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
Glenn is an absolulte pleasure to work with and learn from. He is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to branding a business and what it takes to generate new clientelle and retain current ones.

Are you looking to invest in your team? Are you looking for a motivational speaker? Someone to get energize your organization/team? Someone to remove the distractions and tensions that are slowing your team down? Are you having a hard time to choose from the many motivational speakers available? All the above were a yes for me. Here's why I choose Bridget and how it turned out... I choose Bridget because she has a wealth of education (masters and doctorate), and impressive experience and expertise. The hybrid combination of the above seemed like they might have be up for the task... and at an affordable rate compared to others with less qualifications... They were.. Bridget was! She spent several hours through several days meetings with stakeholders, planning the best approach for the best outcome. When game day came, a full day session for 30 corporate employees/managers/leaders, Bridget delivered. She removed the tensions, re-established open communications, and lit a fire under the team. We work harder on our own now, produce more, and collaborate much better. People are in better spirits professional and interpersonally. Her services were a great return on investment! High Reward, No Risk, Low Cost.

Valentine is a powerful speaker. His attentiveness and concern for his audience is quite remarkable for his age. He is highly recommended by my colleagues.
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.
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
Angela is a vivacious and skilled speaker. Her clear and engaging steps to becoming a successful public speaker will inspire you to take to the stage!
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.
Jill is a thoughtful, engaging, and experienced speaker with a unique sense of humor and charm.
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!
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.
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.

Very satisfied with coaching. Exactly what I needed to get "un-stuck."
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!
I am both a Certified Speaking Coach and a speaker, so I am experienced in the speaking profession from both sides. I recognize that everyone has their own speaking style, so my goal is not to change who you authentically are but to bring out the BEST version of who you already are as a speaker. 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.
