Speaker Testimonials

He was terrific.  I would take him into any setting.  May have finally met someone I don’t want to follow.  I was very impressed.  One of America’s great teachers, no doubt.  And you can quote me on that.
—Gary Hamel, Strategy Guru, London Business School

Greenberg is a brilliant teacher–clear, insightful and never dull. His students take away an expanded knowledge of music, a keener sense of the culture that produced it, and an appetite for more. After taking three of his classes, I scheduled him in executive programs.
—Earl “Budd” F. Cheit, Dean Emeritus, Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley

Bob Greenberg makes music at the keyboard and at the podium. He is one of the all time great speaker-performers. His profound knowledge of music and his captivating speaking style leave one enthused and enlightened–all at the same time.
—Marvin Zonis, Professor, Graduate Business School, University of Chicago

Frankly, there is no one who combines the depth of musical knowledge, a flair for meaningful and relevant presentation, and a speaker who maintains riveting attention as well as Dr. Robert Greenberg.  While I would like to think that our attendees return year after year because of the excellent scientific content of our meetings, there are times when I wonder if they are not simply coming back to hear another Greenberg presentation.
—Jim Sbarbaro, M.D., F.A.C.C., Program Director, Horizons in Cardiology, Host and Moderator of Colorado Public Television’s “Horizons in Health”

Compelling and powerful. Makes you feel the whole of experience through music in a way that brings clarity to the confusion of everyday issues in which we get lost.
—Devinder Garawal, Director, Strategy Development, Canadian Pacific Corp.

Bob Greenberg’s presentations on music are brilliant performances.  The content, delivery and style combine the highest scholarship with ingenious metaphors and perfectly timed, and often irreverent, humor that result in an illuminating and thoroughly enjoyable experience for everyone from the beginner to the expert.
—Ruth Felt, Founder and Director, San Francisco Performances

I really defy anyone, no matter what their background in classical music, not to be entertained and educated in a lecture by Robert Greenberg.
—Elisbeth Challener, Executive Director (retired), Villa Montalvo, Silicon Valley
