What Dave’s Clients Are Saying
“Canada’s capital city has a workforce of over 17,000 people, representing a wide variety of skills and responsibilities. As City Manager, my vision is to develop a one city/one team culture of servant leadership. We hired Dave Howlett to deliver a series of keynotes and workshops for leaders and employees. His powerful 3-gear method reinforced a servant leader mindset that was well received.”
“We poll our people every year on the quality of the speaker. The 2015 top speaker earned a 8.2, Dave came in at a 9.1. Leadership and culture can be a dry topic. Any company or association who wants an entertaining and humorous speaker who creates behavior change should consider hiring Dave Howlett.”
“NAV CANADA was seeking a speaker to help staff become more self-aware of their interactions and behaviors and to increase employee engagement. Dave customized his presentation to reflect our goals and was very effective in the manner he was able to communicate with our staff. 90% of our employees ranked it as one of the top three presentations they had ever seen and 92% agreed that employees shifting to 3rd gear behavior would improve the effectiveness of our organization. I would recommend Dave Howlett to anyone who is seeking to both inspire and influence their employees.”
“I would recommend Dave Howlett to any multi-national interested in knocking down silos and improving employee cooperation and communication.”
“Our staff work in a variety of settings, including office, roads crew, water treatment services, building inspection, fire services, and parks and recreation. Staff, comprised mainly of men, were somewhat apprehensive to attend customer service/culture training prior to the talk but found that Dave Howlett’s RHB ‘good guy/amazing woman’ concept really resonated with them. I would recommend Dave and RHB to any City Manager who wants to get a diverse workforce to shift gears.”
