Wondering what Dr. Paul’s clients have to say…

You don’t have to take our word for it. Here’s what clients just like you have to say about the warmth and vitality that Dr. Paul brought to their event, as well as the impact he has had on their organizations overall.

“Everyone will learn something useful in this presentation: expert communication, time management, a focus on what influences outcomes, creating a culture of success.  Concise explanations of exactly what experts do.”

Bob Pinard, Cox Media

“I have attended many continuing education seminars and summits in my career. I consider my experience at Pinehurst to be right at the top. Your constant smile was a wonderful, infectious addition. The dedication and enthusiasm you brought to the retreat was impressive and much appreciated.”

Dr. David Wright, Wright Balance Inc.

“I liked the 3 questions to self-monitor skills and performance. I will begin using these tomorrow and pass along to my co-workers. Performance does Matter!”

Peggy Hendrix, Pharma Tech Industries

“Clear communicator, very concise and organized!”

Pat Swanson, Medlink Georgia, Inc.

“Professionally prepared and knowledgeable speaker. When interviewing applicants, I will consider experience, skills and perspectives more than I do now.”

Peggy Hardigree, Oconee State Bank

“Thanks for a great training camp!”

Catrin Nilsmark, European Solheim Cup Team Captain

“Paul made very strong points. They are things that you can refer back to and concentrate on them and they will make everything in my business better.”

Charles O’Neal, Helena Chemical Company

“The entire presentation was excellent. I now know the questions to ask myself to improve both personally and professionally.”

Lisa Ward, Athens Clarke County Government

“I came away with renewed enthusiasm and many new ideas that will make me more effective in my job.”

Fred Griffin, Director, Grand Cypress Academy of Golf

“The presentation motivated me to action.”

Lisa David, Waverly Court Houses

“Paul, I did have a great time at Pinehurst and also learned a lot.”

Ivan Lendl, Tennis Champion

“This event would not be the success that it was without your willingness to provide an outstanding presentation aimed at supporting and assisting our members.  The information you provided will improve these professionals’ knowledge and capabilities.  The overwhelming comments heard from those in attendance were how impressed they were with your presentation.  I simply can’t thank you enough.”

Dawes Marlatt, Director of Education, PGA of America

“The feedback from the team was overwhelmingly positive. I expect you will be receiving (or already have received) several emails from the team wanting your book. Our Western District Manager old me she is going back through her ‘playbook’ to rethink some of her routines. Our Midwest District Manager was all over the Innovative Thinking steps. Donna, our Global HR Director, said she’s heard plenty of performance improvement presentations and yours is one of the tops. You kept us captivated during your presentation!”

Matthew Clark, Senior Finance Team Leader, General Electric Energy

“It is challenging to find speakers that can engage the audience while also delivering substance in their presentations. Dr. Paul Schempp was able to do both. And, as an event planner for 9 years, I have had to deal with a lot of different and often difficult personalities. Paul was a pleasure to work with. He took the time to arrange a pre-event conference call and was genuinely interested in tailoring his message to my audience. After the event, I received numerous compliments on Paul. His message definitely resonated with the audience. I would recommend Paul as a keynote and as a break-out or workshop presenter.”

Rich Schmelzer, VP Project Management Institute

“With more than 20 years experience in Human Resources, I have attended more than a few seminars on leadership. It is rare that I feel engaged in the presentation for more than a few minutes. However, when I heard Dr. Schempp present “What Business Leaders Can Learn From Great Coaches”, I was not only engaged, I was intrigued at this innovative way of looking at leadership. It was an interesting perspective that made me look at leadership through a different lens. He has a great combination of academic research and interesting stories that give him credibility and listening power. Dr. Schempp is an outstanding choice for a keynote or workshop presenter for a wide variety of leaders. The opportunity to explore lessons from great coaches is a great return on investment!”

VP Human Resources, Oklahoma State Univ

“Paul was fantastic!  His delivery was effective and impactful.  I was thrilled with his presentation!”

Susannah Porr, Executive Director, National Steel Pipe Distributors Assoc

“What a fantastic session! It was worth the cost of attending INBOUND 2017.”

Vince Mayfield, CEO & Co-Founder, Bit Wizards IT Services

“Paul was very easy to work with and paid great attention to detail when we spoke to him about our company and our goals for his presentation. Paul’s message was clearly customized to meet those goals and was enthusiastically delivered and received. I highly recommend Paul to anyone looking for expertise in mentorship, coaching or performance improvement.”
