An example Keynote Address
GORDON JACKSON'S most popular keynote and banquet address, this
presentation reveals the essential steps necessary to mold the
best of all types of relationships - whether in the home, in the
workplace, in the classroom or in the sports arena. Gordon Jackson
draws heavily in this presentation on the "secrets"
revealed in his book by the same title and enhances the presentation
with a discussion about his own positive relations' experiences
as a management attorney, consultant, author, speaker, parent
and grandparent. He discusses significant changes that have occurred
in recent years that have revolutionized the American home and
workplace: transitioning the mindset of the parent from that of
a "punisher" to that of an "encourager" and
the mindset of the manager from that of a "dictator"
to that of a "resourcer."

they say about Gordon Jackson
"I have to tell you Gordon Jackson was GREAT! I laughed
so hard I hurt, and people were telling me at the end of our meeting
that he was the best entertainment we'd ever had. I think what
made him such a hit was the fact he remembered people's names
along with the plants they represented and worked that info into
his presentation, which made it personal.
