Neil Dempster's Cited References

Did you know that 87% of all speakers make up the statistics they reference during their speeches?

Actually, what you just read is not true—we fabricated that statistic to demonstrate how easy it is to provide believable, potentially-misleading information. And although the statistic was invented to make a point, the sad truth is many people provide facts and figures they claim are valid—even though there is no solid research or statistically significant data to back up their claim. Just because it sounds believable does not make it the truth!

Neil Dempster occasionally cites statistics and/or research studies during his keynote speeches and training programs. Listed below are the references to back up his data. Note: Not every reference listed is used during every speech or training program.
