Carrie was one of the best speakers I've heard in a long time. She had the perfect amount of humor and empathy weaved into her talk. I got great feedback about her from the audience afterwards.
Excellent speaker. She had the audience rolling in laughter from some of her humorous stories.
Rob's energy and passion for what he does are clear right away. He always has a positive outlook and will help you find the silver lining in every situation. When I first spoke with him, I was having some trouble being underappreciated at work. Rob offered sound advice and was always there for me when I needed him. Highly recommend Rob as a life and business coach, motivational speaker and all of the above!
David is an amazing speaker who really touched a lot of our students at Bartlett High school. His personal journey and the stories he shares help to motivate students and to realize that everyone has struggles and everyone has pain, but it's how they deal with it and learn from it. He is full of passion, power, and enthusiasm. He is an excellent speaker and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a motivational speaker, especially for students!
Dr. Stem Mahlatini is an excellent speaker. We have invited her to many of our church conventions and she has always done a marvelous job. She knows her subject, and she connects very well with her audience. She is a speaker whom you want to hear again. Rev. Noah Nyamaropa M.Div. Senoir Servant Leader Mt. Zion AME Church Atlanta, GA
Silicon Valley is populated with exceptional people. But, even among these stars, Joanie Bigwood shines brighter and embodies an entirely new level of creative storytelling, cerebral hilarity, and audience engagement. Last summer, I hosted an event for over 100 Toastmasters and their families and friends. Toastmasters is an organization that helps people master public speaking and most of the attendees at our event were long-time members who have seen a lot of speeches. For entertainment we had a monk in full orange monk regalia who taught us a series of collaborative exercises and games, a nuclear engineer/ecstatic dancer who showed us how to do Contact Improv, Miss Ethiopia who gave an inspirational speech and led us through a Zumba session, and Joanie Bigwood who won our hearts with the most unique talk/performance of the night! Joanie wowed the crowd as she simultaneously juggled a series of balls, representing different stages of parenthood, while she gave an introspective and enlightening talk that included one of the most honest and funniest rap songs about raising kids that I have ever heard. She danced, she sang, she juggled, and she gave a speech that made me laugh and cry. No one could take their eyes off of her and at the end of the performance she got a standing ovation (from a really discerning crowd). People were still talking about her at the end of the night, wanting to know more about her and where they could go to see her perform again! Joanie Bigwood was the star of our event and I would recommend her to infinity and beyond!
Andy seems confident in his work. He has thus far made me believe that he can bring me to the top in my public speaking career.
Just started meeting with him. I found him to be attentive, positive and knowledgeable.
March of 2013 I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Jacqui Senn at the Repowering Women: Knowledge IS Power conference event with South Central Alliance of Churches. Jacqui joined me and other motivational speakers as a Keynote Speaker who's topic of address was Identifying & Surviving Abuse. Though often times this subject is challenging to tackle Jacqui did it with such grace, strength, passion, and pose until there was barely a dry eye in the house. Jacqui is a professional speaker with an empowering courageous story to share with others who have walked a mile in her shoes. I was impressed with Jacqui, her testimony, and her professionalism. If you are looking for an awe-inspiring speaker I would recommend Jacqui Senn every time.

Diane has been the key note speaker at multiple retreats that I have attended.

Her greatest gift is that she speaks from her heart and no matter how many people were in the room, I always felt like she was speaking directly to me.

Let me know what your needs are within your organization, and I will do research and fit a presentation to fit your needs.

Your resume has about 10 seconds to catch a hiring manager's eye, does your resume make the cut? For most, likely not. I work with my fiancé who is an experienced life coach, I'm a political consultant who represents clients all over the country, we're a great team. Every resume needs a fresh pair of eyes, you get much more... 1) 1 hour of life coaching, we need to have a better sense of who you are and what you provide. Needs to go beyond name on a resume. 2) Two sets of eyes on your resume. I pride myself on recognizing potential, or at least getting you in the door. Some "resume writers" are simply that, resume writers - you need someone that actually understands what businesses are truly looking for. I work for clients all over the country in every industry imaginable - the trick is not knowing everything, but knowing everyone. 3) We'll provide you with some thoughts of where to look, businesses, approaches etc.
This story is something that will change the perspective of the those who hear it, and will serve as a beacon of hope and progressive thinking.
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.
