WHAT PEOPLE Are saying

Robert’s audiences are left supercharged and ready to improve their organizations and personal journeys.

“I’ve seen firsthand Robert’s unique gift of engaging groups large and small.  He is a master of transforming even the most complex concepts into an experience that is entertaining, enlightening and most importantly actionable.  When we’re fortunate enough to have Robert speak at one of our events, attendees always ask us to “get him back.” Mark Richards

“While it is a given that Robert Martichenko is a proven industry expert, his capabilities extend far beyond being well-informed and knowledgeable.  One of Robert’s exceptional capabilities is to communicate relevant concepts in an informative and interesting style.  As a result, he is able to instill a sense of urgency and enthusiasm in everything he does, including speaking and communicating with industry representatives.  He is a master at making the complicated seem simple, and the simple seem extraordinary.” C. John Langley Jr., Ph.D.,

“Not only can Robert speak to lean processes, but his view of work, people and the delicate ecosystem provides a different perspective of lean and leadership. The information was very thought-provoking and applicable to all people, no matter their level of professional experience or life situation. He helps make complex problems seem simple, and you walk-away with concepts you can apply to your everyday life as well as larger projects.”

“What I enjoy about Robert’s presentations is his exceptional ability to connect with the attendees on a personal level. You can feel the energy in the room rise as he creates a safe environment for people to share issues they are tackling. Best of all, attendees leave with real-time solutions because of Robert’s focus on problem solving and his resolve for continuous improvement. Robert’s excitement and passion are contagious. He can get the room both excited and serious about the same topic! With Robert you go on a journey that includes facing realities, seeking out the truth, dealing with whatever comes up along with the way with both a lightness and tenacity to see you though to an ending that is better than you could have imagined.” Carole Bennett, M.B.A.

“Robert Martichenko is a dynamic and engaging speaker. He is able to deftly walk the fine line between professional subject matter expert and trusted friend. When Robert finishes a talk, you are left feeling grateful for having learned something, and excited to go meet the guy. You believe him, you are entertained by him, and you know darned well you’d like to have him over to the house for a barbecue. Things never said at one of Martichenko’ s speeches: “I wish this guy would hurry up and finish.” John Nycz
