Migdalia was my small group leader and mentor. She performed with thoughtfulness, love and care. Her words were always well thought and well spoken to add just the right encouragement and advice. She is wise, perceptive and insightful. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs support and coaching.

    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

    Don was a keynote speaker for the Human Capital Institute (HCI) and did a fantastic job! Attendees loved his dynamic stage presence and especially his research on the neuroscience of happiness. Don's content was very helpful and insightful, with simple ways everyone could incorporate his clever strategies into their organizations as well as their lives.

    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.

    Cindy is the best of the best! She is someone you just want to get to know. She handled everything so beautifully and led us through it each step of the way. Our wedding was better than we could have ever hoped for! She made the entire wedding so personal and even wrote the most incredible poem about our lives together. We are going to have it framed as a lifelong reminder! With Cindy performing our marriage, we always felt comfortable that everything was in control and would go well - and believe me, that's a great feeling! After all, your wedding is your most important day! Cindy doesn't only have a lot of experience marrying people, but she has been a speaker for years! So she is very used to talking to big crowds. This was so wonderful, because she came across so natural, she could be heard well, and really knew how to "present" the ceremony so that it all comes off without a problem. She is also great for those awkward "on the spot" moments where no one knows what to do or say. (We had one of those with my mother-in-law, but Cindy handled it beautifully!) Everyone was so pleased and very impressed. She led us through our rehearsal so we all knew what to do and what to expect. She helped us to write our vows without being intrusive or pushy. She was sooooo helpful! She organized our music for us, helped us to chose readings and just put together and overall ceremony that blew us away! Oh, and she also created our wedding bulletins! They were really awesome! I just loved them!!! I will recommend Cindy to everyone (and do). She is that on-in-a-million type of person you just hope will come into your life. We will always be grateful that she came into ours!!!!

    Vanessa was great at managing our event. We had 100 attendees. She handled everything from the hotel room block, to prepping speakers, to handling all the food, beverage, flowers, and decorations. It was great to rely on her keen eye to attention. The event was in excellent hands and I didn't have to stress with any of the details! Thank you!

    I love working with Kelsey. She is so encouraging, motivating and positive. Her training and meal plans are straight forward and easy to understand. She is an excellent coach and is always asking how she can better help you - a good trainer will just give you a plan. An excellent trainer will always constantly be helping you, asking you how they can help you, encouraging you. She isn't only a trainer, but she is your friend. ❤ I still have a ways to go, but I've learned so much from Kelsey and I'm eating right, exercising, losing fat mass and building muscles which is my goals that's she's helping me achieve.

    It has been said that I "must be experienced".I have been told my work stands out because it is 100% from my heart and soul. The audience is able to rediscover, explore, determine, define and execute a new way of perceiving and believing in themselves and their life. The gift of connecting with people is due to the honest, open and transparent way I deliver a message. I have been described as engaging, enlightening and dynamic and my presentations are priceless. I witness first hand the audience react as I speak so powerfully right to their personal experiences. My events have been "life changing"
