I am writing to provide a professional reference for Greg Wood . In my experience as the President of MICLE and Executive pastor of Igreja Congregacional Pentecostal In Brazil, Greg wood ranks among the very best speakers I’ve ever encountered. His speeches on the topics of leadership and success in leadership have influenced many leaders in many parts of the world. Mr Wood is an electrifying public speaker. His passion for the subject matter is infectious. In just one hour, attendees gain a fresh perspective on the major trends that are transforming leadership across the globe. More attendees have requested printed text from Mr Wood’s keynote speeches than any other speaker. Greg has deep professional expertise, and it shows.. His experience working with leaders in Asia, Africa and Europe provides a highly relevant perspective to audiences facing questions of global leadership. His presentations are packed with illuminating anecdotes, telling statistics, surprising paradoxes and a refreshing dose of good humor. At my request Mr Wood crafted a special talk presentation for 350 leaders from different mainline denominations in the city of Fortaleza . This plenary speech was superb. It set the pace for lively discussion among the attendees, and it provided valuable insight into the global Leadership scenario. He used humor and bold statements backed up with solid data to stir the audience. Several times his comments were punctuated by spontaneous applause from the floor. In sum, it is my pleasure to give Greg Wood my highest recommendation as a keynote speaker. He will deliver valuable information and analysis in an inspiring and entertaining manner.

Greg developed the needed presentation and was a key presenter of the material. He led many such strategy sessions and effectively shared the vision. I heard many positive reports on his ability to effectively communicate the material. Without exception, people commented on the high level of professional competence.

Greg was very entertaining, funny and kept the audience on the edge of their seats wondering what he was going to do next. It was great to hear the auditorium filled with laughter and to see the looks of amazement on the faces of everyone. I found Greg and his wife were excellent at communicating their needs ahead of the event. They were very flexible and willing to adjust their presentation to suit the audience and the facility. I would highly recommend them. We will be considering bringing them back for an encore performance as well as taking advantage of some of the many other teaching presentations they have to offer.

Greg is amazing. He is able to relate to the wide range of ages present in a manner that is able to draw everyone together for an unforgettable experience. And Greg is just plain fun. He exudes enthusiasm and a joy at being able to do what he does.
Greg is a dynamic speaker and presenter and the students loved him. He certainly caught the students’ attention and kept them attending through his entire presentation.

Greg’s magic and comedy works seamlessly with his motivational message. The kids certainly left the presentation thinking about how we need to treat others. I would highly recommend getting Greg in to your school.

Your positive spin on how to deal with relationships I believe is a presentation that everyone at all ages would benefit from experiencing.

Greg Wood’s presentation proved to be both educational and entertaining for our students. All of our students, regardless of age, were impressed with his magic, and the message that he delivered was both timely and relevant. Many of the things he discussed served as a strong reinforcement of the ideals we are attempting to instill in our students on a daily basis.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Greg for his warmth, humour and most of all the important message that he shared with us.
Yvonne Knight – Principal – Rossburn School
The show was entertaining and it delivered a very powerful message to our students. Greg held all of the students’ attention which can be challenging at times. The teachers also felt that this was an amazing presentation and that Churchill High School was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to see Greg’s show.
Susan Chodirker – Churchill High School
Your approach to helping students recognize the impact of their choices in life was very powerful and will hopefully stay with many for years to come.
I was looking for two things: an entertaining and professional presentation, and a message that built self esteem in our students. I have seen many such presentations and I must say I was very impressed with what I saw. Kids were involved, kids laughed: all done with a care for young people, and with integrity. As well, his talk, which showed a genuine concern, empowered the audience and gave them things to think about.
