Over the years, many people have worked with Robert Douglas and here are just a few of the kind words that people have shared with him recently.

"Robert is not only a loyal, ethical colleague, effective professional speaker and friend. He has dedicated his adult life to both thirty nine years of organizational leadership and twenty eight as a Citizen Soldier, rising to the rank of Lt. Colonel with two tours of active duty in Iraq. When looking for an experienced professional-Robert is clearly your Speaker Of Choice!"

"When it comes to educating AND entertaining an audience, no one does it better than Mr. Robert Douglas! I have used Robert many times for college commencement, motivational keynotes, and leadership training! Robert is unique. He has the ability to keep an audience on the edge of their seats while simultaneously delivering his powerful message.  I would recommend Robert for your next speaking engagement."

- Joel A. Dawson

"I've known Robert for a number of years through Toastmasters and the National Speakers Association of New Orleans.  The speeches he's given at Toastmasters always have a positive and motivational message.  I needed a dynamic speaker to address the new class of the Baton Rouge Area Leadership Program, and asked Robert if he would do so.  He graciously spoke to this cohort of current and emerging leaders in August, 2016.  Now, in summer 2017, class members still remark on his words of wisdom.  They remember his Three I's of Leadership: Inspiration, Integrity and Intelligence.  Robert has a keen knack for boiling down a complex topic into a memorable kernel of truth that can be remembered and reflected upon for a very long time.  I keep a page in my planner of 'Wisdom from Dr. Douglas' and refer to it whenever I need a boost.

Robert's life story is moving and inspirational.  His educational and personal accomplishments are nothing short of amazing, and his military leadership and service to our country are exemplary.  He skillfully shares his life's lessons with an audience so that their own lives are enhanced by his messages.  I am grateful that Robert has enriched my life through his powerful communication skills."
