“Your passion on and off the stage is infectious and the team you surround yourself with is wonderful to work with and extremely professional.”
I wanted to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for all that you did to make our Morgan Creek Investor Annual Meeting so successful! Your keynote presentation was truly remarkable and it far exceeded the expectations of all of us here at the Creek especially our CEO Mark Yusko! I have never seen him sit in the front of the room and take four pages of notes! Now that is something to be said! Although you had so many topics to choose from we are thrilled we chose the topic of “What Makes the Great Ones Great!” Also, positioning you as our closing speaker of the day before our welcome dinner on the Basketball Court of the Dean Dome in Chapel Hill worked our so perfectly and we appreciate you staying and networking with our investors! It was so nice that they had the opportunity to talk with you directly as many of them as also Philanthropists and your comments were extremely important to them.
Not only do you have a fantastic presentation style and great content and stories, but the way you captured the audience’s attention for that one full hour was extraordinary… you could have heard a pin drop it was so intense and everyone was paying such close attention! One of the best parts about your presentation was how you made a link to investors as to how this wasn’t just about sports and that you tied the investment business into the presentation. Morgan Creek is trying to pick the best money managers out there for our clients and you were able to bring it back around so that it made sense to our audience. We all need the skills to recognize What Makes the Great Ones Great as it affects us in every industry. Anyone reading this letter should realize that although Don uses Sports analogies this presentation is not at all about Sports!
You were also rated as one of the best speakers at the conference and I wanted to share some of the evaluation comments that came in from your presentation! These are direct comments from just a few of our investors!
- Wow. How amazing. Great addition to an investment program!
- Excellent/inspiring exceeded my expectations!

- Beyond words… fabulous!

Don, again we are so grateful to have found you and you have truly been an inspiration to me as well as to everyone at our firm and our investors. We can’t wait to have you back at another event and we will continue to spread the good word about you. Lastly, I would like to end this letter by mentioning that I have 20 years of experience booking speakers and running programming for various industries and you impressed me more than any one speaker ever has in my career. Your passion on and off the stage is infectious and the team you surround yourself with is wonderful to work with and extremely professional.
