Jeffery F.
Verified review

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

    I had had no experience with a nutrition coach before working with Tina Paymaster. However, her manner when extending the offer to me was so gentle and reassuring that I decided to take the plunge and sign up. I am so glad I did! Working with Tina has improved my life in so many unforeseen ways. While I was able to learn dietary discipline through understanding my cravings and emotional motivations (as I had expected), it was the unexpected impact it had on other areas of my life that caught me by surprise. A shift as simple as making decisions from a positive place, rather than a negative one was extremely eye-opening to me. That simple a change in perspective affected how I see myself, how I interact with people, and how I plan my future. It made me more outgoing, adventurous and social. Our entire lives we are growing and I am grateful for the things I learned with her that has allowed me to grow into a more mature and confident person. Thank you so much Tina!

    Natalie Pryce is the best motivational speaker, confidence builder and career coach I have ever had the pleasure to work with in my many years in business. Her impactful seminars, coaching sessions and job search strategy sessions inspire all who have the opportunity to work with her. It is amazing the watch how she can transform people who lack confidence in what they have to offer employers. She is quick to recognize potential and coach people to be their authentic selves. If you need help with your career, I wouldn’t recommend anyone but Natalie!

    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.

    Elizabeth is an outstanding nutritionist and trainer. I am involved in her semi-private classes and she conducts each class with the purpose of strengthening the body from within- keeping in mind the individual needs of everyone.

    Mr. Pfister has been a guest speaker at many of my client events, specifically when I need to ‘make an impact’ with new clients or have the challenge of keeping large audiences engaged. Need a motivating and focused speaker with just the right balance of facts, audience interaction and interesting anecdotes? You’ve found the right person.

    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.

Peter designed easy to follow sessions and was consistently one of our top rated trainers. He delivered a number of training sessions around the NYC and Westchester areas. I highly recommend him for any motivational speaking or training needs. Gregory Scotland Toastmasters International District 46 Public Relations Manager 2016-2017

    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.

      About

      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!
