Pastor Dave Zuchelli was the perfect minister to marry my husband and I at our lakeside ceremony. I have been at other friends' weddings and seen ministers mess up important names, completely change the order of the ceremony and more, but I had no doubt in my mind that Pastor Zuchelli would lead the ceremony just as we had discussed. He is an eloquent speaker who is sincere in his words and also knows how to make the ceremony funny and light when the bride and groom are nervous! He also kindly stood in the rain and mist with us at both our rehearsal and the ceremony because we wanted the outdoor ceremony so badly! Many thanks to Pastor Dave for making our ceremony one we will never forget :)

Coach Lynn wrote a resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile for me. She was able to identify my strengths and highlighted them well. She also provided motivational coaching throughout my job search and interviewing process. I highly recommend her services to job seekers.

Verified review

John was everything we were looking for in a motivational speaker. He talked about servant leadership and contrasted it with classical management (top-down), all the while using stories and humor. Many of our attendees told me privately that they liked John and thought he did a good job. I recommend him for others.

Daniel is very detail orientated. He takes the time to explore all aspects of his clients needs. He is motivating, personable and the most caring trainer I have ever worked with. He is a wealth of knowledge about health as well as physical training. He thoroughly researches anything that he doesn't already know. You are lucky to have him as your holistic coach.

Dr Joel is incredibly talented, worked within my budget and gave me the best service. He is a great motivational speaker, I thank God for meeting him. Everybody in his training class was happy and highly motivated. His training session was rated the best of my 7days program by my group from Nigeria. He is awesome, I would love to work with again and again.

Lucas gave the keynote address at my graduating class's commencement in the spring of 2008. His poise and leadership on stage were incredibly inspiring, and the value he provided through his motivational words were second to none. Lucas has a way of bringing a listener in not just with his words, but with all of the intangle expressions of effective communication that are innate only to the most gifted presenters. I'd recommend Lucas for any speaking engagement. He will bring energy, command a presence, and speak with eloquence!

Professional storyteller Gary Lloyd spoke to nearly 50 American Association of University Women and guests at a 60th anniversary luncheon at the lovely 2941 Restaurant in Falls Church in September. Everyone was entranced by Gary's delightful presentation of eight incredible, savvy, little-known women from different time periods and parts of the world. It was a most fitting topic for the AAUW women - and Gary's storytelling ability was much appreciated.

I highly recommend Gaurav at Knowledge Kinetics as a career and life coach. He is a keen observer of human interaction and is adept at reading character and motivations. His accumulated experience and education allow him to quickly assess skill sets and key strengths/opportunities at the individual level, helping his clients grow and progress professionally. Gaurav begins by investing time in open listening and observation, and quickly absorbs critical information and details. Once having formed thoughts and opinions, Gaurav is a thoroughly engaging communicator, whether addressing a single client or a large group. He effectively shares his ideas and recommendations with a personalized and customized approach that is always on target, leaving listeners inspired!   A few examples of Gaurav's coaching and consulting expertise and its impact on my own trajectory include the following: By leveraging Gaurav’s professional expertise transforming qualitative and quantitative data into insightful findings, I was able to bring added value to my larger team. This greatly benefited my organization from a business perspective, and allowed me to grow personally and professionally.   From a consulting perspective, Gaurav also worked effectively with senior leadership, and staff at all levels, to collaborate and advise on effective solutions to problem issues as an internal advisor. His sought-after counsel was a key input in organizational decisions. Whether helping guide you personally on your career and life journey, or inspiring larger teams in achieving critical organizational goals, Gaurav will prove an indispensable asset.

The best part of the coaching was breaking concepts down into meaningful functional examples. Her professionalism was excellent with high motivation and a contagious enthusiasm. She was extremely thorough and helped me structure a valuable way ahead. Each skill I worked on applies to many other personal aspects of my work. I look forward to the next sessions.

This was a little bit of a risk for us since we don't normally have speakers like Mark at our convention. But it was a huge success. He had good content and the entertainment portions of his keynote definately made him the crowd favorite.

Signing up to work with Coach Clinton was one of the best things I've ever done. When I started working with Clinton, my goals were fuzzy, I was afraid to stretch myself, and I had no idea how I would break through the fog. Less than a year later, my business is exploding, I'm a sought after public speaker, and my confidence is at an all-time high. He did it for me, he can do it for you - I would recommend Clinton to ANYONE looking to take their lives and careers to the next level!
