It is a great pleasure to recommend Dr. Lowery to provide education and training to a business organization. His ability to engage the audience and provide the expected message that a corporation is requesting has always exceeded our expectations. We have asked Dr Lowery to present at Select Medical Rehabilitation Service’s Annual Meetings on 2 different occasions. His message had a great impact on our patient care operators each time.

Thank you once again for being a part of FAIA’s 106th Anniversary Convention & Education Symposium. You opened Friday’s General Session with just the right amount of humor and substance. Your presentation was informative and enlightening, and we all left the meeting that morning with a much better attitude about life! I received so many great comments throughout the rest of the convention. Our members noted your solid, down-to-earth content, as well as your excellent presentation skills. Personally, once again you were a pleasure to work with. I appreciated your flexibility and willingness to work with us on the details of your presentation. I hope you enjoyed your time with us. Our sincere thanks for a job well done!

The feedback surveys from conference participants revealed that Dr. Lowery was very well received and appreciated, so much so that we invited him back as the Key Note speaker for the follow up conference in 2009. His presentation led me to ask him to lead a program for our law firm at a retreat we scheduled for all of our attorneys and paralegals, and again his message, delivery and helpfulness were solidly received and enjoyed by our staff. We plan to have him back again for other presentations as opportunities are presented.

Realizing that Dr. Lowery must speak to dozens of different groups each year, I was overwhelmed by his ability to connect and identify with our teachers. He meshed and had excellent balance between humor and content and had the complete attention and focus of over 2,000 participants. If you are looking for a speaker to contribute to a successful meeting, I would highly recommend that you contact Dr. Charles Lowery.
