 Praise for our speakers

At the 2013 CRN holiday luncheon, guest speaker Lou Radja presented his 7 Keys to Successful Living. One of our members, David Olson, provided the following review. Thanks, David!

CRN held its annual holiday luncheon on December 10th at Ernesto’s Italian Restaurant in Beaverton. It was a great time shared with many people seeking to develop themselves and their careers. The CRN was once again fortunate to have Lou Radja (Speaker, Author, and Coach) share an informative and inspirational message. Lou has done that the past three years.

Lou truly is an exceptional presenter in terms of content and speaking skills. His life and message is rooted in his early years growing up in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, after which he graduated from PSU and now lives in the Portland area. I thought he was excellent, as was the information and inspiration that he shared.

Linked below is a summary of another presentation that Lou made. That summary includes another link that is to an audio presentation which includes that other presentation. That contains some similar information as was presented at the CRN holiday luncheon, along with some differences. This falls far short of hearing Lou in person as he is dynamic, but this is still very good.

I hope you appreciate what he shared as much as I do.

7 Keys to Successful Living, by Lou Radja:

  1. Gratitude, gratitude, gratitude!
  2. Be clear on what you want & why you want it!
  3. Don’t do it alone; leverage yourself!
  4. Congruency!
  5. Feel the fear & do it anyway!
  6. Never quit!
  7. Significance!
