Client Love!

The talk was fantastic! It was very informative and Jeffery was very knowledgeable and he presented the information flawlessly. It was hands-down the best talk I have seen in my 20+ year professional career. I can't say enough good things about this talk and the engagement of both men and women. 

~Conference Attendee of Fortune 100 Company

Jeffery was a phenomenal speaker last week!  Our Women's Leadership Network is all the more energized now to engage men in our important work to advance women at all phases of their career.

~Senior Business Consultant, Financial Company

Having a man speak at a women's leadership event was a little different for us but we knew Jeff's work was around engaging men in the joint effort to advance women in the workplace and we were confident in his ability to fill the room. And fill it he did. We should have done two sessions!

~Executive Director, Leadership Conference

We've been receiving kudos from participants who were appreciative of the 'rich content' and 'robust discussion'. They were also impressed with the caliber of the presenters! Well, thanks Jeff!

~Global Conference President



Very insightful and well prepared. Very engaging speaker. Gave clear takeaways and good audience engagement.

~ SHRM Conference Attendee

Jeffery Halter walked on stage wearing red pumps to make the point that men and women are having very different experiences in the workplace. His timely message was a hit at the women's conference!

~Program Coordinator Women's Conference

I found the keynote speaker very interesting, especially some of the stats on the shifting of the future workforce in terms of gender and millennials, and potential shortages.
