“Isaiah delivered an excellent talk at the Science of Winning event in Toronto hosted by the Entrepreneur’s Organization. A room full of exceptionally successful entrepreneurs and business professionals were very engaged with both his content and his speaking style. Isaiah had the room laughing, leaning forward in rapt attention, and asking questions until we had to pull him off stage. I've know Isaiah and have been a fan of his work for years and highly recommend booking him for your next event. He will drive home your event's key themes and over deliver just like he always does.”

We booked Isaiah to speak at the launch of Fourfront NextGen, our young professionals network, after having seen a clip of him speaking on Youtube. We had flicked through a huge number of different speakers, watching no more than two minutes at a time before losing interest. However, we were hooked immediately on Isaiah’s videos and ended up watching a full twenty minute clip.
When Isaiah arrived at the venue, he was friendly, helpful and easy to talk to. We had around forty-five minutes before the event began, which we spent chatting. It quickly became clear that everyone could relate to him; from the youngest members in the NextGen committee to our CEO.
Isaiah’s talk lasted approximately forty minutes and he didn’t once lose the attention of every single person in the room. We had asked him to cover a variety of topics we felt were most relevant such as his “Start with the End in Mind” concept, amongst others.
We had a myriad of different employees at the event: warehouse staff, site managers, designer, sales people and administration staff. We wanted to engage everyone, which we were aware was challenge due to the different nature of everyone’s job roles but Isaiah rose to that challenge brilliantly. His talk was engaging, humorous, thought provoking and informative. One attendee said “He was so good, I went home and watched him again on YouTube then sent the link to all my friends”.
After the launch, we held a networking event and asked him to join us. He was a lot of fun and a good laugh, chatting to everyone. I couldn’t recommend Isaiah highly enough, everyone thoroughly enjoyed his talk and came away buoyed, motivated and committed to taking control of their futures; exactly as we had hoped.

"Isaiah was a guest speaker at our annual conference 'The Gathering', the conference focused on change and the future challenges. Isaiah gave some great external insight for us, talking about our purpose which fitted really well with the theme. He was a charismatic speaker with a really interesting background; this linked well to the global audience in attendance. He also stayed afterwards to talk individually to our employees which was a really nice way to end the 1st day of the conference!"

"I attended a talk given by Isaiah at the Royal Institute in London. The profound impact his talk had on me and many others was a surprise. He is a gifted orator and a man whose occasionally sideways look is surprising and insightful. His motivations to have people succeed are both genuine and powerfully practical. Rarely have I seen such a method that is designed from the outset to make a difference. He gets your mind hooked right from the start. See him as a matter of priority!"

"Dr. Isaiah Hankel is a wonderful speaker. A room full of people were engaged and inspired during his recent talk at MIT. He has an original, energetic, and authentic way of combining personal examples, anecdotes, humor, and principles to connect to his audience. This style allowed the audience to see things through a new lens while also allowing them to relate in a very concrete and practical way. Isaiah's own scientific and academic background served as a framework that helped people envision many different possibilities for themselves. Isaiah established an excellent rapport with the audience and was very responsive to their questions, and many stayed after his talk to speak with him."
