I have seen MANY speakers in my time and very few actually leave a lasting impression. Erika Gilchrist sets the bar for the professional speaker. With an acute command of whatever subject she's speaking about and an unbreakable connection with her audience, Erika delivers like no other. Dynamic, funny, serious, bombastic and creative, she leaves you wanting more but never leaves you unfulfilled! Don't hesitate. Hire her NOW!
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 had the pleasure of inviting Walter to speak at our National Youth Conference (National Inspirational Youth Convention - NIYC) in Chicago, IL in December of 2013. The NIYC boasts an average audience size of 800-1,000 attendees annually. Over the course of the three day event Walter was one of our featured plenary session leaders presenting each evening to a group of 250 youth between the ages of 12-24 years of age on leadership, making good life choices and the importance of realizing their potential and doing everything in their power to be the best version of themselves. His energy was infectious and the youth were quickly drawn to him as he was extremely relatable and brutally honest while being authentic to who he is and the message he was there to deliver. He was extremely professional and refreshingly flexible throughout the planning process and during the conference. I would highly recommend booking him.
Connie was very motivating and inspirational when speaking at a local event for the romeoville chamber of commerce. It's very exciting and uplifting when women uplift other women and Connie is a great example!

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
They were one of our guest speakers for our event and they were outstanding very personable. Definitely would do a repeat.
Fantastic motivational speaker, truthful and understanding.
