"The Concours Group uses only the
foremost thinkers of the world, including Peter Drucker, Stephen
Covey, Lester Thurow, and Alvin Toffler. Taelen Thomas's treatment
of historical figures gets equal (or higher) ratings from our clients.
Our clients are disappointed if they don't see Taelen at each meeting."
Dr. Ron Christman, CEO,
The Concours Group

"Spending an evening with Taelen
Thomas ... an audience will be enlightened and inspired, its curiosity
prodded, its collective mind expanded."
Joan Swartz Paonessa
Taelen's presentations of John Steinbeck,
Jack London, Stanley Ketchel and Mark Twain are excellent for evening
shows, luncheons, and conferences. And he can enliven your cocktail
or theme party as a special guest or host in character as Jack London,
John Steinbeck, Robert Louis Stevenson, Jim Thorpe, Ogden Nash,
Mark Twain, Daniel Boone, Teddy Roosevelt, Robert Burns, Leonardo
da Vinci, O. Henry, Ambrose Bierce, or "Black Bart the Po8."
Taelen's programs are adjusted in length and format to fit particular
needs. Each one is a work of art that his audiences never forget
.An unusual and effective format has been developed for meeting
break performances. Taelen breaks his show into several segments,
each one being only a few minutes long, reminiscent of the cliffhangers
in the movies of the 1920s. The segments are performed over the
course of the meeting, and the captive audience is often literally
on the edges of their chairs, refreshed and invigorated.
