Darren Woodson Text Reviews
We had a wonderful event. I had many comments that Darren's speech was right on the mark, and they are already asking when he can come back . Thank you!
For 13 years, Woodson was everything you could ask for -- unselfish, reliable, dependable, a team player first and a team leader always. He's a living, breathing example of the saying that character does matter.
He was an awesome speaker with a great message.
Darren really hit home the message of cultural differences between mediocre teams and winning teams. He truly left the room compelled to do more, give more, be more. Thank you, Darren, for an excellent keynote last night. The standing ovation was extremely deserved!
Darren was terrific. In fact, I just received a phone call from a senior executive telling me that Darren was one of the best speakers he had ever heard. He brought energy, empathy, humor and insight to all, even those without a love of the game (or the Cowboys!). He engaged in a friendly banter with our leader, agreed to throw footballs into the audience, recognized one of our employees for her work with Diversity & Inclusion, and stayed after making sure he got to every last person waiting for a photo, autograph and wanting to tell their story. He even did a video for someone who requested it!
Simply amazing. Fantastic speech - he tailored it to us and included information about his background. He was so easy to work with. He took lots of questions from the audience and stuck around for a LONG line of admiring fans for autographs and photos.
Darren Woodson had a great message to share with our executive partners. He was perfect, and he was polished. It was a message that has seeped so much into the fiber of our team that our executives continue referring to Darren's fundamentals long after the event.
"Darren delivered an outstanding and enthusiastic presentation to kick off our company meeting. I have had the unique opportunity to see Darren speak in person and virtually. I can say without a doubt that his energy, his thought provoking message, and his inspiring personal experiences are consistently delivered no matter the platform. Darren is dynamic in his presentation style and the feedback we received from Darren's presentation was consistently excellent. Thank you, Darren."
"Darren, it was truly a pleasure and great fun to meet you and I would like to express my sincere gratitude and thankfulness for you joining us in Pittsburgh. It is not an exaggeration here if I say that your presentation was a highlight of our QBR and the points that you made were impactful, valuable and aligned with the 'real world' which was refreshing. It is indeed difficult to 'manage emotions' while still holding onto the fact that we care so much about what we do for our clients, the patients they serve and for ourselves. Your words were motivating to our entire team. I hope that we are able to have you and your gorgeous rings back again. Thank you."
He was fantastic, so much fun, and absolutely over delivered. Our attendees loved his stories and everything he shared.
Darren was the perfect closing Keynote Speaker for our company's Leading the Way Sales Conference. His high energy, personal stories, and compelling message perfectly illustrated the importance of leadership and personal responsibility in every aspect of life.
Darren creatively used humor and audience participation to keep attendees engaged. This was reinforced in the event follow up survey where he received the highest scores and was recognized as the highlight of the conference.
