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
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

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!

Roger….once again, you knocked my socks off with your energy and humour. Way to go team!

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

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.

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 own, 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!
