Motivational Speaker Eileen McDargh's Testimonials
"There are speakers who run in and deliver. There are speakers who say "customize" and then do little of that. You delivered a message that just plain exceeded our expectations. I appreciate that you actually took the time to learn our language, arrived early, paid attention to what the other keynote speakers said and wove it into your speech, picking up on the key themes. This makes you a rare breed."

"Thank you for speaking at our Tuesday luncheon during the Ingenix Health Care Information Summit in San Diego! Your topic and your knowledge of our audience made you an immediate hit with our group. One of our senior vice presidents came up to me after your presentation and said, “Eileen really understands the diverse audience we have here. You can certainly tell that she did her homework.” Your talk on the “Mastery Model” is so appropriate for those in health care and technology jobs. You have given us a great foundation on which to build our success."
On behalf of The Canadian Payroll Association and the Conference delegates, please accept my sincerest thanks for your contribution to the success of our Conference in Vancouver. Your presentation on "Work for a Living but Still Be Free to Live" was so meaningful for so many of our delegates who feel the stress and pressure of being outstanding employees, managers, parents, daughters or sons, friends etc—all at the same time.
Among other things, your thoughtful stories and lessons sent us all away with the resolve to spend more time on the things that truly matter in life—and less time fretting about the things we can't control. Judging from the number of books you sold after your presentation, your words really hit home for so many people!. I have to tell you what a true pleasure it was to work with you in the planning stages of our conference. You were so flexible and accommodating and dare I say it—so darn to work with. Thank you for making my job so much more pleasant!"

"Words cannot express how excited I am about being President of the Southwest & Pacific Chapter of PCMA since your facilitation of our board retreat. I am now working with a board of enthusiastic, motivated, caring, dedicated people that I do not believe I had before the retreat. Many questioned why I needed a facilitator before the retreat. None question that rationale now. I personally have learned a lot about working within the style of each member, which I would never, had known without the exercises you facilitated. We are also on the path to setting and achieving our goals. Every time I have heard or worked with you either as a facilitator or keynoter I have been more and more impressed. You are certainly like wine improving all the time."

"While we did as much homework on your background and style as we could, one never knows if the advertising is all hype or actual fact. If you choose to use any of my remarks for publicity, those readers need to know that you delivered more than what I expected. We will have bottom line results in employee retention & recruitment as an outcome of our work with you."
At a kick-off meeting to merge the New England/New York Women's Group with the Mid-Atlantic Group, one of the great things Eileen did for us was to help the group understand that our issues are the same. She struck a real chord with me in her discussion regarding balancing work and family life. She talked about letting go of the rocks - elements in our lives that drag us down but we feel compelled to continue on with these rocks I have kept a picture of the rock on my desk over the past 8 months to remind myself to make different personal choice and to let go of the stuff that does not contribute to my overall personal life mission."
