We hired Mitchel to come speak at the Suicide Awareness Walk in St. Paul and were blown away by the effect he had on the crowd. He is an innovative, hysterical, and incredibly deep speaker. His combination of humor, layered with his intense story of his losing his mother....well, there wasn't a dry in the audience. The audience was completely enchanted by him, and he just a wonderful job relating to the audience. I highly recommend him for any speaking gig.
I haven't heard a speaker this good in a long time. We thoroughly enjoyed Carrie's talk.
We have worked with Rick on many occasions over the past fifteen years. Rick has provided us with sales training, team building, and leadership training that has helped us grow in volume but even more as business professionals. He is an inspirational speaker and trainer who continues to follow up those he has helped. It's more than a job to Rick. I highly recommend using Rick for any training needs you may have. We will use him again.
Motivational speaking reaches its pinnacle effectiveness when it is delivered with raw emotion and experience. Tyrone Pickett has both of those in spades.
Mark is outstanding to work with. I've worked with Mark for several years with Mark in the capacity of a Speaker and Trainer. Mark is an extremely skilled interacter with groups.

I very highly recommend! - Paul Sears, Minnesota WorkForce Center
JL Glass presented at our annual convention for the Maryland State Funeral Directors Association in 2012. His presentation was funny, motivational and inspirational. Feedback from attendees included: "JL was outstanding!" "Awesome presentation." and "Well worth having him part of our convention." We recommend JL for your next event!
Stu is an excellent speaker. He is funny, engaging, articulate, and passionate. He instantly connected with the audience establishing rapport and credibility. I enjoyed Stu's stories - they were entertaining but had a great message. I recommend Stu as a motivational and/or business leadership speaker.
I interviewed Jenny Landon for an article I wrote about her for the local newspaper. She is a published author and motivational speaker who inspires others to grow through grief. Her book, Growing Through Grief, is well-written and full of ideas on alternative healing therapies and how to heal after experiencing the loss of a loved one. I highly recommend Landon for motivational speaking and other inspirational engagements.
I am a client of Ann's and was in the audience when she delivered the keynote speech at a networking group's convention. Ann is a very engaging and dynamic speaker who truly connects with her audience through authenticity, honesty, vulnerability and humor. As a coach, Ann offers empathy and insightful support to help her clients break through past pain, current struggles, and our limiting beliefs to become empowered, strong, and believe in ourselves again.
I have had the opportunity to be part of multiple presentations delivered by Karen. She has a way of always keeping the audience engaged and motivated to change. Karen has a way of making the difficult changes that may be necessary, not seem so daunting once she assists in the creation of the plan.
I couldn't have asked for more. Very professional and very funny. I received tons of compliments on Mark's performance.
Very professional and impact speaker. She was very relatable and leaving me with wanting more. She was also very inspiring.
When I was informed that we would have another motivational speaker, I was quick to roll my eyes in exasperation, thinking: NOT ANOTHER ONE! But, I was pleasantly surprised as Terrence gave us stories that seemed genuine and from the heart, as he flawlessly blended humor and seriousness to make a resounding statement for everyone at the high school. The only "whoops" moment was when the wrong song started playing at the end, ruining a bit of the mood, but that was negligible thanks to the rest of his great presentation!
Lynette Crane was speaker on Introversion in the Workplace at the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits Annual Conference in October of 2015. Her presentation was a huge success because she presented extremely relatable information about a topic that is highly important, yet not widely discussed. She presented to a packed room (a very quiet, introverted packed room), but got the group talking and presented with a high level of expertise and engaging wit. This was one of our most well-received HR-related sessions in our almost 30 year history, and we have invited her back for several additional speaking opportunities. I would definitely recommend Lynette to any organization looking for a speaker who is engaging, approachable and knowledgeable, and can help employers, supervisors and employees leverage the power of introverts (which, by the way, is about half the workforce).
We had Norm give his comic magic show at our corporate office and we had so much fun. Audience didn't stop smiling and there were lots of laughter. It was an inclusive show, and he made sure everyone was involved. It brought the team together, and they still talk about it!
