On hearing Dr. Rogelberg…

“Dr. Rogelberg was the highlight of our conference.  Not only was he incredibly engaging, but he was highly entertaining! We came away with practical, real world insights and useful tips, strategies and suggestions.  I still think about his session to this day and how to apply it to my work.”

- Gabrielle D. Phillips, Senior Corporate Counsel at Syneos Health

“Steven Rogelberg’s research is both timely and seminal to the area of improving one of our most fundamental management processes, that of meetings. He is quoted widely from everyone from the Washington Post, CBS News and even referenced by Eric Schmidt, Jonathan Rosenberg and Alan Eagle in Trillion Dollar Coach. Steven's ability to present and discuss his work is a unique combination of humor, straight-talk and academic prowess. If you are looking for someone to speak to your leaders or leadership classes would highly recommend Steven as a highly engaging ( even downright fun) presenter.”

-Dr. Karen B. Paul, Executive Planning and External Relations, Human Resources: Learning, Engagement & Inclusion

“Steven is engaging and energizing speaker who translates what we know from science into what we can do differently to make our workplaces better. He has an approachable style that instantly connects with the audience and catches their attention.”

- Allen Church, SVP Global Talent Assessment & Development at PepsiCo

”We engaged Dr. Rogelberg to speak at a team offsite for the Cisco Collaboration Group. He was an extraordinary speaker: illuminating, dynamic, and funny! His expertise in the science behind meetings is unrivaled, and our team left with many new insights and ideas that will have a material impact on our collaboration business.”

-Val Agostino, Senior Director, Product Management at Cisco Collaboration Group

“Professor Rogelberg delivered two outstanding leadership webinars as part of our company’s internal leadership development series, highlighting his latest research on meeting effectiveness. Virtually delivered programs are always a challenge but Steve connected very well with his audience, using creative engagement strategies such as pre-program surveys in quick polls, while partnering very effectively with our company’s internal leadership development group in designing the learning strategy. The programs saw the highest volume of participants (participation is voluntary) and he received outstanding ratings for both programs. Most important, Steve’s ideas continue to resonate with our leaders as they are continuing to apply his principles for more effective meetings.”

-Dr. Hank Jonas, Manager Organization Effectiveness at Corning Incorporated

“Working with Steven was great from start to finish. His workshop was engaging, informative, and relevant. Participants reported being able to immediately take the concepts back to their work and make improvements based on the lessons Steven shared. I look forward to working with him again.”

-Dr. Holly Whisman, VP of Grants & Services at the Arts and Sciences Council

“This will be the third time we’ve engaged Steven as a keynote speaker and he has never failed to deliver….not only because of his incredible expertise and ability to address any question from our very savvy audience of CEOs, but also, because he is  down to earth, relates so well to our attendees, and presents the information in a way that our audience gains deep understandings and new tools to go back and actually make a real difference.”

-Jeannie Grigg,  Vice President of The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement (Formerly SAWA)
