Mark literally rocked our world!

Well…you made me look like a hero again, this time for recommending you to The New York Tech Summit. Their meeting planner emailed me this note regarding your appearance yesterday:
“He was literally amazing. Hands down the best keynote we’ve ever had. On top of it all he’s just an a great guy. He spent the entire day (and night) with us. Spoke to and took photos with every attendee that approached him. He even jumped in and performed at our attendee party with our corporate rock band. This is going to be hard to top next year, so start thinking!!!”
But now my job is that much harder for them next year as you have set the bar VERY high. This was extremely high praise considering some of the past speakers I have booked for this organization: POW Charlie Plumb, Travelocity & Kayak founder Terry Jones, best-selling author/TV personality Larry Winget, and astronaut Rick Searfoss…all of whom are outstanding speakers! Thanks again for going above and beyond to ensure a successful event! Now if I can only figure out how to clone you…”

I’ve had the opportunity to see Mark Schulman’s keynote on two different occasions and each time came away inspired to think and act differently. By integrating music, visuals and a powerful speaking style, Mark is a unique performer in a world of talking heads. In one instance, I saw him convince a group of local government employees to form a drum line, leading to some real a-ha moments about team work and collaboration. I would heartily recommend him for any corporate or association event that wants to bring in someone that can “shake things up” and give solid take away value at the same time.

When I first heard about the keynote speaker for Connect16, I thought he might have some interesting anecdotes from the music industry, which was appropriate for a conference in Nashville. I didn’t expect that Mark Schulman would have much direct relevance for Proposal Managers and Sales Operations but he brilliantly adapted his experiences as a rock drummer to provide some fascinating insights. He talked about being the backline of the band that supports the rock star to deliver a world-class performance and I think this really resonated with the audience, who are the backline that enable our Sales “rock stars” are able to perform at their best.

Dear Mark–I have struggled for several days to write to you, as I wanted to honestly capture and share with you the response from my staff concerning your presentation. I have finally concluded that words are not sufficient. You captured their hearts, motivated and inspired- but even more, you honored them by your willingness to participate. We are unaccustomed to such generosity and recognition of our efforts. You are truly a special person and we thank you for making us feel special.

Your message was straightforward, but one that we tend to forget from time to time — attitude is everything! I consider myself a pretty positive person, but many of your points were great reminders that we can all do better. I keep hearing “I get to…” and “I’m not a whiner, I’m a winner” and “Attitude, Behavior, Consequence” throughout the office — it makes me smile! Thanks so much for sharing your experiences, and for spending your time with our team! It was a really special evening for us but you made it a night that we will never forget!!! Thanks again — wishing you all the best!
