Speaking Testimonials:

Cathal McGlinchey

I would like to say a huge thanks to Sean for his recent presentation to our management team in Travelodge Ireland. The professionalism, experience and motivating style of communication that Sean conveys are second to none. The team left feeling energised and confident with the additional knowledge and processes highlighted in Sean's presentation. Thoroughly excellent throughout and thanks again Sean!

National Sales & Marketing Director at TRAVELODGE IRELAND
Niels Brabandt

I saw Sean speaking on numerous occasions. In Vancouver, Canada, as the closing speaker of an international convention. The same event confirmed him again as the opening speaker for the same international meeting some years later. I also saw him speak in Dublin, Ireland, and Manchester and London, England, sometimes facing very tough audiences and settings. One of these challenges was that he delivered a keynote from sitting within the audience, spotlight on him, delivering a brilliant speech ending with one of the many standing ovations he received when I saw him. Sean is a master of his craft. I highly recommend working with him.

Leadership Expert
David Malone

Sean Weafer is an exceptional executive coach in the areas of Leadership and Sales. Over the years he has spoken for The Executive Institute and received rave reviews from our members. Yesterday, for Covid-19 reasons, Sean delivered a live webinar for our members on the topic of 'How to motivate yourself and your team' during these turbulent times. Whether live in person or live online it makes no difference to Sean, - yesterday he delivered a dynamic, insightful, yet very practical online session for our members. Feedback has been outstanding from the one hundred plus audience - they gave Sean an average satisfaction score of 97/100! Here are some of the comments from our members - • Straight talking, practical advice that can be quickly applied within any team. Sean gave fantastic tips. • Sean has a great ability to make complex content – practicable, accessible, and useable. • A great energizer – with some really useful insights to keep my team focused during our remote working tenure As the person that selects speakers for all Executive Institute events I can't recommend any keynote speaker or executive coach any higher. We are indebted to the support he has always given our business community and we look forward to hearing from Sean in the future. Highly recommended and delighted to act as a verbal referee for any speaking inquiry.
