“Your participation as one of our Featured Speakers at our 24th Indian Wells Valley Economic Outlook Conference held on February 10, 2011 was highly received by our Chamber members, the City of Ridgecrest Council and City staff, and the community members that attended. Your presentation on “Innovate to Thrive” was timely, upbeat, and gave the audience a necessary awareness of how they can apply your “Robert’s Rules of Innovation” as a strategy to develop an innovative business culture to meet their individual business goals in providing products and services to the Ridgecrest, China Lake and surrounding communities.

I strongly recommend “Innovate to Thrive” to all Chamber of Commerce’s of both small and large cities. Both small and large business members of a Chamber will take away pertinent ideas to help them innovate through local and global economic changes that are occurring and will continue to occur in the short and long terms.”

“Robert Brands was a speaker for our global conference general session and led a separate workshop for our team leaders. We were very pleased with the results. His General Session presentation detailed the competitive need and urgency to innovate. He inspired our team to think big and innovatively. The workshop was very positive with great energy – it defined innovation and included concrete exercises that resulted in new ideas, collaboration and innovative thought. He helped break down barriers to stimulate ideas for new relevant products. Even the skeptics were swayed into enthusiasm.”

“Robert’s message was timely, inspiring and right on target. Our industry faces unprecedented competition and increased pressure to generate profits. “Robert’s Rules of Innovation” will provide valuable direction. Although only a few days have passed since Robert’s message was heard, I’ve already received comments from members about ideas for new products. PFA members had good things to say about Robert’s presentation, including, “Where did you find such a great speaker?” I thank Robert for making our trade association management team look very good. I especially appreciate the time spent to learn about our industry and the way Robert fine tuned his message for the members of our trade association.”

“Robert’s presentation to my BIG Breakfast group scores a 10 out of 10. This group of entrepreneurs is tough to impress but he sure did. The collective attention span of this group is normally about 1 minute. He kept them engaged for the full hour. I think the difference is that he has walked in their shoes. They love learning from someone with a record of proven business results. Very very happy. Thank you again”

“Robert was a presenter at the recent Open Innovation Conference which took place in Orlando. Prior to the event, He was instrumental in the development of the overall conference content which touted as outstanding by most of it’s 100+ executive attendees. Robert played a crucial role in presenting at the event when one of our original presenters fell very ill and could not attend at the last minute. In addition to being tremendous well prepared, professional and supportive in coming to plate with almost no notice, Robert delivered content that was timely and of high value to the entire delegation. His presentation received excellent feedback and I would recommend him as a presenter and as business partner to anyone who asked…”
