John is a fantastic trainer - he's super motivational and friendly - and keeps you on task both in his workouts and with his out-of-session tips & homework. I've been working with John for about a year and have lost 30 pounds (!) - more than that I'm stronger than I've ever been. Highly recommend him to superpower your fitness routine.

Mr. Ma is an energetic and engaging speaker. He knows how to impact a large audience as if he was speaking to everyone individually. I have had him speak for us 2 times, and I will for sure have him come speak again in the future.

I worked with Jenna 1:1, specifically through her emotional resiliency training, and I have to say it was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. She is insightful, kind, and gifted in the art of healing. I could write a book on what she has done for me, but I felt compelled to take this time to highlight the biggest reason why she made the experience so unique and wonderful. Jenna has mastered the seemingly lost art of active listening. Passive listening is when people listen to you in order to respond with comments of their own. They are waiting for you to stop talking so they can chime in with what they have to say. It becomes more about them than the content of the speaker. This seems almost universal at this point when speaking to people. We all have grown to accept the feeling associated with talking to people who are using passive listening as normal. Active listening is truly digesting the information someone is presenting to you, not thinking of your response during their time talking, and formulating a genuine response only after it has truly sunk in. I can not do justice in words alone to express the pleasure and healing that comes from talking to Jenna. It is like breathing clean air for the first time and wondering why breathing isn't always this way! Why can't conversation always be this wonderful? My conversations with her leave me feeling refreshed and rejuvenated because I can feel she is a human being that is actually listening to me in the way we are supposed to listen to someone! It seems like such a simple thing but you really have to experience it to understand how extraordinary it is. Talking to someone who is engaged in active listening releases a tremendous amount of stress and you feel loved by just expressing yourself. In this digital age, we are increasingly living in a disconnected society. We have "friends" but we don't have friends. People "listen" to us but they don't really listen. Yes, Jenna has the schooling, experience, and tools to make a difference in your life. More than anything though, she'll make you feel human again. Her ability to connect and understand you is the most remarkable thing I have seen a very long time. I would recommend her to anyone remotely feeling out of line with themselves. In fact, I would recommend her to anyone period. It would be a benefit to anyone at any stage of their life to have her guiding presence.

Sue is a dynamic innovator and creative marketing genius. Her mind works so quickly that when she talks you should record what she says or you will miss half of it. She has great marketing intuition and can give you new perspectives on everything you are already doing to grow your business and make more money. I highly recommend her for small business innovation, production, new start ups and all around marketing ideas. She is also really fun to be around while she teaches social media techniques and website optimization. She is a get it done motivator.

Adam is everything you want in a meditation coach. He is a warm, generous spirit. He is funny (hysterical really). He is impressively smart and knowledgeable. It is obvious when working with him or simply talking to him that he was studied diligently, put in years of hard word, learning about and practicing various contemplative traditions. He has lived in monasteries for years, and brings this background to his work. He will impress you in this way. However, it is his humility that you will feel when your session is over. As Maya Angelou said, "...people will never forget how you made them feel." Adam makes you feel welcomed, supported and inspired. I am grateful for his assistance in helping me establish a meditation practice (no small feat). But I am more grateful for our sessions together and the wisdom he's brought to my life. There are more pockets of peace and calm in my life, more places of dignity, less anxiety - little by little, more happiness.

Gaynor truly was more than I could have ever asked for. She really helped me focus, provided honest feedback and motivation to help me figure out what I want to do next in my career. I strongly recommend her to anyone in the Bay area looking for a career coach to receive feedback on your resume, career guidance or help you get to that next level.

Liz Ramos inspires others to greatness. She is a gifted speaker, trainer and coach. Liz was the featured speaker at a meeting I attended with a cross-section of business owners and employees. Liz's delivery was powerful; engaging us to consider leveraging strengths to maximize overall productivity with examples resonating for each of us. I've also had the pleasure of experiencing team dynamics with Liz. She is a master of enhancing team engagement and productivity through leveraging strengths of the individuals. When you are looking for an inspirational speaker, a dynamic trainer and a gifted business partner, I highly recommend Engeniate's Liz Ramos.

Mikal is a dynamic speaker, who completely commands the audience. His ability to engage, entertain, and educate is unparalleled. As a planner, I am cautious about who I put in front of a room; but Mikal Mekki has never disappointed. From an audience of entrepreneurs to hospitality professionals to C-level executives; Mikal has the talent and professionalism in any environment. Attendees are still raving about Mikal's keynote delivery and is book - "Running with Finishers". I would highly recommend Mikal and will continue to book him.

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. - Ed Quinlan, President of Corporate Alliance

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!
