Excellent speaker. She had the audience rolling in laughter from some of her humorous stories.
If you need a speaker who will engage and entertain your group while inspiring them to become the best they can be, Jep is your guy! I have had the pleasure to work with Jep on several different occasions over the last several years. He has facilitated a variety of classes for our school district on leadership, positivity, conflict resolution, and more and has always left each group feeling inspired. He has a unique way of connecting with his audience using humor, music, and story-telling. I look forward to working with him on an upcoming project and know it will be great because he always delivers and gives his all. His energy and enthusiasm is unmatched.
My audience of 60+ said that Chet was a phenomenal speaker who brought forth some incredible thought provoking ideas. My group grew by 15 more members as a direct result of having Chet as a speaker. I highly recommend him.
As a speaker - impactful, powerful and really hones in on the message. I love listening to him! I have also worked with Gary on multiple projects, including my own. Gary goes far beyond just mindset and applies it to productive strategy and doable, relevant plans. When I have been "stuck," he has intuitively recognized my barriers and helped construct manageable steps to forward-moving progress. I can easily say that Gary's coaching has increased my own revenues - and profits, as well as connected me to people and opportunities that I never could have done without him. The fact that he is such an approachable celebrity speaks volumes about him too. I could not recommend another speaker or coach as much as I do Gary Barnes.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
I was getting ready to take a college placement exam and I felt lost and unfocused. My home environment was messy, I was letting myself get behind on bill payments, I was eating poorly and felt unmotivated. Kate offered to do a life coaching session with me. I was amazed that after only one session I felt so empowered. Kate gave me simple, easy to follow tools for achieving immediate successes in areas of my life that were preventing me from moving forward. I was able to easily check off accomplishments. I also had to check in with her to show that I was following through with what I needed to do to get through my own personal obstacles. I a very short time I was back on track and able to properly focus on my studies, without all of the mental and physical distractions I had created. I did well on my exams and now have a successful career in the field of Science! Kate is inspirational, uplifting, kind, and understanding. I would highly recommend her services to anyone, male or female.
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.
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.
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.
I have attended workshops, public speaking events, private classes and virtual workshops with Winifred. She has so much to offer and believes in every client that she has. She helped has helped me re-structure my thinking to take on any dream that I may have and has given me the freedom to dream bigger than I ever would have before. I strongly recommend Winifred R Harris and wish everyone had the opportunity to work with her.
Susan is able to transform even the most fearful into confident public speakers. Her speech writing has won awards and promotions for her clients.
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.
There are two kinds of people in this world – the ones who get stuck and caught up in their problems and the overcomers. I would like to introduce you to Monica Hawkins – a true overcomer of many difficult and challenging life situations. At first glance, you experience a joyful, confident, smart leader who has the technical skills and the personality to forge ahead, accomplishing many lofty goals and completing intricate and impactful programs while encouraging those around her to be all they can be. But when you take a closer look at Monica’s story you will find a true warrior. She has been through many of life’s major challenges, and with the help of God, she has overcome them to live victorious. The message that she shares is no matter what you have been through, you can begin again. She is a dynamic speaker, sharing unapologetically who she is and the trials she has experienced; and most importantly, practical steps to move into healing and forgiveness. Her workshops offer an in-depth, interactive experience to help move people out of their position of being stuck and propelling them forward into their God-given purpose in life.
