Michael is a fantastic speaker and he touched the lives of so many of students. We are incredibly grateful to him for coming such a long distance to speak at our Diversity week, share his personal journey in life, and motivate our students. Our school is extremely impoverished and our students are in constant struggle. For Michael to come speak and share a story that is so similar to that of many of students meant the world to us and also helps to motivate our students that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. His story is that of pain, hardship and struggle, but one that leads to hope and happiness. Our students were able to empathize with him and many have reached out to him and are still in contact. He is a phenomenal speaker and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an inspirational speaker.

Mark is a powerhouse speaker. The UpTheBiz Lunch and Networking group took away valuable information and content to use in their businesses immediately. Mark delivered an easy and fun learning experience for becoming more comfortable when networking and pitching your elevator speech. Thank you Mark.

While I was District Training Manager for Guitar Center Inc, we hired Steve as a motivational / self-actualization speaker. He was incredibly engaging, and successfully got the attention and *spark* we needed out of a very jaded crowd of young musicians. Very happy with the results. The only thing that could have been better was; he seemed to have done a lot of research about his target market, and spoke to their interests well, but he may have gone a bit long.

Sharon is a wonderful, motivational speaker. She was full of enthusiasm and passion. She had our students up and moving and excited. She made them part of her presentation. Her message about leadership reached so many of our students. She did a book signing for them, as well. She is a great motivator and public speaker. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a speaker!

It was an absolute pleasure to hear Geri share her motivating story. Geri connected with the audience and demonstrated that we all have abilities and, a place in the community. She taught everyone the value of relationships, and how with the right supports our futures are bright. Geri values Employment First, Community Integration and sharing her advocacy voice. She is a woman who is a true inspiration to everyone living with a disability. Her compassion, warmth, patience and humor serve her well in sharing her unyielding conviction to educate others.

    I have had the pleasure of working with Jim for a long time. He is not only a great speaker but living proof that when you never give up good things will happen. His inspirational, motivational message is for all ages and audiences. When you hire Jim you get a speaker that stays with you long after his program is finished. The reason for this is that he gives you techniques that you can use everyday to reach your potential. You probably heard the rest now get the best with Jim Greene.


    Are you leading your life or following it around? You choose! Everyone makes choices every day. Some are conscious; some, not so. By exploring choices and making the best ones, we become empowered. Life, jobs, relationships and finances all become choices rather than chance. This is as important in business as in life. While this may seem like common sense, it is often difficult to incorporate into daily thinking. Topics at keynotes, workshops, staff retreats and speaking: * Challenge with Class: Taking the High Road in all Situation * I'm the Boss of Me: Becoming the Leader in Your Own Life * Kick Start Your Goals: Turning Intentions Into Actions * A Lesson in All Interactions: Giving and Accepting Constructive Feedback * No is a Complete Sentence The skills and concepts presented are applicable in both the business and personal world. "I think there is a choice possible to us at any moment as long as we live." — Muriel Rukeyser, The Life of Poetry
