What Clients Say?
After having the opportunity to hear Darci Lang speak once regarding “Focusing on the 90%”; I knew I had to bring into our two long-term care homes to re-energize our staff. Healthcare, and long-term care specifically, are tough jobs and we all needed to be taught/reminded how to focus on the best parts. Darci delivered in spades, creating a fun, informative but teaching opportunity about the choices we make. A testament to how effectively the message was delivered is that our buildings are still buzzing with snippets from Darci’s teachings.
To say Darci is the ‘real deal’; is an understatement. You only have to spend a few moments with her to see that she ‘walks her talk’. On behalf of our Homes and communities, I can’t thank Darci enough for motivating us to focus on the 90%.
Darci was the key note speaker at our staff development day. She delivered an upbeat, energizing message of "Focus on the 90%" tied directly too many of the changes we are experiencing at work and in our lives. She reminded us we have a choice in how we live our lives and how we work with others.
Our staff had a lot of fun, thoroughly enjoyed Darci's sense of humour and stories from her life experience. It was truly an uplifting day for our Credit Union.
Darci’s message is rooted in good, age-old advice of empathy, understanding and self-care. Her message is uplifting and easy to apply to individual lives, whether that be with clients or colleagues at work, or with personal relationships in life and at home. It’s hard to argue with or dismiss her enthusiasm to find out what really makes people happy. It’s a great reminder to focus on what’s important and to change how you approach different circumstances in life. Thank you for encouraging, engaging and uplifting our spirits!
Darci spoke at our Staff Gathering as a kick-off to our 2018 Academic Year. Her message was on point and a great reminder about not only what we do at Assiniboine Community College, but why we do it. Our faculty and staff are committed to giving students an exceptional learning experience and sometimes it’s easy to forget that when we get busy and feeling stressed. Since her session I’ve heard people say, “Focus on the 90%”. We appreciated her authentic, motivating, and relatable message.
Darci is amazing! I first saw her speak at Greatness In Leadership. I knew I had to bring her back to speak to our organization. And she didn’t disappoint. Before presenting she really got to know who we are and the presentation was tailored towards our manufacturing business. It’s not the first time we’ve brought in a speaker for our male dominated staff. I’ve never seen the guys so engaged and all the feedback has been positive. Darci spoke for an hour and a half and it felt like 10 minutes. Darci loves what she does and I guarantee she will boost positivity in your workplace. I highly recommend Darci to speak to your staff.
Thank you Darci – everyone was very impressed and happy with your presentation and great message. It was just what the College needed as we head into the busy Fall semester and finish the strategic planning process. Much appreciated!
Darci Lang is an outstanding speaker. She really knows how to give the audience energy and she does a great job of having the audience participate throughout the session. Darci really took the time to get to know our organization and our employees so she could tailor her presentation to our group. She spent half a day with our management team with a customized presentation for leaders. Her willingness to get to know the organization and her interest in doing so is exceptional. Darci has an amazing energy, a great sense of humor, and has a very relevant and inspirational message.
Darci is an excellent speaker and provided some great tools for our staff as they face some big challenges! It was so beneficial how she made insightful inquiries ahead of time so she could have knowledge of the staff, our organization, positives and negatives, and upcoming challenges so she could target her program to our needs. She is so personable and down to earth that everyone in the room related easily to her. She added humour plus her own personal, sometimes painful, stories, made it very real and all who listened could easily relate. Her “Focus On The 90%” is an essential concept in today’s world where mental health and wellness needs are expanding. It is an approach that every person can utilize. I would recommend her presentation to any group!
I had lots of great comments the last couple days about the event with your talk being the most enjoyable. I truly believe it hit home for many there.J
“Darci Lang message was one that everyone should hear. She was rated very high in the feedback we received from the attendees at our “Invest in Your Business” conference and our “Focus of the 90%” evening session. She is one of the best keynote speakers I have heard. If you have the chance to hear Darci – go, don’t hesitate, you won’t be sorry!”
