Testimonials from Event Organizers

I brought Paul to speak to participants in our Leadership Development Program at Johnson & Johnson. Paul was super engaging and high energy.

He was fabulous and has already been requested to return for another speaking engagement!

Paul spoke to something essential all business owners crave: achieving meaningfulness and reward in how we approach our work and, by extension, our life. I appreciated his science based approach to demonstrate how greater satisfaction can be achieved. He was sincere and approachable.

Murray Kimber, SpeedPro


We needed someone to come in a give the team a lift – to remind us of what we can accomplish together, and that our workplace is a good place to be!

I am telling anyone who will listen that Paul is fantastic!

Susan Dankert, Pet Industry and Joint Advisory Council


Paul presented a  high energy and positive session on “Happiness and Well-being”.  He entered a room of a somewhat skeptical group of professionals and was able to keep them engaged and participative throughout the session.  He is able to combine theoretical knowledge, storytelling and audience participation in his presentation. I highly recommend him.

Marna Johns, Vancouver Island Correctional Center


The feedback has been great! Everyone who attended said they really valued what they learned. Paul, you are so energetic and knowledgeable. It was great to have someone so enthusiastic and passionate talk about happiness and mindfulness. Thanks for being open, honest and such a great presenter! We hope to have you present at Clearly again soon!

Mindy McManus, Clearly


Paul had an easy engaging style and used a variety of formats to present an interesting and informative workshop. It certainly inspired and encouraged us to think about the ways we can positively influence our workplace. I have clearly observed the ongoing positive impact of that on our staff. From an organizational point of view, it was time very well spent!

This was one of the best presentations I have ever been to.  So powerful and effective. It can literally change your perspective on happiness for the rest of your life!

Keivan Mehrtabar, Diacon


As a public speaker Paul was inspiring. Just right . . . not pushy or contrived, rather he was 100% committed to his mission. It was an offering, take it or leave it. I loved it. Paul is a friendly, confident speaker with no overinflated personality. Great delivery. Great message.

Dawn Miles, View Royal Municipality


Paul provided a window into a necessary understanding of human behavior that will benefit all who attend his talks. His easy-going style of delivery allows everyone to connect not only with the material, but also with him. Paul provides us with the tools to harness this essential human experience, and make it benefit our daily existence.

Susan Sproule, Forest Safety Council


The scientific perspective was an interesting approach to the concept of individual happiness. The presentation was engaging and informative; providing tips to immediately start impacting the neural network and happiness level.

Aimee Arsenault, Tridon Communications


Paul Krismer presented an entertaining, informative, and thought-provoking presentation on happiness and positive psychology. Feedback from the talk was very positive and we look forward to bringing him back at some point in the future for other presentations. I would highly recommend Paul as a speaker and “happiness expert”.

Eli Baker, Victoria Hospice


Paul led a session that was extremely engaging. We all walked away learning something new about ourselves – valuable information that we could use both in our professional and personal lives. I would strongly recommend Paul for corporate workshops and/or one on one professional coaching.

Linda Tesser, IG Publications


Funny! Energetic! Relevant! A ten out of ten! I recommend Paul.

Chris Kleeven, Fortis BC


. . . a consummate professional and truly skilled for this role.

Dianne Hawkins, Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce

Not only did Paul knock it out of the park with his high-energy keynote, he was also a fantastic emcee and panel moderator for our event. He was well prepared and kept the event running smoothly from start to finish. His experience, guidance, and insights as a safety expert were invaluable, and his thought-provoking message hit home and resonated with our audience of safety professionals. We felt confident and secure working with Paul and his team from the very start and look forward to having Paul back for an event in the future.

Anita Zubricki, Safety Services Manitoba


Paul was a delight to work with. He showed up early so we could check all of the technical aspects of his program. He was super energetic and engaged with the audience. He was exactly what we needed for the closing of our annual meeting.

Tonya Suits, The American Society of Workers’ Compensation Professionals (AMCOMP)


Working with Paul and his team was wonderful. Not only was he an engaging, thought-provoking speaker, but he was easy to work with and highly professional. Our 600+constituents were excited and energized by his discussion of resiliency in an uncertain time. We would highly recommend him for future keynote opportunities.

Ann Snyder, Council for Advancement and Support of Education


Exactly what our people needed. Our attendees were thrilled with the content and the message was right on point! Paul was a pleasure to work with.

