Jen spoke to our honor band comprised of 250 students from across the US that was marching in the Thanksgiving Day Parade. From our first contact via email to first phone conversation, she really listened to what we were looking for. It was obvious she wanted to make sure she could meet our needs and wasn't just looking to take the job for money. On site, she was prompt, very friendly and rolled with the punches when hotel AV was less than stellar. She really held the student's attention, was interactive, and I saw tons of them taking notes. Our past speakers have been specific to musician leadership and very high energy bordering on frantic/crazy to keep students' attention. Jen presented lessens more on character and challenging yourself that the students could apply to band and to their personal lives. Her style was well paced and proved you don't have to talk a mile a minute if your message connects. I saw many of them come up and hug her, ask for autographs, and just thank her for making them think differently. We would highly recommend her. Her lessons can be tailored to your needs and everyone will take away something no matter position or age.
Mr Yeager spoke at our Law Enforcement conference about School Safety. He was able to speak to us for 4 hours and never lost our interest. Mr Yeager is very professional and very knowledgeable in the subjects he speaks about. He has great passion, I would highly recommend his services.
I hired Karen to speak to a group of working ladies. Very inspiring.
I gave Dennis a true challenge - Prepare me for a meeting at work that would require I present myself as well as work I had compiled for a very high profile project. The audience would include top officers of my company. I have a very debilitating affliction - I cannot introduce myself or speak about myself in these settings. The challenge was exacerbated by the fact that I called Dennis on a Wednesday and the meeting was scheduled in two days. Bottom line is - one session had me on my way and a followup session the next day enabled me to perform like a polished public speaker. Thanks again Dennis.
I had a wonderful experience working with Shalon. She was able to revise my final doctoral project to both APA and University guidelines with near perfection and has an incredible eye for detail. This project entailed extensive formatting revisions, and because the project was so high-stakes for me, I had requested consistent communication. Shalon was incredibly responsive, had excellent communication skills and was completely professional. I truly could not have been more pleased with the final product. My paper was approved by the University and has moved on to publication. It is quite challenging to find a professional who is well-versed in APA guidelines as well as have the ability to integrate specific University guidelines to produce an acceptable final product prepared for publication. Shalon was able to do this under time constraints and completely honored our contractual guidelines. I feel completely confident recommending her services to others who have high expectations for their finished product. From start to finish, she is a complete professional.
The need for confidence, resiliency and stress management are huge for realtors. Between housing market fluctuations, the economy and the sales cycle, it can often be feast or famine and realtors who aren't positive, have realistic optimism and tenacity aren't going to last. Monique spoke at our sales conference and did a fantastic job. She educated us on brain-science and emotional intelligence and why we struggle and then taught us easy tools and techniques to overcome it. If you are looking for an engaging, funny and professional speaker, Monique should be your next call.

David Nazario is very inspiring and I believe he gave many students that were in attendance motivation to start making those very important small steps towards their goals and dreams. His life and continuous work are an example of hard-work, dedication, and most importantly the belief that greatness is within us all.
Pastor Stef is the ultimate professional, and has an innate ability to relate and motivate people. It's not everyday that you hear a speaker that can be so profound while yet remain practical and even make you laugh while gaining a plethora of insight. I'd highly recommend him to speak and engage with people on all levels.
She is an amazing motivational speaker. I have attended two seminars where she was the speaker and I have never witnessed an audience, both times, so captivated. I would recommend her anytime.
We invited Leslie to conduct a teaching workshop for our annual faculty retreat. She was fantastic! She was clear and engaging.

How I got my children to pursue careers that would enhance their abilities to get out into the world to become successful? I can motivate most children to become the best that they can be.
