We asked Vladimire to come speak to college aged students. She was flexible and worked with our requests. She engaged our students with a relevant motivational topic, and had a great presence in the room. Students enjoyed listening to her speak and felt inspired to succeed. Vladimire was professional and courteous throughout the whole experience. We would recommend her as a motivational speaker.

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!

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.

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. Jim’s 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 Jim’s 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 to—and feeling inspired to engage with—Jim’s message, you and those you lead will feel a renewed sense of joy and positivity Jeffrey Freidman

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.

Ronnie Nunn is a mentor, friend and my former HS bsketball coach. He is a man of intergity, sound principles, high morality and devoted to the development of people. He has always kept in touch with me and has assisted me with my personal and professional development. Whenever I have called upon him to speak to a group or just one individual he has always made himself available. He is a great speaker. He possesses tremendous interpersonal skills and connects with our very diverse society. I am a better person today due to the impact Ronnie Nunn has made in my life. I have invited Coach Nunn to speak to my student-athletes on a several occasion. He always leaves his audiences wanting more and if given the opportunity he will "move your crowd" as well.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
