Fantastic experience working with Juan and Pura Vida Wedding. Juan made the process very easy and accommodated our requests. Especially as we had a combined group of Spanish and English speakers, able to help bridge the gap so both sets of parties were equally included. Extremely professional and genuinely sincere, it is evident that Juan takes great pride and passion in what he does to make your special day, truly significant! Would highly recommend Juan and Pura Vida Wedding to anyone getting married, and feel confident that you have made the right choice when you say, “I do!”

Jim Ryan came highly recommended by a staff member, and upon meeting with him I knew immediately that he would be an excellent speaker to have at our annual staff development day. This proved true. Jim presented his “Simple Happiness” message to 130 employees of various ages and backgrounds. His uplifting and motivational presentation resonated broadly and deeply with out diverse group. As often is the case with employees in healthcare and other helping profession, it can sometimes be difficult to separate work and home life. Jim’s approach enabled each staff member in his or her own way to explore opportunities to apply to themselves— both professionally and personally— the same drive for joy, happiness, well-being, and unconditional positive regard that they ten to strongly deliver to other people, including their clients and peers. Jim offered highly relevant tools, concepts, and ideas. I received many positive comments from staff at the conclusion of the event and in the weeks afterward. My staff particularly enjoyed Jim’s tips on adding joy to daily life. I highly recommend Jim Ryan as a speaker for any event with a goal of enforcing personal wellness. I have no doubt that after listening to—and feeling inspired to engage with—Jim’s message, you and those you lead will feel a renewed sense of joy and positivity Jeffrey Freidman

    Brian is an incredible moderator, master of ceremonies and speaker. Whatever the event, he can articulate your message with sincerity, humor and wit; leaving an audience embraced with positive feelings. I would definitely hire him for a corporate, private, or educational meeting or event. He arrives prepared and ready to work! I really enjoyed working with him. You will too!

    Dynamic is the first word that comes to mind when I think of Mark Pfister. A master strategic planner, public speaker and leader, Mark brings immediate palpable and measurable changes to every endeavor he touches. Perhaps his finest attribute is his ability to share his talents by patiently mentoring his clients and colleagues. I have witnessed this first hand as a business partner and while serving on multiple boards with him.

    I was at an entrepreneur workshop and Ms. Diamond was one of the speakers. She was so empowering and got me to change the way I think about success and wealth and how to obtain it. It starts in the MIND.

    I have known and worked with Nora for a number of years and can't recommend her highly enough. As a speaker, she is a great combination of analytical and insightful, while deeply engaging the audience and using humor and personal experience to "keep it real". I've also worked with her as a coach where she is incredibly responsive, helpful, and warm, while digging into the heart of the matter and delivering, real, transformational advice and support. Nora is awesome!

    Peter is one of the best public speakers I know. He is very connected and engaged with the audience when he speaks and those who are listening to him can't help but be captivated. His professionalism also stands out among other public speakers I've worked with as well! Any organization seeking to improve their communications would be very well served by inviting Peter to speak. I've invited him to speak at events I've organized- in particular an Open House Toastmasters event- and other occasions- and he's delivered top notch quality, EVERY TIME. I could not recommend him more highly! Jesicka Labud Toastmasters International D46 Area 54 Director

    Victoria, is quite a talent! My wife and I met with her for about 45 minutes and she presented me with a handout script for me to read out loud and then critique me over and over again until I improved somewhat, as it’s still a work in progress but I think she’s well worth the money.

    Ronnie Nunn is a mentor, friend and my former HS bsketball coach. He is a man of intergity, sound principles, high morality and devoted to the development of people. He has always kept in touch with me and has assisted me with my personal and professional development. Whenever I have called upon him to speak to a group or just one individual he has always made himself available. He is a great speaker. He possesses tremendous interpersonal skills and connects with our very diverse society. I am a better person today due to the impact Ronnie Nunn has made in my life. I have invited Coach Nunn to speak to my student-athletes on a several occasion. He always leaves his audiences wanting more and if given the opportunity he will "move your crowd" as well.

    Colleen spoke at our event in September 2014. She is an absolute pleasure to work with! She took time to understand the focus of our event and the needs of our audience so that her topic could be tailored to fit the event perfectly. Colleen is a true professional and I highly recommend her as a speaker for any event – large or small. We look forward to working with Colleen again in the future!

      Cary Goldberg has a way of moving hearts and minds with an intense but nurturing zeal. On more than one occasion I've been an attendee whilst he does what he does best. as a member of the the crowd you feel more so a part of something, as friends, than merely watching or listening to a speaker or artist. He has an empowering, yet real outlook on life that captivates and stimulates the most human parts of mind and body. Everytime, his work leaves a lasting and impactful sense of motivation and healing. He challenges the discouraging elements of life like pain and division and celebrates resilience and unity. A real testament to using adversity to grow. Upon having the pleasure of seeing Cary Goldberg he has long since been an inspiration in my life and I highly reccomend that experience to others looking for someone to really relatably connect while still offering a new or normally unheard view of the world.

      Karen Purcell, M.M., N.D., C.N., is The Diva Doc's naturopathic physician, professional speaker and opera singer. My career aspirations as an opera singer were dashed because of an ongoing illness. Eventually, I found natural medicine. I was amazed that it worked so well that I was able to sing all over the world. Later, I studied naturopathic medicine, herbalism, nutrition, stress reduction and homeopathy. It has been my privilege to work with people of all ages and from all walks of life. They call me The Diva Doc because of my performance history and my sparkle. Now, I can do everything -- treat patients, sing, teach and speak professionally to many groups.

      Kevin is the ONLY motivational and leadership speaker in America to EVER have a day of recognition passed by The United States Congress. January 2nd of every year is National Motivation & Inspiration Day. After hundreds of years of speakers, Kevin is the first to dedicate a day to the importance of "motivation and inspiration" in our lives? In addition, in his book, "Who Are You?" he introduces the most significant addition to Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs in 60 years. For those that know, Dr. Maslow's brilliant work is considered a foundational study in human behavior and motivation. In essence, what motivate people. These two simple things make Kevin stand above all others as "Mr. Motivation and America's CMO ~ Chief Motivation Officer," because there a literally thousands of speakers that have not created what Kevin has created. He is one of the most talented, intelligent, passionate and unique speakers today!
