Member National Speakers Association

Your keynote was not only very well received, but the favorite presentation at the Expo. You provided a genuine and extremely entertaining presentation, where you used humor to make excellent points. Often speaker's humor is separate from their message, but yours was right on the mark – your stories and examples were truly outstanding. I went from laughing out loud to listening intently to every word in order to not miss anything. You also involved the audience well throughout the presentation. I was especially impressed with your in-depth knowledge of performance issues in the workplace. Your cutting edge research and consulting examples provided the audience with a deep understanding of your message. I also loved your use of visuals – they were humorous, and they got the message to the audience. But most of all I was impressed with your genuineness. You made the audience feel like they knew you, which made them want to hear more and more from you. I would highly recommend you to any other organization that wants to unlock the secret of improving work performance.

Chief Strategist, High Performance Consulting
Former NMISPI (New Mexico International Society for
Performance Improvement) Chapter President

When I served as president of the board of the local International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI) chapter in New Mexico, my goal for our meetings was to provide value to our members. As a board we strove to engage entertaining, informative, and up-to-date speakers in the field of human performance technology (HPT). As such, we were always pleased to have Mark Salisbury speak at our meetings. Feedback from members was consistently positive after one of Mark's presentations, and learning more about our rapidly changing knowledge economy is of tremendous value to our audience. Mark shared several times over the years and because he tailors his message to audiences the focus is different each time. Meeting participants leave with new and fresh ideas that are applicable back on the job. Our chapter is made up of highly-educated training, development, and performance improvement professionals who appreciate practical information that they can immediately use, and that is what Mark offers. I am delighted to recommend him to any audience who seeks to not only understand the new "frontiers" of our knowledge economy, but also to prepare and plan for all the changes that the future will bring.

Mark Salisbury serves as a catalyst and visionary for knowledge sharing; bringing a wealth of expertise and invaluable resource to the learning and performance community.  It has been my pleasure to work with Mark a number of times; his material is leading edge, and HRD professionals are eager to learn how their current practices can be applied to the new learning economy. Mark genuinely engages his audience through personal stories threaded throughout his presentations that link back to key points of the learning experience.  Participants leave feeling confident in their task to create, preserve and apply knowledge within the new workplace setting.
