The BEST CONFERENCE SEMINAR I’VE ATTENDED EVER! What I learned today from Mr. Haskett will stay with me both professionally and personally.
— The Power of Play - Incentive Works Survey Result
Roger Haskett is the most energetic and inspiring MC I have had a chance to work with in my 30 year career in the event AV business. He makes it impossible for your audience not to listen up, and perk up, whenever he takes the stage. No matter what the topics for discussion may be it is obvious that he does his research and puts his heart and soul on the line.
— David A. Evans, Senior Project Manager, CCR Solutions
Roger is a true talent and it was awe-inspiring watching him deliver his presentation on “Managing Executive Expectations.” He was literally bursting with energy and had the entire room captivated with his intensity and charisma.
— Milos Pospisil, PMP
Your keynote was very inspiring and motivational — students were talking about it and referencing it even at the end of the conference.  We were extremely happy to have you there!
— Estella Zhao, Mini Enterprise UBC
Your BCODN presentation was FANTASTIC and invigorating, I LOVED it and learned a lot!! Now I know what to aim for as a presenter!
— Ute Kranefeld, Fraser Health
Roger combines a mega-genius mind with superb acting skills and delivers a practical, powerful message to his audience. I was glad to get there.
— Terry Brock, Achievement Systems
This session was way better than I expected!!! I was growing weary after 3 long days of sessions and this was a breath of fresh air!! So energetic and refreshing to not be talked at from a podium and present actual ideas and examples. It was so thought provoking that my notes are all original ideas inspired by this season! Bravo!
— Attendee, The Special Event Conference 2017
Thank you!  You were tons of fun and had a huge impact on creating the energized atmosphere at the summit… setting the tone you did enabled people to connect better than they would have otherwise.
— Laura Carter, First West Credit Union
Roger….once again, you knocked my socks off with your energy and humour. Way to go team!

Roger is so full of energy and wisdom. This is one session you won’t want to miss!
— Molly Wendel, Executives Network
The world is lucky that a talented actor named Roger Haskett has stepped off the stage and into the meeting world. His energy and passion light up a room. At a recent national conference I attended, he was by far the best speaker. I was amazed by his fun sense of humor and — most important — how much I learned from him. I implemented his tips immediately and saw noticeable improvement in my business.
— Dave Lieber, Dallas Morning News Columnist
Roger kept our group of Executive Leaders and VP’s captivated and entertained with his unique insight and enthusiasm. A masterful performance, this team of high achievers were completely engaged in Roger’s wonderfully interactive Pressure Cooker Confidence presentation. An excellent addition to any conference or team building event - we’d love to have him back again!
— Joann Pfeifer, General Manager, Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Hotel
We are so thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with you (Roger) and really get an understanding of all you can do from speaking, to the amazing entertainment, to your role as emcee. I am so looking forward to working with you again at my first opportunity and having you back as a part of the 2015 Leadership Summit. You took the event from good to amazing with your humour, energy and enthusiasm. Thank you a million times over.
— Sherryl Parsons, Rare Affairs (Envision Financial Leadership Summit)
I loved your presentations and energy, and can definitely say that I learned a lot from you! Thank you again for taking time to come to Mobify and teach us about confidence and public speaking.
— Yana Bobrysheva, Mobify
Thank you so much for your wonderful speech given today at the PMI (Project Management Institute) event, every person I met at the event agreed that yours was the best speech of all. I liked many of the concepts you talked about, I even will be using the following statement frequently from now on, and I will quote: “as Roger Haskett says ”…the world is always looking for people that make a difference…
— Angel Gonzales, PMP
Your seminar was instrumental in helping me with a book launch party I was throwing 2 weeks after the seminar. I followed many of your suggestions and found to my amazement that I WAS NOT EVEN NERVOUS! I had fun, guests had fun, people bought books…what more could I ask for?

You had an enormous impact on me and my ability to achieve this life long goal…thank you, thank you, thank you!
— AK White, Author of No Reason to Stay
[Roger is] one of the most enlightening, entertaining speakers I’ve ever heard and I would recommend him to any industrial or commercial group that wants to to improve their speaking abilities
— Wayne Kehl, Dynamic Leadership
I want to thank you for facilitating an excellent session with the CEM faculty – I heard such great remarks as they were leaving. One faculty member said she could have sat and listened to you the entire day. Others said it was the best training they had ever been to. They absolutely loved you!
— Jennifer Potter, CEM Program Manager International, IAEE
The session was so successful that Roger went on to present the same program to their senior executives subsequent to this in Salt Lake City!
