"Thank you so much for your inspiration and enthusiasm at our President’s Circle Award Breakfast and our department meeting. You were outstanding! As I said, we have a tough audience. It is a great credit to you that they were attentive and interested the whole time. I think having some real estate background and knowledge was such an advantage. They loved how you had a thread of real estate weaved throughout your program. It gave you instant credibility."

"We were very excited that Eileen McDargh was available to speak at our all-employee meeting. From start to finish, she was full of energy and delivered just the right message and then some -- and with such candor, compassion and a sense of humor. Eileen has a way of making you feel like she’s known you all of your life. The event was a huge success! Eileen made a real connection with our group and her messages have continued to resonate around the office. I believe her core concepts and strategies will be revisited and refreshed for the long-term by our employees as important life tools. We would definitely recommend Eileen to other groups for speaking and consulting engagements."

"Whenever I worked with Eileen, she "loved my clients" like a baby. She held them... She fed them... She looked into their eyes and communicated so clearly & caringly. Eileen embraced every single project as if nothing else mattered on this planet other than the success of my clients program. Her enthusiasm, spirit and devotion rippled through the ballrooms. Her smile, her sparkle, her "gift" for listening and responding so articulately made her the "bar" that I compare all others to. With Eileen, I always knew my program would be stellar and memorable. We are all so fortunate to have the likes of Eileen McDargh in our wonderful meetings industry."

"It was a pleasure having you as a keynote speaker at our recent Consumer Operations Leadership Summit. Your speech was fabulous. Your exuberant speaking style captivated the audience while your keynote was truly inspired.""
– TOM SMITH
"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."

"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."

Thank you for being such a special part of our Coldwell Banker International Business Conference. For two years in a row, your energetic presentations were in the select group of top rated seminars at our conference. Your presentations excited some... motivated others… and, perhaps best of all, served as a “wake-up” call to the majority in attendance. More importantly, you gave the group choices on how they could find and maintain positive balance in their lives."

"On behalf of the over 1,700 women and men who attended the 25th Annual Joint Women's Leadership Symposium, we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for your participation. This year's symposium was the largest ever nationwide gathering of women in uniform!
Your "Radical Resiliency" session was inspiring and informative. The reaction from our attendees has been overwhelmingly positive, and you have made a difference in their professional lives. Next year's conference in Washington, DC will continue to build on this success and we hope you will join us.
As we continue to grow, please know that your support of this conference is critical to the success of this mission. Your participation is truly appreciated."

"What a pleasure it was to meet you last week! You are really a delight and an inspiration. Everyone really enjoyed your seminar “Staying Rightside Up When the World is Upside Down.” They are still talking about it. It was exactly what everyone needed to hear. It was one of the most interesting seminars I’ve ever heard. Your creative ways of using cartoons, examples and quotes made this an excellent presentation!"
"Eileen taught me how to increase the power of my presence on the stage. By focusing on the subtle cues I was giving the audience she made spot on edits that made a huge difference in my delivery."

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."
– PROCTOR & GAMBLE
"Eileen is one of the most creative and inspiring business problem solvers I have ever known. Her depth of knowledge combined with her endless passion and enthusiasm make her an unstoppable force for improvement. Any company that needs a kick in the pants combined with a solid path forward needs to have Eileen on their team. I've seen her in action and she has my highest recommendation."

"Our event survey just came back, and you were one of the highest (if not THE highest) speakers ever! 99% positive on your keynote, with several attendees commenting that you were one of the best speakers they had seen. Very high praise... but very well deserved and mirrored the feedback and comments I heard during and after the event.
I want to thank you again for an unforgettable day. You were fantastic!"

"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."
