Junior is in this for others - a very giving trainer and passionate individual. I reached out to 100 of the best fitness leaders in San Diego, and was one of the first to volunteer his time to go into areas of San Diego where youth need healthy role models, and teach a workout at our local Boys&Girls Clubs - he's that kind of guy even when nobody knows! He's giving, hardworking, and has great energy. Sheri - run coach, lululemon ambassador, and advocate for the SD fitness community.
Throughout my career public speaking has been a task that has loomed over me like a dark cloud, often causing me physical distress. I have always watched politicians, reporters, and others speak and have envied the way they are so natural in their communication. It is a skill I have always wanted to improve upon both to enhance my career but mainly to eliminate this unnecessary source of anxiety and distress. I was recently asked to give a talk at my former graduate schools yearly career day. I agreed immediately, of course, and was so honored that I would be considered for this role. Shortly after I began to panic. After weeks of sleepless nights I decided that instead of doing what I always do and worrying about it until it is over, I would take this opportunity to seek out a public speaking coach. I was introduced to Andre Carter on a Thumbtack request I sent out. I had a very short timeline and was afraid it would limit my chances of hiring anyone. I was also unsure about how a Skype based coaching would work. These concerns were all quickly alleviated. Andre responded to my request within 24 hours and gave me an overview of his services. He first wanted to talk to me on the phone, assess my goals, and give me a detailed training plan and quote. He even gave me a few tips on our first call. After my initial conversation with Andre I was calmer than I had been in months. I trusted him completely to take me a level where I was confident about this speech. I immediately accepted his proposal and we got right to business. After our initial session I volunteered to practice in front of my family. I dont who was more surprised! After just that first lesson I experienced something I have never felt before, actual excitement about giving a speech! Having just completed our third and final session, I am intentionally writing this review two days before my actual speech. I am so confident in what Andre has taught me that I dont even need to wait to see how it goes, I know I am going to blow everyone away. To say that I highly recommend Andre Carter for his speaker coaching skills does not even do him justice. If you have ever even considered improving your communications skills, hiring Andre is the best investment you could ever make towards your future. Thank you, Andre! I look forward to working with you again! Katie Marshell

Patrick truly wants to inspire and encourage others to seek and reach their true potential whether it is in their work or daily lives. He is an engaging speaker that keeps you on the edge of your seat to hear and see what will come next. Patrick is one of the most sincere individuals I have ever met. His work is to inspire others, yet he has this amazing way of finding the good and inspiration from those around him; he is like a sponge eager to learn something new and interesting everyday regardless of where he is or who is with. I have only had the pleasure of having him on the campus where I work two times, yet, I consider Patrick a friend... a friend that i am happy to have. He is the real deal! I hope he never retires from being a motivational speaker; he has an outstanding outlook on life and great messages to share. BBeasley Georgia

It was an eye opener for the teenagers that were present as well as the adults. I highly recommend Ennis come to your class or event as a speaker for your teens.

At an event I put on, I had 7 guest speakers take the stage. Winston was by far the most entertaining of them all. He brought his guitar up on stage and he invented a song on the spot. He was totally different, totally unique and gave some great value to our summit. He would be a phenomenal choice to add a spark and level of entertainment to any event. Definitely recommended.

Jaquel Pitts spoke at our annual conference. His speech was amazing. He was in foster care for 17 years.

"This was the best evening I've experienced and by far, you're the best speaker we have had at our meeting. You were knowledgeable and organized in the presentation, but so warm and genuine in the delivery of your message it made all the difference. Your program has something for everyone and I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to hear you and meet you. I always felt I had some of the tools you describe in SMART but was blown-away by what I've been missing; by how you described it and how you actually do it! I came away with "I get it". So many other motivational programs I've heard or purchased don't really describe what they do themselves, just what we should do. I've gone home with tapes and journals and said the next day, "huh?". You stand apart in every aspect of what you do." - Patt Davis "I have been going to the Wow meetings for about two years now. Of all the speakers we have had, you were by far the best. I have had the same thoughts that you talked about and felt. Thank you for putting it a book so I can really have the 5 step SMART plan in front of me. The way your book is laid out is just great. Can't wait to start reading it. I wish more women knew about how they can change the way they think and feel. Now you have to write one for men so we can all change together." - Karen Ellinwood "I have heard a lot of speakers and can say that you are the best and the most inspiring one that I have ever heard. You sure are amazing. Thank you so much." - Laurie "I just wanted to say "thank you" for the delightful talk you gave at our BLO luncheon today, which many of our members called the best program ever. I have had so many positive comments that I can't even begin to count them! We were all inspired and our spirits were renewed and revived." - Sheri Benton
As a Motivational & Inspirational Speaker for the last 20 years, I've been helping individuals & groups move their lives forward, build their businesses, improve their health & well-being, as well as consciously co-create more mindful relationships, for more fulfilling lives, with both passion & purpose. Events at my location will accommodate up to 75 people, and includes socializing area, conference room, theater, and event kitchen/bar area. With offices on both coasts, I can travel throughout the USA, Australia, & Western Europe, for speaking engagements and events. This Winter, I'm based in California, USA. Sessions by phone or in-person are available by appointment. With so many services to help you and your team succeed, you can be sure we have the solutions you need. Whether your agenda requires traditional or social media marketing strategies or career coaching to find or change jobs, or you want a better work-life balance, or leadership development, I can get you where you want to be. And if you need public speaking lessons, I can help you connect with your audience, perfect your verbal delivery, and body language, as well as help you write or edit your speeches. The question to ask is, are you "coachable"? Are you ready for transformation? The next step might be to focus on your "mindset for success". While many truly desire success, there can be some inner conflict interfering with a smooth transition from where you are to where you want to be. Slow down enough to clarify your vision and together, we'll get you there. As a long-time consultant & motivational speaker, I've worked with over a dozen hi-tech start-ups in Silicon Valley, California, as well as senior executives with Fortune 500 companies, both here and abroad. Do you need someone for your company or office event? Perhaps a school or educational event? My repertoire includes a range of subject which have to do with personal and professional success. I've been standing up in front of people since I was a child prodigy & found to be quite articulate at a young age. But I credit my father with that. He taught me to think before I speak & cultivate a good vocabulary. My mom taught me diction. In grade school I studied public speaking. In college I had to make presentations. All of this prepared me for a business career with Fortune 500 companies. Eventually as a business analyst for AT&T, I discovered that my flair for presentations was in demand by executives and other professionals who desired to advance in their careers or feel more relaxed in social situations. Business solutions, whether executive or not, require focus, thinking outside the box, confidence, a knowledge of leading edge options, and the support to stay the course while implementing your plan. Then, you need frequent reviews to gauge progress. People skills should go without saying, yet, it's people skills which can often stymie one's efforts. So, step back, evaluate your self-mastery, get your finances in order, learn the communication & interpersonal skills for successful team building, guard your resources, get creative, pace yourself, have intervals of down time to stay fresh, stay current with your industry and any current events which will impact it, and you'll find your way to solid footing.
