“I don't normally write speaker 'fan mail.' But the high quality of your presentation content -- combined with your platform skills -- made your presentation the high point of a very high quality conference. You were the best closing keynote we have ever had. People in the audience let us know in their feedback that you are exactly the kind of presenter they want to repeat. You offered high quality, up-to-date content and you presented it in an credible, engaging manner.”

“ Mike Losey served as Co-Chairman of the 2004 Linkage HR Leaders Summit and contributed significantly to the program's success. He was Master of Ceremonies, gave the opening Keynote presentation and as co-chairman of the program provided important support to the Linkage Program Director. Based on a significant body of research, his presentation on "Tomorrow's HR Management" was an excellent kickoff to the Summit and provided a broad perspective of major trends in human resources. The scope of his presentation was appropriate and very relevant to the diverse audience of senior-level strategic decision makers in attendance. We also appreciated how Mr. Losey was extremely flexible in designing his presentation to best fit the needs of the audience.”

— Rich Rosier
Vice President of Educational Programs, Linkage, Inc.


“It was a real pleasure to not only introduce Mike at our PIHRA Leadership Seminar as the Keynote speaker, but to listen to his presentation.

It was a pleasure and I look forward to hearing him on any subject again.
