Sebastien Braxton has been one of my favorite presenters for years--and I don't say that lightly. He combines refreshing honesty with well-researched insight, a depth of thought that only comes from time, and a sincere desire for his audience to be be bettered by what he shares. His breadth of knowledge and experience is remarkable of someone his age, and yet he can still relate to people barely in their teens. There's also the fact that he's a riveting storyteller, complete with hilarious experiences and memorable lessons. Whether it's about finances, health, or spirituality, Sebastien's presentations are clear, profound, and effective.

Michele is a natural Life Coach with amazing wisdom and a social sense that can only be described as a given talent, the way Beethoven could write music from a combination of learned skills enhanced by his own natural ability. She is able to connect with me and my goals, help me see the big picture, then walk me through positive steps of change to reach my professional and personal goals. I was in a job situation where I was lost, defeated, abused, frightened, suffering post traumatic stress, stuck in a political situation crafted to take every good thing I achieved and convert it to a liability. She helped me first to realize the climate I was in, why it was destructive, then motivated me to have the courage to go from being a talented player on a bad team to being a talented player on a winning team. I am so grateful to her. I give her 5 stars for possessing the qualities of an excellent coach. Qualities she possesses: Compassionate: she let me know she really cared about the situation I was being tormented by. She excels at creative problem solving, energizing, encouraging, clarifying, and patient listening. As I processed problems, she helped to guide me towards effective positive changes. Sometimes I had to discuss a topic many times before I could finally let it go and move on. She would rejoice with me in small victories. Eventually those small victories became a huge wins for me and my career. Good listener: she gave me time to express my hopes and dreams, took my ideas and we turned them into practical goals, made targets to aim for without being too overwhelmed, developed realistic workloads. Through good listening, she outlined my points, drew up a helpful diagram to help me understand the toxic environment I was trying to work under, and we came up with strategies for changing it. It was definitely a two way street where we exchanged our thoughts and ideas of each situation and their solutions. Nonjudgemental: Michele communicates definite positive regard, caring, and respect. Discrete: I am sure all is confidential and I know she can be trusted. Michele is self aware, with incredibly high personal standards and ambitions: She is continually self improving, going to seminars bringing new ideas to the table. It seems like she really enjoys what she is doing as a coach. She has been in upper level management before being a life coach, and is able to share her experiences in a humble, open, nurturing way. She is a good example for me. I can observe her through her life experiences and learn from her, as she really walks the talk, is authentic in every way. Perceptive, intuitive, Michele can see through situations to the big picture: She could mirror things that I could not see since I was in the picture. She can pick up on nuances through her understanding of different personalities, and can match up strategies to handle them in different ways. We did this often. It helped me to understand and forgive those who had been unkind, to not take their problems personally. It was like she took me from an office with no windows to the mountains with a view. At present Michele is my ongoing mentor and coach. We are working on goals to further advance my personal life and my career. I feel so much gratitude to Michele. She knows how to quickly and effectively put together a whole life picture, plan an itinerary to reach a personal destination, sum up a road block or sticky situation and solve it, and make positive changes with her charges. Plus she’s awesome as a person. She knows how to help her clients get to where they want to go in life!

Mr. Williams a phenomenal counselor, coach, and speaker. He was able to help me through a very dark period of my life. My husband of 42 years passed suddenly, I was lost and I lost everything. Mr. Williams helped me regain control of my life when I spiraling out of control. He helped me through the PTSD, grief, depression, and general apathy for living. Now I am doing great, have my own place, and working on my next project.

Suzette Vearnon was a guest motivational speaker at a women's healing workshop I conducted on April 22 and April 23, 2016, in Dulles, Virginia. Women from around the world gathered to learn how to become whole again. Suzette was so inspiring--she had all of us mesmorized with her words of strength and encouragement. We had four different speakers, but she was truly the highlight of the day. I highly recommend her to any venue that needs a speaker to inspire, strengthen, and rebuild self-esteem and strength.

I think that desmond is a true inspiration for young people. The meaning behind his words is powerful. Not only is this man in touch with god, but he had a great understanding of the everyday struggles. This motivational program this you man has is a great guide on how to keep going even when all of the odds seem stacked against you. I recommend this for everyone to take time out of the busy schedule, and learn from what he has to say.

About

Sandra Dubose is clearly on her way to becoming an international, multimedia success. This native New Yorker, known as the Bald Beauty Queen of Self-Esteem, is a dynamic motivational speaker, author and smooth jazz vocalist with an inspiring personal story that has made history and national media headlines. Sandra is a role model for women of all ages, and she teaches them how to build healthy self-esteem through the practice of self-love and self-acceptance. She is a patient advocate for women’s health issues and has been ever since the age of 25 when she was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease, Alopecia Areata. This incurable condition resulted in the loss of all of the hair on her scalp and body and subsequently, the loss of her self-esteem. She was forced into a compelling journey of self-discovery and had to learn firsthand how to heal emotional wounds, overcome obstacles and rebuild her confidence. As a testament of her courage and star power as a vocalist, in March 2011, Sandra competed bald in a statewide beauty pageant. She made history when she was crowned 2011 Mrs. Black North Carolina, the first bald beauty queen of the state. In her life changing book, “My Crown and Glory, It’s Not About the Hair,” she shares her personal life lessons and six principles she used to shift her life from being a victim to living in victory. Sandra is sought out nationally to deliver her empowering message through words and song at conferences, schools, corporations and churches. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2012 Radical Woman Award and the 2013 SWIBA Inspirational Entrepreneur of the Year Award. This positive role model and youth mentor is being the change she wants to see in this world and paving the way for others to do the same.

Did you know that 1 in 3 teens have experienced dating violence? Or that nearly all first use of tobacco occurs before high school graduation? And according to one study, 20% of teens are either "rarely" or "never" happy with their body image. We at the SCLC recognize that it is important for youths to talk about these issues openly and freely. Martin Luther King Jr., our founder, said, “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.” The SCLC still believes this to be true today.
