"Just finished our latest regional team meeting. WOW! You would not believe the difference in team interaction. They still failed to get to required standard on sending pre read materials (although this was improved). However the rich discussions got us to decisions we needed. Will let you know how the next one goes. The great Larry Chao does it again and helps transform another team! Many thanks."
Managing Director, Johnson Diversey Asia Pacific
"Just a short note to thank you for your excellent input into our Conference last week. Overall I feel it was a great success for us and your contribution both in facilitating the event and also your guidance on speaker materials etc was very valuable. I do not think we could have done the 'continuity' piece as well had we attempted it ourselves.
So despite the short notice it went very well, and the idea to move the final sessions down to the Bar area was great!! A really memorable way to turn the event at its conclusion."
Great to work with you.
Managing Director - Cadbury Schweppes Southeast Asia
"Many thanks for assisting me and our team to embark our 2007 strategy meeting. We have improved our business and organization a lot since we first met in year 2000."
Managing Director, Associated British Foods Thailand
"We were all very impressed with your leading role in our discussion last week, and we enjoyed it very much. Thank you so much for your effort."
"Thanks for facilitating the conference (150 participants) for us, there were some instant feedback with very positive comments. The audience was thrilled by your approach, guess it's an eye-opener for many of them. There's a lot to follow up with the survey results and the suggestions raised by the group."
Development Manager, DLA Piper Rudnick
"Larry, I owe YOU the huge thank you!!! You were wonderful – just as Cliff had said you'd be – and I received fabulous feedback from the rest of my group on you and the overall workshop! I'm hooked now so don't be surprised to get a call from me same time next year!"
"This was the first time I have attended a workshop with senior management where none of them were text messaging or leaving the room to make phone calls during the day. You (Larry Chao) had them engaged and debating issues"
Nokia Regional Senior Manager
"Chao Group's strategy paper was very well received indeed. John Rink (global managing partner) described it as a fantastic piece of work and was pleased that we had not just outlined a wish list, but had been pragmatic and identified practical ways to deliver on the items we had identified."
Managing Partner, Allen & Overy Singapore
"Larry, is was such an honor to be one of your facilitators, and also an unforgettable experience working with my fellow facilitators. We all had such a great time. You were so full of energy and enthusiasm, thus resulted to the success of all the events! We are all still talking about it until today. To all you guys. hope we could all do this again soon. Ryan said it right. this has truly been the best conference so far!"
Manager/Organizer Bo-Le (Firm-wide workshop)
"It is the opinion of our top management that Larry is the most effective of all facilitators who have been used by the hotel over the last 5 years. Perhaps his Asian heritage and his Western education have given him the right blend in understanding the needs of our team and in creating empathy with the individual."
GM, Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok
"Very enthusiastic and passionate facilitator who was able to capture and convince the whole audience of our top management to the need for culture and strategy change."
Assistant Governor, Bank of Thailand
"The one-on-one counseling really had an impact on me. Not only did I learn how my leadership style impacts other people, I received constructive advice about what I need to do to improve. You can teach an old dog new tricks!"
VP, Merrill Lynch Private Banking
"Leadership, coaching, and teambuilding are critical skills in this fast changing e-commerce business environment. Chao Group Limited has been instrumental in helping Nokia integrate people from different cultures to work effectively in high performing teams."

SVP Human Resources, Shell Oil
"Your involvement and constructive feedback were appreciated and contributed to a successful regional strategy meeting. Teamwork was enhanced and the output from the meeting had clear support from all involved."
President, Mead Johnson International
"There is no better way to understand the customer's feelings than be the customer yourself. Larry's workshop made everyone take "time out" from their busy schedules and experience what it is like to be a customer...I felt this workshop was very useful in getting the message across to management with regard to customer expectations and experience... Larry managed to keep the environment engaging for the entire session."
Customer Service Manager, True Corporation
"We got very positive feedback from our client, especially the CTO who stressed that we have exceeded his expectations! ...Also by bringing in the technical services people from abroad and you as the facilitator!"
Senior manager, Nokia/Globe Philippines
"I thought Larry was great! I don't think it's easy to organize a session like this between the lawyers and the support staff but he did a great job helping us lose our inhibitions and connect with each other."
