"Harvey Deutschendorf gave a wonderful, heartwarming and emotive keynote presentation at the 10th Annual International Conference on Emotional Intelligence which was held virtually, for the first time in the United Kingdom.

Harvey engaged the audience from the word go and, everyone went away with a real sense of self-reflection, knowledge and understanding from another persons' perspective.  If you want someone who can reach a wide-ranging target audience, I have no hesitation in recommending Harvey for keynote presentations."

“Harvey Deutschendorf recently spoke to the Society of Emotional Intelligence in Jacksonville, Florida and shared with us why EI skills are now the most desired workplace skills moving forward as announced by the World Economic Council. His genuine delivery engaged the participants and enabled engagement honestly and comfortably for our members. Harvey’s personal accounts and stories allowed participants to access the concepts more easily. Mr. Deutschendorf was also kind enough to stay, speak to individuals and address their questions as well as sign his books for hours afterwards. We are a better chapter for his visit.”

~ Kelly A. Mannel, Chairwoman, Society of Emotional Intelligence, Florida
