I’ve known Spencer for close to two years and he has been instrumental in teaching me how to be more effective both on a personal and professional level. His insight into our company and into each individual member has been a key factor in helping our company achieve goals which had previously been unachievable. His guidance, his honesty and ability to make you face both your strengths and weaknesses has been influential in the lives of many members of our team, including myself. I am a better person, more intuitive, more emotionally intelligent, as a result of his guidance.

I had a great pleasure to take part in the communication workshop run by Spencer Horn during the PMI Leadership Institute Master Class 2017 in Chicago. Spencer is a great trainer and motivator with a charismatic voice and a very positive attitude to life. The way he shared his knowledge and experience and how constructive feedback he gave was absolutely fabulous. Spencer can genuinely help develop your leadership skills. I really recommend him as a leadership trainer!

President at Project Management Institute, Panama Chapter
Spencer Horn spoke at one of our recent Convention Services Association luncheon meeting. As a board member of CSA, I can tell you first hand that if the speaker doesn’t grab our member’s attention from the outset, our members can become easily distracted. But, when Spencer began his presentation on “The Power of Responsibility”, I could tell almost immediately he had them hooked. Not only was he entertaining and engaging, but the topic was interesting and educational in a way that everyone could relate to. Spencer delivered a compelling message to our members and the feedback I received has been overwhelmingly positive.
I hope that Spencer will consider speaking to our group again, and I will certainly recommend him to other associations and to any organization who is looking for a true professional and dynamic speaker!

Spencer was GREAT! He was perfect for our manager’s retreat. He provided manager’s valuable tools and insight to take back with them. Spencer did an “excellent” job. Everyone was very pleased!
HR Manager, Krazan & Associates, Inc.
I highly recommend Spencer for any workshop or speaking engagement. He recently spoke for us at the Project Management Institute (PMI) Montana Chapter’s Annual Professional Development Day in Bozeman, Montana in fall of 2016. Spencer is energetic, enthusiastic and provides numerous and varied insights on how to grow as a leader – you feel you walk away with solutions you can immediately apply to your leadership practices. He provides relevant professional and personal experiences to parallel his speaking topics. Great speaker – we look forward to working with him in the future if given the opportunity.
VP of Program, Montana PMI Chapter
I was looking for a 6th star, but that’s not available. Spencer Horn Solutions gives a one of a kind approach to not only understanding how to communicate with your coworkers, but how to communicate in life. Our team of 25 was lucky enough to be in the presence of Spencer over the past 3 days. My own personal development is enough to get me to write this review, but it’s actually seeing the change in my team that is even more impressive. Usually with a large group of people, there are some who might not benefit, I can say with certainty that our entire team did not only benefit, but we’ve all become that much closer. To Spencer and his team, thank you!
Affiliate Manager, Madrivo
This is a must-do for anyone who is interested in personal and professional growth. I have gained so much insight into myself and into different personalities and communication styles from Spencer’s exercises. It has benefitted me as an employee, friend, volunteer, parent, and spouse. Highly recommended!
Director of Accounting, Madrivo
Thank you once again for your participation as a keynote speaker for the recent Women in Business Summit on Sept. 15th at the Palms Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Your message of Emotional Intelligence and Developing Your Potential to the audience of women entrepreneurs was not only delivered with passion and enthusiasm but the attendees were engaged with your interactive presentation. With the event a few weeks behind us, I am still getting feedback of the event and the powerful message relayed.
Your expertise and energy that you exuded throughout your keynote was not only infectious, but connections were made in the process. All organizations and companies would be fortunate to have your words of wisdom.
I wish you continued success.

Sorry for the delayed reply, Spencer was fantastic and I received great feedback from the team regarding his session with the team.

Thanks and have a great rest of your week!”
Vice President MassMedia Corporate Communications
Being a sole owner of a $35 million construction firm creates numerous challenges for me as a leader and me as an individual. About 7 years ago, I had the privilege of getting to know Spencer Horn when listening to one of his presentations. I was taken back by the insight and ease he conveyed his message in describing and providing solutions to real life situations and the ability to drill down and really get to the underlying issue at hand.
Since that time, we have engaged Spencer specifically to engage our team. During these three years he has led us through intensive leadership development workshops and individual executive coaching along with one time situations that may arise. He has led company-wide retreats where the message needs to be geared toward office staff along with field staff and had been instrumental in developing better communication tools that we use on a daily basis.
Currently, Spencer is facilitating our journey to strategically double the size of our revenue over the next several years while also supporting us in succession management, business and leadership development. We use his expertise in our executive level hiring and appreciate the insight he has with the individuals he vets. We will continue to utilize Spencer’s abilities as we move forward in our journey.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Spencer and vouch for his expertise in helping company’s and individuals and moving those same people to the next level.
If I can answer any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me.
“Do you work with, or are you part of, High Performance teams in Emergency Management? Do stressful situations cause team members to behave in ways that shut down effective communication? Spencer Horn has devoted his life’s work to helping high performance teams break through communication behaviors and barriers that limit our ability to be our very best as a team. Spencer has an artful (serious combined with humor) way of connecting with individuals and teams. If you are looking for someone professionally trained and devoted to helping your team achieve the next level of personal development and leadership, Spencer is an outstanding choice who can take you and your team there.

He was such an asset to everything he touched, I then brought him to my company, TPC in 2010. He now has share clients of TPC HR Payroll Consultants and community outreach to help support them in achieving their goals personally and professionally.

