As the Leadership Curriculum Coordinator, I asked Mark McMillion to be a speaker on Leadership Training for a group of professionals who are a part of Leadership Harrison through our local Chamber of Commerce. I have to say that he did a fantastic job! The topic he chose to present was "Leading Across Generations" and his approach was unique and dynamic. He was able to spark the most discussion that we had ever had during one of our presentations, which our group loved! I would highly recommend him to speak again, and look forward to having him be a part of our Leadership Harrison program in years to come!

About

I am a keynote motivational speaker and trainer. I love crowds that need a boost and some levity in their conferences or meetings. Blending in important organizational themes and areas of focus into an engaging and funny presentation is my specialty. I train educational staff on classroom management and differentiated instruction seminars, student motivation and engagement. I also advise and train school officials on school safety and security. I also present on hiring and working with veterans and the troops to teachers program. I am also currently developing a School Safety and Security Program to help teachers and principals secure their schools WITHOUT making them into prisons.

Cathy is serving as my executive mentor. We meet to discuss professional goals, actions steps, ideas I'm thinking about, where Cathy's role is to provide me that objective view and hold me accountable. I call her role "poking the bear" - helping me to see things from all sides. She has helped me see my accomplishments over my career, which I viewed as "just my job," as truely extraordinary. We come to meetings with an agenda that has developed through brief email exchanges between meetings. Agenda includes a balance of positive things that have happened since we last met and the tough stuff - relationships I might be struggling with or outcomes I thought were good that others thought otherwise. I often find myself between meetings when things get tough - thinking how Cathy would help me see all sides. Cathy and I worked side by side crisping up my resume - where she did much of the heavy lifting with the resume setup and final layout. I loved the final product! We are now working together on enhancing my social media presence. Before we break from our meetings, we set the next meeting date, time, location, including top 3-5 needed accomplishments for me before our next meeting. Having the date set, with outlined needed accomplishments, gives me the push I need to stay focused. Cathy's support and professional approach is the recipe I needed for continued success.

Katherine Miracle facilitated the Opening Session at the Ohio Association of Career Colleges and Schools' "2016 Conference & Annual Meeting", as well as, two break-out sessions. The overwhelming response from the attendees was that Katherine's presentation was the BEST they've heard in years!! Katherine's passion and enthusiasm was evident during her presentations and we look forward to a long and successful relationship at our future events! On behalf of OACCS, I can sincerely recommend Katherine for any and all speaking opportunities!

We hired Karl to speak at our Career Cafe event in Columbus, OH on behalf of Harrison College. All of our communication throughout the process was a breeze and Karl was nothing short of professional, while remaining very personable. He provided one on one attention with our attendees and addressed all of their questions. His presentation was exactly what we were looking for and touched on the hot topics of: resume building, job search tactics, interview skills, confidence building, and much more. We hope to work with Karl again in the future!

About

I speak to huge crowds and small about how I've lived to tell about how my life has evolved from a living hell of alcohol and drugs to a positive citizen. How I went from a "tax-burden" to a taxpayer and how I became that qualified overcomer in God through a divine intervention that is still in operation today and is no respect of the person.

About

As an award-winning vocalist, entertainer, cancer survivor and now one of the country's top speakers, Kevin Sharp has seen and done it all. With a platinum debut album, "Measure Of A Man", scores of award nominations and a string of chart-topping hits, including "She's Sure Taking It Well," "If You Love Somebody", and the highly acclaimed "Nobody Knows" — which held the top spot on billboard's country singles chart for an astonishing four weeks, marking the best debut by a new male country singer in five years — Kevin is no stranger to musical success. Kevin has carried the same dedication into his musical career, garnering numerous award nominations, including "New Male Vocalist" from the Academy of Country Music, "New Touring Artist of the Year" from the Country Music Association/SRO, "Favorite New Country Artist" from the American Music Awards, Billboard Magazine's "Best New Country Video" and TNN/Music City News Awards "Male Star Of Tomorrow." He was on Billboard Magazine's top 10 list for both country artist and country album. He picked up a trophy for the CMT "Rising Male Video Star of the Year" and was crowned the "Sexiest Man" by Sacramento's News and Review. His amazing story has been showcased by media outlets including "Live with Regis and Kathie Lee," "Entertainment Tonight", "Good Morning America" and national publications such as USA Today, The Los Angeles Times and People Magazine. More than one Hollywood studio hopes to reach an even wider audience with an upcoming made-for-television movie about Kevin's life and career. Kevin Sharp combines a potent motivational speaking presentation with several of his hope-filled songs, ending with a video that will leave audience members wanting to achieve their own dreams and goals. We live in a world that is spiritually, mentally, physically and morally bankrupt. Kevin can and will inspire your audience to hold on, fight, never give up and change the things in their lives that may be keeping them from fulfilling their goals and living personally and professionally at maximum potential.

I am a full-time public speaker for the past 39 years. I am French-Canadian and a native American and reside in North Canton, Ohio. I share many presentations that relate to inspirational, educational, motivational, and autobiographical messages on child abuse, family violence, overcoming disabilities, diversity, poverty, racism, educational integration, community wellness, spiritual issues, alcoholism, and bullying. I'll be speaking on Macaroni at Midnight.

About

As one newspaper article said, "So-called inspirational speakers. Let's admit it, there are a dime a dozen. Tom Starr, however, is to the average motivational speaker what a Ferrari is to a wheelbarrow." Tom Starr has a life story so remarkable and so genuinely inspiring, that if you made it into a movie script, it would probably be rejected as too implausible and over-the-top. Starr's two liver transplants are at the center of the story he has to tell; but, there's more to his life than that. Tom's storyteller skills have been honed running sales training at Xerox Corporation and hundreds of presentations around the world to entrepreneurs, executives of for-profit and not-for-profit corporations, and thousands of sales professionals. Often described as "the connector" for "connecting friends with friends who can help each other profit from their passion," guests at Tom's presentations seminar leave motivated to attack their "bucket list" with secrets that will help them identify and live their passion. Twice in his life, Tom has been told he had less than a 50/50 chance to survive more than 90 days. Starr has become a tireless advocate for organ, tissue and blood donation (he has needed more than 200 units blood just for his transplants). Tom's foundation, Miracles for Life is dedicated to inspiring children battling life-threatening illnesses or recovering from life-saving organ and tissue transplants to "be as great as they can be." Everyone who wants a more fulfilling and rewarding professional, personal or family life needs to hear Tom's story. Book him today!
