What People Are Saying
Curt, when you speak, people listen. Having attended many of your sessions I am always amazed at how everyone is 100% focused on your words. We will use you again and again.
Curt Skene is one of the more “out-of-the-box” thinkers I have come across in 25 years of business. He has a unique ability to zero in on what is REALLY relevant – not just parrot the business catchwords of the day. His analysis is always insightful – and a little bit unsettling.
Dean, George Brown College
One of the things I find most rare and valuable about Curt Skene is his ability to put unrelated opportunities or issues together and create completely new ways of looking at a situation. Seeing Curt create innovative opportunities while still staying in touch with the needs of the people who have to deliver, is inspirational and a really positive energy source.
Program Manager, Director
Curt has the unique ability to convey concepts, ideas, and issues in an engaging manner. His passionate and informational style of speaking motivates his audience to take ownership of any challenges or opportunities he presents -a real talent to create positive behavioral change.

You are an extremely engaging and entertaining speaker (and I’m a tough sell, jaded as I am!) – I really enjoyed the presentation and the time flew (which is always the sign of a great presentation!)
Conference Chair, Municipal Waste Conference
You were a hit… Everyone thought you were absolutely wonderful and people are actually going to incorporate your outlook on life, not only just in their own life, but into many of the things that they do as professionals!
VP, Roche Canada
Curt was entertaining and reminded a room of left-brain thinkers that they should not ignore the power of their right brain, and to remember the right brain of the people they interact within the conduct of their technical work. It was a great way to open our meeting!
Conference Chair, Toronto Talks
As you well know, the Toronto Talks audience loved you and your presentation! Their mark for you was 99%… the highest we’ve seen to-date. With over 150 people in attendance you also helped us attract one of the largest audiences we have had. Your work has an undeniably positive impact on those you touch.
National Manager, CACEE
Curt WOW’d me in a way that very few other speakers have! His experience gave him instant credibility with the audience–he addressed what I feel are some of the key career development issues facing University and College students today.
Executive Director, Scarborough Chamber of Commerce
Curt, you could have heard a pin drop when you spoke. What talent you have to capture the audience’s attention like that. Motivational, inspirational, empowering, and thought-provoking are just a few words to best describe you. Excellent presentation Curt!
VP, Medical and Regulatory Affairs, Roche
Curt was very engaging and reminded a room of left-brain thinkers that they could not ignore the power of their right brain, and to always remember the right brain of the people they interact within the conduct of their technical work. It was a great way to open our meeting!

Curt, attendee feedback was terrific! Your program was fun and lighthearted yet you included lots of tools and tips for attracting profitable business. Your dynamic program definitely helped us achieve our goal of delivering a high caliber program!
Sales Manager, Inuit Canada
We recently had Curt speak to all of our sales team. Curt is professional yet lighthearted and his keynote had a positive impact on our team. I would recommend having Curt come in and speak as his keynote is candid, engaging, and extremely motivational.
VP, Operations, Caressant Care
When two of our managers saw you speak they knew you would be a great fit for our Senior Managers Conference. They were right! Your presentation was among the best we have ever had. Your Master the Marketplace message was very relevant, timely and though provoking. Your use of humour kept everyone attentive and engaged.
