I was in charge of speakers for our Alabama SHRM state conference. I must first say Scott was a pleasure to work with. Due to travel issues, he arrived around 2:00 am, but no one could tell! He was 100% on and delivered a fantastic keynote. Scott was the ultimate professional and definitely wanted to understand our audience so he could deliver the best opening keynote for 2018 ALSHRM conference.

His story was riveting and we greatly appreciated how he explained HR’s impact on him on a personal level. Not only did Scott’s presentation deliver practical, applicable advice for business professionals and leaders it also showed the human side of business! He engaged with attendees and offered to answer questions from all. I would highly recommend Scott Lesnick for your conference/event!

A business colleague of mine recently raved about Scott’s presentation as a leadership keynote speaker at a large national conference she attended. She was so impressed that she recommended I reach out to him to present. I am so glad that I did. Scott gives an amazing presentation that is well suited for business professionals, leaders and all levels of employees. I highly recommend hiring Scott to speak at your company or event. He is very relatable and friendly, and creates a great rapport with the audience. The messages he conveys stays with you long after his presentation and will leave you thinking and motivated long after the meeting has ended.

Scott recently presented a keynote in Denver during our Make it Safe, Make it Home conference. Before he even stepped foot on stage he took the time to do his homework and learn all about our association and membership which proved valuable as he was able to connect and engage the audience. In addition, he willing accepted an invitation to support us by instructing a breakout session on another of his topics to a well-attended crowed. Besides he’s remarkable story, his speaking style captures you and takes you along for the ride. Scott is not only professional but a real leader. He intertwines himself with the attendee’s challenges and goals! Scott will come in as your speaker but leave as your friend.

Scott presented not once, but twice at Northwestern Mutual! His first presentation was Successfully Navigating Change” and the second “Understanding and Communicating With the 5 Generations”.

Scott is very easy and flexible to work with; and goes over and beyond to make his presentations relevant and powerful for his audiences. Scott is entertaining, informative and shared a lot of great information. He did an outstanding job and received excellent feedback from the participants!

Scott’s keynote presentation was full of information designed to encourage our attendees to learn new methods to gain their manager’s confidence, as well as increase confidence in their own skills. Using the ideas you provided in your presentation, our attendees will certainly become the one to shine in their offices when they return to work following our conference and showcase their new skills!”

“We booked Scott Lesnick for our statewide annual meeting based upon repeated, glowing recommendations from one of our chapters. Scott communicated regularly with our Program Chair and the conference venue to make the logistics of Kidjacked and Winning Your Manager’s Confidence a breeze for us. His program summaries also qualified for continuing education credits.

He spent some social time with our group in advance of his presentations, which made us friends before he ever spoke a word into the microphone. His management background, stories, and breakout exercises imparted important professional lessons about focus, communication, change management, and perseverance.

In a world full of challenges, Scott’s fundamental reminders to “Never Give Up” are crucial to personal and professional success. I would heartily recommend him to any group!

TXANFP members rated you as one of the best speakers. You tailored the presentations to our association and that was commendable. You set the tone for a successful conference. A wonderful keynote!

During the planning process you were one of the most committed speakers I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. Your willingness to help us prior to the conference was very much appreciated. Mr. Lesnick you showed that you believe in the Association of Nutrition & Food Service Professionals and you were not offering a service just for money. Your willingness to work with us financially was over and beyond you were very much deserving of more. I wish all the speakers I work with could be as generous and caring about the outcome of their efforts as you are.

I highly recommend you to all chapters of the Association of Nutrition & Food Service Professionals. We look forward to having you as a speaker in the coming year.

Scott Lesnick is a very dynamic speaker. We were privileged to have him as our keynote speaker at the 23rd Annual Illinois Statewide Payroll Conference recently. He shared a very personal story based on a book he wrote about his own life experience to “Never give up”. I read his book “Kidjacked ~ a Fathers Story” before the conference, new where he was going and how it ended but was still very moved by his presentation and actionable takeaways. Scott was able to bring various stages on how and why not to give up. He has motivated our members to work hard on achieving their CPP’s by never giving up. We have received great feedback on Scott’s presentation.

Inspirational, thought-provoking, fascinating are all words I would use to describe the captivating story that Scott Lesnick tells through his very personal experience.

A great fit for HR Professionals and more. The structure of his prose brings the audience into his world where he takes everyone on a journey in a profoundly difficult time in his life and vividly illustrates how he persevered and overcame major obstacles. His story is the quintessential basis for pursuing your passion(s) professionally and personally especially if things appear bleak.

Scott Lesnick was a keynote and breakout speaker for our Spring ANFP meeting and did an excellent job. I would highly recommend him for a motivational speaker for almost any group. Our whole group gave him top ratings on the evaluation.

If you’re looking for a speaker to motivate your audience, contact Scott Lesnick. More than a motivational speaker, Scott speaks from the heart with passion, sharing a powerful, real-life success story on persistence and how never to give up. He was a hit at our annual fall conference.

When Scott paused momentarily in his presentation, you could’ve heard a pin drop. He is a gifted speaker with a heart-wrenching story – one that brought tears and ‘goose bumps’ to the businesswomen gathered at our luncheon. His amazing journey to get his children safely back home is a lesson on never giving up – no matter how many hurdles need to be jumped.

Scott Lesnick is a masterful storyteller who captured the audience the moment he introduced himself. He asked thoughtful questions along the way so that we too could think about our own actions and feelings. He left us all wanting more…

Scott volunteered to become a facilitator for our ‘Dad Matters’ fatherhood group. Within weeks of his training he had become comfortable and knowledgeable with the materials, and aware of the needs of individuals in the group. He has the ability to relate to people no matter their background. When confronted with a tough situation he is open to taking counsel and adapting his approach to fit the needs of those in the group. Scott enjoys people and makes them feel at ease. It is apparent that Scott cares deeply about helping people to better themselves and those around them.

Our group enjoyed Scott’s keynote presentation immensely. It was inspiring and educational. We left feeling more motivated and he gave us some great new tools to utilize.
