Thank you for facilitating this year’s diversity presentation. The RAs could not stop saying exciting and thought provoking things about the information you covered. The evaluation showed high marks - RAs scoring each question at a 4 or higher. The things they liked most about the presentation were: The L.U.C.A.S approach, learning the listening skills, the group activities and the style in which you deliver a presentation. They felt engaged and part of the process. I hope the high marks and comments provide you with some insight as to what the evaluations showed. Again, thanks and I’ll be sure to keep you in mind for future sessions.

We engaged Dr. Holmes in re-energizing our Corporate Diversity Council and developing a recruitment and retention strategy for our organization. The sessions he facilitated were informative, practical, and engaging. As a result of his assistance, our organization is on track with a diversity initiative that is integrated with our overall business objectives. I highly recommend Dr. Holmes to any organization that is beginning or re-focusing their diversity efforts.

Dr. Holmes, on behalf of the entire membership of the Michigan chapter of Meeting Professionals International, I want to thank you for speaking to our group today. Unconscious Bias needs to be more widely recognized and actively fought, not only in our industry, but in our own communities. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and giving us tools in the fight.

A very unique ability is to captivate an audience and make them process your spoken words long after you have left the room. This, I am sure, occurs on many occasions when Dr. Tyrone A. Holmes speaks. It certainly happened when he spoke at the Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development’s Samuel H. Johnson Luncheon. He understood our mission and delivered a powerful and memorable keynote address that provided our guests with the “professional opportunity of a lifetime”.
