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.

Pastor Dave Zuchelli was the perfect minister to marry my husband and I at our lakeside ceremony. I have been at other friends' weddings and seen ministers mess up important names, completely change the order of the ceremony and more, but I had no doubt in my mind that Pastor Zuchelli would lead the ceremony just as we had discussed. He is an eloquent speaker who is sincere in his words and also knows how to make the ceremony funny and light when the bride and groom are nervous! He also kindly stood in the rain and mist with us at both our rehearsal and the ceremony because we wanted the outdoor ceremony so badly! Many thanks to Pastor Dave for making our ceremony one we will never forget :)

John was everything we were looking for in a motivational speaker. He talked about servant leadership and contrasted it with classical management (top-down), all the while using stories and humor. Many of our attendees told me privately that they liked John and thought he did a good job. I recommend him for others.

Dr Joel is incredibly talented, worked within my budget and gave me the best service. He is a great motivational speaker, I thank God for meeting him. Everybody in his training class was happy and highly motivated. His training session was rated the best of my 7days program by my group from Nigeria. He is awesome, I would love to work with again and again.

Sophia is a talented experience coach and I love working with her. She patiently listens, asks profound questions, leads her session in a manner of self-discovery and exploration. Somehow magically I often arrive to my own solutions with her gentle professional guidance. In a couple of last sessions, Sophia helped me create my dream calendar that I love. It was scary and overwhelming to start setting goals at first. But Sophia masterfully laid out an easy-to-follow plan that turned this project into an inspiring session. Now full with dreams and with a clear vision ahead of me I'm ready to start the New Year, all thanks to Sophia! Highly recommend!

I highly recommend Gaurav at Knowledge Kinetics as a career and life coach. He is a keen observer of human interaction and is adept at reading character and motivations. His accumulated experience and education allow him to quickly assess skill sets and key strengths/opportunities at the individual level, helping his clients grow and progress professionally. Gaurav begins by investing time in open listening and observation, and quickly absorbs critical information and details. Once having formed thoughts and opinions, Gaurav is a thoroughly engaging communicator, whether addressing a single client or a large group. He effectively shares his ideas and recommendations with a personalized and customized approach that is always on target, leaving listeners inspired!   A few examples of Gaurav's coaching and consulting expertise and its impact on my own trajectory include the following: By leveraging Gaurav’s professional expertise transforming qualitative and quantitative data into insightful findings, I was able to bring added value to my larger team. This greatly benefited my organization from a business perspective, and allowed me to grow personally and professionally.   From a consulting perspective, Gaurav also worked effectively with senior leadership, and staff at all levels, to collaborate and advise on effective solutions to problem issues as an internal advisor. His sought-after counsel was a key input in organizational decisions. Whether helping guide you personally on your career and life journey, or inspiring larger teams in achieving critical organizational goals, Gaurav will prove an indispensable asset.

Al Betz is one of the icons in our industry. He is an amazing speaker, incredible encourager and overall outstanding person. Al came to speak at the Texas Court Reporters Association Annual Convention in June of this year (2015) and did an absolutely phenomenal job. I cannot say enough about how big his heart is for the court reporting profession!

Rev. Troy Denson is a delightful spirit and an encouraging Christian minister. He is of sound character; works diligently and patiently when carrying out liturgical services for the church. Rev. Denson has officiated our annual church officers installation; he has catechized ministers for ordination; and he has preached inspiring sermons when called upon. Most important, Troy is ecumenically diverse, in that he is knowledgeable of the various Christian denominational methods, and offers his services accordingly. It is a pleasure having Rev. Denson available when needed. - Rev. Charles Y. Davis, Jr.

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.

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!

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!

About

My Attitude Overcomes... - Born into an abusive relationship, both my parents were drug addicts and alcoholics. - Growing up homeless, dirt poor, abandoned by all family, abused mentally and physically. - Dealing with being bullied due to: my weight, being poor, my appearance and my mothers alcoholism. - Being mentally and physically abused by my stepfather. - Bounced around 10 foster homes within a 3 year period. - Losing my father to cirrhosis of the liver at 17, my mother to AIDS related complications at 28 and my only true best friend to cancer at 31. Yet despite all this and overcoming near addiction myself, I am part of less than 1% of people. Less than 1% of children in foster care obtain a bachelors degree and have never been arrested. My pains' purpose was to help people today overcome their issues. There are very few positive examples for foster children as most become victims of the system when they become adults. There are few people who overcame being bullied to set positive examples for those going through it now. My story is about overcoming odds, overcoming the situation you are currently in no matter how bleak and impossible it may seem. My ability to relate makes my message more sincere. How can you talk to people about being bullied, being poor, feeling different if you have never been there? I have learned that pain does have a purpose and mine was to offer hope and inspiration to others that are in similar circumstances.
