From top to bottom, our staff have “because I said I would” cards taped, tacked and displayed in cubicles and offices to showcase how we have made and kept commitments. We have Alex to thank for that.

His presentation is perfect for the insurance industry. As he challenges all of us in his talk, we are financial advisors who make promises to our clients, prospects, and families on a daily basis. We must all keep those promises, but sadly, many promises go without following through. Every client is important, and every promise to them is just as important. By listening to the inspiration of Alex Sheen on stage, and how he continues to keep his promises, it reminds all of us in the audience to do the same.

His message really resonated with our community and the opening general session was one of our highest rated ever. It truly set the stage for a terrific conference. Our members cannot stop raving about the presentation.

Very energizing session. Really compelling stuff around the power of a promise. I can’t commend both the performance he has just given and indeed the work he is doing on the philanthropic agenda enough. Absolutely fantastic. Really great response from the participants and I think it has really made them think.
