Randa Nemish, Finance Manager, TierOne Travel, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
In my 36 years as a travel professional I have attended many travel conferences. Alan far surpassed any of the speakers I have heard. His attention to detail and his commitment to learn about our industry and fit us into his presentation was unbelievable. I still think of it every day and am amazed. It was inspiring to everyone in the room and it has certainly encouraged me to look to the future and see what I can do outside my box. His message is unforgettable.

Your story is powerful, but most of all you did an excellent job tying it to our work with public entities and managing risk. No other keynote speaker I’ve seen does this as well as you do.
Karl Baker SVP Sales & Marketing, American Hotel Register Company, Vernon Hills, IL
Alan was simply brilliant. Our entire organization could share in the excitement of his journey to the summit and thanks to his detailed preparation, we quickly grasped how his experiences relate to our business and culture in setting goals, preparation and teamwork. Strengthened by his masterful and captivating presentation, we are all now believers in the power of “can” and “will.” He will take you on a journey you will never forget.
Cheryl Nolda, SVP Marketing, SunTrust Mortgage, Richmond, VA
One of the most inspiring parts of your presentation was the question and answer during which you connected one-to-one with everyone in the room. When a woman asked you why you were different, you told her how important she was, how unique she was, and you completely validated who she was in front of hundreds of people. For me, it was one of the pivotal moments of my life. It was absolutely powerful.
John J. McDonough, Executive VP and Chief Operating Officer, American Renal Associates, Beverly, MA
Thank-you for sharing your story of achievement in your life by never giving up. Can Will. You did a tremendous job of connecting to our staff by relating your story with our staff’s life in both their changes and successes.

If Alan can triumph on Everest and come through cancer, imagine what I can do. All of a sudden, my challenges don’t seem so insurmountable.
James Messier, VP Product Development, Medflow, Inc., Charlotte, NC
From the first phone call with Alan I knew his presentation was going to be something special. Alan took time to study and understand the changing landscape of healthcare, our organization and our clients and artfully wove together a presentation that perfectly paralleled his personal obstacles with the obstacles facing healthcare providers today. His comparisons hit home with attendees and they were moved and inspired by his energy, tenacity, and amazing story of survival. Everyone left the presentation energized and ready to return to work with greater perspective, motivation and determination to succeed, no matter what the challenge.
