Dirk's "tell-em-like-it-is" business presentations address the meeting participants in a demanding and direct manner. Most meeting participants believe it is the presenter's responsibility to perform. Dirk's presentation clearly places the responsibility to perform on the meeting participants' shoulders, demanding they look at themselves and their performance objectively. No other business speaker gets the same results.
