What clients say about Larry Robertson as a presenter…

“Larry is one of those rare speakers who is not only articulate and engaging, but also uniquely informed and authentic. His talk felt like a one-on-one session with wise, warm, and witty advisor. Our audience benefited from Larry’s remarkable ability to make digestible and practical the deep insights he possesses from his 30 years of experience as an advisor to leaders, his extensive knowledge from his award-winning books, and his deep network of relationships. Far more than simply a speaker, I highly recommend Larry Robertson.”

Betsy Frantz, President & CEO, Leadership Center for Excellence

“We were all impressed by (Larry’s desire) to dig deep into the goals of our symposium in order to customize his work to fit our audience. He went above and beyond, making the day memorable for everyone. One audience ember commented that he felt like he was at a $10,000 a plate event listening to him speak. I agree! It was an honor to work with Larry.”

Nicole Ofiesh, Executive Director, Schwab Learning Center, Stanford University

“It takes a skilled speaker to connect with such a large group (3,000) and successfully apply his focus to the larger context of the conference in such a thoughtful way. Larry tailored his presentation to offer not simply words or data, but solutions and ideas. He anticipates the questions his audience had. He made the content relatable and personal. He had people taking action right there in the session. And he struck that rare balance between educating and entertaining an audience. My team highly recommends Larry Robertson.”

Kelly Williams, Co-founder, Learning and the Brain Conferences

“Leadership, entrepreneurship, and creativity are not terms most people use when they reference state government officials, but you did. Your talk “From Unpredictable to Possible” was not only packed with relevant data, thought anecdotes, and insightful comparisons, but was more like a conversation with the Secretaries of State. You spoke to them like a trusted colleague whose role it was to dispense good advice, making them see things form a different perspective, and reinforce that ‘change’ is a concept to embrace. I had several people tell me your keynote was outstanding, using terms like “life-changing” and “incredibly impactful.”

Leslie Reynolds, Executive Director, National Association of Secretaries of State
