"In our field, we're always looking for projects that result in a significant return on investment. Dr. Cooper is a high return on investment! He understands my business. He dove in and gained a comprehensive understanding of our mission and our organization. (The presentation was) practical, fun and challenged each participant. Perhaps best of all, his work didn't end when the event convened. Instead, he made himself available to participants long after the program was over. He is truly interested in seeing my company thrive!"
"I realized this weekend that I'm sitting in the driver's seat and (the) road I travel is up to me. Thank you for opening my eyes and pointing me to the steering wheel."
“Dr. Cooper is one of the best speakers I have come across in 25 years of professional work. Describing him as “innovative” is truly an understatement. His innovative talents are widely evident in his keynote speaking addresses, his writing, and his operational leadership. His audiences rave over his impact as a speaker- not only after the address, but long into their efforts to change behaviors and achieve targeted outcomes.”
"I have worked with well over 200 speakers in the past 12 years. Many times speakers are moved to the speaking profession through personal tragedy, triumph, or spiritual enlightenment. Then there are those who are drawn to the profession by raw talent. Dr. Cooper is gifted as a great communicator. His speaking style is clean and free from personal issues or agendas and he inspires the audience.”
