In addition to being an author and speaker, JC is a comic and a funny one at that - a true "triple threat" for keeping audiences engaged.
I had an opportunity to be in one of his speaking engagements and I am very impressed of how much I was able to learn from him and how good he was working with the crowd, getting them engaged and motivated. He was inspiring, encouraging and very positive.
Soon after meeting Derrick his gift of writing became obvious. We had a hearty and meaningful discussion about writing client success stories in a way "to serve multiple purposes" in the social services field. I asked him if he would be willing to put his beliefs into a training document. Without hesitation he agreed. This tutorial, as he described it, is still used today to encourage, teach and motivate staff to look for the opportunities to share experiences in a way to engage and captivate a variety of audiences. ~Mary
I would like to add that her professionalism goes beyond the norm of what I was use to receiving. A very engaging and detail oriented full body session and experience. Wishing you great success.

August 19, 2009 Ms. Chantrise Sims 9th Grade Academy Coordinator Westlake High School 2370 Union Road, S.W. Atlanta, Georgia 30331-8099 Dear Ms. Sims: It is with great pleasure that I recommend Anthony A. Smith for the Westlake High School 9th Grade Academy Guest Lecture Series. Mr. Smith was referred to me in July 2009 during the 9th Grade Summer Transition Program from a colleague who was impressed by his remarkable presentation. I had previously scheduled daily guest speakers for the Jumpstart to Success Program; however, I had a last minute cancellation. I called Mr. Smith and he was gracious enough to rearrange his schedule to fill in for our guest speaker. He arrived during a severe weather storm and a consequent power outage. Mr. Smith delivered the most powerful and thought provoking message to 145 rising 9th grade students in the gymnasium, without lights, air conditioning or a microphone. His delivery was as unique and captivating as his message was relevant to each of the students. He was able to secure and maintain their attention and interest throughout his coaching session/lecture. He left an indelible impression on the students that day and I look forward to bringing Mr. Smith back to Mays High School to speak to the entire 9th grade class of over 440 students. Mr. Smith would be an asset to your guest lecture series, and I am happy to give him my wholehearted endorsement. Sincerely, Avis R. Eichelberger 9th Grade Coordinator
