The diligent plans speaker group

Rooted

A solid foundation of core values forms the “roots” of a timeless leadership legacy. Our speaker group is built on such a foundation; grounded in the very bedrock of humanity and proud to serve.

Real

Do you ever feel like you are getting a “fly-by” version of a speaker? No connection, a canned speech…fake. We are transparent, authentic, and we show up for YOU. Guaranteed. That’s as real as it gets.

Relevant

It’s a common claim of ours, but worth repeating – our speakers are all doers! We stay at the cutting edge of today’s leadership environment and practices. We owe it you to stay relevant.

  • "My biggest challenge with my current assignment was to reconnect a team that had lost its cohesion. Based on an enthusiastic referral, I contacted Kris at Diligent Plans for help with the situation. I couldn’t be happier with the results of the full day team building event that he led us through. Now, my team is highly motivated and much more synchronized!"

    Izza Rodriguez, Senior Manager | JOHNSON & JOHNSON
  • "The County was recently looking for a thorough training regarding meaningful presentations and clear communication when approaching a decision-making audience. We were extremely satisfied with the training conducted and facilitated by Diligent Plans. The trainer, Kris Yagel, was patient, thorough and well informed on the subject matter, and he was able to connect with the audience in a way that made a lasting impact. We are grateful for his time with us and look forward to working with him again!"

  • "When we were looking for a speaker on leadership for the Annual Conference of a national trade association, we contacted Diligent Plans for suggestions. The company sent us resumes of five potential speakers, each offering a unique perspective on leadership. We selected our speaker and Diligent Plans was efficient in handling the contract and the details of the engagement. It was a pleasure working with Diligent Plans and we feel they are a great resource for future programs."

    Stella Jones, Executive Director | FISA
  • "I was looking for a team-building training that would engage my whole team – an event that could have an impact beyond the actual training day. I was referred to Kris Yagel at Diligent Plans. I met with Kris to discuss my goals and then allowed Kris to develop the training event. I was very pleased with what we learned as a team, and indeed, the team ended the day with ideas that we can carry forward in our work. Kris was warm and personable, and could easily relate to the team. Kris was very professional, and held the team’s attention throughout the event. It was a great experience and I look forward to working with Kris Yagel and Diligent Plans again!"