Jennifer Moore, Spark Womens’ Conference


Paul and David were both a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. They were both responsive and thorough. The survey results from Paul’s keynote session at the 2021 Western Regional Dental Experience were fantastic. Over 99% of the more than 700 people that attended the session rated it as “excellent” and the most frequent comment was that attendees would have liked the session to be longer. AzDA will forward to having Paul speak at an event again in the future.

Shana Abrahams, AzDA


Paul Krismer was the best dose of energy and uplifting motivation for our healthcare audience in 2022. His presentation on The Serious Business of Positive Emotions was extremely engaging and our audience complimented his “contagious enthusiasm” and “obvious passion” and said he was a “most Excellent choice of speaker.” Several attendees asked us to invite Paul back for future sessions.

Joyce Pearson, Mississippi Hospital Association


We received positive feedback on our meeting, and to Paul’s presentation “Resiliency in the Midst of Uncertainty: Deploying Proven, Powerful Tools to Achieve Success.” The session was insightful and really made us think about how positivity affects our own health and the health of others around us. The knowledge Paul shared was extremely helpful to members. It was a great way to finish our meeting. Hopefully we can work with Paul again in the future!

Leane Swales, The Conference Board of Canada


The last few years have been extremely challenging for our members, so we wanted a fun and engaging keynote speaker who could re-invigorate them with meaningful and inspiring content. Paul set the tone for a great annual conference and motivated our attendees to go back to their workplace and be the best version of themselves. Also, Paul was so thoughtful leading up to the event and worked hard to customize his presentation for our audience.

Da-Nell Pedersen, Arizona Alliance for Community Health Centers


British Columbia College of Nurses & Midwives engaged Paul for our first in-person all staff meeting as our newly amalgamated organization. We wanted to uplift our staff and provide them with some tangible tools to continue to be successful – especially in such times of change. Paul’s talk, which addressed the science of positive psychology, did just that. Our staff were laughing, listening, and openly engaging with Paul while learning about how happiness creates success. We took away practical tips to be happier (i.e. successful) and to practice gratitude and appreciative inquiry. Paul took the time to learn about our unique organization and spoke directly to us in a way that made the whole experience more personal and impactful.

Louise Aerts, British Columbia College of Nurses & Midwives


Paul is such a delightful and dynamic speaker. During his 90-minute presentation, he made our audience laugh, smile, and focus on the positive in both their professional and personal lives, rather than circumstances that may not be going well with them. His topic was on point, and we were so impressed with the way he engaged our audience and the techniques he used to connect with them. Paul’s positive energy is an attraction for people, and many of our members said he was the best part of our conference.

Petra Rapmund, Rehabilitation Return to Work Program


I saw Paul speak as a keynote at a large conference in Denver and he knocked it out of the park with his high-energy, engaging style and on-point presentation. Paul also presented to our staff, a small group of about 20, and conducted an in-house workshop for our leaders where he was quite effective at right-sizing his talk to accommodate a more intimate setting. Our staff enjoyed Paul’s obvious passion for and knowledge of the topic as well as his ability to weave examples, questions, and discussions into the presentation, making it more interactive and inspirational. I highly recommend Paul as a speaker and we would work with him again!

Kim Gill, Civica Associations Conferences & Exhibitions


Our event was relatively small, and Paul took the time to learn people’s names, ask questions about our industry and was able to deliver an engaging, powerful presentation. We had great feedback from our industry, and everyone was able to take something away from Paul’s session.

Stacey Wills, Manitoba Trucking Association


Paul brings an incredible energy and a fresh perspective to any audience. If you are looking to engage, inspire, and elevate your event, I would strongly recommend him.

Allison Ramchuk, KGH Foundation


Paul was such a pleasure to work with and the consummate pro. His live sessions at our event were insightful, empowering and imbued with both passion and practical takeaways. We highly recommend him and look forward to working together again soon!

Michael-Oliver Harding, Boma France


Over the past couple of years, we have engaged several guest speakers to present to our management team, and Paul was by far the best! Paul was very knowledgeable of our business and the subject matter, making him relatable with our group. His passion and honest feedback to questions from our team made the presentation a memorable experience for all in attendance and we look forward to working with Paul again in the future.

