Doc delivers a very inspiring story of how one person can make a difference. His story covers many continents and tragedies with a central and simple theme of providing safe water. In today's complex world, he takes you back to the basics and points out that sometimes the simplest solutions provide the best outcome. His story is transferable to many aspects of life where mission, passion and service intersect. While his story creates impact at the highest level, you leave inspired to make a difference as well.

Thanks again for participating in the Spectrum Health event last week. We have been hearing nothing but great comments about your presentation. Several people have approached me and said that it was the best keynote we have ever had for this event! Thanks again for such a powerful, motivational presentation!

There is one thing that rings true every time I get the pleasure of hearing Doc Hendley speak--his passion comes through and hits you like nothing you've ever experienced in your lifetime. It's not just the way he interacts with the audience, a sort of down home person that you seem to already know even though you don't, but it's the message about improving who we are as people each and every day, and helping those who have difficulty helping themselves because of places they live in or the circumstances of their country. Doc brings that message of hope and seems to naturally lift every person out of their comfort chair and into the wilds of Africa or the devastation in Haiti right alongside him. You feel everything that he feels and see everything that he saw. We are just enamored to be part of his world in a small way and hoping to work with him to better our world in a meaningful way.

Doc was amazing! It was the most well-attended event in the seven-year history.

ur recent Transportation Conference was chock-full of technical sessions and we wanted something motivating, inspiring more personal for the keynote address. Doc was the perfect solution to mix things up for the attendees and once I contacted the See Agency, everything went seamlessly. As the event planner for this organization, I have never seen a room full of engineers give a standing ovation for a speaker and Doc brought this crowd to their feet. Attendees stood in line just to shake Doc's hand and say thank you - thank you for inspiring me, thank you for telling us your story, thank you for reminding us we all can make a difference. Event planners take note: if you choose to book Doc for your event, you absolutely will impress every attendee, every Board member, every guest, every client - and YOU will know you made a difference by making that choice. What an honor it is to have helped spread Doc's message!

Our conference on May 8th went very well and Doc Hendley was the perfect closing speaker for the day. Most of our guests (myself included) remarked that he was the most inspiring speaker they had ever seen. And further, Doc stayed for our cocktail reception and interacted with our group. A truly incredible individual, we could not be happier with the results of Doc Hendley's program and visit to our national conference.
