If you were lucky you’d be able to meet a couple people in your lifetime that you can truly call a “sage.” Vision, commitment, perceptiveness, analytical brilliance, integrity and compassion; this is the essence of Gene. His deep experience, knowledge, and professionalism enable him to deliver successful results on any work he engages. He is extremely intelligent and highly adept at assessing issues in stagnant, under-performing environments and his innate ability to turn things around is unparalleled. He is an incredibly engaging facilitator, capturing the attention and hearts of those he engages in workshops, keynotes, or consulting engagements. He taught me to see everything as a part of a bigger system and that changed my perception and enabled me to become a much better professional as well as a better person.

Recently, Dr. Fero ended our company leadership workshop on the highest of high notes. Dr. Fero delivered a passionate keynote on how to effectively lead others on a daily basis. The Ten Bases of Leadership is not just a baseball theme, it is a leadership theme that every person can benefit from to help unleash the leader within. We appreciated how he incorporated our company vision, products, and mission into the presentation. Leadership delivered in the most professional, personalized, and motivating way. Thank you for everything!

About a year ago I went through a very hard time in my life and was diagnosed with anxiety and panic disorder. I was unable to leave my home and my life was at a stand still. After speaking with Christa I decided to hire her as my life coach to try and help me out of my darkness. That was the best decision I have ever made. Through her caring knowledge and professionalism she pulled me out of the worst time in my life. She coached me through every doctors appointment and guided me through the toughest of days. To this day I still need her help and coaching to get through some of my daily tasks.

It is a pleasure to be coached by Deidre. She has coached me multiple occasions throughout the years. She has shown me how to confidently step out of my comfort zone. She is patient and grounded in maintaining a positive outlook in all situations. She will take you to the top of your goal list with a step by step coaching plan. She has helped me with my career and kept me motivated to stay on track with my career goals. If she caught me slipping she put her foot down because she wants to see me win. She is like the personal trainer at the gym that pushes you to the point you want to give up. Then you see the results and come running back for her services. I work with her to this day and she is my go to person in all areas of my life. She has the expertise to make your goals a reality. I highly recommend her coaching services if you want to make your dream goals a reality. Deidre is definitely the person to hire for all your aspirations.

Diana was wonderful and engaging and our audience loved her presentation. She was able to connect with every person in the room on both a personal and professional level. Throughout her presentation, Diana generated the emotion we were looking for to motivate our audience. Her message to "empower people to feel fully alive and authentic" came through loud and clear. I've been attending leadership conferences for years and would highly recommend Diana as an inspirational speaker with a great message about what it takes to be an effective leader in any organization.

    I have had the pleasure to hear Ron speak on several different occasions. What comes through to me first is his genuine approach. He is simultaneously a credible expert, yet allows a sense of vulnerability which makes him “real’” and accessible. The second take away is Ron’s vast experience and knowledge in business and sales management gives his presentation real-world relevance. Drawing on his 30 years of personal experience – success and failure - brings great value to his audience. The third trait is his professionalism. Ron has the ability speak to specific sales or management issues as well as be an powerful key-note speaker – and everything in between. I would highly recommend Ron for your next speaking engagement.

    I have been a client of Carla Zilka's for the last 4 years. I was drawn to her studio by her intelligence, talent and her strong dedication to her students. She truly cares about making the world a better place through her teaching. She is a true life long learner and makes it a point to share all her knowledge with her students. Her classes are like none other. I always leave her studio intellectually challenged and motivated. She has been instrumental in helping me reduce anxiety and stress by teaching me recognize the many ways habitual negative thought patterns block happiness. As a yoga teacher she taught me how I held on to stress in my body, but more importantly she showed me how I held on to stress in my mind. I've learned that the simple step of changing my thoughts could dramatically change how I lived my life. She introduced me to great books and teachings that helped explain the laws of attraction and our own ability to create positive outcomes. I can't say enough positive things about Carla. I am truly blessed to have found such an amazing teacher.

    While I was the District 46 Public Relations Manager I recruited Peter to assist in Public Relations and Social Media training efforts for the entire district. Peter designed easy to follow sessions and was consistently one of our top rated trainers. He delivered a number of training sessions around the NYC and Westchester areas. I highly recommend him for any motivational speaking or training needs. Gregory Scotland Toastmasters International District 46 Public Relations Manager 2016-2017

    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.