I have known Spencer Horn for more than a decade. I was on a non-profit board of directors that hired Spencer to be the Executive Director of our organization. We were both passionate about expanding the quality of treatment and support options for children with cancer and blood diseases. I went onto found the Children’s Specialty Center and Cure 4 The Kids Foundation and Spencer worked with a leadership development company of which he became the CEO.
Over the past five years, Spencer has provided leadership and communication training to our organization. Together with his business associate, he helped improve communication, hiring practices, reduce turnover, strengthen trust and team work. We have improved our self-awareness and culture since partnering with Spencer and his team.
The results have allowed my organization and me to operate more effectively. We have improved the leadership capacity of our top managers and are working on the next tier of managers. I have been able to step back from the day-to-day challenges of the business. Spencer and his team have helped me focus on more strategic issues. This has allowed me to take our organization to higher standards of service and improved treatment therapies.
I highly recommend Spencer and his organization. You will improve your results through expanding leadership capabilities and strengthening your culture.
Please feel free to contact me.
President & CEO, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation
Being in sales for over 20 years, I’ve done several training classes, but nothing reached out to me as much as spending the time working with Spencer. I’ve always felt that my personality wasn’t quite the typical salesperson’s, but have since learned to use my strengths and focus on adapting my weaker traits to improve my overall results. Self awareness has generated improved sales and a promotion! I would highly recommend Spencer to anyone looking to become more aware of their ability and how to use that awareness to their best advantage. Spencer is fantastic!!!!

“My favorite speaker was Spencer Horn. He gave two presentations. I would have gone to both, but decided to diversify the classes I attended in order to attempt to manage my “Talent Triangle.” I attended the session on Branding Yourself, which was probably my biggest motivation to start my blog back up, again. If you ever have the chance to work with Spencer, or attend one of his presentations, I highly recommend it.

President at Sterling Wealth Management
“Spencer Horn, just delivered his presentation on “The X-Factor to Becoming a Successful Leader: Improve Your Emotional Intelligence, Increase Your Bottom Line!” to my Vistage Group. Spencer explains through his presentation that Emotional Intelligence is the X Factor for success and that emotionally intelligent leaders are more effective at achieving results. He communicates the message in a dynamic and enthusiastic fashion capturing everyone’s attention and connecting with the audience. He is an excellent speaker and I highly recommend you consider him when booking speakers in 2016.”

He can make a difficult experience productive, bring large groups of different personalities together and perform oustanding tasks with development of leadership characteristics. His timing is superb and can always be counted on even when his time is in high demand with his busy schedule. These characteristics apply to all aspects of his daily efforts.”

“Spencer Horn was beyond phenomenal! He gave us an enlightening and enthusiastic seminar on “The X Factor to Becoming a Successful Leader.” He spoke in a way that silenced the room because we were all locked and loaded on every word. Spencer spoke from the heart and didn’t tell us about Emotional Intelligence – he showed us. Effective Leadership is mostly about Emotional Intelligence. Both IQ and Technical Skills just count for 9% of an effective leader. EI is the rest.
Spencer customized the seminar for the hospitality industry since he was speaking to NHLA (Nevada Hotel and Lodging Association). He knew our industry and helped us with current challenges we face every day. The biggest take-away for me was the reminder that when something happens, we have a choice how we respond. 10 percent is what happens and 90 percent is how we respond. Thank you Spencer for time well spent.”
Workplace ESL Solutions Founder and Chief Motivator
“Spencer, Thank you for an awesome presentation. I believe the classes really impacted me in a way where it helps me to refine my communication skills, which will make me better in my work, relationships, and overall as a person. Taking responsibility for my own successes and failures, again, will improve me as a whole person. I have a couple mentors in my life that I look up to and learn from; with understanding how to handle the cause and effect in different situations, I’m able to pass on my experiences to someone else as a mentor myself. The presentations you provided gives me a track to run on and goals to work towards. I couldn’t be more appreciative of your time.”

I would highly recommend Spencer and his work to any prospective clients or employers.”
Starbucks District Manager
“I would like to share a brief letter of gratitude to Mr. Spencer Horn for the inspirational keynote speech that he presented to our management team a few weeks ago. The setting was absolutely perfect! We overlooked the ocean at the Fairmont in Mayakoba, Mexico, while enjoying the ocean air in an open room setting. I challenged Spencer to speak on team building with an emphasis on personal responsibility. I was certain that Spencer would be a dynamic speaker, and certainly took the challenge head-on!
Spencer did a great job of giving our group insight on the challenge of “taking ownership”. Everyone in the room recognized how often we blame situations or other people instead of taking personal responsibility when times get tough.
I cannot express my gratitude enough for Spencer taking the time to spend with our leadership team. He did a phenomenal job in representing his organization, as well as confirmed my expectation that he is a dynamic speaker with tremendous leadership concepts to share!”
COO, Cal-Maine Foods, Inc.
“What everyone else has already commented here is no exaggeration. Sarah and I can count on less than one hand a few people whose examples, mentoring and coaching in business have provided a valuable, lasting positive influence and prepared us to enjoy the success that we currently experience. One specific asset that he brings that we observed perhaps over all others is an absolute “success mindset”. His ability to give focus, energy and attention to his vision of the achievement of a goal to the exclusion of the possibility of any other result delivers the results he expects. That modeling has been tremendously important to us.”
Sales Professional & Entrepreneur
“Spencer explains through his presentation that Emotional Intelligence is the X Factor for success. And that emotionally intelligent leaders are effective and promote business results. The best part of his presentation?… Emotional intelligence can be learned!! He communicates the message exceptionally well, in a dynamic and enthusiastic fashion. He captures everyone’s attention and connects with the audience from beginning to end. Spencer is undoubtedly an excellent speaker!”
