When you hire NY Times Best-Selling Author & Keynote Speaker, Dr. Bob Nelson, “The Guru of Thank You,” you get more than just an energizing speaker.


To help you get the results you’re looking for, Dr. Bob will draw from his original research, doctoral work, and experience working with 80% of the Fortune 500. He will show you how to make a difference in the most effective ways. He’ll specifically share how to strategically integrate recognition into your organization’s daily work practices – how to identify and act on opportunities to enhance performance – and how to prevent and overcome obstacles along the way.

“At WD-40 Company, Employee Engagement is a key aspect of our company culture and success: 99% of our employees LOVE to tell people they work for our company, 98% feel their opinions and values are a good fit with our company’s culture and 97% know what results are expected of them. We’ve worked hard to create and maintain that culture and using Dr. Bob’s many books and having him present to all our leaders worldwide has been an integral part of that strategy.”

Garry Ridge, CEO

“Dr. Bob’s work is inspirational and packed with ideas and best practices on motivating, rewarding, recognizing, and engaging teams! Using his 1001 Rewards & Recognition Fieldbook, we were able to operationalize his work and create a rewards and recognition program that changed the culture of our organization, reduced turnover and saved millions of dollars in just the first year.”
