"Talk about ENGAGEMENT! Most of us have attended sessions aimed at motivating individuals and in building a lasting impression, only to be disappointed in the message coming across. However, the depth of your material, your integrity, your open enthusiasm, your humor and your ability to connect on every level made it worthwhile for everyone!"

"Bryan is a gifted speaker that I would recommend for any training session in the hospitality industry. With his many years of experience in the hospitality business, he knows a variety of creative teaching methods to ensure you learn what you need to. His real world examples of both terrific and horrific hospitality experiences were not only hilarious but drove home the point of how easy world-class hospitality can be. His welcoming personality makes you feel completely comfortable with the subject matter and tasks at hand. If you want to turn your business into a world-class leader, hire Bryan."

"I have sat through many speakers in my career, but I must say, you brought such great material that is very relevant to business (personal too) and conveyed it with enthusiasm and examples. I appreciate the fact that I could come back to my office an immediate implement things right away."
Marriott ExecuStay - Atlanta
"Bryan Williams presented at our 10th Annual I.R.R.R.M. Conferences. He engaged the delegates, who represented multiple nationalities, with concepts and simple steps for success in a challenging economy. It all evolved around superb Customer Service, and is easy to introduce or reinforce in your day to day business. Everyone should certainly have departed the Conference with a few ideas to make their hotels perform at a higher level. Well done Bryan."
Senior Vice President, Membership Services
The Leading Hotels of the World, Ltd.
"I always enjoy attending Bryan’s webinars and reading his articles! I find them stimulating, inspiring, to the point and very relevant to my industry and to the strategies we are working on implementing. I’m always left full of motivation to share what I just heard or read and the powerful, yet simple nature of his messages makes it easier to cascade them to all team members at all levels in the organization. It is even more encouraging as the points shared with us are not only “nice words and theory” and they can all translate into simple, actions and invite people to act. It should come as no surprise that each month we use one of these messages in our newsletter to our associates to raise awareness, strive for excellence and encourage all to follow! Thank you Bryan!"

"I do feel very grateful for your existence in my daily professional life as my role serving Hilton Bandung. It was started by an email forwarded by Mr Peer Norsell, my General Manager, to all Heads of Departments. And that's the beginning of how you became familiar among my concierge team currently. I visited your company’s website. And nowadays I have an additional session in our daily concierge briefing called ' My new mate -Mr B William-'s daily message'. I read your articles on each briefing. Not to forget to close each of it with reading your 'Engage Me..the voice of your customers' poem."
"I was one of the attendants to the 5-star Leadership in Milan at the Grand Hotel et de Milan and I'd like to thank you very much for your wonderful job regarding he interesting classes you gave us. They are and will be certainly so helpful in better leading a successful team and I'll apply many of the points discussed at our hotel."

"Motivating. Inspiring. Entertaining. Bryan's EngageMe presentation cast new light upon the complex hotel/guest relationship. It gave participating hoteliers a different perspective (the guest's) and a few precious tips on how to enhance our service skills. These service skills will help us make each of our guests feel special any time they choose to stay at our properties."

"I had the pleasure of hearing Bryan speak at the 2009 Leading Hotels of the World conference.

Rooms Division Manager
Nairobi Serena Hotel (Nairobi, Kenya)
"Hello, Dr. Williams. Just wanted to follow up with you about you teaching sessions. It really impacted my professional life and I believe will impact my team. I have already purchased you book and video for myself. If they are as good as I think they will be, I am planning to purchase the combination for each of my managers. Thank you for the work you do!"
Director of Operations
“Mr Williams was kind enough to deliver a session via webinar to our hospitality management students and this was very well-received. His enthusiasm and passion are captivating and the tips he provided were appreciated by the student body. He is obviously very knowledgeable about the industry and eager to share his ideas with the future generation. Thank you to Mr Williams for his input in IMI’s Career Days.”
Head of Career Services
IMI International Hotel Management Institute, Luzern – Switzerland
"Your webinar was easily understood, straightforward, and was pointed in reacquainting people with purpose of the industry as a whole vs. job description. In a day and age where people not familiar with looking at the larger picture, your webinar was a pleasant re-introduction for some to the true meaning of 'hospitality'."
Reservations and Revenue Manager, Bernardus Lodge
"Bryan Williams is a motivational force to be reckoned with. I was fortunate enough to receive a signed copy of Engaging Service: 22 ways to Become a Service Superstar. I plan to share this book with my Management Staff and reinforce his message that excellence is an organization-wide process. My General Manager has asked that I give a short presentation based on Mr. Williams teachings, and I look forward to educating my colleagues on what it truly means to be world-class."
Kristin W. Durand
Transient Sales Manager
Le Pavillon Hotel - New Orleans, LA
"We were so impressed by Bryan's lecture at the Annual IRRRM Convention of The Leading Hotels of the World that we decided to contract him for training and ongoing consultancy and coaching for the Hotel Puente Romano and Marbella Club. Under the new inspection criteria for Leading Hotels the Puente Romano had its worst result in its 30 year history particularly due to the change in the employee's interaction with guests that was introcuced under the new standards so Bryan's visit was one of the key factors in embarking on a major change in our service philosophy and training.
With Bryan's visit and sessions which were attended by staff of all levels, plus subsequent coaching we were able to increase our score by almost 15 percent within the space of six months. This is the most objective concrete measure of the success that our hotel enjoyed from Bryan's visit and the ongoing follow-up and therefore I have no hesitation in recommending Bryan."
Marbella Club Hotel, Golf Resort, & Spa
“As just freshly graduated from a hotel management school, I took great inspiration from the webinar and it will be a great tool of motivation for myself. I am looking forward to apply your “rules” on myself and my team. Thank you very much for taking the time to share your knowledge with us.”
Novotel Phan Thiet Ocean Dunes & Golf Resort (Vietnam)
"Brian Williams was the perfect partner to assist us in raising the service levels at our resort. He is energetic, direct and offers solutions that are easy to implement. He helped us incorporate or vision, mission and core values into our pursuit of world class service. In our journey to provide excellence in everything we do, we found it in Brian Williams."
The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort
"I had a real pleasure attending Bryan Williams training courses recently at the Marbella Club. I participated at many training sessions in the past and I know how they can be repetitive, uninspiring or even boring sometimes. Bryan has the competences and the talent to build a top quality training programme of great interest and very inspiring for attendees at every level of the hierarchy. Bryan Williams delivers not only “World-Class Service” but also “World-Class Training"
