The appearance of L Vaughan Spencer was the highlight of the two days. The session was a totally different approach to our business mindset and the feedback we have received from everybody has been phenomenally positive. Your ability to keep the audience awake and entertained (notably after a gruelling previous day) was absolutely fantastic, and you managed to deliver the key business messages in a unique and memorable way.
Your performance as L Vaughan Spencer is not only hilarious, it's also far more inspirational than Tony Robbins, Tom Peters and Dale Carnegie combined. My team loved it, and said it did more to motivate them (not to mention entertain them) than anything else we served up as part of our "team-building" day.
THE HOSPITAL GROUP
L. Vaughan kept us giggling long beyond our hour in the presence of the great man and much of his unique wisdom has found its way into our group's own idiom. It was just the thing after a hard day - making us laugh at ourselves and uniting us as a group. Among your many gifts, we found the pinpoint accuracy of your observations arresting. It was so refreshing to be entertained by someone who knows the absurd world we inhabit. So thank you for doing for us what many rational and well-created process interventions just cannot do. We owe you.
