Davide Di Giorgio is one of the most engaging and dynamic speakers I know. His talks are filled with inspiration, humor, vision, valuable information, and inspired action. He makes slides that are engaging and uses them in a VERY unique way. During Davides talk I reflected on who I was as a speaker, entrepreneur and friend. He creates thoughtful conversation during talk and gives insight while giving you inspired action every time. Can’t wait to see him speak again!
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.
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
Just in one session with Krista I gained so much awareness about my voice and singing. She has a grounded way of inspiring through experience and talent. She truly believes in and loves those she works with which makes all the difference in the experience! Thanks Krista!
Debra is an inspiring and motivating coach. I have had the pleasure of being partners with her in a spiritual based group where I have found her to be very reliable and insightful. I highly recommend working with Debra Guttas.
I have never felt as comfortable opening up to anyone as I have with Amber. She is the most understanding and compassionate person I have ever met. Something about her presence is so warm and welcoming. After speaking with her I always feel so inspired. I wish I could have her come live with me so I could talk to her every day!
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.
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! Sincerely, Chuck Hardwick Organizer OBNetworking.com
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
Lisa Gordon is passionate, poised, and polished - a true professional. She is an incredible public speaker consistently delivering dynamic, engaging, and inspiring presentations.
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.

Ali spoke and perform at our annual conference. Our attendees really enjoyed her - here are some of their comments: - Absolutely amazing! You are such an inspiration to not only patients but therapists too!! Keep staying positive and living a full life!!! - Excellent and enduring speaker! 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 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.
This guy is the real deal & I am so honored to have him in my life, as well as the lives of my students! He has truly saved lives with his proactive approach through heart-felt discussions about important topics such as personal safety and accountability. Ennis Jackson is "one of kind" and is the BEST educational speaker I have ever seen! Fred Aspan-Martin OHS Health Teacher
Jaqueline is one of the sweetest persons you'll ever meet. I hired her to officiate my father's memorial service and she far exceeded my expectations. She was very involved with me and was always concerned about my feelings and opinions for the service. She had created several drafts for me to look at and was never annoyed with my changes. She was very patient with me and very supportive. On the day of the service she was on time and very helpful. I wasn't prepared for playing the music my mother had requested and Jackie told me not to worry about it and she would figure it out, which she did. She had downloaded the music for me and found a way to play it over a speaker for everyone to hear. I am so glad she was able to do that for me as I wasn't looking forward to telling my mom there wouldn't be any music. She truly is Amazing! I recommend her a million times over to anyone looking for an officiant or spiritual counselor! I thank God she was placed in my life, and at the right moment too!
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. "
Dom's ability to connect and give relatable experiences during the coaching sessions is 2nd to none. You're not going to get as many genuinely interested coaches as Dom. His focus is on the individual's success, that's what coaching is all about!
Micki is unlike any other nutrition and lifestyle coach out there. Her expertise exceeds others in the same field because she is highly knowledgeable in Functional Medicine and works with her clients from her heart. She is invested in helping people reach their goals while also making it fun and easy to put into action. She has a true gift in being able to combine a love for food, exercise as a way to appreciate our body, and finding our true happiness as a way to care for ourselves. Micki is also very creative and having this skill allows her to discover solutions that others in her field find difficult to see. Micki is someone I go to when I need help brainstorming solutions, finding inspiration, and regaining confidence when it is running a bit low. If you want a true transformation when it comes to your nutrition and lifestyle, Micki is the single person you want and need in your corner.
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
