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 :)

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.

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.

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.

I have worked with Jill in a number of different ways: Jill served as a consultant and coach to an internal creative team building committee which I chaired at my work place. She brought so much value to the process, from her deep knowledge of team building practices to her thoughtful listening skills and her enthusiasm and energy level. I have also observed Jill in her capacity as Wellness Director for a public higher education facility. She recruited and prepped outside trainers so their involvement with the audiences was targeted and responsive to the strategic plan of our HR division. Jill has also functioned as the trainer herself, where she is engaging and engaged with the audience; able to couple spontaneity with a deep professional knowledge; and deeply attuned to the audience's needs. Jill is an exceptional motivational speaker and her passion and commitment to serving her audience is a delight!

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.

    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.

    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.