I just can’t say enough about the positive comments I am hearing from our group! This is no surprise to me of course but wanted to share how truly touched they were. I heard how much they loved your easy humour in getting the points across. Very useful, memorable tactics.
I wanted to say thank you again for a great presentation - everyone was blown away! you truly inspire me to try and be better in both my professional and personal life.
Darci re-energized our monthly meeting with her motivational and achievable message.
Darci’s “Focus on the 90%” presentation resonated well with the audience.

Connie said that everyone really enjoyed Darci’s Focus on the 90% presentation. Some of the comments from the attendees are “Darci Lang was absolutely awesome. What an amazing speaker!” And Darci’s talk was absolutely amazing!”
I was looking for a motivational speaker and had heard great things about Darci Lang so we brought her in to present to our Educational Assistants and Youth Workers to Focus on the 90%.
I couldn’t be happier with her presentation as she really connected with the audience in an easy and very interactive manner. Her pre-work in getting to know our organization and what we wanted was extremely thorough. She even surveyed the participants ahead of time so she could tailor her presentation to meet their needs. Our group left very motivated to make improvements in both their work and private lives.
I would highly recommend Darci as a speaker to any organization that wants to motivate and challenge their employees to look in the mirror to make positive changes in their lives.
You are an inspiration with your intuition, courage, honesty and loving yet challenging approach to focus on the 90%! I believe everyone needs to hear your message.
We had Darci present at our Manager’s meeting in February. We wanted a motivational speaker who understood our business, our customers and our employee’s challenges.Darci took the time to get to know our company and customize her program around our business. Her attention to detail and ability to deliver her program around our specific needs resulted in over 100 Manager’s responding with overwhelming positive feedback. Darci was able to provide the tools and awareness to stay focused on the power of embracing a 90% positive attitude every day and leave behind the 10% negative.Engaging, energetic , an excellent Motivational Speaker!
The delegates at the Ontario East Municipal Conference rated Darci’s key note presentation as excellent or very good. Comments included “Darci provided the delegates with some great ideas which can be implement in our organizations” and “One of the best keynotes I’ve ever seen. Exactly the message I needed to hear. Darci’s message was greatly appreciated.”
It was a pleasure and a privilege to have you join us at our Pharmacy Technician Conference. The attendees rated you the best speaker at the conference. You delivered a very encouraging message with warmth and with lots of fun. You are irrepressibly upbeat and inspiring women of our generation. I am very happy to have cross paths with you at a time when our profession was in need of a boost on how to better ‘team build’ by creating positive work relationships and how to become the uplifting influence to those around you.
We have had the pleasure of Darci addressing our staff on various occasions. Darci brings energy, passion and true life experience into her sessions, creating a fun, educational and engaging atmosphere. She caters her presentation to the company she is speaking to, making it a unique experience. The staff were truly impacted by her presentation, and we even have 90-10 discussions at work! Darcy is truly a pleasure to work with and I would definitely recommend her without hesitation
On behalf of everyone in property management, thank you for a most inspiring afternoon. The feedback from everyone I have spoken to yesterday and today has been wonderful, they just wish it could have been longer. You are an amazing and genuine person Darci and I would love the opportunity to hear you again.
Your message was powerful and impactful. Every single person I have spoken to about your message was motivated and moved by something you said. I look forward to seeing the outcomes from choosing to see our lives through the lens of the 90%.
Thank you Darci for your engaging and empowering presentation at our recent employee professional development day. Your real world experiences and perspectives kept us all captivated and motivated to concentrate on the 90%!
Thank you for coming and speaking at our event. Everyone that I talked to loved your presentation, and were talking about it well after you were done. My hopes are that we all make some changes in our life to focus on the 90.
