Ms. Taurea was the guest speaker at one of our meetings and she did a great job. She was very motivating and uplifting. She was also very knowledgable, had helpful tips on creating vision boards and she was also straight to the point. I will be looking forward to hearing her speak at other events in the near future.

I originally connected with Ria Story through her role as sponsor/moderator of the Auburn, Alabama, Leadercast simulcast event in 2013. After participating in Leadercast again in 2014, I arranged for Ria to speak to the Business and Professional Women's department of the Auburn Woman's Club. Ria's presentation on time management was enthusiastically received, as her talk was rich in content, and her speaking style was comfortable and accessible. After a third year participating in Leadercast and benefitting from Ria's strong event moderation skills, I was privileged to hear Ria speak at the Mayor's Proclamation Signing event for Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month in 2015. At this event, Ria bravely shared some of her own personal story, and her presentation was powerful. Ria Story's comfortable and polished speaking style, as well as her sincerity and energy, make her an excellent speaker!

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to listen to Duane speak to 70 of my wife's Upward Bound students. Not only was I impressed, I was truly astonished. Never in a million years would I except someone could hold a group of 70 teenagers attention for 3.5 hours, but Duane did just that. Initially he was only suppose to speak from 6pm-7pm, but the students were so tuned in and excited about what he had to say, once they began asking questions 7pm turned into 8pm and eventually someone had to step in and say "Ok, last question". Had they not done so, I am confident Duane and the students would have been both perfectly happy continuing the Q&A for another two hours! As if that wasn't enough, Duane then took the time to speak to each student individually and write a sincere personal note inside the cover of their books. Some of them waited in line for over an hour for this, and when it was all said and done it was 9:30pm. Several times the counselors offered to take anyone who didn't want to wait back to their rooms, but no one budged... Everyone wanted there chance to talk to Duane. If you are looking for a speaker who will inspire you to be sensational, then this is your guy. Also, his book "The Sensational Salesman" is hands down one of the greatest books I've ever got hands on. If anyone is interested in improving the quality of your life, in all aspects, not just business, I highly recommend checking it out.

Meet Terri Clay! She is inspiring, empowering and a beacon of hope to everyone she encounters. Born into a middle-class, close-knit family with core Christian values and morals, Terri Clay understands the need to obey God and follow His instructions. It was through adversity and disobedience that she learned the significance of life lessons her family instilled in her. At the tender age of 14, Terri began to make poor choices in her life, which left her alone to navigate through the harsh realities of life based on her decisions. By the age of 21, she was a mother of 4 children, homeless and a single parent who endured a traumatic season of domestic violence. But Terri fought back by trusting in the Lord and relying upon the teachings she learned from her close-knit family. She went back to school, gained a nursing degree and began to change her projected destiny. In the midst of working with troubled teenagers in a psychiatric hospital, Terri recognized her purpose: to inspire others! Today, Terri’s primary assignment is to encourage others and let them know that God is always with them. With God by their side, they can overcome anything. Terri works with others to help them find their God-ordained purpose in life. It is her desire that people fulfill their destiny, and they can accomplish much by obeying God and following His instructions. After all, she is a living witness that God is real!
