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.

Jeff was an excellent speaker for our event. He got the audience laughing and engaged right away and by the end of his presentation they were hanging on every word. Easy to work with and I would highly recommend him! He's also a snappy dresser.

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

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!

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!!!

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!

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!!!!

I stumbled across Connie's site via google while looking for inspirational quotes. She had a video series called "Coffee with Connie." These motivational videos were exactly what I needed to start my day. I found myself logging in every morning to start my day. Thanks for sharing your experiences!