Darci’s talk was the highlight of the Canadian Nuclear Industry Leadership Program, and don’t just take my word for it, that’s what the participants said (delegates from Bruce Power, CNSC, OPG, Cameco, etc.) and it’s why we had her back for the second year. In an industry where we sometimes focus to much on technical knowledge, Darci’s personal development and leadership message was exactly what we needed. Having Darci on your program means you’ll have an event that will be talked about and never forgotten.
Your session was the highlight for everyone at our PD Day. It is life changing for many, including me. Your energy and passion are contagious! Thank you so much!
You were everything I’d hoped you’d be. Thank you for the best experience. The office has been buzzing with “90 percent thoughts”. You definitely left a strong impression! You are impressive!
I have already received so many positive responses! Thank you for making our special staff day an opportunity for real bonding between staff and management. You have such a glowing personality that it was easy for everyone to draw you and your message into their hearts.
I truly believe your positive energy, sense of humour and ability to relate to the group you were speaking to, motivated them as they returned to work.
From the beginning stages of planning, to the personalization of her message, to her presentation at our Annual General Meeting – working with Darci and her team was an absolute pleasure. I would highly recommend Darci and look forward to working with her in the future.
Darci kept our staff team of 130 engaged and reminded all of us of how critical it is to Focus on the 90% in our day to day lives.
Darci was able to quickly gauge our team members and adapt when needed. Her words were inspiring and authentic; everyone in attendance was able to relate to her hardships and accomplishments. There were many moments of silence, laughter and tears; we have never seen our team members more connected.
Darci Lang was the highlight of our annual operations conference; she personalized her message to appeal to a diverse audience that included field technicians and head office employees. Darci’s energetic presentation was uplifting and reminded us to focus on the positive – that is, the 90%.
Darci came to the community of Sault Ste. Marie, which has been hard hit by economic challenges, bringing with her message of Focusing on the 90% has been able to plant the seeds for a future change in direction and realization of how powerful a positive attitude can change your life, lives of others and even a community.
Lloydminster Public School Division hosted Darci for multiple PD days. She worked closely with our team to tailor her presentation to our context, ensuring the needs of our organization were met. Her message if Focus in the 90% resonated well with all hip heard her speak. Her approachability, straightforwardness, and professionalism are second to none. I heard from a many in attendance that they were inspired, motivated to make change and appreciative of how blessed they are.
It is without reservation That I would recommend Darci to work with your organization. Her message of Focus in the 90% vs. the 10% is appropriate for any audience. People leave Darci’s presentation not only better employees, but better people.
We so enjoyed having you as our kickoff speaker – I’ve been doing this for 15 years with CCEC and I can’t recall another speaker who was as entertaining and inspirational as you were. It’s a rare speaker that can talk for 100 minutes and leave the stage with the audience still wanting more!
Everyone thought that you were truly amazing, it really made a lot of people open their eyes and realize what a great place we work at!!
- Darci Lang was absolutely awesome. What an amazing speaker!
- The opening speaker and keynote speakers were absolutely fantastic!
- Darci's talk was amazing!
Darci Lang is an engaging, entertaining and powerful speaker whose message about ‘Focusing on the 90%’ is clear, insightful, sobering, and most of all, important. She is sincere, articulate, and uses humour as a velvet glove to drive her powerful message home.
We had Darci as our keynote for our first Brand Development Day. Darci and her team are very accommodating and easy to work with. Darci’s message perfectly aligned with our Brand messaging. Two weeks has past and our team is still bringing up the key points from Darci’s presentation. I would strongly recommend Darci to you and your team!” Greg also said “I’m hearing a lot of conversations still, so your message stuck.
Many approached me thanking for inviting Darci and shared that this short session changed the way they look at their profession and personal lives. Darci’s energy is contagious!
Your ability to inspire change within our group, through the concept of "Focusing on the positive 90%" in their careers and everyday lives opposed to the negative 10%, was both creative and effective.
Working with Darci and her team was so easy and she captured our needs precisely with our team through careful preparation and understanding of our goals as a team. She was so engaging that our group continued to discuss and use the tools and learning long after her session with us.
