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. 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

He thinks outside the box and provides me with the tools needed to run a successful business. He also has helped with me with various strategies regarding my business card, website, advertising etc. I have also attended a seminar taught by Glenn which was fantastic.

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.

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.

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.

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!
