What clients are saying about Lex

Financial Services Industry

It's been weeks since Lex Gillette delivered his keynote address to teammates during our annual learning and professional development event and we're still talking about him! One of our executive leaders called his message "the keynote of keynotes."


Terrific time spent with Mr. Gillette. I appreciate what Lex has accomplished in his life and it inspires me to overcome and achieve as well. These messages are needed and should be presented more often than they are in our time of social and political unrest. We are exposed to too much negative in the world today and the overwhelming positive example and the life Mr. Gillette is leading should be celebrated. Thank you for being with us and inspiring us today!
