Peace of mind comes from working with professionals.

Bill Catlette and Richard Hadden have delivered hundreds of high-impact keynote presentations in more than 20 years of professional speaking. When you ask us to keynote your conference or convention, you can relax – at least when it comes to our part of your meeting – knowing that you’ve hired a professional to speak to your group.

To us, being professional means, among other things, doing your homework… each time, every time. We invest the time and energy to learn enough about your group or audience to make our presentation truly relevant to them. Most people seem to appreciate that. While you may be able to hire speakers with bigger names (and bigger fees), it’s doubtful you’ll hire anybody who is better prepared.

Our keynote presentations are:

Contented Cows Give Better Milk – Your People…Your Profits
Leadership, and the Bottom Line Value of having a focused, engaged, and capably led workforce, based on the principles in Bill’s and Richard’s popular book, Contented Cows Give Better Milk.

Rebooting Leadership
Based on Bill’s and Richard’s newest book (written with Meredith Kimbell), a hard-hitting, practical presentation on leadership in the “new world”, a world where all the rules have changed, the “deal” in the workplace has been turned on its head, trust is at a low point, and speed is the key differentiator among competitors. While the fundamentals of leadership have not changed, the way we practice those fundamentals must reflect today’s new realities.

Work is Contractual…Effort is Personal
Based on our 2007 book, Contented Cows MOOve Faster, this is all about Discretionary Effort, Employee Engagement, and what good leaders do to get people to put more OOMPH! into their work.

Leading Through the Storm
An inspirational, yet practical message for leaders in a tough economy. Learn at least six ways to keep your workforce focused and fired up in uncertain economic times, and prepare your workforce for the recovery to come.

The Journey Thus Far: Foundations for a Fabulous Future!
Delivered by Richard Hadden only. Highly entertaining, motivational keynote celebrating your people, your organization, and your successes.
