Probably the most inspirational session of the whole course. Whoever decided to include this in the program should be congratulated. David’s view of life and business was a brilliant complement to the rest of the program.

Thank you for joining us and providing an incredibly inspirational and spiritual end to our first annual P2 conference. I'm not much of a poetry buff, but I have seldom been impacted as profoundly by words and images as you managed to do to me yesterday. Everyone I spoke with commented about how effectively you were able to convey the power of words and images. We will be having more conversations across the community and within our respective organizations as we move forward to address our challenge. I hope many if not all will be courageous.

Thank you so much for speaking at the National College’s Annual Conference this year. I thought it was an excellent speech and was one of the top highlights of a very successful conference. It had humor, humanity, challenge, authenticity and resonance, and it was a terrific way to end the conference.
— Steve Munby, CEO Children's Services, The National College
David Whyte just gave our firm the best presentation I have ever heard in a television and PR career of 23 years. The feedback has been phenomenal.
— Head of Corporate Affairs Standard Chartered Wholesale Bank

"It was a pleasure to have you keynote our Annual Advanced Coach Seminar here in Santa Barbara. Your poetry, your presence and your stories were powerful and memorable for all... We've just finished the feedback survey and the ratings for your session are as close to 10's as I've seen - a sure sign you spoke to us in a language that resonated deeply."

- Pamela McLean, Ph.D.
  CEO, The Hudson Institute

Feedback has been quite extraordinary from your presentations to the Bottom Line Conference. “It was great to receive inspiration rather than ‘information’”; and from a bank manager: “I had a staff person come to see me, very upset, and I ended up quoting David Whyte and actually read her a poem or two”. Many referred to ‘the poet’ as being the ‘best presentation’ - from firefighters to senior managers! ...there are a group of professionals now clearly interacting with ‘conversations’: those that experienced your workshop, and each of us takes that back to our parent organization/corporation.

"Short of a Biblical Miracle, I cannot imagine one human being having a deeper impact on an audience of 3,000 ... than you had at this year's event".

Just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much everyone enjoyed and learned from your presentation at the IRS Compliance Leadership Conference. The feedback was terrific. You are a joy to be around and I am so grateful for your time. It was such a treat to be able to bring you to our workplace ... So again, thanks.
— Rich Stanich, Internal Revenue Service
Many thanks indeed for your wonderful session at our SOAR seminar last Wednesday. It was a big success with everyone who was there. They were all very inspired and moved by your ability to explain their world through the poetry. Even some I would not have expected to embrace this did do so. I think as you told me the evening before, it was your job to make sure that they all did, and they did!
— Grace MacArthur, Mattel

"I just wanted to thank you enormously for the excellent Staff Conference you led at our school. It was a tremendously uplifting occasion which enabled our very hardworking staff to receive rather than give for once: a real treat for everyone...I would thoroughly recommend your support to any school - state or independent, primary or secondary - because I am sure staff everywhere face the same sort of pressures, some more so than others."

- Janine Robinson

As we didn’t have the chance for another talk in Kitzbühel, let me send you a very big thank you for your impressive speech...We couldn’t have had anyone fitting better than you did!
— Corporate Communications, Linde Group, München, Germany
The true success of any event is not in the number of people attending, but the quality of the experience provided ... Thanks again for gracing our event with your presence.
