Feedback from Grant’s Events

“Grant Lichtman is an uber-expert. He is the guest speaker to afford your audience with the exact blend of experience, research, thoroughness and wit to engage an audience to not only listen but decide to act on his words. He demonstrates the importance of community challenge coupled with circumspect thoroughness. I invited Grant to take on the intelligent minds of CFO’s and Heads of Schools at our Risk Management Conference for Boarding Schools and he hit the mark with his opening address.”
Katie Koestner
Executive Director, Campus Outreach Services

“Grant stopped by St. Luke’s to visit the Center for Leadership on his journey, and I can’t tell you how valuable an experience it was to be on the hosting end. Spending the morning talking with him, connecting with the insights he’s discovered on his journey, reflecting on the probing questions he asks and interesting issues he raises about the nature of our school and the way we pursue our mission… about as rewarding as it gets.”
Jim Foley
Director of Center for Leadership, St. Luke’s School

“Great job, Grant. I think everyone in the room at the last session of the ISAS Business Officers’ Conference was blown away with the open presentation and participation. The energy, enthusiasm, and creativity just exploded. Just goes to show you that numbers people can think out of the box! Can’t wait to see how everyone takes the message back to their schools and what form of implementation comes about. I know I can’t wait to share with my head of school and leadership team.”
Elise Murphy
CFO, The Lamplighter School

“Your recent presentation was the highlight of the conference for me! The inspiration you provided led to an amazing idea-generation process with my peers that I found incredibly exciting. I feel more motivated to facilitate change and improvements in my school than I have in years, and I’m anxious to take my ideas back to see where they land. Grant, thanks for re-igniting the spark for me!”
Kathy Peters
CFO, Phoenix Country Day School
