Dave was absolutely amazing through the entire planning process up to standing under cover from the rain for the rehearsal. He is extremely welcoming, and a great speaker. He greets you like an old friend and even though we had never met prior to rehearsal I knew it was going to be a good fit because of our conversations on the phone and through email. He does his best to make the ceremony as special and individual as it can be. He is wonderful. I would recommend going to his website and listening to some of his sermons to get a feel for how great of a speaker he is. He is quick to respond to email and phone calls and gives great advice and ideas on how to make your ceremony special for you. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an memorable officiant. Morgan Duvall (June 20, 2015)

Tom is a true professional with a talent and passion for public speaking. I hired him to help me prepare for my master thesis and a keynote presentation. He helped me to craft engaging presentations that wowed the audience. Tom is very thoughtful in his feedback and could consider the different audiences and presentation types. I highly recommend Tom. He exceeded all my expectations and I will use him again. He boosted my confidence and fine-tuned my style I passed my master’s presentation with flying colors. Hire him! You won’t be disappointed. True gem!!!

What makes a speaker successful is a combination of preparation and audience knowledge. My initial conversation with John was almost 45 minutes and was followed up with a 6-page questionnaire response. He really knew my management team and the issues we faced he addressed them spot on...in a humorous way, of course! His interactions with my manager, both before and after his presentation, also helped to personalize the message. And most importantly; he made people laugh which was my main goal in selecting him! No prior speaker has EVER received the overwhelmingly positive feedback from my staff that has been showered upon John.

Carrie was one of the best speakers I've heard in a long time. She had the perfect amount of humor and empathy weaved into her talk. I got great feedback about her from the audience afterwards.

Cathrine is absolutely, hands down, the best wedding officiant we could of had!!! I was a little nervous finding her through Thumbtack since it was my first time using the site, however I now recommend her and thumbtack to everyone I know! Cathrine officiated our wedding on September 4th, 2016! She is so professional and such a fun person to be around. She sends you a questionnaire to fill out so she can make your ceremony more personal and exactly how you want it to go. However, she goes above and beyond just officiating weddings! The DJ that we hired ending up showing up with broken equipment so we were unable to have music playing during the ceremony. I wanted to walk down the isle to the song, "A Thousand Years". Well Cathrine is full of talent and is actually a professional singer. She looked up the lyrics and started singing when I began walking down. I am not one for crying, but I broke into tears. Her voice made the entire ceremony just that much more intimate and all of our guests said how awesome it was to have live music at the ceremony. She saved the day and my Husband and I will always have that beautiful memory in our hearts! I definitely recommend you hiring Cathrine for your ceremony, the second you meet her your will feel like you have known her forever! She is absolutely a blessing sent from God and it truly a WONDERFUL person :)

To expose students to career options and inspire them to pursue research in microbiology I invited Nancy to speak to students on “The development of Biopharmaceutical Products” at Virginia State University where I taught for 15 years. I warned her in advance that it was not uncommon for students to get up and leave during a talk. I was pleasantly surprised that all students were totally absorbed and stayed for the entire time she spoke. The students found her personal and professional stories very inspiring and felt comfortable approaching her afterwards! I would highly recommend Nancy as a speaker for any group!

Jill is passionate and has a natural talent for helping each of us discover the leader within, develop our potential and to take it to new levels. I have worked with her as a coach and have been a participant in her programs. In her coaching sessions, instead of offering a cookie cutter approach, she helped me tap into my unique values and craft my leadership presence utilizing these. I am a much more authentic leader as a result! She is also a dynamic, motivational speaker who always brings a unique perspective. She is not only charismatic but sincere in sharing her experiences, which engages and helps her audiences relate to her. She does her work with an ease that seems effortless, all the while conveying passion and professionalism. If you want an inspiring, authentic and high content speaker, then look no further! Lindita

Vincent Barnett is the most inspirational speaker that I've seen thus far! He leads every thought and discussion with such an optimistic point of view, I believe that it is truly part of his core visions and values…he seems to live and breathe it. His story of hardship and small triumphs offer a fresh perspective and a level of reality that leaves you motivated and wanting to take action and win. Not only that, he's a standup guy and very personable, it's like you're listening to a best friend, someone you trust and believe in. It doesn't hurt that he's funny too! Absolutely one of the best!

This was a little bit of a risk for us since we don't normally have speakers like Mark at our convention. But it was a huge success. He had good content and the entertainment portions of his keynote definately made him the crowd favorite.

Signing up to work with Coach Clinton was one of the best things I've ever done. When I started working with Clinton, my goals were fuzzy, I was afraid to stretch myself, and I had no idea how I would break through the fog. Less than a year later, my business is exploding, I'm a sought after public speaker, and my confidence is at an all-time high. He did it for me, he can do it for you - I would recommend Clinton to ANYONE looking to take their lives and careers to the next level!

I participated in a coaching session with Jami last month. I found it to be VERY informative, enlightening, challenging, and enriching. She really helped me to look at my life and what was important to me. She helped me to "light" my way to a bigger and better life, and I am grateful for that experience. I would defiantly take more sessions from her in the future. I think she is trustworthy, experienced, educated and willing to look at the situation with fresh eyes. The session that I participated in took about 1 1/2 hr, with on going assessments and feedback. I would/will be taking more sessions with Jami!
