“Thank you for speaking at our annual training for our directors for the Planned Giving Business Unit of the ACS. I heard many directors state the time with you was so meaningful to them and that they will go home ready to have their best year in production. You communicated with us in a very special way. The session you organized for us to share with each other what we recognize in each other that is positive was very meaningful. Thank you for taking the time to share with us.”
Jim Prock, Vice President,
The American Cancer Society
Robert’s approach is clearly not the canned motivational speech, the kind usually forgotten by the time by the time the audience leaves the room. He engages people in a process of discovery. They learn or are reminded of what is true for them and gain tremendous power to put those learnings into action for extraordinary results.
"(You) worked with me and my team to increase the leadership and management abilities of my hotel and restaurant General Managers. After installing a strong 'outcome oriented' attitude and performance management system, you also worked several layers down in the organization and I'm delighted with the results."
Kevin Brown, President
Concept Restaurants, Inc.

Robert, I am writing to express a simple, yet profound “Thank you” for your presentation at our management retreat. As you know, the Silvertree is the largest resort property in Snowmass Village and we are committed to creating an outstanding service experience for our guests. The employees of the Silvertree make the difference and a key to their performance is the daily influence of our management team.
You did an outstanding job of connecting with our managers as someone who has “been there and done that.” They clearly received you as both an expert they could learn from and someone they could identify with as an operating executive. Your wit and wisdom plus the practical exercises you designed and led, left our team inspired and eager to use what they learned the very next day. It’s been a challenging time for the entire hospitality industry and I’m pleased to report that within that environment, our managers are performing better than ever.
The gift to each participant of your book, “Living an Extraordinary Life” was both an acknowledgement of how much we value our people and a great reminder of what they learned during this productive and exciting session.
We eagerly look forward to the next time you challenge us to be our best, to being committed to “extraordinary” personal and professional results.
William. E. Burwell
Executive Vice President and General Manager
