Speaking Engagements


Ollie was one of the best—if not THE best speaker we’ve had address our group. From the time he joined us for the reception to some four hours later, he made everyone feel like they were long-time friends. A great story teller and a very gracious man.
— Jane Bonvillain, Construction Industry Round Table
Colonel North exceeded my expectations. His performance was outstanding. The presentation was two months ago, and I still hear—almost on a daily basis—from sales people about his appearance. I am working on how I can get him back for a return visit!
— Training Director, Biogen
Through the years, we have arranged to work with many national leaders to speak at our events, but Oliver North ranked #1 with our clients at our November event! The response we have received was the best ever. We’ve already booked him for a second event.

We were able to secure Col. Oliver North to come on Sept.11, 2015 for a fundraising Gala for the Bossier & Caddo Crime Stoppers in Bossier City & Shreveport, LA. With the significance of the Sept.11th attacks and the anniversary of those attacks, Col. North was the perfect choice. He delivered a powerful keynote address and we were able to raise more money for our organization than ever before. I would highly recommend Col. North for any fundraising effort you are embarking upon, he will not disappoint!
