It was great working with you. Your recommendations gave us very good perspective on improving our operations. We’ve implemented or are in the process of implementing your recommendations.
Thank you Chris for coming to talk to our FHCE 3350 Apartment Property Residential Management Class today at The University of Georgia. It was very informative and enjoyable. Great, enthusiastic speaker! A real joy to be able to hear speak! Thank you again!
Chris Ryan-Lawrence truly lives by the Fish Philosophy. He has inspired me to live in the moment, regardless what struggles I embrace. This has instilled in me the ability to work hard in everything I do, and ensure that I’m having fun doing it. By doing so it changes the atmosphere and causes a positive energy that draws people in and causes a change in those around me. I’m very blessed to have known him!
Your presentation far exceeded any expectations I might have had, moreover I was really quite fascinated as to how well you constructed the content of our teams engagement. From minute one you had everyone’s attention and kept it. I have had the privilege of being flown all over the US by different companies to watch and learn from poignant speakers and what you gave us was second to none. How is the team responding you ask? Mostly good with the 80/20 rule still there, but fret not; I recall nearly to the entirety every word you said, every glance and lift of the eyebrow…..Will they remember what they have learned in two weeks? You betcha because I’m the one to lead them and what you taught us was far too valuable to forget. Thank you Chris, you profoundly changed the way I used to know how to manage and lead a team. Thanks for the ARK that lit our fire!!
I just wanted to let you and everyone know that Chris Ryan-Lawrence is an amazing speaker! His Power of ONE seminar really made me open my eyes and see that I was the problem for my past and that I need to take control of my future……now! If everyone would just listen to Chris, I am sure we would have a better world to live in. His passion for what he preaches and believes in is extremely infectious and has helped me out in my first week after hearing him. I am proud to call Chris a friend as well as an advocate to lead me down this new journey!
“It was a pleasure listening to Chris Ryan-Lawrence present at a recent corporate event. He charged up the team to find smart ways to challenge the status quo daily, and this is what defines whether your company fits in or stands out in highly competitive industries. Thanks Chris for sharing your wealth of knowledge and experience!”
Inspiring. Thought-provoking. And might I add, entertaining! Your presentation showed me how changing my perspective by asking the right questions can impact an entire organization. Knowing I can make that big of a difference is powerful and I left feeling empowered! Thank you!
As someone that has never enjoyed a traditional work ‘seminar’ or ‘training’, I have to say that the time we spent with Chris was worth every second. He didn’t spend hours talking about his own successes and in the last 15 minutes turn to an action list of ‘How You Can Too!’.
He was engaging and entertaining while using every chance he had as a teaching opportunity. He’s not afraid to be honest with everyone in the room about what it takes to become the best possible you. He truly does want to empower others to be better employees, leaders, and overall better, happier people.
When I first met Chris, he told me about some of his unbelievable sales numbers. Unbelievable, as in, I really did not believe him. They couldn’t be true. I was well aware of the industry standards, and I ‘knew’ that no company could produce numbers like those. Or at the very least, those numbers couldn’t be sustained in the long run.
Chris was one of the most engaging guest speakers we have had. His dynamo personality and inner-passion gave us vision for our future success paths. Chris shared his secrets to achieving the unachievable and encouraged us to ask ourselves questions I never thought to ask myself. Thanks for speaking to us here in Blacksburg!
I wanted to thank you for inspiring me further from your lecture! I have always had a strong interest in all types of real estate and have been teetering back and forth on which type to pursue. You just may have convinced me! Thanks again and I look forward to your next guest speaker appearance!
There are so many inspiring traits that I could emphasize in a testimonial to Chris’s leadership, however a single sentiment is in the forefront of my thoughts… ‘Building through Belief.’ Chris has a precise and keen eye to hone in on, and build on, strengths in individuals and teams. He then takes those strengths and builds better, moreover, successful and positive teams. I have seen Chris inspire people believe in themselves and their potential; growing their abilities further than they even realized possible. He lights a fire in people on the inside, in turn they want to succeed, not only for themselves, but for the belief that he recognized in them.
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Chris for ten years. His ability to dissect situations and projects that seem complicated and turn them into achievable tasks is well above anyone else. He engages people with his energy, sells them on the goal and works alongside of the team until perfection is achieved. His determination guarantees that he will deliver what he promises and his seminars are top notch. In all of my experiences with Chris he has over delivered every time.
So I am going in my senior year at the Univer Of West Florida in International Buisness and Economics. In the next 5 year I want to start my own oil Refinery called Valmore’s Place. I really enjoyed the speech I suffer greatly with perfectionism and I believe the information will really help and the cromssroad part was a tremendous help
