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.

    Jenn came and spoke to our Special Education population. The students were thoroughly engaged and inspired by her presentation and even the quiet kids asked questions. The students told me afterwards that they loved the music and her sense of humor. She is by far, the best guest speaker we have had the privilege of having come speak at our school! We hope she can come back and bring her positive, motivational talk with her! Thanks Jenn.

    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.

    I needed motivation, education and experience and A.J. hit the mark on all three. His service and professionalism is outstanding and his always positive energy pushed me harder than I could on my own. Stronger, fitter, healthier and happier thanks to him.

    I have known Kiana for over a decade and have the privilege of seeing her grow both personally and professionally. The quality of her work and the care and mentorship that she pours into her mentees and students is impeccable. Working with her as well as having the opportunity to be a speaker and instructor for her students has always been a wonderful experience.

    Dr. Alex Karimi spoke at a workshop that my company attended last month. I've been to various speaking engagements, and listened to many motivational speeches in my life, but Dr. K really presented us with great techniques and tools for managing and attaining goals. Many of my colleges and myself continue to talk about what we learned from Dr. K's speech. Thank you Dr. Karimi for bringing your wisdom into our lives.

    At times when I've almost completely given up on the male sex, Adriana has helped shed some light on my seemingly hopeless situations. Her knowledge and positivity has helped me to be a more confident and patient woman. I've realized things aren't as complicated as I make them and dating can actually be a fun experience! You are amazing Adriana! Such an uplifting and motivating person.

    Dr. Meg offers multiple talks on nutrition, health and healing the body through food that are extremely educational. She is clearly an expert and I love that she shares her own personal experiences and challenges she has overcome. My audience was thrilled with her knowledge, expertise and presentation. I highly recommend her as a professional speaker!

    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!
