Riaz reminds us all that empathy is a core business skill and that every conversation we have with peers, team members and customers can change outcomes and positively impact our relationships and business. Not only did Riaz inspire our participants with ideas, he empowered them to change their approach to interactions with others. He is easy to work with, well-prepared and customized his content to meet the challenges of our unique participants and their challenges in the current marketplace.
Riaz was a superb choice as keynote speaker for our hotel leadership conference! His message about authentic connection was timely and meaningful, and our attendees raved about his session. The hospitality business, and really every business, is about people! Riaz's tips for transcending small talk to get to extraordinary relationships were inspiring and practical for our attendees, both at work and in their personal lives
Having heard Riaz speak twice now, I took many insights away to apply to both my professional and personal lives. If you have not had the honour of hearing Riaz speak or read his book, please do it. The topic of connecting with impact and purpose and the power of reflecting on your most important conversation you have ever had, as well as the ones you have not yet had is life changing.
Many of us are still on a high - your presentation was truly refreshing, inspiring, and motivating! It was above and beyond what we had hoped for. Thank you for being such an authentic and engaging speaker and storyteller, and providing important guidance on human connection that we, as an organization, can all reflect on. You have helped set a positive and hopeful tone as we say goodbye to a difficult but successful two years and welcome the first year of our new, four-year strategic plan.
Riaz kicked off 3 days of keynote speakers in the most perfect way. From his presentation to his continuous engagement with our Brooks Team, Riaz is a force for positivity in this world, and there is no doubt in my mind that he has made a lasting impact on all of us that got the opportunity to hear him speak.
Riaz provided dedicated and customized coaching to our hosts from beginning right through to the very end. He played to each of their strengths and provided these leaders with a simple framework to be able to fulfill their role of hosts in a way that was authentic to them. The result was tremendous. All our hosts were able to effectively tell their stories and connect to the audience in a way that was impactful
If I had to describe his session it would be GAME-CHANGING. It struck a chord not just with me but with the entire audience, inspiring us to pause and think about how we can elevate our human connections as leaders and also as individuals and then translate that into business impact. I absolutely recommend this keynote as it has application for all industries and all departments
Practical. Meaningful. Moving. Riaz's thought-provoking keynote at our Power of Connection conference was one of our highest rated sessions. He brought to life the realities of loneliness and the power we each have to create authentic human connection, especially in the exhausting and distracted world we live in. His vulnerability motivated our leaders to explore how we can cultivate collaborative relationships and build a more connected culture
Riaz Meghji’s talk, Every Conversation Counts, was perhaps the most inspiring and impactful session at our recent virtual leadership conference — practical, meaningful, and motivating. Riaz has packaged a powerful message for leaders to put to work in everyday conversations. Thank you Riaz!
