Kids enjoyed the show. Malik was on time, professional and did a wonderful job. I would hire him again and recommend him for others. -Private City Club Manager
Excellent speaker. She had the audience rolling in laughter from some of her humorous stories.
I came to Bren because I wanted to work on some new monologues and prepare for graduate school auditions. Bren was so generous with her resources, helping me find the right pieces for me, and helping shape them into pieces that showed my skill and personal style. After I chose the right monologues, I continued working with Bren for a few months to prepare for grad school. She was such a source of support, helping me believe in myself and my artistry, and giving me valuable insight into the world of professional acting and graduate programs. If you're looking to prepare for the next stage of your acting career, or are looking for help with any public speaking or presentation skills, I highly recommend Bren for her experience, her insight, and her generosity of spirit.
Rob's energy and passion for what he does are clear right away. He always has a positive outlook and will help you find the silver lining in every situation. When I first spoke with him, I was having some trouble being underappreciated at work. Rob offered sound advice and was always there for me when I needed him. Highly recommend Rob as a life and business coach, motivational speaker and all of the above!
Karriem is a pleasure to work with. He created an event that added value to all the participants and to the speakers who participated in the event. I look forward to the next Be Encouraged Seminar.
Just started meeting with him. I found him to be attentive, positive and knowledgeable.
Dr. Kathy performed our son’s baptism ceremony. It was such a lovely event. Dr. Kathy is kind, patient, well versed, and an excellent speaker. Our family is still talking about how personalized and special the baptism was. Thanks Dr. Kathy and God bless!
Aaron is a dynamic and energetic speaker who within minutes had our students hooked on his positive message and thought-provoking questions. He spoke to the students about believing in themselves and challenges them all to visualize their great qualities. He has also done performances and sang at our graduation ceremonies for the past two years. Not only is his motivational speaking great, but he is just a real, compassionate and caring person. His dedication to supporting youth is inspiring.
Silicon Valley is populated with exceptional people. But, even among these stars, Joanie Bigwood shines brighter and embodies an entirely new level of creative storytelling, cerebral hilarity, and audience engagement. Last summer, I hosted an event for over 100 Toastmasters and their families and friends. Toastmasters is an organization that helps people master public speaking and most of the attendees at our event were long-time members who have seen a lot of speeches. For entertainment we had a monk in full orange monk regalia who taught us a series of collaborative exercises and games, a nuclear engineer/ecstatic dancer who showed us how to do Contact Improv, Miss Ethiopia who gave an inspirational speech and led us through a Zumba session, and Joanie Bigwood who won our hearts with the most unique talk/performance of the night! Joanie wowed the crowd as she simultaneously juggled a series of balls, representing different stages of parenthood, while she gave an introspective and enlightening talk that included one of the most honest and funniest rap songs about raising kids that I have ever heard. She danced, she sang, she juggled, and she gave a speech that made me laugh and cry. No one could take their eyes off of her and at the end of the performance she got a standing ovation (from a really discerning crowd). People were still talking about her at the end of the night, wanting to know more about her and where they could go to see her perform again! Joanie Bigwood was the star of our event and I would recommend her to infinity and beyond!
Dale, Karen, and Sharon are amazing motivational speakers - funny, engaging, and smart. They weave stories into the topic that engages the audience and makes it easier to understand the information they are communicating. Ive heard them speak many times about small business development, marketing, work life balance and they are always on point and great.
When I read "I Call Myself Earth Girl" I was fascinated with the story of how a husband and wife were trying to comprehend a crazy life experience. The descriptive words hooked me and the plot reeled me in so quickly that I couldn't put it down. I just had to figure out the mystery! I must say, I didn't see what was coming, so when it did I was deeply affected. Jan Krause Greene is an amazing author, a very articulate activist for the well-being of earth and expresses her concerns about Mother Earth in such a way that you see them as your concerns too.
Michelle, was an excellent and engaging speaker. She took the time in advance to understand the challenges of the leadership team she spoke too and really engaged them in a non-threatening way. She discussed change management, in an environment going through difficult change and took the "fear" out of the discussion. I would highly recommend Michelle, as she is engaging, professional and energetic!

March of 2013 I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Jacqui Senn at the Repowering Women: Knowledge IS Power conference event with South Central Alliance of Churches. Jacqui joined me and other motivational speakers as a Keynote Speaker who's topic of address was Identifying & Surviving Abuse. Though often times this subject is challenging to tackle Jacqui did it with such grace, strength, passion, and pose until there was barely a dry eye in the house. Jacqui is a professional speaker with an empowering courageous story to share with others who have walked a mile in her shoes. I was impressed with Jacqui, her testimony, and her professionalism. If you are looking for an awe-inspiring speaker I would recommend Jacqui Senn every time.
This story is something that will change the perspective of the those who hear it, and will serve as a beacon of hope and progressive thinking.
