"YOU, SIR, ARE A SPELLBINDER!", said the director of a nursery association.  "WHY DID IT TAKE SO LONG FOR US TO FIND YOU?", asked the director of the Water Well Drilling Association.  "PERHAPS THE BEST SPEAKER I'VE EVER HEARD", was the comment from the Associated General Contractors of America, and "... THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE MEETING", reported the State Bar of California.
     Is Larry Helms the best speaker on the national circuit today?   To be honest, that is a very subjective judgment.  But, he is very, very good and very, very professional.  The New York Events Planner's Guide said: "Larry Helms is one of the most popular and successful speakers and seminar leaders ... today.   A top-notch speaker who communicates practical information in an entertaining and humorous manner."
     A good index of a speaker's quality is the number of repeat engagements.  Dr. Helms averages over 80 presentations a year, and over 70% are with previous clients!  He is not a one-dimensional speaker, as his recent clients have included nursery associations, bankers, realtors, lawyers, doctors, credit unions, government bureaus ... and a host of state, regional and national trade and professional associations.  In the past years, he has been asked to address The American Society of Association Executives (four
times!), the Canadian Society of Association Executives, the National Association of Exposition Managers, the Professional Convention Management Association, and Societies of Association Executive in Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Texas, Minnesota, Idaho, Georgia, the Northern California Society, the Sacramento Society, the Kansas City Society and the Western Conference of Association Executives.  He was awarded the National Speakers' Association prestigious "Certified Speaking Professional" designation in 1988.

     The following letter is a typical reaction to Larry's presentations:

"Your Topic 'Positioning to Win' was perfect for our annual banquet.   Little did I know I was 'Positioning to Win' when I hired you.  You brought down the house, Larry.  The multitudinous laughter was music to my ears; the mega-message you delivered was music to my heart."
