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!
Marala has always demononstrated a strong personal drive for excellence in whatever endeavor to which she commits . She achieves excellence conducting her activities in a professional and confidential manner. Her listening skills to those she is relating to are first rate. She is a learner, good organizer, planner, and demonstrates loyalty with patience. When difficult options are faced and decisions need to be made, Maral Horan is one person that is an invaluable person to have on your team and in your corner because she can see the alternative options clearly and always recommends ethical solutions to challenging issues. Marala served as my Executive Assistant when I was CEO of a corporate entity that went through a financial turnaround in the St. Louis, centeral mid-west and upper south. We worked together for five years. She is always on time and stays with the task until it is done producing high quality work in every situation. In the business circumstances we faced her performance could not have been improved and as I observe her performance subsequent to my moving on from that position I find her consistant professional and educational growth qualifies her to be a greater asset to anyone seeking her assistance at this time or in the future.
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've had the pleasure of getting to know Dixie for many years as both a speaker and coach & consultant. Dixie is an incredibly engaging speaker, delivering powerful and practical wisdom from the stage. Audiences should expect to walk away re-energized with clarity. She has an abundance of experience working with people and companies delivering deeply meaningful insight and transformation. Working with her as a coach & consultant is intense, she doesn't shy away from asking the tough questions but always supportive and committed to helping you achieve your business (and personal) goals.
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
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.
Desiree Jackson of Prime International Consulting is an all-around wonderful business consultant, trainer and motivator. She came into our company WCS and made a total turn around that not only increased the efficiency of our operations but increased revenues by 20%. While we have been in business for more than 20 years, she was able to analyze and revamp our business plan and business strategy to compete in today’s market. She also improved our policies and procedures providing opportunities for untapped sources of revenue. Finally, she developed our new training program and came as a motivational speaker to encourage our staff towards to benefits of change. I whole heartedly endorse Desiree Jackson and Prime International and would recommend them to anyone looking to increase profitability in their business.
Probably one of the best speakers we've had in the nine years I've worked for the company. Still getting compliments both on how good it was, and for trying something different.
