His pilot teaching was so successful that I have invited Keith back annually ever since for periods of 2-3 weeks modular teaching on i) the nature of leadership in a globalizing world, ii) learning how to learn leadership, and iii) learning to lead diversity.  We have now worked together for the past nine years.  His evaluations have consistently been the best in the program and he remains one of the most insightful people I know in the world on leadership.” -Nicholas H.

“Keith was one of the presenters at the 2007, 2008 and 2010 Global Leadership Conferences in Shanghai  / Beijing and I and my business graduate students accompanied me to these Conferences were of the unanimous opinion that Keith was the top presenter at the conferences.   His presentations were clear, provocative, and very engaging and very relevant to the conference topic of Global Business Leadership in the twenty-first century.  Keith has a gift for distilling complex ideas down into their very comprehensible components, and for making these ideas not only understandable, but also inspiring and exciting.   After his presentations, I asked him to join me and my students for follow on discussions, which led to the invitations to speak to us at the University of San Diego in San Diego.” Bob Schoultz, Director Master of Science in Global Leadership, University of San Diego, 5998 Alcala Park, San Diego, California, 92110 USA

Hi Keith, thank you very much for your participation at the recent GLC 7 Conference. Again, your individual session was rated one of the best. The Saturday morning panel too was a big hit at the conference. I believe that it was in big part due to your suggestion of changing and designing the format of the Q.&A. session.  Several participants have told me that it should have been a 3-hour session. I hope that we will have chance to work together again in the future.
Again, thank you very much.
