“I recently had the opportunity to watch Darrin do a virtual talk with the Business Clubs of America here in Phoenix and was moved by his story.  Darrin shared some personal experiences about his life, a potentially deadly car crash, and how this incident changed his perspective on life.  He took us on a roller coaster ride of emotions at times and left us with some solid and actionable takeaways that it seems the group as a whole really benefitted from.   I really appreciated the experiences and wisdom he shared with our group, in talking to the other members they felt the same way, the talk was empowering and I recommend him as a guest speaker or consultant to other companies as well.”

“We had Darrin come to our Emerging Leaders meeting to discuss what it means to be a good leader. The content he presented, both researched and personal experience, was very well thought out and presented in an energetic way that kept everyone engaged and interested.

I would absolutely recommend Darrin for any speaking engagement and will reach out to him again for future presentations.”

“I have taught nearly 70,000 undergraduates during my career. During this time, I have had a number of guest speakers. Darrin Schenck is one of the best guest speakers of them all. He knows how to engage students in classes from small to large. He connects with students in a manner that engages them and makes them want to learn. Darrin prepares in advance to know his audience and his preparation clearly shows during his guest presentations.

In short, Darrin had made my classes better with his presence.

Ensuring that our students have the best education possible and to properly prepare them for their future careers requires that we here at W.P. Carey School of Business introduce them to real-world topics in real time. One way that we do so at the business school is by inviting knowledgeable guest speakers into our classes that can add to the educational experience and further help students prepare for the challenges of finding a job and creating a good career for themselves. Mr. Darrin Schenck is game changer in that respect and I would like to thank him for taking the time to meet with my undergraduate students and share his knowledge about job exploration and interviewing in a very timely, relevant, and direct way that will absolutely prove useful in their future careers.

Please know that meeting with our students here at the W. P. Carey School really makes a difference, it makes business personal by building ties and reinforcing relationships with the business community that are so vital to the success of our school and students. Thank you again for getting involved and I look forward to continuing collaborating with you in the future.

“Darrin Schenck has presented on several topics for our Emerging Leaders group.  His expertise in a variety of fields provide not only for a concise and informative program, but his communication style is highly entertaining as well.”

“I hired Darrin to be a speaker for the Business Clubs of America (BCA)  Group for a recent virtual meeting and was beyond impressed.  Despite the format, he was able to capture the attention of the organization’s attending executive members and he effectively conveyed the heartfelt emotions of his talk. His sharing a life-changing experience and his takeaway messages seamlessly were woven by thought provoking images of life and what really matters. He left us stimulated and with that, evoked a considerable amount of audience interaction evidenced by individuals coming forward by adding their own emotions and thoughts for the group. All of this connection between Darrin and the audience has raised the bar of speaker-audience engagement.

Having organized and facilitated 14 years of keynote addresses, I know the good, the not so good and the great. The great are able to emotionally connect with the audience and adapt and deliver a keynote specifically aligned with the core values of the host sponsor and incorporate those values in the address. Darrin’s ability to deliver on these key all elements of a successful keynote ranks him in the top tier.

I wholeheartedly endorse and admire his ability and would not hesitate to bring him back!

Darrin was a welcome and refreshing addition to our event.  His unique experiences and perspective provided several ‘aha’ moments for our guests, and left a valuable impression.  Several of his concepts and stories are already making their way into our process.
