Testimonials

Testimonial from Dr. Mandy Reece–Associate Professor, PCOM School of Pharmacy–who hired Dr. Bill Lampton to help her prepare to speak at an annual professional meeting.

Beau Henderson, founder of RichLife Advisors and well-known radio personality–
talks about how Bill helped him boost his career by improving his speaking skills

 

Retired Air Force Colonel Lee Ellis heads a consulting group titled Leadership Freedom. His upcoming book describes his combat experience in Vietnam–where after 53 missions he was shot down, and then held captive for more than five years. That experience generated his book title: Leadership Lessons from the Hanoi Hilton. Lee enlisted Dr. Lampton’s Speech Coaching services to sharpen his keynote speech to a conference of 400 strength and conditioning coaches. Two intensive sessions brought very obvious improvement to his message and his delivery style. Driving to Iowa after his Kansas City speech, he called Bill to report his success at the event, judging by enthusiastic audience response during his speech and conversations afterward at an exhibit booth.

Corporate manager Davis Tademy said this when he concluded my coaching program: “Bill’s speech coaching was invaluable to my progress. He showed me things I never considered. I definitely recommend his services.”

 

“Bill Lampton makes communications simple. I had the pleasure of participating in a recent presentation of his, and I found his ideas easy to follow and supported by examples and visual media. Bill Lampton earns points with me by delivering points clearly, and that’s just good communication.”

–Paul Johnson, VP, Sales and Marketing, The Adams Companies

“Dr. Lampton provided an interactive and engaging seminar: ‘Network Your Way to Profit & Prominence.’ The information he provided to our small business owners was enlightening with resources and new ideas they could implement immediately.

After hosting Dr .Lampton at this event, I now understand why he is recognized for his expertise in communication, sales, customer service and motivation.”

–Jean McCullough, Project Manager, Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce

“My firm recently hired Bill to provide “speech coaching” in preparation for our Annual Meeting. I found Bill’s advice and coaching to be extremely helpful. He helped me build confidence in my public speaking skills while also giving me targeted pointers about ways to relax, slow down and connect more with the audience. I would recommend Bill’s coaching without reservation to anyone who wants to upgrade their public speaking skills.”

–Jay Kilroy, Willis Investment Counsel

“I’ve had the great pleasure to hear a talk by Bill to a group of senior executives & recommend him highly as a speaker, coach and author. Many in the audience were fairly seasoned speakers and presenters, but each person learned many great new lessons. Bill taught each of us to leverage that inevitable twinge of stage-fright (which simply means you care about your audience and your message) to communicate with poise, power and persuasion. Bill connected with each person, conveying many valuable and highly actionable tips. During my career, I’ve had the opportunity to ask many a great speaker and leader to share thoughts at annual sales meetings. It’s definitely safe to say Bill is on my “go to” list to do so again!”

–Jay McKenzie, Group Publisher, Lifestyle & Shelter, Bonnier Corporation

“I had the opportunity to attend one of Bill’s seminars. Bill was extremely engaging and enthusiastic while using a fundamental framework to weave his message on communication. Utilizing homespun humor, a fantastic knack for timing, and a stellar and commanding timbre, Bill provided the crowd with a great lesson presented in an entertaining way.”

–Jason Petrovich, Consultant, Palladin Solutions, LLC

“Bill presented at an executive forum I attended recently and really impressed me and the rest of the large audience with his command of the material and his remarkable presentation skills. Bill has a great message and delivers that message with great skill.”

–Walt Carter, Principal, RM BATTLE, LLC

“When I saw the Championship Communicator was going to be our keynote speaker, I thought “well that should be a ringer!” – what professional specializing in communication could fail to meet expectations in conveying concepts to a group of law firm managers? What I was not prepared for, and what brought me into complete presence throughout his keynote address, was feeling through his words and actions that Dr. Lampton had complete appreciation for and interest in our profession. He regularly hit unique issues and scenarios right on target, which kept me engaged and anxious to hear what he had to say about solutions. Dr. Lampton had obviously taken the time and made a considerable effort to fully understand our plights and current challenges, and presented a relevant and thought provoking series of applications which we could all take away and immediately apply. I am truly grateful for Dr. Lampton agreeing to come to the “Far North” to put his ideas forth to our Association – and I am personally inspired to apply the same attention to bringing empathy and true understanding to my office management and professional coaching practices.”

–Jan Whyte, Professional Coach and Delegate, BCLMA Whistler Conference 2008

Thank you so much for an invigorating presentation.”

–Charles R. Oglesby, President and CEO, Nalley Automotive Group

“Your fast paced, interactive program on working with clubs’ Boards presented to the Georgia Chapter of CMAA was both insightful and thought provoking. Working with real life scenarios helped everyone participate in the process of solving real issues and your style of delivery enabled everyone to be part of the program.”

–R. Stacy Webb, General Manger, Forest Heights Country Club

“I was a part-time guest of Bob Stone’s at the CenturyTel conference in Colorado. You did an excellent job.  I was amazed at your technique, style, and ability to teach. It would be worth writing just to tell you that.  As it stands, however, I’ve recently had the opportunity to share your contact information with two companies I work with that are looking for this type of thing.  I hope you hear from them soon; I’ll be more than happy to continue to send people your way.  You did a wonderful job!”

–Vince Dooley, Athletic Director, University of Georgia 

“Bill did his ‘homework’ to seek information from business leaders across the state to customize his talk ‘Creating a Customer Care Culture for Your Company’ for the pest control industry. It certainly paid off because the feedback from the attendees was extremely positive with many attendees citing that he was their favorite speaker. From a meeting planner’s point of view, Bill was very easy going and pleasant to work with. I wholeheartedly recommend him for your next speaking engagement!”

Dr. Lampton’s lectures covered motivation, communications, humor and effective listening among other topics of general interest. Each time his comments were inspiring, entertaining, thought provoking, and motivational. It was immediately apparent to me that I was listening to a man of high character, great understanding, and a highly gifted and effective speaker. It was a great positive experience for both my wife and me.”

He reaches out to the audience with a warmth and sincerity that is rare. Bill has a way of making his material flow effortlessly while keeping the attendees entertained and energized.”

Braden Albert, President, HR Star Conference

“Bill Lampton never ceases to amaze me with his gift for hitting the nail on the head every time. He has such an astute sense for real customer service, something we all inherently know is driven by two simple fundamentals: our ability to communicate effectively and professionally with our customers, and to lead a motivated, inspired and enthusiastic team who WANT to care for their customers. Bill does two things brilliantly. He teaches us how to be more effective in our communications and he always suggests new and innovative ways to motivate our teams. I find it very rare to find a trainer and speaker who can talk to both what the customer wants and expects and to what staff need to produce the goods.”

–Euan McGlashan, General Manager and Managing Director, Barnsley Gardens

“Bill served as keynote speaker for our AFP chapter’s Philanthropy Day Conference. He delivered an inspiring hour-long message on communication and hosted a workshop for participants. Evaluations rated Bill the highest among a group of six energetic and knowledgeable presenters. I hope we have the chance to have him back in our community. He’s sure to be an asset to your coming endeavors.”

Joel Muller, Association of Fundraising Professionals, Nevada

“Thank you for the half-day seminar you conducted for our staff. It was extraordinary and the staff was delighted the way you had them interact with each other and participate in the presentation. The DISCS were an exceptional hit with everyone. They made us take time to see how others view us as well as our potential to work and communicate with each other and clients. We look forward to having you back at Large and Gilbert for further educational seminars. I would definitely recommend your services to anyone looking to enhance the quality of customer service and communication skills with coworkers as well as clients.”
