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!

Ron Shua is a great speaker but better yet an excellent teacher. He immediately captures his audience with his sense of humor and positive attitude. The information that he delivers makes sense and is easy to relate to. My team looks forward to session with Ron Shua and that is a rare find!

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.

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.

Robert Tudisco is an extraordinarily engaging and compelling speaker on a variety of subjects within his wide-ranging areas of expertise. We have had capacity audiences attend his talks on ADHD and transition planning, and were fortunate that he did a masterful job as MC at our 2017 gala, Celebrating Kids' Strengths.

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!

I had the pleasure of hosting Strongman Eric Moss for an event at Montclair State University in November of 2015. As a professor of world religions I am always looking for ways to offer practical extensions of the different spiritual practices I teach in my class. In my quest to find interesting speakers to demonstrate the determination and focus of the great eastern philosophies, I found Eric Moss. He had already spoken multiple times in Sports Psychology classes here at the university and came highly recommended. Eric arrived prepared with audio visual enhancements, props, and his outstanding story telling talent. My students were captivated. It is difficult to hold my students attention sometimes, but when they sit for an entire presentation without once looking at their phones you know they're interested. Eric does more than simply bend steel, a feat that is amazing in itself. He weaves a life story into his demonstration that humanizes his show of strength. Although you may not leave with the ability to bend steel, you will leave with a new mindset that lends itself to high achievement. I highly recommend Eric Moss as a speaker for corporate events, professional development, schools, clubs, and gatherings for all ages. His professionalism and talent are laudable. His presentation is uniquely engaging and the positive motivation he provides is priceless. Most Sincerely, Prof Lisa Sargese Dept of Religion Montclair State University

When it comes to his talk he was a crowd favorite and I would be ecstatic to work with him in the future. He was captivating and extremely liked by the audience.

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.

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.

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.