I have had the pleasure of hearing Darci Lang on several occasions over the past eight years. Darci has always been a source of inspiration and motivation for me and countless others. Darci has a simple message that WILL change the way you see things and appreciate life. Focusing on her 90% theory has made my life that much better. I have thanked her personally and would like to take this opportunity to thank her publicly!
Some quotes from the Redhead Equipment audience who sat in on Darci’s Focus on the 90% presentation include "I think she was awesome. It was a great down to earth battery recharge.” “This is the first speaker that I was totally engaged in from the first word to the last word. She was by far the best one I have ever listened to.” "Darci was an excellent speaker, and most people could identify with her in some fashion. Her speech was high energy and proper duration. Her message was on point. And connected with me.”
Darci is an awesome speaker – her message resounded with our employees, inspiring them and in some cases moving them to tears! Your message, caring demeanor and thoughtfulness are unmatched! Thank you for making this our best staff conference yet!
Darci's powerful message was very well-received by our group. In a satisfaction survey completed by about 200 of our guests, Darci's rating was 97%! Darci relates very well to the audience and I have heard nothing but amazing feedback!
I knew from seeing Darci previously that her message would resonate with my entire employee group. The reactions were so positive, I have witnessed a turnaround in the attitudes from a couple of my young guys.
It was a pleasure to meet with Darci Lang and have her speak at our event. She is truly an amazing individual and very inspiring/empowering. All feedback was AMAZING. I’m still getting text messages from people on how fantastic she was. Thank you so much. Darci.
If you are considering hiring Darci Lang, then stop dragging your feet and book her now. At our recent employee retreat we were more than blown away with her workshop ‘Focus on the 90%’. Our entire team took away ideas that are easily actionable, and no doubt will improve morale, fun, and communication in the workplace. These messages, more importantly, were meant just as much for each employee’s home life. We asked for a motivational speaker who could focus on work life balance, and Darci Lang delivered above and beyond our expectations!
Our school division of over 700 had the extreme pleasure to share in Darci’s message of focusing on the 90%. Darci’s down-to earth manner, uplifting personality and inspiring spirit was a breath of fresh air. Her message was very well received and allowed us to see the hope and possibility in our own life journeys, inspiring us to search for joy in the journey. Darci, you have an amazing gift and you used it to connect with us on a powerful level which left us energized, motivated and feeling like we had just spent time in the presence of a wonderful friend. You were an absolute joy to work with and it is my hope that our paths will cross again. Thank you for contributing greatly to the success of our event.
Darci, to say that your presentation was a HUGE hit with our 900+ staff at our Opening Day on August 31, 2015 is a massive understatement. Many have said that you were the BEST Opening Day speaker we’ve ever had. Others have literally thanked me for bringing you in. You have such an incredible gift for connecting with people and conveying some challenging principles in a way that people can relate to and accept. Our staff laughed, pondered and even cried – and literally talked about your presentation for days afterward. Your message of “Focusing on the positive 90%” was 100% on track with Foothills School Division’s mission statement of “Exploring… Developing… and Celebrating the unique gifts and abilities of EVERY student”. It was obvious that you’d done your homework by your understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing employees in Education. Thank you for the major contribution you made to the success of our event. People headed on to their schools feeling inspired and energized. And it’s clear that you and your staff walk the talk – you were all such a pleasure to work with. I hope that our paths may cross again in the future.
With the trucking industry tending to be predominately male occupied, a little rough and tough with straight shooting, no nonsense type individuals in it, I was a little concerned how Darci would fair and how effective she could be? Darci, not only commanded the respect of all of our employees, (because of doing her homework on them weeks earlier) but really connected with them with her humour and passion.
The results to our company have been tangible and weeks later, I still freely hear references and repeats of Darci’s quotes by our employees. The investment made to bring her in, was one of the best we’ve made all year.
