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 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!

Bill Chott is an awesome and dynamic instructor, a great comedian as he was a regular on Disney's "The Wizards of Waverly Place". His resume speaks volumes! I have been involved with his classes and have watched him work as well as filmed him work. A sheer delight. Whether you are looking for an awesomely dynamic motivational speaker, an improv instructor, or an comedian/actor, Mr. Bill Chott is your best choice.

I started working with Laura intermittently back in 2008, 2009. She was my trainer on and off, but that was due to my lack of commitment. I was beginning nursing school late 2009/early 2010 and had to get health screened. To my suprise, I was in poor condition. Laura changed my life from this point forward! After consulting with her again, we established a solid foundation with training inside and outside the gym. Later that year, with her training, I competed in my first ever triathlon which was very daunting to say the least! I finished strong and felt great! 2 months later, I competed in an Olympic distance race (by the way, she totally raced with me and was huge moral support). It is now 2014 and I still work with her. I have witnessed Laura grow in her experience and knowledge with the health and fitness field. Her nutritional knowledge is on the cutting edge! I get excited conversing with her regarding the new/old/different ways we approach health. She is a "well of knowledge" and always seems to have something new to teach or learn about! Laura's strengths are in her ability to blend eastern and western knowledge and loving every bit of it! She's a problem solver and thinker who is not afraid to sift and search for the answers. Laura has really helped me see the connection with the mind, body, and spirit and to integrate all of these aspects for total wellness. I am very satisfied and confident in Laura as a health/wellness mentor. Did I mention she is helping me take my fitness to the next level by competing in Ironman 70.3 in September??

My name is Abi Levine and I own L.O.V.E. Hypnotherapy. We host workshops once a month, teaching about personal growth and mindset. Every once in a while I invite a guest speaker in, but I am very picky about who speaks because I have spent years cultivating my community and providing value to them. When I first met Dan, I was immediately impressed with his knowledge base and his vast experience with different cultures. At the seminar, I watched as he connected with each participant at their level, no matter where they were in their journey. He has a lighthearted sense of humor, while being direct and to the point. He has a way of explaining complicated processes in the brain, and making them so easy to understand, my 10 year old would get it. I had so many rave reviews after the first workshop that I invited him back 12 more times! The change that was created in the workshops that Dan spoke at, was unparalleled to anything I've ever seen in a workshop before. He's one of a kind! I HIGHLY recommend him for your next event.

One of the best motivational speakers I have ever heard. From his struggles growing up as a child to becoming an Olympic athlete. Charles teaching has allowed me shape my life in such a powerful way, I wish they were more than five stars that could be given.

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

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!
