Craig is a nice combination of a motivational speaker and a career coach. He guided me on improving my resume, cover letter and pursuing careers in companies that I would like to be a part of, instead of settling for any job. I highly recommend Craig for anyone who has been looking for the "right" job with no success and needs a new approach in their search!
We had the pleasure of working with Father Callahan. He was very helpful, punctual and such a kind speaker. He even arrived earlier. We were blown away by his sermon and it made our Roman Catholic ceremony that much special. Our friends and family were delighted with the father too. They were deeply moved to tears. We're native Spanish speakers and he added a Spanish passage to the ceremony. We can't thank him enough!
Fantastic experience working with Juan and Pura Vida Wedding. Juan made the process very easy and accommodated our requests. Especially as we had a combined group of Spanish and English speakers, able to help bridge the gap so both sets of parties were equally included. Extremely professional and genuinely sincere, it is evident that Juan takes great pride and passion in what he does to make your special day, truly significant! Would highly recommend Juan and Pura Vida Wedding to anyone getting married, and feel confident that you have made the right choice when you say, “I do!”
Jim Ryan came highly recommended by a staff member, and upon meeting with him I knew immediately that he would be an excellent speaker to have at our annual staff development day. This proved true. Jim presented his Simple Happiness message to 130 employees of various ages and backgrounds. His uplifting and motivational presentation resonated broadly and deeply with out diverse group. As often is the case with employees in healthcare and other helping profession, it can sometimes be difficult to separate work and home life. Jims approach enabled each staff member in his or her own way to explore opportunities to apply to themselves both professionally and personally the same drive for joy, happiness, well-being, and unconditional positive regard that they ten to strongly deliver to other people, including their clients and peers. Jim offered highly relevant tools, concepts, and ideas. I received many positive comments from staff at the conclusion of the event and in the weeks afterward. My staff particularly enjoyed Jims tips on adding joy to daily life. I highly recommend Jim Ryan as a speaker for any event with a goal of enforcing personal wellness. I have no doubt that after listening toand feeling inspired to engage withJims message, you and those you lead will feel a renewed sense of joy and positivity Jeffrey Freidman
Nick from Personalized Mindfulness led a session on mindfulness and communication. It offered practical ways for deep listening and literally changed the atmosphere at my office. Truly inspiring and highly recommended.
I had a great experience working with Dr Rissy's Writing. Morissa Schwartz and her team are absolutely amazing. I have had the opportunity to interact with Morissa and besides being an expert copywriter, she is also an inspirational speaker.
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.
Patricia Diesel's Life coaching approach and unique one-on-one partnership offered a different technique. Her phone coaching with my decision to invest time to a new way of thinking, preparing and taking action not only brought great success for emptying my storage unit on time, but a transformation in me happened as well. I became empowered and applied the reality of my abilities, values, and accountability to repeatedly bring about a positive result. I take away from this a tool box of skills unique to my strengths, abilities and mindset for success is ready to bring out for all future projects and goals. Her instruction was wonderful but it was her encouragement that brought life to it. Thank you, Patricia!
Marion is a truly wonderful and inspirational coach. She gently leads you to what you are seeking with much love, understanding and compassion. I couldn't have picked a better person to help me in my journey.
Victoria Song is an inspiring role model. The Harvard Business School "Women's Student Association" and Harvard Graduate School of Design "Women in Design" organizations invited Victoria to speak to graduate students in a variety of fields about her career path and how to take risks productively. While students hailed from a variety of backgrounds, her relate-ability and grounded demeanor created a safe environment for questions during the presentation and afterwards. She is a young professional that many women strive to emulate and to hear her speak is very inspiring.
Kim has such a skill and insight for pushing herself and others to the highest quality of life. New experiences, relationships, career direction and transformation; she has great advice on all. Many friends in NYC have benefitted from Kim's advice; and she is a great resource for many. I would highly recommend working with Kim and learning from her life experiences and the experiences of her many friends and clients. Kim knows how to "make it happen" to help you live your best life!
A powerful speaker. You met and exceed my expectations. Your message was thought provoking and inspiring.
Brian Watts is an amazing speaker and leader. His presence is commanding and change promoting. I have enjoyed working with him. He is, no doubt, one of the most engaging speakers I've heard in a while!
I have known of Blacklight for a while through my sister. I would read his posts on Facebook and ALWAYS be so inspired by them. I appreciated everything he would share with the world on inspired living. He also worked with my sister as a coach/counselor. My sister would share about how helpful he was in her life. Sharing tid bits of advice he would offer to her. Then I started looking for some help in my life, and realized that Blacklight would be a great match. Blacklight and I have been working together for about a year and a half. It has been life changing. When we started working together I swore I could not be an organized scheduled person. Now I live by planning my week, staying on track, and completing goals. Blacklight holds me accountable to my commitments, while inspiring and motivating to conquer the next frontiers of my dreams, and in my relationships. Blacklight is helpful on a practical front, with the how to organize your life front. But he is also a great ear for emotional/relationship work. He can set you up on working on your affirmations, finding your affirmations, working on how to properly communicate with your partner, definitely has some parenting advice to share, and is an all around ball of firey inspiration to my life!!! Everytime I get off the phone with him. If I feel like. "Ok, I can rock this life thing!!" Thank you Blacklight for choosing to be an inspiration to many, and more specifically thank you for helping me, motivating me, encouraging me, and listening listening and listening to me.
Kim is an amazing and inspirational coach. Kim taught me tools for self empowerment that I could immediately apply in my personal and professional life. Since my coaching session with Kim I was able to immediately apply it to my job search. I experienced an increase in getting job interviews and job offers. Thank you Kim for the coaching and renewed confidence in myself to achieve my goals.
You will be hard pressed to find a more captivating speaker. I’ve attended several of Mr. Buchanan’s events. I have found each to be life-affirming, engaging and entertaining. These were not mere canned presentations, but events particularly tailored to the audience. A great many were talking about it for months and even years after.
Mark has been an inspiration and wonderful support system for me. He's knowledgeable on both fitness and healthy eating. I ask questions and receive support and answers in minutes.
As General Manager of Big Fun Promotions it was my absolute pleasure to have Mr. Farace come in and work with our sales team and team leaders. Michael's Coaching style was multifaceted and inspiring. His ability to reach each individual employee on a personal level was not only impressive but successful. Big Fun Promotions benefited immensely from his dedicated Coaching style. We happily watched sales soar and confidence levels in our sales staff improve not only at work but in their personal lives as well. Deborah Sloboda, GM Big Fun Promotions

Karen Purcell, M.M., N.D., C.N., is The Diva Doc's naturopathic physician, professional speaker and opera singer. My career aspirations as an opera singer were dashed because of an ongoing illness. Eventually, I found natural medicine. I was amazed that it worked so well that I was able to sing all over the world. Later, I studied naturopathic medicine, herbalism, nutrition, stress reduction and homeopathy. It has been my privilege to work with people of all ages and from all walks of life. They call me The Diva Doc because of my performance history and my sparkle. Now, I can do everything -- treat patients, sing, teach and speak professionally to many groups.
