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!
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.

My speeches have turned insecure students into successful employees and managers. I constantly receive feedback from colleagues regarding the superiority demonstrated by those students who have been exposed to my motivational speeches and activities. In addition to speeches, I have also trained in high and low ropes for team and individual self-mastery. I have worked with: ATT, Ciba-Geigy, Internal Revenue Service, Strick Trucking, Spectrum Inc., Montefiore Hospital, Cellular One, Girl Scouts of America, Hoechst Celanese, and Daytimers International.
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.

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
As a first time Thumbtack user, I wasn't sure what to expect when I logged onto the site and began searching for speakers to talk at our company's corporate retreat. I was lucky enough to connect with Chris, and she was an absolutely perfect fit. Her charisma, knowledge, humor, and motivational personality captivated our audience and her presentation provided them with valuable take-aways. The lessons and suggestions Chris provided are currently being implemented at our organization and I am confident they will bring about the change we were looking for. Though Chris typically deals with a larger audience, she was able to tailor her presentation to our 40-person group and focus on points that were most relevant to us. I am so happy to have found Chris through Thumbtack and would highly recommend her!
Mark is a powerhouse speaker. The UpTheBiz Lunch and Networking group took away valuable information and content to use in their businesses immediately.
