One of the best at ACHE Congress this year. Jake Poore needs to be a keynote, not a breakout. Thank you, Jake, for living your passion. Brilliant!

Former Chief Learning Officer – Blue Ridge Healthcare

There are storytellers who come in, and you think, oh, that’s a sad story, but they leave and you say, so what? Jake Poore has the ability to tell a story and get every person who hears it to realize the “so what”– how I apply that in my role no matter who I am.

We received fantastic feedback on Jake from our attendees who really embraced his thoughts and ideas on healthcare service delivery. beyond this though Jake was personable and professional and a pleasure to work with. Jake is a man who clearly practices what he preaches.

Syracuse Behavioral Healthcare

I had the opportunity to hear Jake speak at the ACHE conference a couple of weeks ago and I was very impressed by his approach. Without any exaggeration, I would say that he was the best speaker I heard in the three days that I was there. He was engaging and clearly an expert in the area of building customer loyalty as well as making the connection to improving the patients’ experience.

Darryl Ross, your presentation was extremely relevant to what our teams face everyday. Your energy and passion in your presentation won them all over! Conversation after conversation, they raved about how much they got out of this. “The best training class” was a phrase repeated often.

Kitty McKay
Development Director, Carson Tahoe Health Foundation

Jake’s presentation and focus get to the heart of the matter in any hospital or health system. And that is creating a sustainable culture that is always, not sometimes, but always patient focused. Jake’s presentation which is engaging, insightful and never boring, as well as the methods he uses for creating the patient focused sustainable culture is a must see experience.

Michael J. Krivich, FACHE, PCM
Principal and Founder, Michael J Group

Jake Poore is not your typical speaker. What sets him apart from other keynote speakers is the level of personal involvement and attention to detail he brings to each event. Prior to his engagement with us, Jake spent three hours touring our facility, listening to and learning from our hospitalists and patients. Unlike other speakers we’ve invited, Jake wanted to know more about our organization. Over the years, we’ve had lots of speakers come in and do their thing, but Jake was different. I didn’t expect him to be as involved as he was. Our event was focused on celebrating shared governance’s accomplishments. He was very complimentary of our facility; however, I was most impressed with his ability to skillfully balance our celebration with a few tips about some areas we might improve upon…that can be difficult to do, but Jake did it beautifully.
