    Bob is the man. I have had the privilege of having Bob as a coach for several years now and he has done wonders for my practice. I do lots of speaking engagements and I thought that I was pretty good at it until I went to one of Bob seminars. He showed me tricks of the trade that had never occurred to me. I call Bob my guru because of his Zen-like approach to problem-solving and the overall way to perceive a problem and plan. Bob is also unbelievably well-connected and is always able to pair me with someone who can help me accomplish my tasks. Whether it is public speaking or business planning, Bob is the man.

    Working with Shawn is exactly what I hoped for ad more. y fear of public speaking consumed me and I was worried that I would lose promotion opportunities at my work. Shawn worked with me for 6 sessions and now I am speaking to the entire company at a staff retreat!! She is good at what she does and have shared her info with several co-workers. She is kind, patient and makes good use of our time o the phone ad via Skype. Next job for her is my grant for a nonprofit!

      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.

      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.

        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.

        Reggie is a fabulous teacher! Don't even think twice about hiring him, just go for it. He has such extensive experience in public speaking and it shows. His lessons are well planned and tailored to my specific needs. He has assisted me with developing content and most importantly working with my fear of public speaking. In working with him, I feel I am developing the confidence and presentation skills needed in order to effectively promote my business.

        About

        Customers hire me to speak because my Transformative Speeches bring about positive, permanent shifts in the quality of my audiences lives. These shifts are the direct cause for a new and unique kind of freedom and power—the freedom to be at ease and the power to be effective in the areas that matter most to you. The quality of your relationships, the confidence with which you live your life, your personal productivity, your experience of the difference you make, your enjoyment of life. You may be wondering, " How am I, Bruce Munsky, going to help you create that kind of shift in your life during a speech. " By using a practical methodology for producing breakthroughs—achievements that are extraordinary, outside of what’s predictable. Each speech gives people an awareness of the basic structures in which they know, think, and act. From that awareness comes a fundamental shift that leaves people more fully in accord with their own possibilities and those of others. Each participant will find themselves able to think and act beyond existing views and limits in their personal / professional lives, in relationships, and wider communities of interest. No matter if it is a small group of fifty or an auditorium of thousands. Every speech will show up as a personal conversation with you about your life and what matters to you. Everyone is guaranteed to leave empowered with a transformed life, possibilities to create, actions to take that will cause family members, friends, as well as others who interact with you to notice who you are now being and say to themselves, " I want some of that. " Hearing and or seeing the lasting difference that I have made in someone's life, within an organization or community, and for anyone I have presented to are what makes being a professional public speaker enjoyable. Like a nurse that shares with me how she is more connected to and able to relate to her patients ever since participating in one of my speeches and applying the Transformative Tools that I shared with the participants. My purpose is being fulfilled when the employees and management of a business I presented to create an alignment that has resulted in increased productivity, sales, and overall job satisfaction / performance due to applying the Transformative Tools I shared during my speech.

        I am a former college football coach where I coached our athletes to give their best performances on every play. This resulted in our winning two conference championships. My programs make neural science fun and understandable and also includes best practices of elite performers. I teach people how to focus, how to influence what they pay attention to and how to create habits that will instinctively generate the actions necessary to reach their goals. There is a core of personal accountability and I'm known as "The Accountability Guy". I certainly build a case for the importance of taking responsibility and being the source versus going victim and blaming. I customize for every group and when hired I will ask about your goals, your systems and metrics, your KPI's, your daily activities and then your obstacles. I incorporate this into the presentation. This is an entertaining, high energy and fun presentation with immediately useful and relevant content. I can customize to any amount of time. I am the only speaker who presents like I do. No one else has the background that I have. I've worked with Nobel Prize winner Roger Sperry while I was a head football and wrestling coach at Cal Tech in Pasadena, CA. I had the opportunity to refine and simplify these techniques with Steve Mariucci, fellow assistant coach while at Cal State Fullerton. Steve is a former head coach for the San Francisco 49'ers and Detroit Lions and is now a broadcaster. I don't emphasize this unless you want me to. I also coached an Olympic Gold Medal winner in Greco Roman Wrestling, Jeff Blatnick, who won the gold in the 1984 Olympics.
