Solomon is an excellent motivational speaker. You can sense when he speaks that what he's saying comes from wisdom he's gained from past experiences. His ability to relate to the youth is amazing. If you're looking for anyone to catapult your youth group, here is your pick!

Play One basketball is all about a multi-level improvement in the game of basketball. Training is custom tailored to specifics in areas of desire and of necessity for success as a player (and from my experience as a person as well) All age groups for this reason would benefit from working with Play One, and Play One certainly wants to be there for them. A passion for the game and the craft of improvement is prevalent in the reflection of positive attitude and fortuitous efforts to accommodate with flexibility of the program and exercises.

We had an awesome experience with David Wilson. My son, who is now 11, has been playing since he was 3 and David has been one of best coaches he has had the pleasure of learning from. He not only teaches them the skills they need to be a great player individually, he teaches them to use those skills to play exceedingly well as a team.

Mr.Jeffries was the Motivational Speaker at an event we had for Family and Friends Day with my company. We wanted to speak to our young men from ages16-18 in regards to what they wanted for themselves beyond high school. Mr.Jeffries did an awesome job with letting the students know there's so much more to look forward to after graduation. In regards to college, resume building money managent just to name a few things that the group went over. Got a lot of positive feedback from our guest and management. The group was allowed to asked questions and go in depth with each component of the workshop. Mr. Jeffries was prompt and excited to speak with the group.We will definitely use him again with our next enrichment focus group.

Rodney Gray was hired as the keynote speaker for our first annual "Ignite Your Passion" Educational Day. He penetrated the hearts, souls & minds of everyone in attendance, even the vendors. A representative from an educational agency joined us and asked for his contact information. He spoke with so much clarity, honesty and most importantly from his heart. He had been assigned to be our annual keynote speaker indefinitely. His passion for what he does is evident through his presentations, leaving the audience wanting & needing more.

Tara was a former manager who I've kept in touch with for almost 10 years. She's a great motivator and is able to easily unpack information in a way that makes it easy to understand. She also does a great job creating actionable steps to help you achieve your goal. I'd highly recommend her as a speaker or coach.

Dear Miss Thomas . Before we began working together I knew I had the ability to become the person I wanted to be but I was having a hard time achieving it. With your coaching I was able to understand on a deeper level what is important to me, what inspires me, and what I can do right now to make that real. I have renewed motivation to take action toward these goals and dreams.

I loved the fact that I was able to talk to Travaughn like she was an old friend. I felt comfortable enough to be completely honest and open with her about my feelings and thoughts which allowed her to better assist me in my journey. I could tell by our sessions that she was well educated in her journey to assist her clients successfully. She is very professional with her sessions. She was always punctual and prepared in our scheduled sessions. There was always a feeling of continuity in our sessions even though a week had passed since the last session. She gave me her personal contact info to call her any time I felt the need and she was always available. She brought so much clarity to the issues that I was dealing with. The tools and resources she provided me have genuinely changed the way I think and react to everyday life issues; from the minor to the major. I feel so blessed that I was able to be inspired by Coach Swain.

I attended a Saturday workshop on Creating Positive Outcomes in your life and business by using 'brain-based strategies. The workshop was called "Women's Intensive Workshop' because the presenter acknowledged the difference in the female processing mechanisms. I found the workshop completely relevant to the goals I am trying to achieve as a budding entrepreneur. I found the whole process thought provoking... I appreciated the research based approach to the workshop... the graphics were well done and the notebook followed the presentation. The workshop setting was intimate and inviting. Participants were encouraged to share their life experiences when relevant. I would highly recommend the services of K.L. Alston to any professional training organization.
