Rangers lead the Way!
AMAZING! That’s the word that come to mind when I think of my executive coaching experience from Mel Parker.
Mel has an energy that is contagious and he kept the audience 100% engaged. Mel's story is inspiring and his leadership principles are simple and elegant ...
My work with [Mel] over the past eight months has been transformational. I have a clearer vision of myself and my potential contribution to my team and the organization.
At the end of the 6 months, he was more than a mentor and a coach, he became a friend. His energy level, positive mindset, and grounded beliefs/values were inspirational.
When Mel took the stage at Intel, as our keynote speaker, he told us, “I’m going to wow you and change your life.” And no surprise, he delivered!
[Mel's] direct and engaging storytelling style captivated our audience, and his content was relevant and empowering.
Being coached by Mel was a life-changing event for me. He helped me push past obstacles and find my personal power, so that I could live my life confidently and with integrity
As an opening conference keynote speaker there comes a lot of pressure to energize, excite and empower, and Mel delivered above and beyond.
Mel Parker is one of the most well-rounded keynote speakers that I have ever had the privilege of working with
Mel, I now understand what it means when you say “I am your mission”. You have the unique ability to make me feel that I was not only your most important coaching client in the whole world, but also the only coaching client you have in the world.
You are his Mission! I am beyond thrilled with the results that Mel has helped me to achieve in both my professional career and my personal life.
I was thrilled to see the level of attention and engagement during your session and the energy it created with the group was palpable.
His approach was always highly empathetic, personal, and collaborative, often asking me to reflect on my choices and consider alternative routes. I would readily recommend and seek out Mel for future coaching opportunities.
It was OUR pleasure to have you! Without a doubt, you delivered one of the BEST keynotes I have heard!
Mel has an inspiring story and a passion for developing leaders, which has made him an terrific partner for the Executive Leadership Program at Dell
We were fortunate to have Mel as the keynote presenter at the open plenary. He certainly set the bar for the remainder of the week
[Mel] helped me to analyze what I really wanted for a career path and gave me the right amount of inspiration mixed with some tough love to help me get where I needed to be. I am so very glad that I chose him out of all the options available!
I found Mel to be keenly interested and aware of my concerns about performance and career.
I think what has struck me the most is that the audience was so enthralled with the power of your story
Mel, your session was absolutely amazing.
Everyone, including myself, was on the edge of our seats as we listened to Mel’s story of inspiration, perseverance, and his drive for finding his purpose.
You are such a dynamic speaker! Your experience and insights are truly remarkable!
