It was fantastic getting such a different perspective on employee engagement. The approach, differing wildly from the typical speaker format we usually rely on, offered a fresh take on what usually involves dense business language. It left employees delighted and keen to implement the changes Penelope highlighted in her presentation.
We had the opportunity to attend the amazing closing keynote address by Penelope Tobin. This truly unique multi-media presentation involved Penelope’s amazing voice and piano playing, accompanied by a local jazz band. All this was coordinated to her powerful power point presentation, providing an exceptional sensory experience. As I looked around, I found the audience of 1500 to be mesmerized! Thank you for an incredible, thought-provoking experience!
I’ve read many, many books on leadership over the years. The Jazz of Business spoke to me the most. There is power in every page. And fantastic insights of our current malaise of left-focus dominance in our leadership culture. I am ordering 20 books for starters to distribute to some key people here and some others in my outside network.
Penelope really “jazzed up“ our Team Summit. Her presentation tied in directly in a practical way both with our theme – Communication for Dispersed Teams – and the work we have been doing with her over the last year. The way Penelope broke it down for the entire group and inspired us to be both collaborative and inventive was magnificent. This set a tone that resonated beyond just her session and continues to do so for our colleagues throughout the US today.
You gave a brilliant talk and were a real pleasure to work with!
Penelope was a delight to work with! Everything was perfect…..the way she worked with the production company in making sure everything was communicated clearly, to the way she worked with the local jazz band, to how she performed. Let me emphasize perform…wow!!!! Having Penelope end the conference was the perfect choice! The theme of our conference was Trust Me and the way she tied her message to the theme was brilliant.
This was one of the best presentations I have ever been to! Now I understand the fusion between jazz and the business organisation. I recommend this any day.
You made the WIT event such a fab event. You are brilliant and I am soooooooo happy that I met you!!
Thank you so much for such an engaging and thoroughly enjoyable session. All the feedback has been exceptionally positive – you were truly terrific and greatly appreciated by everyone.
I loved your presentation; it was interesting, intriguing, insightful and unique…as you are!
One of the most illuminating talks I’ve been to. Penelope got me thinking about change management in an entirely different way.
Loved Penelope!!! I feel like she summed up what the two days were all about and echoed many of the messages I had heard. The presentation was creative, engaging and insightful. She really captured where leadership and business should be going right now.
In her ‘Jazz of Business’ presentation Penelope made a wonderful connect between two seemingly juxtaposed topics. I was left with food for thought as her message reverberated long after I left.
