"It’s always a pleasure to work with Roger Haskett and the team at Engagement Unlimited. From the start of any project we work on, Roger takes the time to listen and understand my client’s organization, purpose, culture and event goals.
“He’s able to provide excellent ideas around engagement and delivery of key messaging during the design phase of the event. Recently Roger helped my team with a 3 day virtual event with 300 attendees. Like with in person conferences and events, his energy was contagious and he kept the conversations flowing from start to finish. Between sessions he injected fun with dance and stretch breaks to get attendees moving.
“I was skeptical in my belief about how much energy could be achieved in a virtual environment and I was blown away by the end result.
“The coaching and assistance he offered each presenter in those moments when he came into the virtual green room and helped us count them down to live alleviated anxiety and uncertainty. Presenters expressed how grateful they were for his ability to know when to offer a positive cue or jump in to assist with something.
“His ability to drive the Q&A portion following each presenter ensured the conversation never ended early, only on time each and every time.
“Having a professional speaker as an emcee ensured that he was able to weave the close of one day into the opening of another creating continuity and bringing so many meaningful and thought provoking conversations to the forefront.
“Roger was really the glue that held all the pieces of this virtual event together in a fun, meaningful and engaging way. He didn’t miss a beat."