Marcel LeCoure, Canfor


Growth Dimensions was fortunate to have Paul Krismer as the Keynote Speaker of our 2020 Annual Event. His live presentation during the event was engaging and personal, as he continually engaged the audience to share ideas and answers. He also remained for an additional time period to speak to attendees and answers questions. More than 1/2 of our attendees stayed after the conclusion of the main event to listen to more positive words of wisdom from Paul. His message of positivity and how to incorporate that into the workplace was a timely and relevant message, given the stressors created by the pandemic and other outside influences. Some of the comments we received from our attendees are: “[Paul’s] message was positive and inspiring.” “On a scale from 1-10, Paul scores a 10.” We can’t thank Paul enough for his contribution to making our event a success.

Heather Wick, Growth Dimensions


Paul was very engaging. We got a lot of excellent feedback from our customers, saying that they found his presentation useful both for their personal lives and their business operations. I have been doing this work for over thirteen years and I have never seen our attendees respond and engage more than we saw with Paul. People were eagerly shouting across the room wanting to respond and participate! We will certainly work with Paul again.

Kate M. Paciorek, National Interstate Insurance


Paul led two virtual workshops for our GEAPS Virtual Leadership Conference. He was very well received by our attendees. He encouraged cameras on, which along with his methodology, helped drive strong levels of engagement by participants. Paul was strong in delivery, easy to work with, and used high-end video and audio tools to best support his presentations. And all were highly pleased with his emcee work and production of his short introductory videos of other speakers.

Jim Lenz, Grain Elevator and Processing Society (GEAPS)


I feel very fortunate to have listened to Paul’s talk about happiness. At first, I was skeptical about this topic, but right after he started the presentation, I found myself in a very different mood. I highly recommend him for any group of people who need some inspiration. He is truly the Happiness Expert. I am already using what I learned, and life is better for it!

Attila Kovarcsik, One Thyme Pictures


Paul delivered an inspirational keynote and reminded all of us to make gratitude and happiness a priority! He hit the mark, with his focus on the science of happiness coupled with practical applications. Paul’s masterful use of Zoom led to a highly engaging and fun virtual session with rave reviews.

Karen McGrail, The John C. Stalker Institute of Food and Nutrition


My group found him very engaging, very interactive and they had lots of take-aways from the presentation. I highly recommend him.

Kerry Brown, MacKay CEO Forums


Our group enjoyed his presentation beyond belief, the content was so valuable and impactful. Everyone walked away with a feeling of well-being and found the message to have a tremendous amount of application for our work environment. I truly almost forgot he was not in the room, since he controlled the group and engaged them so well. I would highly recommend considering Paul for your next conference or as your next keynote. His stand-out presentation will leave you with an entire new outlook on how we conduct ourselves in today’s challenging and changing lives. His message is truly one for the ages, and his ability to resonate with his audience was beyond expectation.

Jerry Lemm, Montana Electric Cooperatives’ Association


I was looking to build resiliency in my team during a time of big change. We wanted to hear how we have some control over how we show up every day at work; that there is a lot more benefit to choosing to be optimistic. Paul gave us what we wanted. My staff appreciated the humour and his great energy. Paul is very professional. We couldn’t have asked for more.

Carol Crowfoot, Alberta Energy Regulator


We really appreciated Paul’s ability to tailor his presentation to our audience and timeframe. He was excellent at engaging our members and delivering meaningful, relevant information.

Shauna McReynolds, Pacific Northwest Utilities


In my opinion, Paul was a great way to kick off our conference. He set the tone for what we wanted our attendees to be able to accomplish during the week. He was engaging, active and did a really good job connecting with our audience. We were very pleased with the message he was able to share.

Dan Whatley, Auburn University


Members of the Credit Union Managers Association of Manitoba enjoyed Paul’s presentation. It really resonated with many of our members, and we have feedback that they would be able to put a lot of his advice and tips into practice in both their work and home settings. He also received the highest audience rating of the speakers we had this year.

Maxine Gromnisky, Steinbach Credit Union


Paul was really well received. He brought a great balance of science and touchy-feelly. We left the retreat as a different team. We are still high five days later!

Mary Lou Newbold, Mayfair Optometric


Our attendees enjoyed the event and having a feel-good topic focused on their mental outlook and positivity. The talk was well presented, and Paul is such a great speaker who is easy to work with!

