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!

Natalie is a highly energetic, spirited, empowering, effective motivational speaker on all levels. It was an honor and privilege to be in Natalie's classroom for the P2E training. She is authentic and a passionate high achiever who takes her profession very seriously. Not only does Natalie brings dynamic presentations and innovative ideas, she also teach how to get to the core of your true self and think outside the box to identify transferable skills. I highly recommend Natalie who inspires to recognize potentials, unleash talents, bring clarity and motivates passionately. She truly is Pryceless!!!

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

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 was my favorite speaker at our mini-conference. Her stories were funny and true and she really motivated us to think and re-examine our assumptions about aging and ourselves. I hope to hire her again next year.

David Flood created a rapport with all of our students from the moment he stepped in the door. From the popular students to those with substance abuse issues to our special needs students, David made time to speak with our students before and after his dicussion, staying for hours after to speak with students. it was refreshing to have a speaker come in that didn't just show up and collect their check. David doesn't approach the students as a lecturer. He both laughs and cries during his talk and though his stories, we as a school community followed the same emotional roller coaster. Our students were so impressed, they all wanted David to come back. As a staff, we have already discussed his return. Well worth the investment. David takes as long as needed, spending time in the school, talking openly and informally with students he walks by. He has already changed the lives of many of our students. I personally watched him help 5 students individually with their struggles at home. And that was during his informal walks. Imagine what his discussion is like. Thanks again David. Plan to book with us again soon.

If you were lucky you’d be able to meet a couple people in your lifetime that you can truly call a “sage.” Vision, commitment, perceptiveness, analytical brilliance, integrity and compassion; this is the essence of Gene. His deep experience, knowledge, and professionalism enable him to deliver successful results on any work he engages. He is extremely intelligent and highly adept at assessing issues in stagnant, under-performing environments and his innate ability to turn things around is unparalleled. He is an incredibly engaging facilitator, capturing the attention and hearts of those he engages in workshops, keynotes, or consulting engagements. He taught me to see everything as a part of a bigger system and that changed my perception and enabled me to become a much better professional as well as a better person.

Toni is very motivating! Our weekly phone calls and food diaries she request from me keep on track. Not only diet-wise, she has also become kind of like a life coach using her nutritional and diet knowledge to help me deal with other personal aspects of life. I have recommended her to other friends who I know are also very happy with her services!

I have been a client of Carla Zilka's for the last 4 years. I was drawn to her studio by her intelligence, talent and her strong dedication to her students. She truly cares about making the world a better place through her teaching. She is a true life long learner and makes it a point to share all her knowledge with her students. Her classes are like none other. I always leave her studio intellectually challenged and motivated. She has been instrumental in helping me reduce anxiety and stress by teaching me recognize the many ways habitual negative thought patterns block happiness. As a yoga teacher she taught me how I held on to stress in my body, but more importantly she showed me how I held on to stress in my mind. I've learned that the simple step of changing my thoughts could dramatically change how I lived my life. She introduced me to great books and teachings that helped explain the laws of attraction and our own ability to create positive outcomes. I can't say enough positive things about Carla. I am truly blessed to have found such an amazing teacher.
