What People Are Saying…

Head of Sales

"Julian is the perfect balance of motivation, insight, articulation, inflection, and charm. His confidence commands the room while his energy inspires and entertains."

Program Manager

"Julian has helped me immensely in distinguishing myself and my firm in the marketplace amongst a myriad of competition."


"Julian was the keynote speaker about how to recruit when the candidate pool is limited. Unlike some recruiting seminars where speakers try to sell you on their ideas, Julian engaged the audience with questions, and scenarios. His presentation was very informative, while also entertaining."

"The future of leadership is through stewardship to maximize effectiveness, rise above competitors and experience personal fulfilment while making a positive impact in society.”

- Julian Placino