Michelle Givvin, The National Association of Subrogation Professionals


Paul’s Opening Keynote Presentation for our Partners in Prevention 2021 Health & Safety Virtual Conference was a great way to kick-off the event. He was inspiring, engaging, relevant, and professional- both in front of the audience and behind the scenes. A pleasure to work with and feedback was very positive. Two thumbs up!

Joanna Hickling, Workplace Safety & Prevention Services


We asked participants, “What did you enjoy most about the program?” The answer was “Paul Krismer!” He was the highlight of the program. Everyone enjoyed Paul’s energy. Lawyers loved the science!

Elizabeth Parizot, The Advocates’ Society


Frankly, Paul undersold himself. He was very engaging. He was so good we brought him back to speak to the whole plant. . . . we got great reviews from our employees. They all got something out of it!

Ryan Popilchak, Cascades Containerboard Packaging


Working with Paul Krismer was an absolute delight — from the very beginning, signing the contract, through preparation for the event, the actual presentation, and the follow up afterwards. At the conference he was very energetic. He brought a good message to delegates. He gave everyone a take-away that they could action immediately. He was the ideal keynote speaker!

Joseph Fritz, Investment Casting Institute


Paul has been fantastic . . . in two capacities: he has provided coaching to our senior level staff and has taught the principles of positive psychology to our entire leadership team. We will continue working with Paul.

Peter Fitzpatrick, Vancouver Island Regional Correctional Center


Paul’s presentation was dynamic and engaging and I think it was really relevant. It spoke to every person in the room, regardless of their rank, their past experience and their age. He was really relatable. I followed up with people afterwards and many of them are actually using the tools passed on by Paul, such as keeping a gratitude journal to train the brain to see positive things more readily. I had a conversation with a couple people who said the workshop had a significant impact on them. It gave them additional tools and the motivation to keep moving towards their goal of being healthier and happier. As a result of his impactful and practical workshop, I’ve recommended Paul to several other departments in our organization.

Vicki Gill, Canadian Department of Defense


I try to bring a special speaker in for a staff event at least once a year. Overall, Paul was excellent. He was the best speaker we have had so far!

Claire Flewelling-Wyatt, Pemberton Holmes Ltd.


Quite simply…. mind-blowingly good. I had the pleasure of listening to Paul at the recent IDI Design Symposium in Vancouver. His presentation was captivating, convincing, hilarious, incredibly well delivered – the room was entirely engrossed, entertained, and engaged… and probably a lot more adjectives that don’t begin with ‘e’… I have attended many (too many) a conference where we are slugging back the coffee to stay engaged – not least on the last day before lunch. Paul was seriously one of the most interesting and high caliber presenters I have ever been fortunate enough to see!

Jules Galloway, Evolve Interiors


I brought in Paul to open our Safety Center’s 2021 Safety Symposium. He made the case that psychological capital is critical to the success of creating powerful safety cultures. We got tremendous feedback from his talk. It felt like all of us were on the edge of our seats. The happy, positive energy felt amazing, many of us feeling high… we ALL wanted more!

Gayleen Grigoreas, Safety Center Incorporated


Paul provided a window into a necessary understanding of human behavior that will benefit all who attend his seminars. His easy-going style of delivery allows everyone to connect not only with the material, but also with him. Paul teaches us that happiness is not a fleeting moment where we briefly identify with an emotion we crave. We are all similar in desiring to replicate repeatedly this very human phenomenon. Paul provides us with the tools to harness this essential human experience, and make it benefit our daily existence.

Stacey Sproule, Forest Safety Council


Paul actively and effectively engaged our audience…. the presentation was fabulous.

Lisa McGuire, Manufacturing Safety Alliance


Over the past year I’ve had the pleasure of working with Paul on two occasions. Public speaking is a calling for Paul, and this quickly becomes apparent. He wants to make a positive difference in people’s lives, and it shows. For those who want to offer something of depth and substance to their audience in a charming and upbeat fashion, I recommend Paul without hesitation.

Andrew Klukas, Women in Carwash


I’ve seen Paul speak on a number of occasions and so that’s why I invited him to come speak at our event. Paul’s team was very easy to work. Our event was all about positive safety culture so we asked Paul to come and set the tone for the meeting. It worked out wonderfully! He was very entertaining, had a great message, and it really resonated!

Lori Saretsky & Troy Withey, West Fraser


He performed extremely well. He was high energy. He kept the room really engaged and interactive. His content was on point — it was exactly what we had hoped it would be! 100%
