I came to see Laura to work on public speaking skills but soon realized I had fears and anxieties - even physical symptoms - speaking up just in professional meetings and being in social situations. I realized I had lost my self-confidence and comfort being with people in reality due to too much time in virtual contact - on my phone or computer, etc. Now, I look forward to speaking in public again, going to meetings to challenge and feel the return of my confidence -- but also the good feeling it is to be in real contact with people and not just through text messages and emails. Through our sessions, I realized it was just a temporary loss due to bad habits I let develop.

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.

Michael is an excellent and engaging speaker. His topics are timely, well researched and full of insight that will allow you to take your team to the next level. He goes beyond what you expect a speaker to be and energizes the audience to take action. I would suggest that anyone who is looking to find a speaker who inspires, looks no further than Michael.

Paul is one of the most authentic speakers I've been able to experience. His story of Go-Giver. Building a culture of excellence is impressive. A first hand witness to what qualities make up true leaders. Paul shares in detail what it takes to build a culture of excellence which leads to record setting results. It is a true pleasure to give Paul Anderson my highest recommendation as a keynote speaker. He will prepare, inspire and deliver in a very humble way. - Ed Quinlan, President of Corporate Alliance

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!!!!

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.

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!

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.
