She is an inspiring motivator to your child. She is warm, caring and very knowledgeable of all subjects. I would recommend her to anyone (child or adult). She not only helped my daughter with learning subjects for the ACT, but also with helpful hints and techniques. Lastly, my daughter also suffered from anxiety during testing. I'm happy to say she did not experience any anxiety when testing!!!

Jeff was an excellent speaker for our event. He got the audience laughing and engaged right away and by the end of his presentation they were hanging on every word. Easy to work with and I would highly recommend him! He's also a snappy dresser.

Loren Michaels Harris excited my school audience of teachers, therapists, social workers and paraprofessionals! ! He is a vibrant speaker that uses examples we can all relate as well as to clearly articulating his point. He mixes music, video with real world experiences that can certainly perk up an audience. His message was relevant to our needs and he does his homework. Not only was he a "Motivational" speaker, but we all can walk away with something that can be applied in our everyday lives in and out of the workplace. My staff is requesting that he return mid-year for the "boost" they need to motivate and inspire them to assist in completing a successful school year! Double thumbs up for Loren! Outstanding!

      I stumbled across Connie's site via google while looking for inspirational quotes. She had a video series called "Coffee with Connie." These motivational videos were exactly what I needed to start my day. I found myself logging in every morning to start my day. Thanks for sharing your experiences!

      Century College engaged Jim and Ellen with ImprovTalk as kenotes speakers for a staff development day. It was an excellent event, interactive and hitting the mark on the prinicpals we wanted to convey in the training experience. I'm not sure employees saw it as training as it was so much fun, but I know they learned alot about opening themselve up to new ways of interacting with our students. A true success, thank you!

      I hired Patrick Donohue to speak as part of the Glenbard Parent Series: GPS Navigating Healthy Families. Pat did a great job connecting with the audience and providing practical study and life skill tips for high school parents. Pat combines the motivational skills of an athletic coach, with command of a great teacher and the insight of a parent to provide a presentation that is both informative and engaging. I also hired Pat to work with student leaders. With students, Pat is energetic, interactive, funny and challenging. He pushes students to think about real issues and to become their best selves. If you hire Pat for any audience, you will be hiring a speaker who is engaging, well prepared and will make your event a success

        John was excellent to work with in every facet. He was quick to respond and engaging in the process leading up to his presentation, and his engagement (I wouldn't call it a "speech", as there was so much audience participation) was excellent. I would highly recommend.

        Without a doubt, Tina is one of the most professional author representatives/agents that I have met within my professional career. She is also an effective and inspirational speaker who cares enough to share her many years of expertise, experience, and wisdom with her clients, potential clients, and all writers. She understands writers and often goes above and beyond her role as an agent. Her enthusiasm for the world of writing shines through all of her work. Everyone should be so lucky to work with Tina.

        While working with a life coach, you can expect to confront issues that have been holding you back and preventing you from creating a reality you love to be in. As uncomfortable as confrontation can be, it’s often necessary for healing. Recognizing your issues, strengths, and weaknesses is a first step to wholeness and can provide invaluable guidance while on the path to living the life of your dreams. I have been a client of Mija's for over a year now and I can say that those uncomfortable situations have allowed me to stop seeing myself as the victim. Her guidance and motivation has given me the strength to change my life for the better. The change can be seen by me and those around me. The investment in me was the best thing I did for myself.

        Received a tremendous amount of awesome feedback from my employees. It is not unusual for people to still be talking about this after a day, but people were still talking about this the next week and they are still talking! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
