I trained with Adam twice a week for about a year and lost almost 100 lbs. and 10 dress sizes. In addition, Adam emailed me weekly 5 workouts I did on my own time. These were results I had never thought I'd achieve. Adam's motivation and care are what helped me stay committed. He has an energy about everything he does that helps you succeed. He's an awesome coach. I've learned more about exercise and nutrition in my time with Adam than I ever learned on my own or with any other trainer. My success is because of his motivation and coaching. He couldn't do the work for me, but with his encouragement, my weight loss was attainable. My only reason for not still being with Adam is I moved out of state or I would still be a client of Adam's.
Robert spoke to our youth at the Juvenile Detention Center and was extremely motivational. I would recommend Robert as a speaker to any audience, particularly to young people.
Donna has been providing training and coaching for our company for over 10 years. Her knowledge and expertise has improved the abilities of our staff immensely! Our trainers get higher feedback scores from audiences and this is directly attributed to Donna. Donna has also presented at our annual conference every year and audiences rave about her ability to connect with them as well as the content she provides. It is always fresh and gives them real life skills and tips to help them improve their own company operations. I would recommend Donna over many other public speakers and trainers I have encountered in my career! Sue B., NECA
I could not have been more thrilled with Derlene. She was not only an excellent speaker, but her presentation spoke volumes to the hearts of my leaders. Derlene met with me and listened to my goals of the meeting and exceeded my expectations. My leaders and I found that she spoke right to our hearts as women and helped us feel empowered, motivated, and ready to take on the world. She is such a kind, wonderful woman and her warmth and genuine care for her topics and audience shows through in her presentation. She puts so much thought into making sure that her presentation is not only providing emotional connections and breakthroughs, but also provides laughter and interactions as well. I look forward to booking her again in the future!
We couldnt have had a more impacting speaker for our Disney world annual event. Janet brought refreshing laughter as well as riveting stories that evoked tears. The result was that she touched and inspired us deeply through her engaging presentation. We were motivated to apply the practical steps to change our thinking and embrace the courage to remove obstacles. Janet delivered what she said she would as she had us spellbound with her illustrations. Her gripping stories showed us the path to success. She empowered us to defy all odds, and to remove limitations and excuses. Her message is transformational, so much so that we showed the video of her presentation several times for the benefit of those who missed the event. Nora P. Human Resources, Walt Disney World, Orlando
Deborah LeeAnn is an amazing leadership coach and speaker. Her energy, knowledge, and motivation are unparalleled. She comes from an authentic realm which is so refreshing. So many professional speakers do not "walk their talk;" unlike Deborah, who embodies what she teaches. Deborah comes from a holistic space taking in to account the mind, body, and spirit of an individual. Even in a room full of hundreds, it feels she speaks directly to you. I highly recommend Deborah LeeAnn as a motivation speaker or for your leadership development needs.
I loved him! He kept me interested the whole time! He was funny, motivational, and really inspired me! I would definitely recommend him!
Bob Ramsey is a passionate and engaging speaker whom I have known for over 4 years. I have seen him speak in a variety of venues with different audiences mostly about leadership and personal development. Through his message, his wisdom and his stories he is able to connect with any type of audience. He delivers fun, insightful and entertaining speeches that he customizes to meet the unique needs of the audience. His stories and words of wisdom come from his many years of business experience and his passion for gardening, cooking, and sailing. It's amazing how much I learned from his speech on curating customers through his personal story of growing blueberries. His stories are engaging and his research is sound. If you ever get a chance to hire Bob for one of your events, you won't be disappointed.
I found true value in what was said. After the speaker was done I felt inspired to continue on my journey towards a more successful career. I found it very rewarding.

Dr. Elise Barnett is a dynamic speaker. She is so very organized and well prepared for each speaking engagement. She puts so much effort and time preparing for her audience. She illustrates her topic in various ways making sure to enlighten as well as engage the audience. Every time she speaks she reveals how studious she is. She never leaves her audience on the same level prior to the encounter. She is anointed and appointed and delivers with boldness and confidence yet humble. I would recommend her to anyone. Thanks Dr. Elise Barnett for all your amazing work. You are awesome.
