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.

Martin was extremely passionate about our concerns and completed his research with what we wanted to be talked about. We are a blue collar government entity and were seeking some motivation on communication across different departments. Martin spoke for an hour about the subject and was once again, very informative on the subject. The only thing I would say would make this better was to maybe add a bit more humor into the room. There was a slight non engagement to the group. Understandably with a group of 50+ snow plow drivers, there will be some non interest in any subject, but I think there could have been a bit more involvement. Martin is a great speaker for someone or a group that is looking for a "dress for success" type of speech. Martin is also affordable, and extremely professional in his business.

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.

I have heard Oumar speak on several occasions and his speeches are always captivating and focused on the audience interests. He gets the audience engaged in the topic by asking pointed questions, adding personal stories, through the use of humor or even by inserting YouTube videos to augment a point he is making. He uses these techniques very effectively to get the audience to relate to the message behind his speech. His speeches include self-improvement, inspirational and motivational topics.

Stu is an excellent speaker. He is funny, engaging, articulate, and passionate. He instantly connected with the audience establishing rapport and credibility.

Through Kelly I learned how to read food labels in a way that made sense to me. I learned what to do to balance my meals. With Kelly's coaching I was never hungry. If I had a craving, I ate it. Kelly never made me feel guilty for falling off the wagon. She would dust me off with a motivational text or a new recipe to try. I learned that when I feel like sludge, look at what I'm eating. I can't feel fueled from an overly processed microwave meal or a drive thru brown bag. What she taught me to make is 100 times tastier and so much better for my family. I'm down 15 lbs in less than five months without spending hours at the gym. The information she armed me with can be applied for the rest of my life. Bringing Kelly on board was one of the best decisions I've ever made. What happens when that New Years resolution gym membership expires or you never have time to use it? Thirty minutes is all it takes for Kelly to start making a difference. No gimmicks, no specialty meals to buy. Sound, educated knowledge, backed by research direct to you in a way that anyone can build and grow from. I was scared of failing and having someone hold me accountable. Change is scary. But this change is worth the hesitation you might be feeling. Do it! Have that first conversation with Kelly!

Sunday Burquest was not only an inspiring speaker at our National Cancer Survivors Day event, but she was also an amazing advocate for our event. In the months leading up to Hope in Motion, she attended several planning sessions and recorded videos (live and edited) to help promote the event. She promoted Hope in Motion to all of her loyal followers on on her own social media as well, helping us to exceed event attendance goals. On event day, she made herself available for photos and conversations with attendees. She spoke to the crowd prior to a 5K and 1-mile walk/run, and she was the perfect person to encourage and motivate them with her message of hope and perseverance. Sunday is one of the most genuine people you will ever meet, and that comes across to the audience. I am so thankful for her partnership and support. I highly recommend Sunday as a speaker and motivator!

We have worked with Colette on several occasions. We work in an industry where we provide cognitive behavioral education for our Clients. We wanted to provide a virtual classroom experience for our Clients who are unable to be in the classroom. We asked Colette to research the many options and provide us with the best opportunity. She immediately started her research and was in continuous communication with us. The outcome is wonderful: we have a smooth running webinar classroom for our Clients and they are thrilled with this option. Thank you Colette! We would definitely call on her for her expertise, support and kindness again and again! Yvette and Rick Prigge Freedom Chemical Health Services

When I came to see Lori I had pretty much settled into being a fat depressed house wife. With her mind coaching and weight-loss program, I'am a leaner, sexier, stronger women in every way. In just a few sessions Lori taught me how to tap into my mind, and get rid of my as Lori says "Stinkin Thinkin". Her compassion, encouragement, and support of me as a client,was not something I found even in my regular MD of 25 years. She is a true professional and a awesome"Mind Coach". Thanks for helping me become a strong women again. I wish she could reach all the women in this world that need her help. But the only way that could happen is if we "clone" her!

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!

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!
