Since starting her consultancy practice in 1980, Eileen McDargh has become known as a master facilitator, an award- winning author of six books, and an internationally recognized keynoter and executive coach.

She draws upon practical business know-how, life's experiences and years of consulting to major national and international organizations that have ranged from global pharmaceuticals to the US Armed Forces, from health care associations to religious institutions. Her programs are content rich, interactive, provocative and playful—even downright hilarious.

Executive Excellence magazine continually ranked her as one of the top 50 thought leaders in self-leadership development. Global Gurus International, a British-based provider of resources for leadership, communication and sales training, also named her as one of the World’s Top 30 Leadership Professionals following a global survey of 22,000 business professionals.

Eileen is a certified speaking professional (CSP) and her election into the CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame places her among the top 3% of speakers in the United States. She’s also listed as a recommended expert through the Sloan Work and Family Research Network now headquartered at University of PA.

Eileen truly wraps her arms around an audience and they love her for it. She recently was the glue that held a very large conference together. Her humor, her authenticity, and her homework made her a standout. By humor...she is amazingly great "on her feet"... she is so well read, and so able to think quickly, tickle the audience, and move the program along.

What was outstanding was the "homework" she did to know each of the speakers that she was introducing. It was not enough to have a bio... she delved deeper and was able to get the audience excited about each speaker and she therefore paved the way for some excellent presentations because she was able to share with the audience some of the more insightful and personal aspects of each presenter.

I was astounded at her ability to pull an audience in and "velcro" the various aspects of the conference together. She made it work, and can do the same for you!"
- Beverly Kaye, Founder, Career Systems International


"I just want you to know that you were A-W-E-S-O-M-E! You kept the audience attentive, upbeat, and engaged throughout. I was in awe of your mastery of the master of ceremonies role. You definitely get my vote for MVP of LEAD2016."
- Jim Kouzes, coauthor of the bestselling The Leadership Challenge, and the Dean’s Executive Fellow of Leadership, Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University.


Eileen was our keynote speaker at our internal Marketing & Communications Development Day. She took the time to really understand what we were looking for and spent a lot of time preparing with our host/moderator to ensure that the virtual session not only inspirational but also enjoyable because of their established rapport. She was also adaptable (just like her message) and was kind enough to deliver two sessions so that we covered all of our time zones. Eileen has amazing energy, a great sense of humour and has a very relevant and inspirational message to share."
