I never get tired of listening to you and I'm amazed at how you can connect with thousands in an arena as if your speaking to everyone individually.

    Our keynote's plane was delayed two and a half hours and I had 5,000 in my audience waiting. Bob had already spoken for 90 minutes. Bob took the initiative and walked out on stage and saved the day, entertaining and inspiring for those two and a half hours. It was a huge success! Bob has spoken for me at my Celebrity Events, Millionaires In Training Events for over a decade with average audiences of 1,500 per event. Bob is amazing and entertaining speaker and without exception one of the most versatile and inspiring speakers I've ever had.
