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 was very fortunate to have worked with Tracy. Public speaking does not come natural to me yet my work does require me to do presentations and product demos. And working with Tracy helped me tremendously. First off, she is incredibly friendly, patient, and empathetic. Her methods are simple but really effective. I used to be really rigid in my previous presentations, but after working with her, I am much more relaxed and I allow the presentation to flow much more naturally. The result is I keep my audience's attention much more. I would say that the improv exercises we did were the most effective. I think anyone, in particular those who are introverted like myself, and find it difficult to present will benefit from her insight and guidance. She is a great person to know and you should consider yourself lucky if you get the chance to work with her.

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

Jenn August is hands down one of the best speakers I've ever seen. She is SO engaging, the audience stays on the edge of their seat the whole time. She's funny, profound, and thought-provoking. She's natural, so natural she makes speaking look effortless. I highly recommend her for any event where you want to have people feeling touched, inspired, and just plain blown away!

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.

I have used Michael's services for my own professional development, for that of my staff and as a consultant at our organization. He is very personable and relatable while maintaining the highest level of professionalism. Michael offered sound insights, identified issues and helped us plan for success without pointing out failings or putting us on the defensive. As a speaker, Michael uses his time appropriately, keeps things moving, plenty of laughs and great information. He comes with my highest recommendation.

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.

I am so glad I connected with Catherine for my public speaking concerns because she made all the difference in the world in helping me gain confidence, connect with the audience and the content of my speech. In fact, I originally needed help in speech content and my delivery in order to get a promotion I passed up awhile back, due to my lack of speaking skills. Because of Catherine’s insight to motivation, and her skill in determining a person's development of content suited to my specific topics, I made a huge impression on my colleagues and apparently my supervisor in the accounting office I work at. Many thanks, Catherine, to your patience and guidance to set me apart from all the others with my unique personality in speaking and presenting. And now, I have tremendous confidence! Kimberly W.

April Fletcher has a natural openness to conversing by listening gently at depth and then sharing ideas infused with her personal experience/knowledge/touch. She waits and listens; listens with care from the beginning to the end until the speaker has clearly finished delivering their thought/question/mind. You can feel her listening. The majority of listeners, without being aware, are often caught with their own concern, and therefore in many situations do not fully engage with the speaker's. I have known April for over ten years; her creative listening and definite communication/teaching skills continue to fascinate and excite me. She always has a fresh vibrant offering that keeps bringing me back to her for more enlightenment. Goh Kurosawa International touring artist / Producer of Brilliant Strings / ComposeLife.com

I have known Tara Gipson for over 17 years. She is a multifaceted individual with great entrepreneurial skills & business savvy. Having worked with her in marketing, she was always driven & hard working. She has great communication & interpersonal skills & knows how to talk to the public. She was also the multimedia journalist for the crowncitynews.com & she wrote some of the best Editorials we have ever read. Her wit and ability to hit subjects dead on with complete candor is amazing. She is resourceful, driven & has a keen eye for a good story. Tara also covered many special events and never missed a timeline. I have also watched on her on the local Pasadena tv news & she didn't not hesitate in askig the poignant questions & she knew how to create a smooth flow for the story. Tara is also a dedicated professional in the educational field. I can honestly say that she is one of the most compassionate people I have worked with in dealing with children of all ages.
