Praise For Llewellyn King:
“He began his speech on Capitol Hill with the example of a car cup holder. From there, he moved on to a compelling discussion of technological innovation.
That was my first experience with a Llewellyn King speech. And I use the word experience because that is what it is.
That day on Capitol Hill, Mr. King gave an enthralling and motivating speech, leading everyone in his audience to respond in the only possible way: a standing ovation.
Afterwards people rushed to the lectern, asking Mr. King for a copy of his speech. To their utter amazement, he replied that he had spoken off the cuff for an hour. Now that is talent!
Whether the topic is business (especially energy), politics, world affairs, or motivation, Mr. King leaves his audiences wanting to hear from him again and again.
But one piece of advice: Tape his speech because you will want to share the experience with others.” –Sabrina Ousmaal, Director of Business Development, Access Intelligence, LLC, Rockville, MD
“As executive director of the American Council of Independent Laboratories, I engaged Llewellyn King to present the prestigious Hess Memorial Lecture on Ethics in Business, which had become the highlight of the ACIL annual meeting.
Mr. King gave an outstanding, lively presentation on a topic that resonated with all of the attendees, “When Good People Do Bad Things.” He drew on his substantial experience with executives from a myriad of companies, particularly focusing on his relationship—as a journalist and publisher of a group of award-winning newsletters, including his flagship Energy Daily—with Ken Lay of Enron.
The evaluation forms were off-the-charts, and most attendees cited Mr. King’s presentation as the one with the highest “take-away” value.” –Joan Walsh Cassedy, Executive Director, American Council of Independent Laboratories, Washington, DC
“I’ve heard Llewellyn King speak no less than 12 times, and have hired him at least six times. He is always entertaining. But most importantly, he is insightful and current. When he has spoken to us about energy, he has put the topic in the context of world politics, economics and the environment.
Mr. King’s presentations are fresh and tailored to the needs and interests of each particular audience. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever heard him repeat an anecdote.
Clement Atlee had it tough following Winston Churchill. So, too, do the poor souls who approach the podium as Mr. King is departing it. –Vaughn Gilbert, Manager, Advertising and Public Relations, Westinghouse Electric Company, Pittsburgh, PA
Llewellyn King’s appearance at my client event was a sensation. From his copious store of knowledge, personal experience and historical perspective, Mr. King explores connections among politics, media, energy, technology and foreign affairs, offering insights that leave his audience clamoring for more. With wit, verve and urbanity–coupled to his larger-than-life persona–he entertains, informs, motivates, and never fails to provoke thoughtful discussion. But be forewarned: If you engage Mr. King, your next speaker will find it a very hard act to follow.” –Thomas R. Oldt, Investment Adviser, Winter Haven, FL
“It is high time that I record our appreciation for the superb keynote address, which you gave at our ICCF-14 [14th International Conference on Condensed Matter Nuclear Science]. You got the conference off to a great start. People really enjoyed and benefited both from your presentation and from your response to questions. …
Thank you again for your gracious and expert assistance, especially on such short notice.” –David J. Nagle, General Chairman of ICCF-14, Washington, DC
“Mr. King was definitely a hit at our reception last fall. His speech was thoroughly enjoyed by all.” –Luann Smith, President, Statoil Marketing & Trading (US) Inc., Stamford, CT
“I wanted to catch up with you to say how much I enjoyed the time in Vegas, primarily because you were such a great moderator. I went to many other sessions; there was lots of good info by the panel, but they didn’t have a Mr. King. You were the difference maker!!!! One never appreciates the value of that role until you see a PRO in action versus a rookie.” –Bill Siderewicz, Pure Energy Resources, Burlington, MA
