Robert's unique ability to motivate not just one individual but a large group, corporation or convention is outstanding. I have known Robert since he was the President and CEO of ARC International. I heard him speak once at a conference with the Ambassador from Japan and he was not only informative but highly entertaining. If you need a boost in your personal, professional or corporate business life, Robert is your extraordinary leader.
John Denver, Singer, Songwriter, Activist | Windstar Foundation Board Retreat
“My seminar experience gave me a clearer sense of what my life is about, what is possible, what an incredible gift life is. Part of me always wanted to go one way while another part wanted another. After the seminar, I’ve been clear about my focus. It seems like everything in my life is working in alignment toward that focus. It’s very exciting and I’m very proud of the song I wrote to celebrate my experience – ‘The Gift You Are.’ Robert White has made a real difference in my life, and in the lives of thousands of people around the world. I am grateful and recommend his work without hesitation.”
James D. Prock, Senior Vice President | American Cancer Society Annual Executive Meeting
Thank you for speaking at our annual training for our directors for the Planned Giving Business Unit of the ACS. I heard many directors state the time with you was so meaningful to them and that they will go home ready to have their best year in production. You communicated with us in a very special way. The session you organized for us to share with each other what we recognize in each other that is positive was very meaningful. Thank you for taking the time to share with us.
William Burwell, EVP and General Manager | Silvertree Hotel and Resort Management Retreat
You did an outstanding job of connecting with our managers as someone who has “been there and done that.” They clearly received you as both an expert they could learn from and someone they could identify with as an operating executive. Your wit and wisdom plus the practical exercises you designed and led, left our team inspired and eager to use what they learned the very next day. It’s been a challenging time for the entire hospitality industry and I’m pleased to report that within that environment, our managers are performing better than ever.
