We had the pleasure of working with Father Callahan. He was very helpful, punctual and such a kind speaker. He even arrived earlier. We were blown away by his sermon and it made our Roman Catholic ceremony that much special. Our friends and family were delighted with the father too. They were deeply moved to tears. We're native Spanish speakers and he added a Spanish passage to the ceremony. We can't thank him enough!
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. Jims 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 Jims 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 toand feeling inspired to engage withJims 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.

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.
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.
Jill is a thoughtful, engaging, and experienced speaker with a unique sense of humor and charm.
A powerful speaker. You met and exceed my expectations. Your message was thought provoking and inspiring.
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!
Brian Watts is an amazing speaker and leader. His presence is commanding and change promoting. I have enjoyed working with him. He is, no doubt, one of the most engaging speakers I've heard in a while!
Very good. Highly recommended
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.
Very satisfied with coaching. Exactly what I needed to get "un-stuck."

I help you to not only create a great speech, but to become an EXCELLENT speaker - two separate, but equally important goals when working with me.
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!
