Mark and I worked together closely for the last three years. Mark has outstanding insight into the lives of others. He has great compassion and is a good listener, but he also is able to go beyond these and provide a genuine therapeutic touch. He is a person of great integrity and that shows in all he does. He also is able to help people with very practical strategies. He is not afraid to challenge someone to be true to the directions they want to follow and and need to follow. He directly challenged me a number of months ago to stop talking about and start investigating something that I had mentioned several times as a possibility in my life. His challenge helped me to take the steps I needed and I am very glad now that I did. Mark is very bright and insightful. He is an excellent communicator at personal and public levels. He is creative and innovative. He is also trustworthy and safe to speak to. I am grateful that having journeyed together with Mark for these last years that I now consider him a close, wise, trusted friend.
I highly recommend Robb as a speaker, trainer, business mentor and coach. He is dynamic, engaging, highly relevant and personable. Robb was recognized as The Volunteer of the Year for 2014 due to his outstanding contribution to the youth of Oak Grove. He led the Speechmasters Seminar training and was able to help transform reluctant youth speakers into confident young men and women who were able to speak in a motivational, entertaining or engaging fashion and who also experienced a huge self-esteem boost in the process. Robb also has led leadership classes and his ability to challenge, motivate, confront and consistently pull out "greatness" a youth was not even aware he or she has is of huge benefit and impact. Robb has also led assemblies and is a gifted speaker able to tailor make his presentation to the audience at hand whether youth, adults, business leaders or parents. I have witnessed his ability in a variety of settings and always leave enriched and motivated from his input. Oak Grove will have the privilege of Robb conducting some staff trainings over this next year and we are excited about the transforamtive impact this will have on our organization. Thank you Robb for the difference you make in our mission, with our kids and for our future. At Oak Grove we believe that the work we do today builds a better tomorrow and Robb has been greatly beneficial in building that tomorrow through his impact and how he shares his gifts and talents. THANK YOU!!! Tammy Wilson, CEO Oak Grove Center
Dain Blanton is a class-act role model for students! His down-to-earth presentation for our school assembly included engaging students while speaking about the importance of education, and giving real-life examples for aiming for success. Dain also shared an awareness of students' resources as support to deal with life's difficulties and challenges. Dain was personable with students and staff! He was professional in fulfilling his contract and giving personal attention in responding to calls or questions. His dialogue in the assembly, his demeanor in relating to students, and his exciting visual experiences made an indelible impression on our students. Meeting Dain was an incredible experience for all of us!
A couple of years ago Michael Hingson, along with his guide dog Africa, spoke to the Fellowship Forum, an organization of active and retired professionals that meets weekly in Palo Alto, CA. to hear distinguished speakers talk on a wide variety of subjects. Michaels talk was one of the highlights of the year. His description of what he and his hero guide dog, Roselle, experienced on the September 11th Twin Towers attack was riveting. Michaels talk also included thought provoking and motivational life lessons, that one is never to old to hear. He has an engaging manner and sense of humor, that connects to his audience. The Fellowship Forum is considering asking Micheal to come back as a speaker. Phil M.
Our group really enjoyed having Roxann as our business networking speaker! Our members were engaged and inspired from the very practical & useful information. We have already invited her back again! I definitely recommend her.
I've had the pleasure of hearing Scott Greenberg speak on many occasions in both youth and corporate settings and he is truly a gifted speaker. Scott is relatable, funny and really moves his audiences to action. As a recent winner of the Best Customer Service Award for his Edible Arrangements franchise, Scott has proven that he is more than a motivational speaker, he is someone who practices what he preaches in his own business. I highly recommend Scott Greenberg if you are looking for someone to kick start your company to perform at its best.
I had the opportunity to hear Lynn speak at an event in Northern California. Lynn had a unique ability to connect with the audience in a unique personal way. The audience was fairly educated on the topic of preparing for when we are not here and Lynn brought powerful insights and actionable steps to each person in the room. I would recommend Lynn to any organization seeking an savvy, soulful speaker.
Wonderful Speaker ...I learned more from her than at any other time. I recommend her .I will attend again.
We're an event driven company that hosts 5 major events a year and I'm always on the look out for a new keynote speaker to bring in to inspire and captivate our members... Over the past 10 years I've easily hired/worked with hundreds of different speakers and have become accustomed to paying anywhere from $50-25k on the high end and $2k on the low end (just for a 1 hour keynote). I share this so you can appreciate that I've pretty much seen it all in this space and if you're considering hiring Patrick there's three things you need to know from our experience with him. He's going to captivate your audience, he's a class act, and a real master at his craft. To find this in one speaker is a true rarity, given the chance, I highly recommend you hire him and see for yourself.
Tina is a gifted empowerment coach who can quickly access a complex situation and apply sound solutions I have worked with Tina and am impressed with her attitude, directness and compassion
Randy spoke during a Safety Day designed to get our employees focused on safety following a long holiday break and to kick off the year. Communication with Randy before and during the event was excellent. He was on time and on point. Great message about the power of positive attitude. Different from other speakers that speak from the perspective of having been injured in the workplace. Solid speaker and I'd recommend talking to Randy to see how he can tailor a message for your team.
Victoria Ashford was our guest speaker. She was motivating and very engaging. Everyone thought she was very thought provoking and gave them ideas on how to better position themselves in their current job. Highly recommend her!
This man is an excellent and uplifting motivational speaker who draws from his own personal experiences and is full of knowledge and wisdom!
Great group of people and everyone is very down to earth.
Ms. Horner has been working in our college for 3-1/2 years and she strikes a wonderful balance between professionalism and sympathetic interaction. She has shown her strength as a leader and demonstrated her professionalism and creativity in many ways, including designing new courses for the community outreach program, and the creation and administration of our Public Speaking program. The teachers she has trained speak very highly of her training program, and the students in the Public Speaking program clearly show the benefits of her course. She is a valuable member of the Staff Professional Development Committee. We rely on her wisdom and experience to help guide the committee in the right direction.
I am a freelance actress, singer, radio/TV show host, voice-over artist, interviewer, art class model, theatre reviewer and public speaker.

Compassion, humor, patience and experience are the qualities that make me an excellent instructor. As a motivational speaker, I focus on developing self-esteem (especially for teens and women) and reinventing oneself after overcoming a life crisis.
