Produce positive change within your organization

Sharing stories drawn from years of leadership and workplace engagement, our keynotes produce positive change. Our team of speakers deliver timely messages filled with applicable, and often humorous, stories that connect with our audiences. Our aim is to engage, entertain, and challenge the participants. We create opportunities for the audience to leave with clear takeaways they can apply to everyday life.


Capturing crowds all over the world

We’ve connected with many groups throughout the world with audiences of all ages, backgrounds, and interests. We motivate people to take action with inspiring stories, audience participation, and solid material.

We invited Core Insights to speak at our annual sales awards ceremony this year. We don’t usually hire outside organizations to speak at our functions due to the uniqueness of our business model, but we are so glad we did! They took the time to research our industry, asked critical questions to identify how they could help, and presented a program with an accountability piece— which was the best part. It gave the leadership something to follow back around with the sales reps. Now our team has a strategy in place to service our clients and thrive in this “new normal.” Whether your sales team is surpassing goals, on pace, or in a rut, Core Insights can help.

Kevin Green
Senior Sales Manager, Northeast Texas, Humana

As an organization that arranges a large number of conferences and other education events, we're immediately able to recognize true talent when it comes our way. We will definitely be looking for additional opportunities to share Core Insights’ skills with our members. I would highly recommend Core Insights to your organization and can ensure that you will find no better value for your training dollars.

Dave Pearson
CEO, Texas Organization of Rural and Community and Hospitals

Core Insights presented a session on “Improving Organizational Communication” to a large group of our HR leaders from across the country and did an excellent job. The session was interesting and engaging and the information was very relevant and applicable to all who attended. I would definitely recommend Core Insights to any organization.

Phil Lund
Vice President of Human Resources, Feeding America

The Core Insights team has spoken for us at numerous events - staff team building and continuing education, leadership conferences, business workshops - with various audience sizes. Each dynamic speaker was incredibly knowledgeable on each topic, and all were very easy to work with. You won’t be disappointed when hiring Core Insights for your next event.
