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
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.
I am writing to provide a professional reference for Davide Di Giorgio. In my experience as the Chief Operating Officer of Stegela Partners International I have had the pleasure of working with many of the best speakers and coaches in our industry. I have worked with many big name influencers, authors, and trainers. I have the pleasure of choosing who to bring in to do special coaching for our elite mastermind group, speaking for our monthly networking events of 150 people plus, and select the speakers for our annual 3 day live event in February for 350 plus people. Davide Di Giorgio not only ranks among the very best speakers I've encountered, he also is one of the most respectful and a real pleasure to work with. His speeches on the topics inspiration, motivation, and speaking are so innovative and our attendance loved him. We surveyed a number of attendees on who to bring back next year and overwhelmingly, he was rated number 1. His speech was done flawlessly, and was very engaging. Davide Di Giorgio captivated our audience from the moment he walked on to the stage until the moment he left. Not only was he a phenomenal speaker, he also was one of the easiest and most enjoyable people that I have done business with. Running an event can be a tad stressful and he was one person I did not have to stress about. He was on top of the ball at all times and was 110% respectful and a pleasure to work with. He is well connected and is a trusted resource on all things inspiration and speaking. In sum, it is my pleasure to give Davide Di Giorgio my highest recommendation as a keynote speaker. He will deliver valuable information in an inspiring and entertaining manner. Sincerely, Casey Nicole Fox COO Stegela Partners International Director Massive Success Breakthrough Conference
I have had the pleasure of working with John Seeley and hearing him speak several times over the past 15 years...his presentations just keep getting better and better! John has a very creative approach, and his informative, yet down-to-earth style engages a wide range of audiences, from personal development to schools to corporate. He blends humor and storytelling with interactive techniques to connect with and inspire listeners of all ages. I have heard him speak expertly on a wide variety of topics, tailored for each event. If you are a company, school, organization, or conference looking for a dynamic motivational speaker, you simply cannot go wrong with John! I highly recommend him.
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
Tiamo, thank you for your AMAZING Keynote Concert at my live event! You helped magnify the impact beyond measure! Your songs, stories, and motivational speaking deeply connected with my audience and transcended the events message in a way that was so inspiring for everyone! Plus, the original custom song that you wrote, produced, and performed live was such a thrilling surprise for the participants and an unforgettable highlight from the event! Thank you Tiamo for helping us create such a unique experience. I can't wait to have you back again!
Caliph is an outstanding speaker, mixing humor with the critical takeaways for our students and other guests as they pursue their academic goals. He was incredibly professional in how he interacted with us prior to delivering his keynote address to ensure that he touched on the key points that fit our theme and desired takeaways. Whether you're looking for a keynote speaker or a dynamic workshop facilitator who can engage students on many levels, I would highly recommend Caliph to anyone.
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
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.

The type of person I would love to call my friend. - She was a wonderful speaker! The story that she provided was very inspirational, and I would enjoy hearing from her again! From a conference management perspective, she was a pleasure to work with as well. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an inspirational and entertaining engagement.
We held a presentation for members of our softball organization and classmates. Very worth while experience! Ennis is highly motivated and entertaining as well as to the point. 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. He most definitely left an impact on our kids. Unforgettable!
Jill is an engaging speaker that exudes positive energy that is contagious. Jill, keep changing lives!
We were very pleased with the this speaker... almost a show really. My boss was not very excited a first and I had to convince her this would work at our conference. The feedback I recieved afterwards was tremendous. This was definitely one of the highlights of our event.
Jaquel Pitts spoke at our annual conference. His speech was amazing. He was in foster care for 17 years. He informed our attendees that he didn't discover who his father was until he reached the age of 19. Some members in the audience were crying. After his presentation our members walked away inspired being aware that anything is possible. I would definitely recommend his services as the quality of his services are extremely exceptional.

"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
