Verified review

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!!!

In mid-September, Positively Naperville received a letter to the editor from Loren Michaels Harris regarding an NPR.org story about the Ohio police release of graphic overdose photos featured on Sept. 12, 2016. As publisher of the hyper local monthly publication in a city focused on fighting addictions and drug abuse of all kinds, I was struck by Loren’s thoughtful, timely and meaningful words, especially as they related to local initiatives such as “Connect for Life,” “KidsMatter,” and Project H.E.L.P. His reference to being a motivational speaker and his never-ending story of survival prompted my wondering about a presentation to our Rotary Club of Naperville-Downtown. Our small Rotary club is always looking for 30-minute programs. Speakers are invited to present educational topics such as the one addressed in his letter. We talked, we met, Loren agreed and the date was set for Oct. 26. Though electronics failed to connect that afternoon, preventing members from viewing Loren’s video introduction, he punted ably, landed on his feet and started from the very beginning of his 54 years. The trials and tribulations that have contributed to Loren’s strength of character and determination live within an engaging story of surviving one birth mother, one adoptive mother, and 20 foster mothers. Against so many obstacles, Loren is a survivor of the foster care system who says his only source of continual healing from the scars of foster care comes from addressing the need for better protection of all children, especially from social media, neighbor to neighbor. Rotarians experienced a very compelling presentation by a man who appears to be at home with his powerful story, one that needs to be told over and over—with or without the video introduction.

Migdalia was my small group leader and mentor. She performed with thoughtfulness, love and care. Her words were always well thought and well spoken to add just the right encouragement and advice. She is wise, perceptive and insightful. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs support and coaching.

    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.

      Without a doubt, Tina is one of the most professional author representatives/agents that I have met within my professional career. She is also an effective and inspirational speaker who cares enough to share her many years of expertise, experience, and wisdom with her clients, potential clients, and all writers. She understands writers and often goes above and beyond her role as an agent. Her enthusiasm for the world of writing shines through all of her work. Everyone should be so lucky to work with Tina.

      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!