The feedback has been OUTSTANDING!! Thank you so much - you were so good - motivational, inspiring, and yet totally genuine! I got texts throughout the weekend, saying how awesome the event was and that it provided a lot of food for thought. That's what I was looking for...food for thought.
Just wanted to another huge Thank You for speaking at our Conference the end of November! You were a huge hit with the group! You made me look good with my choice of speakers.
Darci had made a definite impact on myself, my parents, friends and community. She is not only a motivational speaker, she’s a great person. Darci has been a great support to us and I can’t thank her enough. Her passion, positive spirit and Focus on the 90% message transpired throughout our community and reminds us to stay positive and move forward.
Our Darci Lang Ficus on the 90% event was exceptional. Our small town farming community engaged Darci after hearing her at another event. Her presentation was humorous, educational, and enjoyable. Nothing but positive feedback from the 18-90 years young. I will attend a Darci Lang event whenever possible. Highly recommended.
Darci did a fantastic job as the keynote at our 4th Annual Inspiring Women Conference.
Our business is Agriculture. I find it rare and refreshing to find a person like Darci, who not only understands our Ag world, but, more importantly understands our rural way of life. Because of her farm roots, she is able to most effectively deliver a meaningful and light hearted message that is extremely well received by Farm related folks.
When we were going through our meeting evaluations: we asked the attendees to provide feedback on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being excellent. You received quite a few “10” . I had to laugh! But to that point you did an over the top job at reading the assembly, and delivering a relevant, inspiring, and totally positive message. Thank You.
I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Planning Committee, to formally thank you for presenting at the 2014 Regional Nursing Workshop. Ninety-seven percent (97 %) of those who responded to the evaluation rated your presentation as excellent or good. In addition, the following comments were noted on the evaluation form.
• Outstanding! What a great way to end the conference! Very practical and impactful.
• This was my favorite session. Truly explored why I love my job. Thank you.
• Very motivating! Thank you.
• Wonderful, insightful – truth in it to take home and share.
• Perfect ending! We needed that!
Thank you once again for contributing to the success of the Regional Nursing Workshop.
Our entire organization shared in Darci’s Focus on the 90% message. It was a well timed and elegantly delivered presentation that resonates in our employees work spaces and personal lives. While our employees benefited directly from Darci’s message, our students will also be beneficiaries of her authentic and inspiring messages.
Thank you very much - you were a delight to work with and I have heard nothing but positive feedback regarding your closing keynote. Thank you for your flexibility with the program - it really helped us ensure as many people as possible could benefit from your presentation.
Darci you were a great success at our annual conference. As an industry we are often confronted with negativity, criticism, and fear. As women working in this industry, it can sometimes feel like an uphill battle even though we love what we do. You message of focusing on the 90% spoke to our hearts and our minds. It reminded us how much we have in our lives that is good, and that it is our duty to let the 10% go. Your humour and willingness to engage with the audience was infectious, and you left us with a gift that we can bring to every person we meet, and every interaction we have. Thank you.
I’ve had the pleasure to hear Darci speak twice. After hearing her the first time, I booked her to speak at The Brandon Clinic. Darci is a dynamic speaker and is wonderful at interacting with her audience. She is easy to relate to, compassionate, humorous, and extremely motivating. Our clinic was abuzz with her 90% message.
I have had the privilege of hearing Darci speak on two occasions, the first time six years ago and then recently. Her message of focusing on the 90% positive has stayed with me over the past six years and really made a difference in how I view my work and personal life. She has the ability to connect to everyone in the room in a humorous, entertaining, and in a down-to-earth way so that people can take her message and apply it to their own personal situation. It is a universal message that applies to all and well worth the time and effort to attend.
Darci’s message is one that relates to everyone and one we should focus more on – the 90%. She is down-to-earth, motivating, and very inspiring. The attendees gave excellent feedback on Darci’s presentation and many stayed to speak more in-depth with her after the presentation. Darci and her staff were very accommodating and excellent to work with. I would recommend Darci as a speaker any day. Thank you!
