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.

I worked with Andy as I was seeking more confidence in public speaking. I met with him approximately four times. I learned so much in my work with him. What I most appreciate is the mindset change that I implemented as I worked with him. How you think about and approach public speaking has significant impact on the experience. Thank you, Andy!

If your looking for an electrifying, impulsive, boost from a speaker then Tyrone is your man. Not only did he motivate me, but a room of people. I didn't just want to be better that day, I will be better every chance I get. This young man has a gift, give him a chance to share that with you.

Stu Schulman is an extraordinary public speaker. I have seen him present at many venues ranging from a conference room with 10 people to a ballroom with hundreds of attendees. His choice of words are simple and honest and delivered with roaring optimism. There is an undeniable tug and emotional appeal to his story telling and I guarantee that his material will inspire action. He has a marvelous sense of humor on and off the stage and you will genuinely feel good to be around him. I’m looking forward to seeing and hearing him again!

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.

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!

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 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 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!

    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!
