Two years after our National Sales Meeting, people are still talking about Victoria Labalme's event. She had my entire sales team laughing, listening, applauding - and most importantly - learning. One never forgets a Grand Slam. Victoria rocked the house.

When we went looking for a unique speaker for our company's sales program, we searched the usual suspect's resumes. Then we found Victoria. And what a find. She delivered. Pure and simple. She is funny, poignant, dramatic, visual - in short, the total package. I highly recommend Victoria for a program of any size, for any industry, global or domestic.

Rob Freeman, Zone Sales Director, Starbucks

Your "Communication Moves" event was the talk and "WOW" of my Zone Sales Meeting. I had a least two dozen people approach me after your program to share some very positive feedback. My entire sales team got some great working tools from your program that they can take into their daily lives and make a positive and measurable difference. You inspired my team tremendously (and me as well), and we have not been able to stop talking about your program. From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you for a great day, a great experience, and most of all, a great performance that we will never forget.

Thank you again for such a phenomenal job at our two events the last few weeks! I don't think I have ever worked with anyone who has so completely and efficiently immersed themselves into our organization and customized their approach to our groups as you have. Both the "communication" and keynotes sessions at our Sales Meeting and the keynote at our Dealer Summit were a HUGE hit and you delivered in a big, big way. We really appreciate you taking the time and going the extra mile to make good on your promise to deliver for us!

When Western Union hosted an incentive trip as a reward for its sales force that overachieved their sales quotas, we wanted a presenter who would be uplifting and inspirational. Well, we were very lucky to find Victoria Labalme. Victoria spent s lot of time prior to the event researching our company, and her ability to relate to what we go through was truly inspiring. Our attendees talked about her presentation for the next two days. I would hire Victoria in a heartbeat for any corporate event.

From beginning to end, Victoria captivated the room with her energy and precision. Over 600 people sat riveted as they went from laughing to crying to applauding.

Working with Victoria was an absolute pleasure; I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Victoria always made us feel like we were her most valuable client, by giving us special, personalized attention and by tailoring her presentations to our event’s training goals. Participants loved the way she seamlessly weaved in specific acronyms and facts about OCPS into her sessions – they were excited that SHE knew about THEM and the challenges they face in their positions. Victoria’s insightful trainings will not only help our school district reach the next level – she will help us surpass it!!

Tom Taylor, Marketing Manager, Sun Microsystems

A tour de force! Thank you for putting together such a whirlwind performance. It was stunning to see you transform the messaging of your material into points that related so well with our technology- minded audience. Your seemingly effortless transformation based on Director's instructions is uncanny. I've been fortunate to see great plays with actors such as Yul Brynner, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Hal Holbrook, and others. You are in that list and your performance comes to mind more often because of the messages communicated. You are a GREAT communicator! Thank you for sharing your skills, talents, abilities, and spirit! Meeting you was a memorable experience.

Nancy Gunderson, Deputy Assistant Secretary, Dept of Health & Human Services

We asked Victoria to reinforce our convention theme of “Be Brilliant!” and in no uncertain terms Victoria was BRILLIANT! Her enthusiasm and charisma were captivating and engaging. Our attendees were motivated, entertained and trained. She spent the time to understand our needs and presented a dead-on presentation. Two thumbs up!

Roxanne McCreery, President, Association of Briefing Program Managers

The entire conference was all abuzz about Victoria! For two days, your wonderfully wise, funny, and moving speech came back to us again and again. When you asked us what we wanted to accomplish with our keynote, we said that we wanted the audience to be inspired and energized. You accomplished all of that in spades. It was the perfect start of a great two days... and during a challenging time, when a perfect start was just the thing we needed. Thank you for really working to understand the audience. My considerable experience is that absolutely nobody does it better.

Arlene H. Olkin, Ph.D., Director of Professional Development, Association of School Business Officials International

Victoria Labalme is a bundle of talent! Her energetic closing keynote sent our members off with a positive attitude and skills to thrive in the demanding environment of the school business office. She went to great lengths to speak their language, acronyms and all, and captured the specifics of their professional lives in a way that no other keynote speaker has. Victoria is a consummate artist who captivates an audience with stories, mime, dance and comedy, then ties everything together in a ribbon of practical wisdom. It is obvious that her message comes from her heart, which is what makes her presence so compelling.
