What People Say After The Manager Hiring Training Workshops
There was a great, positive energy created by Brad’s approach to the topic; pulling in audience participation and real-life examples of do’s and don’ts. He is clearly an expert at engaging an audience and making his subject matter meaningful to his audience in a very practical, real-world way. Brad also responded extremely well to the Q&A segment of our program, which, due to the nature of our group requires extraordinarily good listening and “think on your feet” skills.
I have had the pleasure of participating in numerous programs over the last 10 years where Brad was either the primary speaker or the emcee. He has always had a special knack for connecting with his audience, whether it is large or small. Brad is always on point, to the point, and packing significant energy and passion about his subject material. material. Again, I am pleased to recommend Brad as a terrific speaker for
Thank you so much for your informative and insightful presentation. We truly appreciate you sharing your time, talent, and expertise with us. It was thoughtful and entertaining of you to add personal stories. I loved your enthusiasm and honesty; it really increased the energy flow in the room and engaged our members in a lively discussion.
Once the Success Factor Methodology program was in place and managers were trained in its methodology, poor hiring decisions were virtually eliminated. Your systematic approach to hiring is solid, realistic and reproducible across the entire organization.
I have to share with you this highlight. One of the Company Presidents I work for shared with me that he knew about your hiring system several years ago but failed to implement it then. When I joined the Company and re‐introduced him to the Success Factor Methodology system, this same President shared with me that he regretted not implementing your system years ago. He expressed to me that if he had implemented your system three years ago, his company’s revenues today would have exceeded $100 million in annual sales instead of holding steady at $65 million for the past three years. He attributes this stagnation and lack of company growth to the poor hiring decisions his management team has made over the past three years. That speaks volumes to the success of your Success Factor Methodology Program

I want to thank you for your presentation of “You’re NOT The Person I Hired” to our management team. The feedback for the team has been excellent. They were engaged with our presentation style, you answered their questions honestly and most important of all they learned a lot about the right way to hire. We have implemented the concepts from your presentation and have noticed a significant improvement in our interviewing and hiring standards. We are actively implementing your ideas on attracting top talent and are seeing the pay-off with the caliber of candidates we are attracting.
There was great concern from the team regarding the need for this and the time commitment of a half-day, however, it is clear from the feedback and the results we have received the time was well spent.
Brad is an engaging speaker with deep experience in his field. He gives solid advice with candor and conviction and isn’t afraid to offer provocative solutions to today’s problems. In addition, Brad’s books offer great information for attracting and retaining A players.
I've heard literally hundreds of speakers on business topics over the more than 20 years I've served as Chairman for two groups of CEOs - few, very few, have delivered a message that resonated as well as Brad Remillard's. His no-nonsense, bottom line up approach to hiring will significantly reduce the number of bad hires, and hence the turnover, in my member's companies.
Remillard demonstrates conclusively that a hiring interview can be a high probability predictor of the likely on the job success of every candidate.
Brad Remillard’s presentation on “How to Leverage LinkedIn” came highly recommended; we were not disappointed. He spoke to our breakfast group of over 50 influential OC business leaders, most of whom were energetically keeping notes and asking questions. The content was very practical and timely; the feedback we received was unanimously positive. We definitely will ask Brad to speak at future events.
