An offsite meeting with my reports - heads of business from across the world, different nationalities, different backgrounds and different business areas. Frank conducted a half day session on day two of the three day meeting. Frank is energised, motivated and engaging. There was no-one in the room who was not captivated by what he was saying. He had really prepared and tailored his material to fit into my required business outcomes. The whole morning was varied, interesting, moving, thought provoking and uplifting. My team was left highly motivated for the business year ahead, driven, and armed with tools to help realise action plans. Testament to the impact of Frank's session, is that once back in the office, dealing with daily work issues, the team continues to pull on the resources and motivation gained from Frank. I would highly recommend Frank - he is one of the best speakers I have ever had the opportunity to experience.
