You went above and beyond what is expected and I do appreciate the personal time you sacrificed. It's a true measure of class and something that didn't go unnoticed.

Ron MacLean was a success at our conference. There was not one negative word about his performance. Everyone was quite pleased and entertained. He is kind, polite, witty and funny. After his performance, he stayed to sign autographs and chat with whoever wanted to talk to him. That was quite surprising and delightful. Thank-you Ron MacLean.

–Heavy Duty Distributor Council

His presentation was relaxed, humorous and real – I stood at the back of the banquet hall and watched as 400-plus people remained silent, listening intently to be sure they did not miss a word.

–Auto Sense

You were sensational! You had your audience totally enthralled with your presentation. This is the first time where everyone stayed to hear the guest speaker. Thank you for taking the time to talk with the delegates, sign autographs and pose for pictures. Ron, you certainly have an uncanny ability to make people feel like they've just gained a new friend.