It’s fun working with Darci. She is one very motivating speaker (and big haired).
We have received outstanding feedback from our recent investor event that Darci spoke at. Her ability to share her own life experiences in a funny and uplifting manner left a huge impression with all of our clients. Darci and her staff were excellent to work with as she took the time to research our needs and who her audience was. I know we will have Darci work with us in the future.
I can't begin to tell you how much we all enjoyed your presentation at our Annual Staff meeting. Your session was inspiring, motivating, humbling, and engaging. It was exactly what we needed (whether we knew it or not) in order to provide us with a mindset "reset" and to Focus on the 90%. You are a magnificent speaker! Thank you again and again.
I have never before worked with a presenter who arrived early, to familiarize themselves with the crowd, and who stayed until the last chair was put away, all the while connecting with the people in attendance. Wow!
The fact that members of the audience shared their personal thoughts (when you asked for their stories) tells me how captivated you kept them with your simple, yet profound message. I heard "renewed hope" from two members of the community as they left with either an affirmation that they are on the right track or a belief that something can be done about the environment that they are currently working in. These are but two examples of a room full of reactions.
Darci, words cannot express how grateful I am for your time and the message you left us. It was the perfect start to a new school year. I hope our paths cross again.
Darci is an excellent motivational speaker, combining humour with her message on focusing on the 90% with her real-life stories and examples. Darci provided everyone with tools on how to look at things in a more positive light, both at work and in their personal life.p>
Feedback from staff attending has all been very positive, it was a great uplifting presentation, and I would highly recommend staff to attend. We even had some staff from the morning session go back and tell other staff to attend in the afternoon, definitely a sign of how good it was.
Thanks so much Darci for the Focus on the 90% presentation. Many of the 1100 delegates in attendance had heard you speak at other events but you did your homework and reconnected with them. You truly are the easiest and most accommodating speaker I have dealt with and I thank you for that.
Just a quick note to say thanks again! We've had really positive feedback from all our staff on the events we held. Your presentation and message was perfect. I've had a number of staff come up to me and say, "We needed that - thanks!" You're a rock star!!!
Darci Lang spoke at our annual provincial conference with her 'Focus on the 90%' presentation. She is genuine, gifted, and humorous. She has amazing energy, and great messages for work and for life, that she teaches us through her own life experiences. Her keynote was the highlight at our event. "Thank you Darci, for reminding us that we all have a choice how we view our lives.
Darci is absolutely captivating, funny, and inspiring! She is not like other motivational speakers I have heard! Her message hits home and I am able to apply it to my daily life. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to listen to Darci's message of focusing on the 90%! Thank you Darci!
Our group of nurses were fortunate enough to spend a morning with Darci but it could have easily been the entire day! She engaged us with her humour, her storytelling, and her positive outlook. She made us look in the mirror - the only person you can change is yourself. A simple but dynamic message. I personally take this message with me everywhere I go - to work, the grocery store, with my kids, even driving home in rush hour. I focus on the 90% and I remind myself that somewhere, some place, someone is having a worse day than I am. I am thankful and grateful for all the blessings in my life and there are many!
I have worked with Darci on two large conferences; she was our key speaker and was a huge hit with the audience. I can share many of their comments from the evaluations, if you are interested. She received a rating of 4.91 out of 5.
Darci is an excellent motivational speaker. I have heard her speak numerous times and have always taken back personal messages that have improved my daily life. During one of the Federal Council meetings, the conference was described as attending the Oprah show!
She was also very easy to work with, which is a gift when organizing large events.
We were so pleased to have Darci as one of the speakers at our Forums this year. The producers attending Forums consistently rated her as one of the top speakers they had heard. We were amazed at how well Darci related to the wide variety of people attending these events across the country. Darci was definitely a highlight of the Forums!
