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 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.

        Dr. Matt Frahm is an incredibly engaging speaker. I've been to several of his talks (mostly on topics related to health and wellness) and always come away feeling much more informed, motivated, and with an actionable plan in mind. He's fun to listen to and will leave participants feeling inspired - and also motivated to truly act on what they've learned. Highly recommend!

        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!

        About

        Maureen Muldoon is a sought after spiritual counselor, speaker, creative life coach and corporate consultant. She has empowered and inspired thousands to find their authentic voice and claim and create and commit to living the life of their dreams. She has had the privilege of coaching both the developing artists as well as internationally recognized names. Her journey began in New York City, where as a young actress working in stage and TV, she facilitated and taught small groups on acting technique and how to breaking into the business without losing yourself. Her own career took her to LA where she spent 20 years in Hollywood as an accomplished writer, producer, director and star of TV and film. It was in California that she firmly developed her powerful intuitive ability to assist artists and became known as a creative midwife. As her coaching clientele grew, she slowly surrendered her own acting career to be more fully present to helping others soar. Her attention turned to adding spiritual technologies to her offerings, and in 2005, she became a fully licensed spiritual counselor. Her license and training from the United Centers for Spiritual Living is a nationally recognized certification. In 2008, she was hired by World Ministry of Prayer in LA to support individuals from around the world by using the healing power of prayer. In 2009, she was hired as the Director of Sacred Circles for the Bodhi Spiritual Center in Chicago where she helped groom and support new spiritual leaders. Under her watch, the program tripled its size in 2 years. Her philosophy is steeped in the idea that spirituality and creativity are synonymous. Authenticity and humor are the pillars of her ministry. She is the creator of a monthly story-and-song night that provides the community with an opportunity to experience the healing nature of stories. Along with supporting artists, she is passionate about grooming and mentoring leaders and teachers. For the past 2 decades, she has established women's sacred circles across the country, specifically New York, New Jersey, Texas, Virginia, Chicago and LA. Maureen Muldoon is available for counseling by appointment in person or on the phone. She offers corporate consultation to help build authentic communication, conscious growth structures, productive processes and greater integrity in the work space. As a teacher, she has facilitated workshops and classes across the country to audiences as large at 8,000 people. Maureen is an avid student and sought after teacher of A Course in Miracles & Religious Science. Her music, stories, meditations, theatre productions and prayers have been entertaining and inspiring folks for the past 2 decades.
