How much I enjoyed your presentation – it was the hit of our conference. On a scale of zero to ten, you were an eleven.

Captivating only touches the surface of the impact Lance Secretan had at our recent C-Suite Conference. The top business leaders from some of the largest companies are rarely inspired as they were by Lance.
Bringing his creditability as a corporate CEO coupled with his wisdom and humility, Lance offered a new perspective to what matters for long-term business success. Lance grabbed everyone’s attention in a surprising way. He talked about love, a topic that is always present in our lives and mostly ignored in a business setting. He showed the link of our core capacity for caring for the concerns of others that is the foundation for inspiration. He challenged the value of vision and missions statements and showed the power of an organizational dream to change the destiny of organizations and all who work there.
We have had many leading speakers at our events. Lance is at the top of the list for us.

I just wanted to thank you again for a truly inspiring keynote address to our boards of trustees and leaders. Your message carried over the next two days and will certainly be a foundation for discussion at future board and leadership team meetings. I hope our paths cross again soon.

Lance Secretan has learned something that escapes most executives: that their employees have souls. Even better, Lance shows would-be leaders how to create organizations with soul and the results to prove it.
During the transition to my current leadership position, Lance Secretan offered a sounding board, solid advice and deep experience that was extraordinarily valuable. As a result of many years as an operating CEO, he is wise and deeply grounded in the experience of being a CEO. He does not hold back his truth and represents a wonderful, highly intelligent partner for sharing ideas and candor. My path towards my present position was made easier through my work with Lance. He guided me through the process of finding a new role that is more aligned with my talents and passion – I am much happier for it.

If I could choose but one person to work with for the remainder of my professional career, it is Lance. He is an inspirational leader who brings out the best in others, no matter what their title or task. He knows how to elevate everyone around him to achieve a level of excellence that is unexpected. His knowledge of corporate culture and leadership make him a huge asset to any corporation or organization looking to move to the next level. Lance successfully helped my organization earn a place on Fortune magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For four years in a row.

On my long and non-linear journey to become an effective human being and leader, I have derived much meaning by reading the works of important thinkers, writers, speakers and leaders. A few years ago, I had the privilege of reading, then participating in a speech, and eventually getting to know Dr. Lance Secretan. From the outset, I witnessed his phenomenal virtuosity in leading a group of 160-plus leaders from Louisville, KY as they built consensus that gave birth to their city’s collective dream. He doesn’t just eloquently teach the principles of inspiring leadership; they reside in every cell of his being.

Secretan is prepared, professional and awesome.
I can vouch 100% for Lance’s work — I absolutely guarantee it! He has worked with us since 1991 and has had a profound impact on…the entire company.

Lance is one of the most inspirational people I have met. He helped awaken in our organization a set of principles of Leadership that had been pushed to the background by years of focusing on the wrong things. He has been a mentor to me. Just knowing him helped me move in directions I never thought possible in the business world.
Often, the best wisdom is the simplest especially when it’s delivered in a clear, logical and compelling fashion. The simplicity of Lance Secretan’s Leadership Principles and his incredibly articulate, professional, and commanding presentation made this one of the very best sessions I’ve ever attended. And, that includes 40 years of Million Dollar Round Table and other industry meetings. I’ve sent autographed copies of his books to my kids and plan to send additional copies to each of my key clients.
