifestyle behaviors into their daily lives was enhanced by your strong and motivating message."

"You were an inspiration and a delight yesterday as the closing keynote speaker at the Intel WIN (Women @ Intel Network) conference. Your speech was packed with facts, motivation, self-empowerment strategies, and delivered with delightful down-to-earth charisma and humor. I am motivated to use my 4 P's. (Power, Passion, Play, Purpose). You are 'fun in the sandbox,' and I am glad you were a part of our sandbox for a day."

"Eileen McDargh was our speaker for the morning with The Energy Connection: How to Get It, Keep It, and Stop Giving It Away. At the core of Eileen’s powerful message was the realization that all innovation, creativity, and productivity are the results of people who are highly energized by what they do, how they do it, and for whom they do it. She was inspirational as well as thought provoking … and did we say fun?"

"We were thrilled to have Eileen speak at our annual women's symposium! We have a new theme for the event each year and Eileen was able to customize her presentation to it and even make some 'on the fly' changes the day of the event to incorporate some of the concepts we shared before the attendees arrived! She is heart-felt and gentle as well as fun and humorous. She made us giggle. She made us think. She made us cry. She gave us encouragement, wisdom, motivation and inspiration. It was a joy to work with her from the moment we hired her through the standing ovation she received from the attendees the day of the event!"

Eileen impressed me from the first time I heard her speak at a Woman’s Leadership conference. In that environment, she taught a room full of women (and men) how to be extraordinary and to be your best every day. She enables others to recognize their strengths and as a woman, for it being ok to be an intelligent, female leader without apology. I also hired her to help develop a larger, gender mixed and culturally diverse group of leaders within our international group. Eileen is engaging and candid in her approach to leadership development. Through research based applications, she enabled the team to identify their strengths and opportunities and how to improve upon our interactions as a team."
