Testimonials

“We asked Steve McClatchy to be the keynote speaker this year at our annual sales meeting.  We were looking for a speaker with a great blend of content and delivery and he more than met our expectations.  Steve will challenge you and your organization to look deeper into how you prioritize your time and make decisions.  He will also deliver his message in a way that keeps you engaged and entertained.  In the past we have had everyone from Olympic athletes to celebrities speak at our annual meetings.  While these speakers were enthusiastic and told nice stories, they typically did not convey content in a compelling manner that was relevant to the needs of our audience.  If you are looking for a keynote speaker that will not let you down then look no further!”
– Will Spruance, Sr. Director, Comcast

“We first asked Steve to address our company on the topic of time management and his training was outstanding. We then asked him to be the keynote speaker at our Trade Contractor’s Conference and we are still getting great feedback about the leadership speech he delivered.  Whether a speech or full-day seminar with Steve you can be sure it will be dynamic, thought-provoking and engaging.”
– John Dewey, President, Dewey Homes

“Steve McClatchy far exceeded all our expectations as a keynote speaker for our membership’s dinner meeting. His presentation was very professional, dynamic and highly interactive. Our audience consisted of industry professionals and principal owners of homebuilding companies.  We asked Steve to deliver for us and we were extremely pleased with our membership’s highly positive reaction. If you’re looking for an outstanding speaker, I highly recommend Steve McClatchy.”
