I haven't heard a speaker this good in a long time. We thoroughly enjoyed Carrie's talk.
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!!!
I had a few one-on-one sessions with Darrell. He is an excellent counselor, speaker and leader! I appreciate his calm demeanor and ability to help clear the clutter from your mind, and focus on the positive things in every situation.
Excellent magic tricks - kept people entertained. Good personality
Barry Bradford is a very engaging and charismatic speaker. He made several presentations to my classroom on various topics via Google Hangouts. He went above and beyond on every presentation and really engaged the students from start to finish. His speaking and storytelling skills are impeccable.
I highly endorse Michael "MVP" Jennings to be booked as a motivational Speaker at any School, Community or Private Event. I have enjoyed hearing him at a suburban Library Event, at his Booksigning Private Party and as a supportive softball Teammate. He is prompt, professional, engaging and very personable. He will get your crowd "fired up and ready to go!"
I hired Loukia to help me with my stress and overall health. Her approach is unique. She works on changing your behaviors and mindset. She's very supportive and provided me with tools to help reduce my stress and lose weight. She's not about quick fixes. She works to get you to a point where your behavior changes for the long haul. You are really doing all the work but she has this way of getting you to see through your own BS and excuses so you WANT to change. I've worked with dietitians and nutritionists before (along with personal trainers). They were good but I never really worked through my "stuff." I think every adult can use a wellness coach!
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
From the moment I first spoke with Denise, she was enthusiastic, honest and open. I could not imagine having had a better speaker for my event.
Dave Moore was an excellent and dynamic speaker, who was very well received by everyone in the room. His stories are captivating, and he delivers a very strong, positive message. He kept the room light and engaged. He has a great, magnetic personality, and people were truly inspired by his words and experiences. It was a pleasure working with Dave and his team to plan the event, and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with the Moore Motivated team again!
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.
Loren Michaels brought an amazing motivational experience to the kids at Rich South. I look forward to working with him more in the future!
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.
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.
Overall, Darlene did a great job. There was some positive feedback from some of the members of the Association.
You are your choices. Dan is an inspirational speaker and author who has a hard-hitting message that changes peoples lives. He is a quad amputee who will reach and move your audience to understand that choices and attitude determine results.
I give personal attention that get results instead of relying upon a bunch of time-consuming profiles and instruments

Ms. Smith is one of the best motivational speakers that I have met. When we appeared for a speaking engagement without students, she performed so well that we had to bring her back a second time.
