Marcus Buckingham Text Reviews
Our audience of 7500 business leaders and owners from more than 50 countries is a tough crowd to please. Over the years and during each of our events, they have heard multiple world class speakers and have a thirst for knowledge and actionable takeaways. Marcus Buckingham was rated as the best speaker of Nordic Business Forum 2018. He delivered with an outstanding energy, gave concrete examples for takeaways and left our audience with a smile as the last speaker of the day. Outstanding and memorable performance" - Aslak de Silva, CEO of Nordic Business Forum, 2018 "11 on a scale of 10."
We had the pleasure of hosting Marcus at our EntreLeadership Summit event in San Diego in 2019. In addition to hitting a homerun on his keynote for the 4000 small business owners in the audience, he also wowed our 250 VIP's with a thought-provoking conversation at their Q&A lunch. He and his team were amazing, and we're continuing to look for more opportunities to work with him again.
"Marcus was truly fantastic. He really worked to understand our reality and worked in a few of our key concepts. I can't think of anything he could have done differently. I would highly recommend Marcus as a speaker. He's very engaging and his message is great.

"Marcus Buckingham was GREAT! I got a lot of positive feedback from all our company's participants, and consider the meeting to be very successful overall. Working with Marcus Buckingham and his team was a fantastic experience.
Marcus Buckingham was just starting to interest and charm 4,000-plus Walgreen store managers when the fire alarm in the huge Las Vegas ballroom went off. Disembodied hotel voices announced all was OK, but the crowd grew noticeably anxious as bright lights continued to flash. Not Marcus and before too long, not our audience. His well-researched and very well-delivered remarks overcame adversity few speakers ever encounter. Our managers ranked Buckingham the #1 speaker of the meeting, topping the perennial favourites - our CEO and president. What impressed us all was how well Marcus had done his homework. This was no generic speech - it related to our business and our people, in a motivating, challenging and useful way.
On a scale from 1 to 10, Marcus was a "10". Marcus was excellent. He was engaging, interesting, thought-provoking, funny and very genuine. It was BigSpeak's idea that we use him and my agent could not have been more spot-on. Service was excellent at every stage in the process.
