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 :)

Mac is a total pro. Not only did he help me lose 30+ pounds, but he is an absolute delight in the gym. He is motivational without being too pushy—and his workouts are super challenging, efficient, and fun. I can't recommend him highly enough.

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.

Professional storyteller Gary Lloyd spoke to nearly 50 American Association of University Women and guests at a 60th anniversary luncheon at the lovely 2941 Restaurant in Falls Church in September. Everyone was entranced by Gary's delightful presentation of eight incredible, savvy, little-known women from different time periods and parts of the world. It was a most fitting topic for the AAUW women - and Gary's storytelling ability was much appreciated.

Joe has provided me with life coaching on multiple occasions. I have also seen his motivational speeches, and he is an excellent speaker. He is down to earth and level-headed but at the same time goal-oriented. These skills combined with his business expertise makes him a very useful resource for those looking for advice in order to get ahead in their career.

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!

I contacted Monique at a time when I needed unbiased expert advice regarding dating and relationships. My coaching sessions with Monique exceeded my expectations. She helped me address my current concerns and helped to put me on a path to look beyond those concerns. Monique has a unique way of ensuring that you "shine the light" (so to speak) upon yourself, so that by the end of the each session you learn or are made more aware of things about yourself. What I particularly liked is how Monique not only focused on romantic relationships but she also covered the full spectrum: relationships with family and friends; short and long term life goals, etc. Monique is very personable and I was very comfortable expressing myself to and with her. I liked that she arranged the sessions to take place in a social atmosphere versus an office setting. I would definitely recommend Monique and personally consult with her again if there is a future need.

So, i needed a French tutor to support my learning. I have been assigned missions in Francophone Africa for work, but French was not particularly my language of choice in college. I can understand and write, but my conversational French is not good so i was looking for someone to help me. I met her through a young African association in DC and her prices were affordable. It was great for me to have a native French speaker of African descent tutor me, and with my crazy work schedule, i was grateful for her flexibility and online tutoring. Also, making the classes not boring for me is all i hoped for frankly lol. Would def recommend her! i'm making progress!!

I attended a session on Personal Development run by Ms Sawyer. I enjoyed the material that was provided in the concise, informative and engaging manner. My sole suggestion is to divide the information into smaller more digestible chunks that would allow for greater and more in-depth discussion.

Pierre was hired to present at our associations Mid-Atlantic Conference for Business Development and Proposal Professionals. He put in hours of research and development to learn about our profession and familiarize himself with our audience. This came through in his presentation where he was able to captivate his viewers by sharing personal moments, relate-able situations, humor, and excellent delivery so that everyone watching left with a sense of self-worth and feeling empowered to make positive changes in their lives. I would recommend Pierre to anyone looking for a speaker who puts in the effort to make his presentation personal and memorable. His attitude and energy were contagious and regardless of the topic he is asked to present on, I feel confident that the level of professionalism and detail he holds would allow him to give the same high-quality performance each and every time.

    I am turning 30 this year but instead of throwing a party for myself, I am organizing a single moms event. It will be free, so I am using my savings to pay for most of this. My budget is somewhat limited, but this is a much needed event for my community. I have indicated October 4th as the date, but I am flexible, though I would prefer sometime the first weekend in October, either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
