Cathrine wass wonderful she married us in a old chapel in Penn Camp in Waynesboro PA on Dec 21. I think the service was about 30 minutes, She was wonderful I new what I wanted and she worked with me through email and phone calls to get it right and as well had many ideas to help me as well. I did not want a service that was cute and dry I wanted it personal and she made sure that it was very much. Both of the men that raised me passed away and I waned to make sure the service was also to remember them as well. I had lighting of the candles and a special poem I had that a close friend read. It was very important that a friend of mine read a chapter from the bible, do open prayer and read the poem. She did not mind at all. As well we are a down to earth family like to cut up and make things fun I was married in Camo and in Gene's and Boots. She made it fun had everyone even guess smiling and laughing. She also made it special for my nephew and brother since my dads where not here they walked me down and my nephew is 4 so she even asked him if it was OK if I married David it was so cute a lot of minsters do not like including little one because you never know how they are going to act but she had know problem at all. My ring barrel was only 1 and he even fell on the floor but she was wonderful it made me feel even special when she smiled and did not get upset at all. It was really cute. I love the fact as soon as she got there well even days before calling and emailing me to see if there was anything I needed her to help me with or bring. when she arrived it was from the start this is your day and we are going to make it great. Even though we had a few things thrown at us over half of the wedding party got lost and the person that was doing the music messed up a little she did not get up set we worked everything out. neither of these was not here fault but instead of letting it get to her she kept me calm. I can keep going on how well she was but it comes down to this if you want someone that will listen to what you want and someone that will get to know you and make it personal you want her. She even went out and bought a Camo apron (Which she did not need to do.) so she fit in with the wedding party. I feel I have met a friend for life and my whole family feels the same way. Even now the wedding is over she has still emailed me to see how everything was going. I also had my best friend that was suppose to be in the wedding his grandfather died and could not make it to the wedding because of the funeral she has been praying for him and still contacts me to see how he is. I really do not see anything I would improve with her she did everything I want much more she went up and beyond. Hope this helps! Thanks again Cathrine you were a big pleasing to our life.

I cannot speak highly enough of Cathy! She was so great! She really took charge during the rehearsal and ceremony when my coordinator was a little passive and wasn't keeping things moving. She also helped when things went south the day of! She went to the store and bought water when the caterers did not supply water.

She simply could not have done anything better. She was gracious, personable, professional and genuine. We are so happy to have had Cathy as part of the happiest chapter of our lives!

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)

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 :)

Dave was a phenomenal preacher for our wedding ceremony. He guided us every step of the way and kept us together. The words and scripture he chose were perfect. Even when the wind didn't allow us to light our candles he still made it work. We picked the best person to do our ceremony. He deserves more than 5 stars :).

John did a wonderful job giving a motivational talk about "the importance of great customer service" during our staff meeting!! Each member of our medical team left the room feeling energized and excited to help our patients. He did a great job using real-world examples to drive home the message. Everyone could relate to his examples. John has a great sense of humor which helped capture everyone's attention. We would definitely hire him again to speak at a future meeting!

John spoke to our organization for two hours on how to be more productive and effectively deal with stress in a fast-paced, often chaotic environment. He was a very-well prepared and engaging speaker who used humor and a variety of exercises, humorous anecdotes, and incisive comments to reinforce his briefing points. -National Counterterrorism Center

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.

This is the PMIWDC review of Dr. Joel Freeman's presentation “Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy” delivered on 01/20/2015 at the Fairview Park Marriott Hotel. Of the 275 attendees, there were 155 responses to our survey. Speaker Rating (5 point scale) --------------------------------------- Speaker's Delivery: 4.70 Value/Appropriateness of the Topic: 4.63 Additionally, here are comments relevant to Joel's presentation: ------------------------------------------------------ - Great Presentation - He needs more time to talk. - Speaker is very animated - certainly kept me awake but also hard to follow his point at 8:07 pm. Lots of graphs, not much explanations on influencing different people. - Excellent speaker - Exceptional! Well done! - Speaker effectiveness off the chart! No suggestion- Amazing! Best speech in a while! - Please bring Mr. Freeman back each year. - Great speaker and topic! - Not really my style of speaker. It was too "informercialish" in beginning but better about 15 min in when we got to the "meat." My feedback as the event coordinator: ------------------------------------------------------ Joel was exceptionally easy to work with. He was flexible in tailoring his presentation to our member's needs. His visual were legible for the large ballroom. He communicated frequently with our team and showed great interest in the engagement.

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.

Marc Hayes was recommended to me by a co worker. I always thought life coaching was a joke, but my life was going nowhere. I started telephone consultations with Coach Marc and things began to improve for me immediately. Things began to change for me for the better after one 30 minute coaching session. After the second consultation I started getting my life together. I highly recommend Coach Marc.

Jim Liggett is one of the finest motivational speakers I have seen in my 30-year management career. One of his best talks is called "The Secret to Business Success" where he enters the room carrying a box with the word "Secret" labled on it. He proceeds to talk about how building trust through employee relations is the key to meeting and exceeding business goals. But it's at the end when he removes the contents of the box that the audience gets a message that they will never forget. Go see him if you ever get the chance.

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!

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!
