We brought Jude in as a consultant to our non-profit agency when we were dealing with difficulties in adjusting to change and maintaining productive, positive interactions within our Management Team. She provided a series of training sessions which included mixed media, lectures, team building exercises, reading assignments and fun homework. Jude conducted the work with humor, innovation and the competence of extensive experience. Later we again retained Jude to assist with stress reduction techniques, including Heart Math. Our experiences with Jude were 100% successful. Our team functioning and communication improved dramatically after her training, enhancing mutual respect for one another, and improved services to people with developmental disabilities. There were times we felt absolutely inspired after one of her sessions! I recommend Jude without reservation.

Tony is full of tenacity. His work ethic is impeccable, and is ability to engage with his audience is outstanding.
In a sea of overwhelming info about health and diets, Jenna Pacelli is the calming voice that helped me find what was right for my body. From my sugar addiction, to dairy allergy, skin issues, and stress, Jenna opened my eyes to the habits I had that were affecting my body and not allowing it to heal and move forward to my goals. The things she taught me ranged from how to make better choices in shopping, cooking, snacking, relationships, work, and calming activities. Every change felt natural and easy, however, because I was moving from following fads to following my intuition. And I felt so good which motivated me to want to do more! She supported and guided me the entire time we worked together and I still find motivation and inspiration through her newsletters and website. She also always makes herself available whenever I need an emergency tune-up. Jenna's knowledge of nutrition and the body is amazing, yet she is not intimidating and is very compassionate with my concerns and needs. I feel like having a life/nutritional coach these days is almost a must-have because the internet and "age of information" provides information overload. I find it very hard to know who to trust. And also as a yoga professional and single mother, I don't have time to sort through the research myself. Jenna Pacelli literally took all my health issues, came back to me with many solutions, specific to my body and lifestyle, and we created a plan that worked, and that I am still maintaining two years later. If you are looking for guidance in your life, for better physical or mental health, contact Jenna Pacelli! I promise you will be so glad you did!!
Swordsmanship Selling has provided my students and I with helpful, personalized insight and motivational tools. Daniel is an inspiring individual who truly cares about the future success of his audience.
Alan was engaging, entertaining and provided an exceptional motivational message to our group. He was very adaptable and fit into our group and made our holiday meeting/dinner a complete success.
This review has been long overdue! We invited Jay as a guest speaker for our Google offsite in Seoul, Korea. The purpose of the first day of the offsite was to inspire and motivate our team. And starting the day off with Jay, did just that... and more! With his thought-provoking speech and meditation exercises, the team came out to be more centered and focused than ever. It was such a great experience to have as a team. I would definitely recommend Jay as an inspirational speaker for any team event. It is a must-do for everybody!
Eugene is an incredible speaker and does a great job captivating an audience. What I love best is he is just not an inspirational speaker he is a speaker that gives practical advice that anybody can easily learn and follow. I would recommend hiring him for your next speaking event or conference.
I truly have experienced multiple breakthrough moments. The assignments have been very helpful by holding me acountable to my comittment. Dr. Longs energetic and empowering, inspirational coaching session has been a driving force. I'm EXCITED and looking forward to new levels in my life.
I had hired Reema to give an hour of speech at our school to motivate our eight graders, and she was a treat to work with. Funny, professional, and very relatable, I highly recommend her to everyone. -Ash
Working with Angela has been a very constructive experience. She's a visionary, with the perfect blend of knowledge and presentation skills. This makes her a versatile trainer and a talented Speaker, who loves to engage her audience with real life scenarios and examples making sure her message is loud and clear. Ive always seen her take pains to respond to questions, even if she needs to research and then email her response, ensuring no attendee is left without a complete answer. She is an Ideal Educator ! She is well versed in the areas of Project Management, Computer System Validation, 21 CFR and the general regulatory arena. Personally, Ms. Bazigos is also an extremely hardworking, dedicated and smart professional.
Excellent presentation. Audience was very engaged. Very valuable information presented in an entertaining fashion.
As your coach, Mahri will give you real life exercises that address whatever life challenge you want to undertake.

I know!! As a motivational speaker--she is just plain fun!!
Killed it! Best speaker we've had in a long time. We laughed the entire hour but he had some good content too. Great Job.
Brian Preetz was one of our workshop presenters for our annual citywide youth conference. The conference evaluation came back raving over Brian's workshop. The teens loved his passion and energy while learning new strategies for success. Brian has the ability to capture the attention of all he addresses and leaving them energized and committed to following their dreams. I would strongly recommend him to any organization who is looking for a speaker, presenter and/or workshop facilitator. He has a wealth of information and the ability to tailor it to the audience he is addressing with passion, and enthusiasm. Finally, dealing with Brian was amazing! He carries himself in a professional manner at all times and is explosive when he needs to be. It was a pleasure to work with him. I truly believe he was one of the reasons our youth conference was a great success this year! Thank you! City of San Jose. Youth Commission.
My work stands out from others because I am original and all that I have been through is what I have been through. My testimony does not take pieces from anyone else's story, just my life, my breakthrough.

Lee Williamson is a motivational speaker and a wheelchair athlete who lives in San Jose, CA. He has worked and volunteered in the disabled community for the past 20 years. He loves helping others overcome their challenges through sports and recreation. Invite him, hear his story, watch him play, and see and hear him talk about a disability that has never slowed him down. His ability to capture your inner child, releasing it and showing you that life is what you make of it, is captivating. He will change your life; you will leave with a new perceptive of what life has to offer.
I am a motivational speaker and family coach offering a one-woman show on parenting. Schools, community organizations, places of worship, and parent groups are among those that have enjoyed "Real Parents, Real Kids, Real Talk", an informative parenting show filled with humor, common sense, and take-away tips to help parents and teachers to again enjoy the tough job they have. Personal stories from my own rough childhood and from the thousands of children and teens I have worked with over the past forty years help to explain and support the parenting tips I offer. Parents walk away from the show feeling validated, rejuvenated, and better equipped to handle their current and future parenting and life challenges.
"EXCELLENT SPEAKER!!!!!!" "What an inspiration!" "Best speaker I've ever had at these conferences. She was great!!!" Event planner: "So, no Powerpoint Presentation? Do you have at least a slide show of images?" Ali: "Nope." Event Planner: "Wow, you must be a powerful speaker to not need any props." Ali: "I'd say it's more the message that's powerful enough to stand on it's own." That's from an actual conversation with an event planner and the reviews at the very top there are from that very event. I can tell you right now that I'm not the kind with her head down, glasses on, reading from and shuffling pages, there's no power point presentation or flashy imaging (other than a cool intro video). I talk the same whether it's to a friend, a customer or a room full of Harvard professors. Ok, one exception. I do dial back on the swearing in public, but other than that, spot on, Bob's yer uncle, Frieda's yer aunt and I, am "Imperfection at its Best." I tell a compelling story straight from the heart of dealing with a daunting diagnosis through humor and a silver lining standpoint, get some laughs, maybe we all wipe a tear or two and when it's done, you're less afraid of cancer (and the other things that scare us), energized and inspired. There's big applause, even bigger hugs and affirmations and a slight dragging of the feet as we part ways because we all genuinely feel connected and had such an amazing time together. Oh, and sometimes I sing. That's a unique element to my speaking engagements is (when asked) I'll perform one of my original, Americana songs. It's my way of showing appreciation to the docs who saved (and keep saving) my lungs. Another nice touch is offering attendees a keepsake of the experience. My books and music CD covers are also customizable and make an excellent memento for conference goers.
