Dave was absolutely amazing through the entire planning process up to standing under cover from the rain for the rehearsal. He is extremely welcoming, and a great speaker. He greets you like an old friend and even though we had never met prior to rehearsal I knew it was going to be a good fit because of our conversations on the phone and through email. He does his best to make the ceremony as special and individual as it can be. He is wonderful. I would recommend going to his website and listening to some of his sermons to get a feel for how great of a speaker he is. He is quick to respond to email and phone calls and gives great advice and ideas on how to make your ceremony special for you. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an memorable officiant. Morgan Duvall (June 20, 2015)

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 :)

Dave was a phenomenal preacher for our wedding ceremony. He guided us every step of the way and kept us together. The words and scripture he chose were perfect. Even when the wind didn't allow us to light our candles he still made it work. We picked the best person to do our ceremony. He deserves more than 5 stars :).

John did a wonderful job giving a motivational talk about "the importance of great customer service" during our staff meeting!! Each member of our medical team left the room feeling energized and excited to help our patients. He did a great job using real-world examples to drive home the message. Everyone could relate to his examples. John has a great sense of humor which helped capture everyone's attention. We would definitely hire him again to speak at a future meeting!

John spoke to our organization for two hours on how to be more productive and effectively deal with stress in a fast-paced, often chaotic environment. He was a very-well prepared and engaging speaker who used humor and a variety of exercises, humorous anecdotes, and incisive comments to reinforce his briefing points. -National Counterterrorism Center

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.

This is the PMIWDC review of Dr. Joel Freeman's presentation “Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy” delivered on 01/20/2015 at the Fairview Park Marriott Hotel. Of the 275 attendees, there were 155 responses to our survey. Speaker Rating (5 point scale) --------------------------------------- Speaker's Delivery: 4.70 Value/Appropriateness of the Topic: 4.63 Additionally, here are comments relevant to Joel's presentation: ------------------------------------------------------ - Great Presentation - He needs more time to talk. - Speaker is very animated - certainly kept me awake but also hard to follow his point at 8:07 pm. Lots of graphs, not much explanations on influencing different people. - Excellent speaker - Exceptional! Well done! - Speaker effectiveness off the chart! No suggestion- Amazing! Best speech in a while! - Please bring Mr. Freeman back each year. - Great speaker and topic! - Not really my style of speaker. It was too "informercialish" in beginning but better about 15 min in when we got to the "meat." My feedback as the event coordinator: ------------------------------------------------------ Joel was exceptionally easy to work with. He was flexible in tailoring his presentation to our member's needs. His visual were legible for the large ballroom. He communicated frequently with our team and showed great interest in the engagement.

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.

I have worked with Jill in a number of different ways: Jill served as a consultant and coach to an internal creative team building committee which I chaired at my work place. She brought so much value to the process, from her deep knowledge of team building practices to her thoughtful listening skills and her enthusiasm and energy level. I have also observed Jill in her capacity as Wellness Director for a public higher education facility. She recruited and prepped outside trainers so their involvement with the audiences was targeted and responsive to the strategic plan of our HR division. Jill has also functioned as the trainer herself, where she is engaging and engaged with the audience; able to couple spontaneity with a deep professional knowledge; and deeply attuned to the audience's needs. Jill is an exceptional motivational speaker and her passion and commitment to serving her audience is a delight!

Jill is passionate and has a natural talent for helping each of us discover the leader within, develop our potential and to take it to new levels. I have worked with her as a coach and have been a participant in her programs. In her coaching sessions, instead of offering a cookie cutter approach, she helped me tap into my unique values and craft my leadership presence utilizing these. I am a much more authentic leader as a result! She is also a dynamic, motivational speaker who always brings a unique perspective. She is not only charismatic but sincere in sharing her experiences, which engages and helps her audiences relate to her. She does her work with an ease that seems effortless, all the while conveying passion and professionalism. If you want an inspiring, authentic and high content speaker, then look no further! Lindita

Jill is simply a phenomenal speaker and facilitator who connects and engages quickly, sincerely and authentically with her groups!! She brings her total self to every engagement - and individuals and groups pick up on that immediately. Jill brings great insights to the table, asks great questions, makes you think and places a huge emphasis on applying the material for individual and organization growth! She does all of this in a down to earth, welcoming, friendly, energetic, fun and personable manner. She’s “real”… not “packaged”. Highly recommended!!

Vincent Barnett is the most inspirational speaker that I've seen thus far! He leads every thought and discussion with such an optimistic point of view, I believe that it is truly part of his core visions and values…he seems to live and breathe it. His story of hardship and small triumphs offer a fresh perspective and a level of reality that leaves you motivated and wanting to take action and win. Not only that, he's a standup guy and very personable, it's like you're listening to a best friend, someone you trust and believe in. It doesn't hurt that he's funny too! Absolutely one of the best!
