I have been a top-performing Master Chair at Vistage International for over 20 years, having invited and assessed nearly 200 speakers in that time frame.
As soon as I heard glowing endorsements about Dr. Rao from other high performing Chairs, I immediately asked him to come to my groups. Following those presentations, several Vistage members said Dr. Rao was one of the top few speakers they had heard in their ten plus years of meetings.
After working as a group to practice his teachings, everyone couldn’t wait to implement his ideas into their lives and businesses. I can say that I personally was able to put both my business leadership and my marriage on a new plane overnight and this has changed my life forever.
We were fortunate to have Dr. Rao as our resource speaker for my Vistage CEO board meeting this month. While Dr. Rao is a well-known professor and speaker, he is new to Vistage, and what a wonderful addition. In his workshop, he invites us to examine our mindset and create a new reality and gives us practical tools for doing so.
He received all 5’s from our members, rare for my group. I’ve seen all 5’s maybe half a dozen times in my 12 years as a Vistage Master Chair. One member with 15+ years said Dr. Rao was the best speaker he has had in Vistage. You can’t go wrong booking him for your team.
Dear Dr. Rao,
Thank you for the Keynote Speech you gave at the 28th International Montessori Congress, which was held 27-31 of July, 2017 in Prague, Czech Republic.
The Congress was attended by close to 1800 participants from 71 countries. We continue to receive emails and posts expressing immense thankfulness from many of the Congress participants who heard you speak. People feel inspired by you and they are thankful that they could hear you and learn from your wisdom and experience. They feel called to share your message with their colleagues back in their schools and also with families at home. It was a true honor for the Montessori movement that you came to our Congress.
The work of changing the world to a better place starts with every single one of us. It is important that we are often reminded of this responsibility. Your talk meant a lot to the Montessori movement in this regard.
Dr. Rao’s talk to my group was incredibly well received and I am very grateful to him. I gathered a group of my most important contacts consisting mainly of entrepreneurs, CEO’s, VC’s and corporate lawyers for a lunch to hear Dr. Rao speak. I can tell you the feedback I received was 100% positive. He had our whole group captivated from the beginning and held everyone’s attention the whole time. His stories and method of communication were enthralling. Everyone said the hour flew by and they wanted more.
He totally inspired my network and I know many people that attended are seeking an opportunity to hear and work with Dr. Rao. It was an incredible success and a home run in my effort to add value to my network. Thanks so much, Dr. Rao!
Dr. Srikumar Rao stands alone as a teacher, both to me and to the CEOs with whom I work. He offers the most thoughtful, most life-affirming teaching to the most effective business leaders — and lifts their performance and enjoyment in life to previously unimagined heights. He has done this for me and he has done this for CEOs who — like me — thought mastery had already been attained. With Dr. Rao’s teaching, mastery is achieved at a new level. I see his gift in my CEO colleagues — and in their continuing decision to train with Dr. Rao in his programs in New York.
As the Learning Chair and Board Member of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization Boston Chapter, I talk to dozens of speakers every year in planning out our calendar. Many sound the same, but Srikumar Rao came to me with a referral from an acquaintance that was such a strong endorsement, it was hard to take seriously. Dr. Rao saved this person from taking his life in a desperate period of his life. We booked Dr. Rao and he captivated the 100 or so entrepreneurs with his discussion of finding inner peace in a hectic world. He was funny, endearing and most of all, he left all of us with a perspective that will change our lives forever. Not to mention, he endured a hot, windy and noisy outdoor environment to deliver his message with a smile and grace. He’s a gentleman and a scholar. As promised, he delivered the highest rated event of the year in Boston. Thank you, Dr. Rao.
