Noël Perry: superior information combined with an entertaining, dynamic speaking style.

Speaking Engagements

Noël Perry combines superior content with an entertaining and dynamic speaking style that has delighted as it informs audiences across the industry. He is best known for translating the often complex working of transportation into language easily understood by the full range of listeners, from truckers to loading dock workers to senior executives.

Even after more than 40 years of work, he retains a child-like fascination in all things transportation. His audiences can tell. The best part: his presentations are data-intense, light on lecture, heavy on graphs that lead the observer to solid conclusions. His listeners also have post-event access to all the visual material presented that they can use for further study and to share with colleagues.

Noël Perry:

In Demand. Interesting.

Entertaining. Animated.

Looks Different. Acts Different.

Thinks . . . Differently.

  • Noel Perry is one of the most talented and insightful transportation economists that I’ve had the privilege to work with during my time as a Market Manager at CSX Transportation. He is very insightful and will provide your organization with reliable guidance to address transportation concerns your company may be facing.
