Haydn Shaw Reviews

  • AAE was great - Great experience!
    Ideagen - Oct 14 2019

  • Haydn’s presentation on generations contains insights and processes that do indeed work. We’ve had Haydn back many times to teach our managers these tools. I found it so valuable and enjoyable that I invited my wife to come hear his presentation. It will improve your ability to speak the language of other generations at work and in your personal life.
    Kimball International, Inc. - Dec 09 2014

  • When Haydn spoke to our leaders, he got us thinking about generational differences in new ways that help us better attract and empower employees of all generations.
    Johnsonville Sausage - Dec 09 2014

  • With over 30,000 employees around the world it was imperative that we build collaborative and effective teams across multiple functions and geographies. Haydn was able to unlock the obstructionism we saw across generations. His delivery was motivating and his methods and insights were clear and empowering. With the path illuminated our teams with members from 22 to 62 rose and worked effectively and passionately.
    Collective Brands/Payless Shoes - Dec 09 2014

  • Let me thank you again for your excellent work at our annual Collective Brands leadership event. As you heard, your keynote was the best we’ve ever had so congratulations and thank you.
