Select Testimonials

We were extremely fortunate at Humber River Hospital to hear John Foley present this year. I had previously heard Mr. Foley delivering his practical and inspiring messages about high performance, living up to one's potential, and motivating the people around you to excel. I wanted my leadership team to hear from him as well. He certainly met all my expectations. Mr. Foley spoke about building a culture of excellence, and an environment of trust. About building a safe place where leaders, staff and physicians can own, and learn from, their mistakes. He spoke in ways that made sense to everyone about how our organization can elevate high reliability to an entirely new level. I believe everyone who heard that talk left feeling engaged, inspired and committed. I strongly recommend you create an opportunity to hear John Foley speak.
