“Lonnie Mayne’s powerful message strikes a chord, deeply resonating both professionally and personally. I’ve had the honor of hearing Lonnie’s Red Shoes Living address twice. Both times I’ve taken pause and really felt the impact. Even among a large crowd, you are instantly captured by his words and feel his message is tailored just for you. Lonnie’s five pillars promotes positive conversation, reevaluation, and transformation. I applaud Lonnie’s simple, yet powerful message that touches and energizes you to put your best self forward and show up every time."

“I’ve heard many motivational talks in my professional career but nothing as genuine and impactful as Lonnie Mayne’s “Red Shoes Living” talk. Lonnie is a master story teller and is able to capture the audience in a way that hits them to the core in a very moving and positive way. I’ve heard Lonnie speak about Red Shoes Living twice and both times I walked away feeling deeply inspired to ACT - to deliver better customer experiences, to better understand different perspectives, to be a better professional, and to be a better person. Lonnie is a phenomenal leader and a tremendously inspirational speaker. I’m a big fan of Lonnie and am a convert to his “Red Shoes Living” message.”

“No matter where I am in the world today when I see someone wearing red shoes I wonder if they have heard the story, or better yet Lonnie tell it. Red Shoe Living is a terrific way to navigate life. Our ability to connect at any time has made the world a smaller place and an argument could be made that it’s impossible to care about everyone’s story. Red Shoes reminds me, it’s not only possible but that I am responsible for the care and concern of ALL others. If you work in a service environment there is nothing more powerful than this message and I am grateful to have shared this at Express to drive an amazing associate and customer experience. Thank you Lonnie, my friend and colleague, for this wonderful view of the world and our place in it.”

"There are two ways you know you have a truly captivating speaker in the room: either everyone is roaring with laughter or it is so quiet, you could hear a pin drop. We experienced both when Lonnie Mayne spoke at our Annual Primary Care Conference in Salt Lake City in May 2017. In the 45 minutes that Lonnie addressed our audience of health care workers, aside from the laughter and tears being shed, the audience was captivated and the room was silent. Lonnie is warm, genuine, and has incredible stage presence. He doesn’t have to do a comedy routine or shock anyone, he just gently reminds us what it means to be a caring and empathetic human in a world where we feel increasingly divided from one another. I highly recommend that you consider Lonnie if you’re looking for an event speaker that can hold a diverse audience in the palm of his hand.”

Mark Ruhga

“We had the privilege of working with Lonnie Mayne as a keynote for our National General Manager Conference. Lonnie’s presentation was eloquent and engaging, as he seemingly found a way to emotionally connect with each attendee. His real-world examples resonate with everyone and reinforce the concepts remarkably well. The overall message of Red Shoes Living proved to be extremely valuable for our team, both professionally and personally.”

Laura Smith

“Lonnie was the perfect speaker for our group.  He was able to tailor his presentation to what would work best in our culture.  The five pillars are amazing because they are easy to remember, are the heart of how many of us aspire to live our lives every day and are also sustainable!  My team can’t stop talking about how they’re applying them! Lonnie has a lot of meaningful experience, a love for life and a passion for helping people continuously improve themselves.  If you’re looking for a team building activity that will energize and motivate your team to reach their full potential, Lonnie and #redshoesliving is for you!”

Maggie Connolly

“One of our long-time clients brought Lonnie into speak to 900+ attendees at their Annual Convention.  The FIRST team was so moved by the session we knew we had to share what we learned and asked Lonnie to come speak to our employees at our winter off-site meeting.  After his presentation our CEO noted there was “not a dry eye in the house” – everyone was so moved by his experiences and the idea of putting ourselves in others’ shoes.  We see every day how we deepen our client relationships by taking time to listen to their needs.  One of our Producers still wears his red Converse to shows to remind him to go the extra mile every day.”

—Maggie Connolly, VP Client Services, FIRST

Sue Kong

“NHS Elect invited Lonnie to our Annual Conference two years ago and colleagues are still talking about his presentation on Red Shoes. Lonnie embodies the core values of emotional connection, empathy and humbleness with people regardless ‎they are your customers or colleagues or strangers. His messages are universal, his challenge to us to be kinder and do good couldn’t be closer to our health care service values and his personal impact on the day was unforgettable. You can certainly add the NHS to your fanbase!”

—Sue Kong, Director, NHS Elect

Maz Iqbal

“I have known and interacted with Lonnie for five or so years. From the very first time that I spoke with Lonnie I got that he is unique: an executive who reached the top as president of InMoment, yet humble; smart yet embodying dignity and human warmth. Coming across Lonnie and interacting with him occurs as one of the greatest privileges of my existence. If you are up for living an exceptional life (a Red Shoes life), or up for creating an exceptional team/culture/organisation, then invite Lonnie to speak with you/your organisation. And listen—listen with your head, your heart, and that which lies even deeper. Do that and your life will never be the same again.”
