Ira was chosen to officiate our wedding after communicating with a number of other professionals that left us a less positive impression. What a fine choice. He arrived on time and delivered a casual yet inspirational ceremony that felt nothing like a dry, rehersed routine. All of our guests were impressed and moved. Thank you so much for helping our wedding day be better than expected!

She was great! She provided suggestion before starting, she took my existing resume and updated the formatting and added key words employers look for. It looks so much more professional!

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.

Carrie was one of the best speakers I've heard in a long time. She had the perfect amount of humor and empathy weaved into her talk. I got great feedback about her from the audience afterwards.

I have worked with Lois for the past three month, and she is just AMAZING. I have learned so much from her about public speaking, interview techniques and accent reduction. I am now much more confident about my English and presentation stills. She did an absolutely fantastic job on editing my resume and personal statements. Unlike online editing services (which just correct grammar and punctuation mistakes and typos), she spent time to know my vision and what I really wanted to express. The end results were impressive pieces that were personal and really made me stand out. Lois is intelligent, delightful and inspirational, and I truly enjoy her teaching. I especially love her homemade iced tea in this hot summer. I strongly recommend Lois for her lessons and will definitely continue working with her!

First phone contact AND subsequent, in-person, one-hour session with Michelle Hannah was outstanding. She is polite, courteous, promptly responsive to your queries, professional, yet friendly, warm, inspiring, and NATURALLY vibrant, positive, and energetic. She is also sincere and authentic - what I truly respect. And she demonstrated her expertise immediately. I was thoroughly impressed. She is excellent at honing in right on my target desires and goals (be these implicit or explicit), and mirrors and articulates well my objectives. She also is very good at obtaining clarity from me on any issues or points that are relevant to my objectives. This indicates to me that she is listening very well, and accurately, and is responsible to not misunderstand or assume/presume what I feel, think, or mean to say. In doing so, I feel that I am clearly heard by her. As such, she recognizes nuances that may either hinder or help me as I proceed forward. Terrific communication skills, and which do not feel forced or mechanical. She's fluid AND precise in how she communicates. In her emphasis on the pragmatic, she quickly, effectively, and clearly breaks down my larger goals into realistic, do-able, non-intimidating chunks. This so that I will have a better chance at experiencing the positive re-inforcement of my having actually completed my step-by-step goals. Instead of feeling bogged down and discouraged, this gets me moving out of 'stuckness' and stagnation. (Getting unstuck is difficult to do on one's own, when it comes to particularly sticky or stubborn issues. Including counter-productive ones that I've been tolerating for too long and to my detriment. So, Ms. Hannah's positive 'shake-up' activates me in the best ways, and in alignment with what is best in me.) In her non-judgmental and compassionate way, Ms. Hannah affected my energy, my outlook, and my confidence immediately and for the better. And she did this without hype or false or artificial means, but in substantive and real ways (and matching what I feel about my true core self). I feel that, with Ms. Hannah, my life situation and desired goals are genuinely validated. Terrific to feel that I have someone in my corner, in a healthy, productive way. Just invaluable. She is also well organized. I was impressed with the introductory worksheets she asked me to fill out, before our first session, and the realistic, do-able homework she gave me to complete before our next session. She understands the importance of positive momentum, as do I. Accordingly, I appreciated her recommendation that I schedule my next session not more than 9-10 days after the first one. I told her ahead of time that that's the kind of accountability I want and need, to keep me on track with my goals at this early stage. In my estimation, Ms. Hannah went above and beyond for my first session. That said, I will not take her generosity of investment for granted. In fact, it's part of what motivates me to meet my goals: valuing her time and my time, and what we put into the work together, as client and coach. As I see it, this is not unlike an athlete who's inspired to do well, not just for herself but in appreciation of her coach's efforts as well. She also works with a partner-coach whose business/finance background will be very helpful to some of my goals as well. But the partner-coach is not involved with my private sessions with Ms. Hannah. Those, I presume, would be separate sessions on an as-needed basis. A great complementary choice for a client to have. The only area of improvement I would suggest, thus far, is that Ms. Hannah provide her office address on her initial intake material, once a client hires her. A simple, practical item of information.

The American Subcontractors Association, a national trade association representing subcontractors, specialty trade contractors and suppliers in the construction industry, holds its national convention annually. During our convention, we offer general sessions featuring keynote speakers, along with education workshops focused on construction issues that most impact subcontractors—such as payment issues, contracts, and risk allocation. But for our general sessions, we aim to deliver compelling speakers who inspire and energize participants. Redmond Ramos’ story immediately grabbed our attention. We felt our members would embrace him as a veteran and identify with his struggle. We scheduled Redmond as our lead-off keynote speaker for SUBExcel 2017, held in March 2017 in Denver, Colorado. We expected Redmond to “wow” us with his story and energize our members from the very start of our convention. And, boy did he deliver! One participant commented, “Very inspirational and a great way to kick off the convention!” Another noted, “Very real. A welcome change from a polished speaker.” More than 90 percent of participants who responded to our evaluation survey were “very satisfied” or “satisfied” with “relevance of the content to your job or responsibilities.” More than 80 percent of respondents were “very satisfied” or “satisfied” with the “opportunity to engage or interact” with the speaker, and 100 percent were “very satisfied” or “satisfied” with the “quality of the speaker.” One hundred percent also said they were “very satisfied” or “satisfied” with the “attainment of valuable learning objectives” from Redmond’s presentation, and 100 percent said they were “very satisfied” or “satisfied” with the “overall session.” Redmond received a standing ovation from the nearly 200 people in attendance. But perhaps even more importantly, Redmond set the stage for what would become one of the most successful conventions we have ever offered!

Allen and the team at breitercreative were incredible partners helping to prepare a presentation that was both visually impressive and informational for our audience. The process from concept through design was completely transparent and the milestone sessions where Allen and team revealed portions of the presentation were inspiring! breitercreative is a tremendous team that we will seek out for all our presentation and branding needs in the future. Honestly, we would not have been as successful in our campaign launch with out them!

Brandi was wonderful! She has such a powerful energy that you can not but to notice as she walks into the room. I have worked with her before and every time I leave feeling focused, repaired and refreshed! This last time she traveled to me which was fantastic. She was punctual and very well prepared. She left me open and harmonious in all my chakras! This healing session carried over to the next day where my energy was glowing. I was level headed, focused and ready to take on anything. I was able to speak to my clients more clearly without stumbling on any words. Brandi Veil is a true healer and an amazing development coach with so much powerful energy and passion that I strongly recommend her to get you where you want to be!

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
