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
Matt Roberts was fantastic at my daughter's sixth birthday party. He was excited about having such a large audience of 14 children plus several parents. He performed tricks that amazed everyone at every age group. I would definitely recommend him highly to anyone considering hiring him. He was friendly, professional & punctual. He also took command of the kids when they started getting a bit rowdy in a friendly way and they listened. The kids and adults both loved him!
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.
Excellent speaker. She had the audience rolling in laughter from some of her humorous stories.
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!
Jim Bouchard presented at the PMI Mass Bay Chapter Professional Development Day - He was our keynote speaker and conducted one of the 4 hour workshops. Feedback from participants was very positive! His presentation was relevant to project managers and they walked away feeling motivated. Jim is an engaging speaker. He connects with the audience right from the start and captures and maintains their attention through a variety of stories, statistics and by sharing his knowledge.
I've had the pleasure of hiring Diane as a speaker at a conference. Her presentation was succinct, valuable and filled with actionable items. The audiance was delighted and inspired by her.
Just started meeting with him. I found him to be attentive, positive and knowledgeable.
To whom it my concern: I had the great fortune of a serendipitous introduction to Ms. Iafrate during a marketing program to develop an outreach campaign. We had a simple phone call exchange. I hung up I said to myself “either that woman is a direct descendant of PT Barnum or I just got off the phone with one of the most authentic, sincere and dynamic women that ever came across the bow of Grab The Torch” I was so impressed, and to a certain degree intrigued and curious to meet her, I scheduled a lunch. I was delighted that it was the latter. After lunch, I knew she would be invited to speak at our 2016 Boston Institute. As the founder of a Leadership, Ethics, Empathy and Philanthropy Institute every speaker and panelist that I select must fit perfectly with our mission, so you can imagine how careful I am in the process. This was a very good decision. Ms. Iafrate was the final speaker of the day. She followed The John Hancock/Boston Marathon and WGBH/William Lowell of the Lowell Institute. The pervious speakers delivered great content, but it had been a very long day for the girls. She had been sitting in the audience surveying and getting a pulse of the day, along with the ‘temperature’ of the girls. Even the most seasoned and professional speakers find that time of day, combined with being a first-time presenter a tough and intimidating time slot. She walked on stage and in an almost unimaginable way, immediately flipped a switch unleashing excitement and engagement in a thoughtful and meaningful way. She was prepared and ready to provide a launching pad for the girls. The presentation moved along at a pace that stimulated reflection and participation, without losing them for a second. She drew them in, opened their minds to new ideas and processes. She gave them a clearer lens to view themselves and others around them. She then turned the tables and unleased them. The room was abuzz with laughter and excitement, accompanied by a purposeful call to action. The execution was flawless. I, without any reservation or hesitation wholeheartedly recommend and endorse Ms. Iafrate. I think the following statements directly from the girls are more powerful than anything I could ever say. “The way Ms. Iafrate connected with us and spoke to us like equals made me truly want to absorb everything she said. Her ability to successfully communicate her tips in a succinct and sometimes humorous manner is what makes her unforgettable. Forever leaning in” “I never thought two words (lean in) would ever have such a profound impact on me. It wasn’t the phrase, but how it was delivered to me. Ms. Iafrate open the door to a new and enlighten way to lead my life. My favorite speaker of the week at GTT” Dave Aldrich Founder and CEO Grab The Torch email@example.com

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.

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.
