My company recently hired Mea Austin as the Keynote Speaker for our annual user conference. She was great! Mea took the time to understand our business and focused her presentation to the needs of our clients. She is an energetic, entertaining and motivational speaker that kept our clients glued to their seats the entire session.
Amazing motivational speaker! Will have you laughing, crying, and leaving feeling empowered. There is never a dull moment when she is leading a conference.
I haven't heard a speaker this good in a long time. We thoroughly enjoyed Carrie's talk.
In October 2011, over two days, Michele presented eleven lectures on accessibility to the members of Alexandria, Virginia's City Council and to each department of City government as well as to invited community leaders. She captivated the hearts and minds of everyone who heard her, and as the word spread about her expertise, we saw standing-room only crowds. Her sense of humor had everyone chuckling as well as learning, especially when she convinced our Vice Mayor to participate in her lectures. The feedback was full of gratitude for the knowledge she imparted to the police, fire, city planning, and business leaders. Several local associations made immediate plans to bring her back for additional work. The Commission on Persons with Disabilities was proud to sponser Michele and grateful for the successful series of lectures.

Seville knows what he is talking about. His motivation and encouragement speaks volumes because he practices what he preaches! He definitely walks the walk and talks the talk! He doesn't have you do anything that he wouldn't do.
Lindsey Roy is a heartwarming, inspiring, and motivating speaker. Her story of overcoming personal hardships to become the person she is today will touch you and make you look in the mirror and know anything is possible. Highly recommended!!
I was a high school senior, looking for a speaker. I didn't have much direction on what our school group wanted. I found Karen here on thumbtack, and she responded almost immediately. Her price was very reasonable and she worked with us for our budget. I talked to her multiple times on the phone and she was extremly nice to work with, she guided me on what step I needed to do next and checked up on me to make sure everything was going well. I would highly recommend Karen for any type of event she is a wonderful speaker and person.
Sylvia was great! She worked with us to develop a workshop specific to our needs. It was a two hour workshop/presentation for 25 people. The presentation was very thought provoking and was beneficial in both our professional and personal lives. I would definitely recommend Sylvia's workshops to others. She will be a repeat at ours!
JJ was a phenomenal speaker whose message really resonated with our crowd (High School Graduation Ceremony). He was prepared, on time and provided a clear and concise message to everyone in attendance. We had multiple families express their gratitude after the event for his speech and the message he delivered. I would highly recommend JJ to anyone looking for a dynamic public speaker capable of captivating a room.
Rachel was very enthusiastic and relatable. The girls were very energized by her speech. The speech was incredibly motivating for them.
He did a really nice job at our conference. Got people involved, had a good message, and very funny. He got a standing ovation from a group that we've had trouble pleasing in the past. Could not have asked for more.
Lisa is amazing. She has helped me navigate through personal and professional crisis. She is definitely my guru and is like a personal Jiminy Cricket. My family has even complemented me on my new outlook on life. I will continue to use her because this is the best investment in myself that I could have made.
I enjoyed Allen’s keynote speech last week. His energy was electric and his message was powerful as well. There’s not many speakers that speak from the heart nowadays and it’s always refreshing to see one in action. I’ve done a little digging into his 21 Day Fitness System as well and it’s pretty sound. He’s an overall well rounded guy.
Working with Richard was an absolute pleasure from the first correspondence to the keynote delivery and even the face time after the program. Richard is a committed and passionate artist and speaker whose experience, background, humor and life experience all intertwine perfectly to form one of the best motivational speeches I've seen in a long time. He captivated the youth in our audience, had staff, business leaders and educators laughing throughout and produced an exceptional piece of art that will hang proudly in the lobby of our non-profit agency. We highly recommend Richard to anyone in search of a talented, professional, insightful motivational keynote speaker. Thank you Richard, for being the highlight of our banquet!
Outstanding if your looking to get motivated in a major way. Tom will get it done. Helping me bring my product to market. Very knowledgeable, professional and has your best interests at heart each and every session! 5 stars!
