| "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
