“Gary presented a keynote at our 2014 Americas Congress in Miami, our US flagship event that gathered top-level executives in supply chain management and procurement from Fortune 1000 companies. I heard my share of inspirational speakers and I’m always skeptical, even a little scared, when booking them – they can go either way. However, Gary nailed it. He brought our audience to life with his humor and electrified them with his truly fascinating stories. Gary added tremendous value to the overall experience of our guests and I highly recommend him.”

“It was a pleasure having Gary speak at our Art of Negotiation event! He is an unbelievably exciting storyteller, who kept the audience riveted throughout his entire presentation. The lessons that he reveals through his experiences will translate well into any field of work. I hope the opportunity arises to call him for round 2!” (June 27th, 2013)

Thanks so much Gary!!

“I happened to hear the NPR interview of Gary Noesner shortly before I had a speaker cancel for our annual conference, ADVANCES IN THE MANAGEMENT OF EPILEPSY, for doctors and nurses across the country. I was so impressed with the interview that I called him up and asked if he would speak at our conference. He graciously agreed. What Gary has to teach we all need to hear. Medical personnel, (and everyone else) are always dealing with confrontation and crises and who better to address this than the lead person in charge of hostage negotiations for the past 30 years or so. His presentation was everything I thought it would be. He is an excellent presenter and immediately captured the audience’s attention. He was funny, thought provoking and top rated by the audience. It was a pleasure having him with us. He has my highest recommendations for any audience.”

“The Peninsula Conflict Resolution Center engaged Gary Noesner to be the keynote speaker at its annual fundraiser breakfast in April 2011. Gary was a pleasure to work with in the planning phase, flexible in making arrangements, responsive and reliable.
In his speech he relayed a variety of stories from his years as an FBI hostage negotiator sharing his experiences and insights. He was an engaging, entertaining and interesting speaker. Our audience was captivated both by the details of the stories, which were riveting, and by Gary’s overall message about the important skills of negotiation. He did an excellent job of tailoring his remarks to the interests of the audience.
In addition to his keynote address, Gary also joined our group for two more intimate discussions. Again, he was gracious, generous with his time, and very engaging.
Gary is skilled at story-telling and connecting with a group, and he is an expert in his subject. It was a great pleasure and honor to have Gary as a speaker. I highly recommend him.”

“Gary Noesner spoke at the Entrepreneur’s Organization in Raleigh Durham in April 2016 and offered our Chapter a change from the usual learning event. Gary’s fascinating career in the FBI provided unique negotiation experience which he told through engaging and funny stories. He’s relatable and down to earth and his presentation offered new ways to think about negotiations in business and as a leader.”