Roland Commack is one of the most inspiring people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. His story touches my heart deeply. It is amazing to hear Roland speak about the struggles he has had to bear to achieve so many successes. Listening to him renews a sense of hope and faith for me. I can't say enough good things about this humble yet powerful man. I would recommend to anyone that they give him the opportunity to present what I feel is one of the most inspiring stories I have ever heard. How Roland's faith and determination has persevered is something everyone could definitely benefit from. Lana Hayes

I am a former college football coach where I coached our athletes to give their best performances on every play. This resulted in our winning two conference championships. My programs make neural science fun and understandable and also includes best practices of elite performers. I teach people how to focus, how to influence what they pay attention to and how to create habits that will instinctively generate the actions necessary to reach their goals. There is a core of personal accountability and I'm known as "The Accountability Guy". I certainly build a case for the importance of taking responsibility and being the source versus going victim and blaming. I customize for every group and when hired I will ask about your goals, your systems and metrics, your KPI's, your daily activities and then your obstacles. I incorporate this into the presentation. This is an entertaining, high energy and fun presentation with immediately useful and relevant content. I can customize to any amount of time. I am the only speaker who presents like I do. No one else has the background that I have. I've worked with Nobel Prize winner Roger Sperry while I was a head football and wrestling coach at Cal Tech in Pasadena, CA. I had the opportunity to refine and simplify these techniques with Steve Mariucci, fellow assistant coach while at Cal State Fullerton. Steve is a former head coach for the San Francisco 49'ers and Detroit Lions and is now a broadcaster. I don't emphasize this unless you want me to. I also coached an Olympic Gold Medal winner in Greco Roman Wrestling, Jeff Blatnick, who won the gold in the 1984 Olympics.
Connecting you with people, opportunity, and profit. MINDSET AND CONNECTING: I know that these are the two keys to reaching and then exceeding goals in business today. Breaking into bigger markets, launching new initiatives, navigating day-to-day challenges, or creating change of any kind can be daunting. Being successful requires stepping outside comfort zones and connecting with the right people and organizations. Since 2008, I have worked with businesses of all sizes and their executives and associations in a variety of industries, sharing insider strategies and tactics to succeed in business and life. Even with that, I don’t believe that one size fits all….for anything. Speaking topics are customized to focus on the key needs of every audience with a tailored message that addresses their pain points and their amazing (but often hidden) opportunities. I don’t do cookie cutter talks that you would swear you’ve heard before (but maybe with a different title). I don’t assume that every audience member – whether in an auditorium of hundreds or in an intimate workshop setting – has the same goals, opportunities or challenges. Every audience is unique. Whether it’s a keynote, breakout session, workshop or leadership retreat, I always do my homework to ensure your event is a success. This is about you and your organization getting the results you need and the outcomes you desire. As you read more on the Program Topics page on my website, you will see that I am the ideal speaker to have your audiences asking for more. 99% of my clients came through other places than Thumbtack so you won't find reviews here. What is the specific challenge you are dealing with or the goals you are looking to tackle? There are three ways to work together: ● CUSTOMIZED TRAINING Goals, challenges, and opportunities do not come in a one-size-fits-all package. I create dynamic atmospheres in groups small and large, from company departments to leadership teams and national associations. Through custom-designed, on-site workshops and discussions, we get to the heart of the issues and design immediate action plans. These sessions will leave you energized, engaged and ready to take action. ● COACHING Are currently leading a team, in business development, career transition, or pursuing the solopreneur route? That is where an outside perspective can help you gain the clarity you need to produce amazing results quickly and effectively. Whether it is differentiating you from your competition or creating profitable strategic relationships, I will help you focus on the main issues, eliminate distractions and hold you accountable to reach your goals. Yes, we get in the weeds together. ● KEYNOTES AND BREAKOUT SESSIONS With over ten years experience as keynote and breakout session speaker, my programs are known for a-ha moments, highlights of humor and tactical takeaways. More than motivation, my customized approach and message leave audiences with insights and practical strategies they can immediately apply. Speaking topics are customized to focus on the critical needs of every audience with a tailored message that addresses their pain points and their amazing (but often hidden) opportunities. MOST REQUESTED TOPICS INCLUDE..... THE POTENTIAL DIFFERENCE ► Putting Performance Mindset Into Action YOUR CONNECTING ADVANTAGE ► The Networking Shift ► LinkedIn Know How ► Your Personal Brand Advantage ► Business Development in the Connection Economy DELIVERY: My most requested topics are available as keynote talks, breakout sessions, webinars, 1/2 day private workshops and full-day intensives. Which one is best for your organization or event?
