I have enjoyed working with Phil Kirk over the past seventeen years – both in his capacity as CEO of NCCBI and Chairman of the State Board of Education. He is a listener and an advocate for children, for business, and for North Carolina. I have had many opportunities to hear him speak. He is knowledgeable of government and politics, and can communicate powerful messages using a lot of humor mixed with good old fashioned common sense.

As the host and emcee of The Business Leaders’ Breakfast, I have introduced and listened to more than 50 speakers. Phil Kirk not only drew the largest audience of the program’s history, he is also the most captivating, interesting and entertaining speaker we have ever had. His combination of knowledge, wit and delivery makes him an event organizer’s dream.

Dan DaviesPublisher | Business Leader magazine

I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard or felt so engaged by a speaker as when in your presence.  You have such a wonderful, down-to-earth approach that allows you to connect with an entire audience as if you were sitting there talking with them personally.  It truly is a gift.  You are a teacher, advisor, coach, and one-man comedy act rolled into one.  As a former Chamber of Commerce Executive, I appreciated your leadership and championship of the Chambers, and now, as an author and speaker, myself, I get to learn from a real pro.  Thanks for all you do to uplift others.

Mary KurekSpeaker and Author | "Who’s Hiding in Your Address Book."

A man of steadfast principle and integrity throughout his career, Phil Kirk not only has done an exceptional job of representing North Carolina’s business and education interests before key decision-makers, but he also has helped broaden the national knowledge base through his contributions to professional societies, such as the Council of State Manufacturers Association and the Council of State Chambers. A true statesman and diplomat, Phil’s experiences in advocacy and public policy further distinguishes him as a resource of incalculable depth. His wisdom, energy, and resolve make him a model for getting good things done right.”
