Client Comments about Education Speaker
Harry K. Jones
Kathleen Welsh Beveridge, Director of Development and Alumni Affairs
of Temple University Ambler, said:
"By choosing Harry K. Jones to present two of our six educational
sessions, I learned the value of bringing in a true professional speaker.
Harry arrived early and was well prepared, making multiple references
that personalized his topics to our profession and our university.
He also used numerous props to draw in his audience and humorous references
to current events that kept our participants laughing throughout.
Harry was a brilliant teacher and entertainer.
"Harry's sessions attracted more than 50 percent of the participants,
even though they had two other sessions to choose from in each time
slot. His sessions also received the highest evaluations of the
day, averaging 4.85 on a scale of one to five. Perhaps most importantly,
these presentations provided tools and strategies for improving professional
performance, which Harry reinforced for maximum take-away value."
Kathleen Rockers, President of the Ottawa University Leadership Council,
"Harry's personality definitely is an asset in any situation
and his energy resounds in his presentation. The best compliment
I received was from our advisor who said we had found a 'wonderful speaker'
and 'We need him for OUR faculty and staff conference.'"
Sharri Margraves, Manager at Michigan State University, said:
"AchieveMax® helped turn our
organization around by focusing on our specific problems. The transformation
was nothing short of phenomenal. As the first woman manager working
with three different unions, my groups and I were able to work through
issues like empowerment and change by solving problems with goal setting.
AchieveMax® has the expert knowledge
and wide range of experience that make the difference for my organization."
David D. Allen, Associate Dean for Curricular Affairs and Associate
Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences of Texas Tech University Health Sciences
at Amarillo, said:
"Harry did a great job and the feedback I've received thus far
has been very positive ... Harry's program was very well organized and
really hit the mark ... He was entertaining, appropriately humorous,
and did a good job of demonstrating many techniques that faculty members
can utilize to make them more productive while emphasizing and maintaining
balance between work and life outside our jobs.
Roy Sovis, Coordinator, Close Up, and Coordinator for Instruction, Social
Studies of Genesee Intermediate School District, said:
"We were interested in a motivational speaker who could use relevant,
real world examples to help motivate and convince the students their
diligent involvement in whatever they do in life, especially their role
as a responsible citizen, can make a positive difference in the lives
of others as well as their own lives. One of the selling points was
their desire to custom design the presentation to meet their client's
goals and objectives. This value-added service became a reality when
both the owner and president Dr. Jeff Drake and Harry spent almost two
hours with us talking about what it was we wanted to accomplish. During
this conversation Harry inquired about the civic-oriented concepts we
would be studying during the local program that were manifested in what
became a custom-designed presentation that bridged the world of work
with what it meant to be a responsible citizen.
"If you are looking to take the teachers and students you lead
to the next level of being an effective individual and want to avoid
a canned program, we highly recommend you work with Harry K. Jones at
AchieveMax®, Inc. who will offer a
variety of powerful tools in a humorous, custom-designed, interactive
Chelle Adams, Manager of Training & Development at West Virginia
"Harry has the ability to capture the audience's attention with
his entertaining comments and sidebars while sharing his professional
expertise. Harry's advanced preparation demonstrates his ability
to evaluate the needs and expectations of each group and apply the appropriate
and relevant information to his seminars. Harry's knowledge of customer
service and his ability to positively interact with his audience makes
him a valuable and professional asset for any seminar."
Savannah Craddock of the American Quarter Horse Youth Association said:
"The information Harry K. Jones provided us at the conference
was priceless and very appreciated. Harry would be a wonderful
speaker for any occasion because he is able to reach every age group
and interest group. Everyone at the 'boot camp'loved his energetic,
technical, and very informational approach to leadership."
Ann Marie Krejcarek, Associate Headmaster for Academics of Saint Andrew's
"Harry delivered an excellent presentation at Saint Andrew's
School on 'I Hate Time Management.' The audience appreciated his
humor and props. Harry demonstrated effectiveness as a professional
speaker. I would recommend Harry K. Jones to other schools and
businesses for professional development programs."
Michael Thomas, Deputy Superintendent for Operation of Jackson Public
School District, said:
"This year in late October and early November, we held our Second
Annual Operations Leadership Advance conducted by AchieveMax®,
Inc. The presenters were Harry K. Jones and Dr. Jeffrey W. Drake.
The training focused on leadership, project management, and project
"I don't think I'm overstating it to say the training was a great
success. The supervisors were very pleased with the presentations,
the material and the group work sessions. I highly recommend the
services of AchieveMax®, Inc."
Darlene Moppert, Program Manager of Nutrition Education and Training
Food and Nutrition Services of Broward County Schools, said:
"Harry added value beyond expectation to the program he delivered.
As part of his preprogram preparation, he interviewed me to discuss
the nuances of our customer base and product line, and then tailored
his message to our audience. He confronted issues that we deal
with in our organization by using numerous examples to bridge the technical
content of his presentation to the world of school business service."
Rebecca Chase, Coordinator of Oakland County School Business Officials,
"Mr. Jones customized his presentation to fit the time allotted
in our agenda. He effectively delivered a powerful presentation
that reached all members of the audience and really seemed to provoke
some self-evaluation. The messages he conveyed were clear, concise,
and had an impact no matter what the positions the individuals held
in the districts.
"Overall, the group found the presentation and what Mr. Jones
had to say to be highly enlightening. Mr. Jones took the initiative
to plan accordingly and was extremely courteous and professional to
everyone that interacted with him. It is with my pleasure that
I recommend AchieveMax® and Harry Jones
for any future conferences that require a corporate humorist or a corporate
Angela J. Wilcox, Accounting and Business Club President of Manchester
"Harry was the keynote speaker at the Manchester College Accounting
and Business Club Annual Spring Banquet. The club received positive
comments from the attendees concerning the presentation. I highly
