Perhaps the best communicator I've ever dealt with. Great ability to take an individual's gifts and talents and turn them into a profitable, sustainable business. Strong understand of both general business concepts as well as marketing, public relations, team communications and branding.
After working with Donna Bond I walked away from the experience a new person with new life skills. It was the best thing I ever did and worth every penny. My family and relationships have benefited greatly. I highly recommend working with Donna Bond.
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!
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.
Mat Shaffer I've had the pleasure of hearing Mat speak on several occasions in Ocean Beach and he is truly a gifted speaker. Mat is relatable, funny and really moves his audiences to action. He dubs himself as a recovering attorney, and has quite an interesting back story. I highly recommend Mat, 5 out of 5 stars….you will not be disappointed!

We have had Christina speak at multiple functions for our church. Women, youth and all ages. Christina's years of experience, service to her community, wisdom and understanding of scripture and culture give her a unique voice to all generations. It's not often you hear a speaker who can translate to all types of people; young and old, make or female. She is always sensitive to the needs of her audience and presents herself in a professional manner.
We're an event driven company that hosts 5 major events a year and I'm always on the look out for a new keynote speaker to bring in to inspire and captivate our members... Over the past 10 years I've easily hired/worked with hundreds of different speakers and have become accustomed to paying anywhere from $50-25k on the high end and $2k on the low end (just for a 1 hour keynote). I share this so you can appreciate that I've pretty much seen it all in this space and if you're considering hiring Patrick there's three things you need to know from our experience with him. He's going to captivate your audience, he's a class act, and a real master at his craft. To find this in one speaker is a true rarity, given the chance, I highly recommend you hire him and see for yourself.
Tina is a gifted empowerment coach who can quickly access a complex situation and apply sound solutions I have worked with Tina and am impressed with her attitude, directness and compassion
With regard to Mrs. Trinette Barrie's public speaking abilities, I can honestly attest to the fact that I have found her to be engaging, enlightened and always prepared. While her presentations are informative, her delivery style is both relaxed and compelling without feeling didactic. In my opinion, she has demonstrated the ability to communicate effectively with groups and individuals of varying ages and educational levels. Eddie J. Gage, Jr.
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.
Paul is one of the most authentic speakers I've been able to experience. His story of Go-Giver. Building a culture of excellence is impressive. A first hand witness to what qualities make up true leaders. Paul shares in detail what it takes to build a culture of excellence which leads to record setting results. It is a true pleasure to give Paul Anderson my highest recommendation as a keynote speaker. He will prepare, inspire and deliver in a very humble way.
Traci was an excellent speaker. She was able to captivate the audience, provide a poignant presentation and motivate everyone in the room. I would highly recommend, Traci, to anyone looking for someone that can reach across all ages. I can't say enough.
Joseph De Vico has spoken several times to my graduate social work class about mental health policy. It is clear from his presentations that he has excellent grasp of policy and is able to link it back to clinical practice. He is an articulate presenter whose passion for the subject and commitment to persons with mental illness is manifest. Each time he speaks, the students are highly engaged and express gratitude that he was invited to address the class. Here are two unsolicited comments from students who emailed me to comment on this lecture: "I wanted to let you know how much I thoroughly enjoyed today's guest speaker. It is this kind of material that reminds me exactly why I decided to enter the field of social work, and today's class was one of the most interesting I've experienced." Another student wrote," I found Joseph De Vico to be an incredibly insightful and informative speaker. Thank you for arranging the lecture. I'm grateful to have heard his perspective on treatment of folks dealing with serious mental illness in our community. I appreciated the context he provided to explain what brought us to our current policy and services today. "
