This is my third stint as our Rotary Club Program Director and I can say without any hesitation that "Magic Dan" was one of our top 3 speakers. Thirty minutes is just not enough time to fully appreciate his talent! All fun and a little history.
Cheri is an outstanding speaker! The East Colorado SBDC has worked with Cheri frequently over the past year and a half. She has lead live and webinar presentation on: Content Development, Growing and Managing Your Email List, Using Social Media to Grow Your Business, and much more. Working with Cheri and Victory Circles has been truly rewarding!
Excellent speaker. Very informative and entertaining presentation. Our membership was completely engaged throughout the talk. Lots of give and take with Gail. Lots of laughter and great music at the end.
Mara Abbott was the key note speaker at the AISTS Graduation Ceremony this year, in February at the Olympic Museum in Switzerland. Mara gave a professional and passionate speech about her journey as an athlete and a heartfelt anecdote on her most recent experience at the Rio Olympic Games. Mara's words of encouragement and motivation were definitely heard by all present in the audience, which was over 200 people. Her determination and passion that she injected into her speech gave our graduates a sense of purpose as they set out on their new challenge. Thank you Mara for sharing your journey with us all.
We were very pleased with the performance. Perhaps the best feedback from the staff of any speaker we've had. I can recommend Mark without hesitation.
Excellent speaker. She had the audience rolling in laughter from some of her humorous stories.
Ana-Christina is the most genuine person I know - very sincere and straight-forward. She speaks from her heart, which is a breath of fresh air. I've so enjoyed working with Ana-Christina and find her to be a bundle of knowledge as well as an intelligent and thought-provoking speaker !
We contacted Alicia and asked her to be a guest speaker at a weekly meeting we host. Without exception, participants were blown away with her presentation and the knowledge she shared. Alicia’s presentation is for ANYONE wanting to make a positive impact.
Tina spoke at our Women's Roundtable event on the power of kindness and mindfulness. She incorporated amazing examples and research backed information that was very applicable and inspiring. As part of the presentation, she brought interactive handouts that really got our group thinking and sharing. Overall I highly recommend Tina and have heard nothing but positive feedback from the attendees.
Sean spoke at our summer conference and everyone loved him and his message. He had video, audio, and a real life story of courage and hope.
It can be very unnerving preparing to walk into a wild-card audience, but Michelle nailed it. She came to visit with my public speaking class of rather tough and intimidating 9th through 11th graders...and they loved her! Even though Michelle comes from a completely different set of experiences than my students, she connected with them on a level that was inspiring. They think she's the coolest Gramma ever! And as a teacher, I found her support and encouragement very energizing!
Susan is able to transform even the most fearful into confident public speakers. Her speech writing has won awards and promotions for her clients.
Nikki is a great speaker and tells her story in an engaging and fun way. I learned so much about alternative treatments for brain injury from someone who used them and had success, so it doesn't get much better than that. I'm so glad I could connect with her.
Paul helped us find and get under contract on our dream home. He was available to answer all our first time home buyer questions. He came and met us at the inspection and generally went above and beyond for us. We would highly recommend working with Paul.
To Whom It May Concern: I recently hired Sandra Ford Walston to present at our annual winter conference. She did a fantastic job of enlightening and encouraging our members to live their lives with courage. She is energetic, intelligent, and a wonderful speaker who sweeps the audience up with her enthusiasm. After giving us an overview of the concept of courage and her research on the topic, she broke us up into groups and guided us to draft a pretend Courageous Leadership Charter, detailing how we would hold our organization and its members accountable for being courageous leaders, and what the results of that might be. Some of the participants took the charter back to their offices and were excited to create a real charter with their staff. I think this is the utmost compliment that can be given that what they learned is important and they are going to pass it along to others. I can always tell when a speaker has been successful at our conferences because I hear the group repeating concepts, anecdotes, examples, etc. which they heard during the presentation. And this was certainly true with Sandras talk. I would recommend Sandra to anyone looking for an enthusiastic, tireless, and informative speaker, with years of research to back her up.
I provide counseling in person and coaching in person, over the phone, or via Skype. My work with clients in counseling and coaching empowers people to design the outcomes wanted in their lives. As a speaker I have experience speaking to adolescent and adult groups of various sizes. If you are interested in hiring me as a speaker, ask about my discounted fees when including my coaching program for members of your group.
Jody's trademark is to deliver very funny motivational speeches, humor is a key part of her audience connection. Throughout the speech, Jody interacts with the audience around pre- planned content points and highlights members accomplishments, challenges and quirks. The interaction creates a strong personalized effect on your audience and helps audience members get to know each other.
