Lou was the hit of our conference! Each year we bring in our construction crews to review safety and other programs. As our keynote speaker, Lou held their attention and made them laugh; a tough task with this group. Very pleased and will invite him back.

I would highly recommend Ray Howard for your next event. Whether its speaking or singing, Ray Howard is a true professional. Ray has sang at our events many times and was a favorite at our retreat as a motivational speaker and combing his music in between his message. Ray is an entertainer and professional that is well received by the audience. It is a pleasure and an honor to recommend Ray Howard. ~ Laurie Jepsen, Southern California Single+Passion Ministries

Brood 9 was highly recommended by a friend, and my personal experience has been no different. It seemed quite intimidating, it still kind of is, but the coaches and students are super friendly and helpful. Respect is actually a big thing here. Coach Marlene who leads woman's MuayThai has been extremely patient and motivating. It is all levels of fitness friendly, such which is awesome since I came in with little to no knowledge of martial arts. The gym has all the equipment needed for the variety of training that is offered. I can pick up gear, and supplements right on site. I can come to them with question or concerns. I can always count on receiving good conditioning and training, since their goal is to help student reach goals and be in great shape. I have been made part of the family right from the start, and I gladly would like to be just as supportive and encouraging to my class mates.

Several years ago I was at a cross road seeking my Devine purpose with no knowledge about that I was seeking. It seemed as though I was always at dead end jobs, unsuccessful relationships and uncertainties were forever near. I started praying for clarity and wisdom and Bradford Speaks was gracefully placed in my path! During a session I asked him how do I know what my calling was? His response was "Tammie what do you enjoy doing"? The only thing that instantly came to mind was caring for, motivating and inspiring people. He said well that's your calling and everything you need is already embedded in you!! Little did he know I was enrolled in Nursing school and about to leave that stagnated point of my life of not knowing! Since being enlightened, my life has been so carefree!! When I go to work its not working at all because I'm doing what I was crafted or should I say called to do. Effortlessly graced to care for, nurse, love, motivate and inspire happens with ease and the patients I care for know I enjoy what I do. After all I was called to it 😀 Bradford Speaks you are the greatest Life Coach and I'm blessed to have been guided into your path of wisdom and spiritual honesty!! If you're searching for direction, need a coach to give you direction to give birth to that thing that's overdue Bradford Speaks is the Life Coach for purpose fulfilled living!! Thanks Brad!!!

Victor is one of the most passionate man I know. If I’m ever feeling down or confused about my life he is one of the first guy I call to get advise. His knowledge about self motivation is amazing it feels like he always has an answer for any of my problems. If someone is ever feeling down and needs some motivation and advise call Victor.

Dr. Ty T.
Verified review

I came to Oliver at Verbal Ninja ahead of a big speech that had career and even life changing potential. I was speaking to a large group of fellow doctors, several of whom were what you might call “celebrity doctors.” Frankly, I wanted to upstage them. I myself have an acting background but have always had a lot of stage fright for public speaking. I worked with Oliver over the month leading up to the big event. I knew what I wanted to say, just not quite how to say it. He made my words sound like nothing I’ve ever heard before—yes, that good. Yet it still sounded like me…I felt comfortable and spontaneous. He sort of gave me the voice that I always thought I had inside, if that makes any sense. He also coached my delivery, voice, gestures, movement, eye contact, etc. etc. His tricks to conquer stage fright—especially the psychological aspect—are brilliant. The result? I think I killed it that night. Even my billionaire friend who came to see me said I spoke better than a lot of people he sees that speak on a regular basis. Even the owner of the company had this to say: “Thanks for everything, the event was great and we were very happy that you gave that speech, it was amazing! Not only the way you presented (like an actor) but also the content was very emotional, some tears were shed from Melissa.“ People came up to me afterwards and shared how I changed their view on aesthetics and really motivated them. All the “famous doctors” who spoke alongside me on the panel were super impressed as well. In short, Oliver came to me highly recommended. He leaves me even more highly recommended. If the stakes are high, he’s the guy.

My name is Abi Levine and I own L.O.V.E. Hypnotherapy. We host workshops once a month, teaching about personal growth and mindset. Every once in a while I invite a guest speaker in, but I am very picky about who speaks because I have spent years cultivating my community and providing value to them. When I first met Dan, I was immediately impressed with his knowledge base and his vast experience with different cultures. At the seminar, I watched as he connected with each participant at their level, no matter where they were in their journey. He has a lighthearted sense of humor, while being direct and to the point. He has a way of explaining complicated processes in the brain, and making them so easy to understand, my 10 year old would get it. I had so many rave reviews after the first workshop that I invited him back 12 more times! The change that was created in the workshops that Dan spoke at, was unparalleled to anything I've ever seen in a workshop before. He's one of a kind! I HIGHLY recommend him for your next event.

I was blown away with how talented and successful Margie as an artist and motivational speaker. Learning about her back ground in the music industry and how her pathway to get where she is today was quite intriguing and highly motivating. She has performed and worked with top people known in the industry and has been paid to perform and speak all over the world. She really has the it factor you see on TV. She is very personable, likeable and beautiful. These elements shine through in her music and speaking. I love everything about her as a musician and the kind person she is on and off stage. I loved how she said "success isn't followed after fame, fortune or status but is obtained through a thought of daily gratitude for the opportunities and blessings you have been given" I loved this quote and wrote it down to remember. Thank you again Margie for your inspiring words and music.

Wow! Just WOW! I have only amazing things to say about Ticia. She has been training me for over a year now and I have seen unbelievable results. From our very first session I explained my goals and concerns and Ticia not only listened she really heard what I was needing from a trainer. Ticia is incredibly motivating, inspirational, dedicated and most importantly such a kind individual. Every time I begin a session with Ticia I know for sure that I am going to work, sweat, push myself and feel great about myself! If you are interested in a trainer who not only hears and helps you achieve your goal, but someone who is fun, positive and inspiration then you NEED to give Ticia a call! I look forward to many many more hard and fun workouts that continue my fitness success that I have achieved with Ticia.
