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!

Life isn't always easy. The answers are not always clear and sometimes the questions are not even clear. It has taken me a long time to realize that this is okay. It's okay if you need someone to steer you back to the path you want to be on. I have been blessed to have Gabriella come into my life, she has time and again grounded me and helped me see my potential as a spiritual being. Her talents are far and wide and traverse the scope of enlightenment. She makes it attainable, everything you could ever want is within your power to have. She encourages strength and hope in times of despair and unhappiness. Gabriella is a down to earth person, positive, motivational, and spiritual woman. I cannot say how grateful I am to have her on my team when things get rough. She helped me and continues to help me with my biggest problem....clarity..That there is more out in the universe planned for me and all I have to do is have strength and mindfulness within myself to attain it. The gift she has to offer the people who seek it is absolutely priceless.

Kevin came to my high school for a motivational speech. As the acting president of Upper Academy during 2015, I can speak for everyone who attended and say that Kevin has engaged, inspired students to go through failure. He then went on to explain his story of dropping out of school and how he perservired to become a college graduate sharing his story. This message was well needed in Elizabeth, NJ where students frequently drop out due to a lack of hope in higher education. However, for that one performance he has truly inspired students to keep persisting and dream big.

Robert Tudisco was guest speaker at CADDAC’s "ADHD: Adolescence through Adulthood” workshop in Toronto [8April 2018]. What I valued most about Robert’s presentation was his presence and his ability to connect with his audience. His use of humor makes him an effective ‘story-teller’. Robert has extensive knowledge about ADHD, stemming not only from having ADHD, he has also dedicated his practice as a lawyer to advocating for change in public and social policy. He understands and provides clarity on how ADHD impacts young people and why it is so necessary to provide structure and scaffolding during their transition years to adulthood.

THE SHORT REVIEW I had an amazing hypnosis experience with Elena Beloff. In short, I found Elena to be very professional, kind natured an extremely talented. I would advise anyone interested in hypnosis to leap at the opportunity to work with her. THE LONG REVIEW I am a professional actor, and I had been experiencing debilitating nerves surrounding auditions. After interviewing me and asking questions about the issues that might be causing my anxiety, Elena tailored her hypnosis suggestions to my particular needs. It never felt like she was rehashing some canned script that she uses for every client she sees (not that that would really matter, I suppose). Her calm and reassuring tone was equally matched to the confidence behind her words. She new she could help me, and that gave me great confidence. THE OVERALL RESULT I waited to post this review until I'd had an audition so I could give an honest assessment. The result: After three solid auditions with little or nerves, I relieved to say that I feel completely 85% - 95% better. Before working with Elena, I was stammering over my lines, I was unable to stay in the moment; and I had horrible cotton mouth--not an ideal circumstance for a "so-called" professional. After working with Elena, I approach each audition like it's part of the job; I am calm and even excited before entering the room (very new); and most importantly, I am nailing the work. No castings yet, but the feedback I'm getting is in a different universe. Once again, if you are in search of a qualified, professional hypnotist, you should leap at the opportunity to work with Elena Beloff.

My experience with Patricia involved personal life coaching sessions on a professional development level over a two year period. Patricia' mentoring helped me to significantly achieve professional and personal growth through her knowledge and expertise. Her one-on-one coaching provided strategies for me to implement to reach my goals professionally. Her trust and insight was invaluable to me to achieve a positive work-life balance and a job satisfaction!

Azam was the 6th speaker and he quickly transformed the energy of the room from overwhelmed with information to joyous and engaged. The moment he walked in front of the audience, his body language demonstrated his passion for his talk. One of the distinctions he made for me was the ability to tell the difference between happiness and pride in my life. He honestly shared his story with the audience and took everyone on a motivational journey. Several folks communicated to us after the event how grateful they were in the audience to discover potentials for their life. I highly recommend Azam Khan Arvin Khamseh Co-Founder and Co-Organizer of Speakers’ Annex

Andrew spoke at a conference I chaired for the New York State Council on Divorce Mediation. To my and the audience's delight, Andrew's talk was fascinating, engaging and entertaining. Although he has no specific background in law or mediation, his talk was 100% relevant and extremely useful to the audience. After his speech, he was flocked by audience members asking follow up questions and expressing thanks. A truly great speaker can speak to any audience, engage them, educate them and inspire them. By that measure, Dr. Sirlin is a TRULY GREAT SPEAKER.

I hired Sara Elise to speak at a young adult forum regarding budgeting practices and college prep... she was phenomenal! She was very professional when dealing with us and arranging logistics, then very laid back and personable when speaking with the youth, which allowed many of them to feel an instant connection with her. I have never received so many requests to send thank you notes from the students. Plus, she really knows her stuff! I would highly recommend Sara Elise and definitely plan to work with her in the future.

About

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.
