Neil McCoy-Ward MD Forward Thinking Group“I’ve heard the best keynote speakers in the world and Lorne’s presentation was World-Class! A masterclass in professional speaking!” – Neil McCoy-Ward, Managing Director, Forward Thinking Group, UK

"I was blown away ... Lorne is unique and I really feel he would please any audience. His was and still is one of the most talked about presentations we've seen."






"Your presentation was brilliant, Lorne. In my job, I hear a lot from motivational speakers and much of it is a rehash of other presentations or literature. This was different…… Pure, base animal behaviours ... expertly translated into the world of human beings ... An intellectual triumph."




"…I was struck by your powerful message that can benefit all of us in today's world of chaos and change. Goose-bumps stuff! We immediately implemented your lessons around teamwork and leadership and are already noticing a huge difference. ..."




"The standing ovation said it all. You have something rich and powerful ... which you expertly fit right in line with our conference... a provocative and exciting approach… absolutely unique and fascinating."




"Lorne, I want to personally thank you. You made each session so relevant to our world. Your delivery is professional, entertaining and inspiring - every time... absolutely outstanding ... the ‘lessons that Big Cat guy spoke on’ is one thing they all really remember and still refer to."
