Ernie was great in every way. Tiffany and I are so glad we chose him. First, we did our backyard wedding at the last minute. Ernie helped us every step of the way. We never had to worry. On the day of the wedding he was early and made everybody feel at ease. He did our ceremony exactly the way we wanted and I have to say he was a really good speaker, his words were beautiful and heartfelt. You can tell that he believes in what he is doing. My best man (he's 69) said it was the most moving wedding he's ever been to and I have to give Ernie a lot of credit for that. We highly recommend him in every way.
Cathy was amazing speaker at our wedding. She arrived on time and executed a very meaning ceremony. She incorporated our love storyline and delivered it nicely. Good job!
I haven't heard a speaker this good in a long time. We thoroughly enjoyed Carrie's talk.
David drives his coaching sessions in a friendly and, at the same time, professional manner. His coaching is really helpful to understand myself better, he never biases my decisions but asks the right questions to find the response on my own. As a coachee, David lets you find your own path and pace, which really helps. You can tell that helping others is part of David, and executive coaching one of his passions.
So far I have felt completely comfortable with Didi and feel strongly that she can assist me and my wife. I am looking forward to getting into the life coaching aspect towards completing personal goals.
Brian put me on a 6 week program to help develop certain upper and lower body parts that I wanted to focus on. I've been working out for years but Brian was able to show me some techniques that I've never seen before and they were extremely effective. He was even able to adjust the program to accommodate an old injury I had to deal with. Brian is a great listener and custom tailors the workout to fit your fitness level and to ensure you reach your goal. I highly recommend Brian as a personal trainer.
Joshua has a unique and motivational way of getting people involved. He encouraged me to get involved in things that mattered to students when we were in college. He pursuaded me to be engaged on campus and not just see colleges as only classes. Through him helping me find places to become involved, I ended up finding a passion for helping students and administration come together for the good of the school as a whole and I am now pursuing a career in higher education administration. I have found my passion and calling and if it wasn't for Joshua, that would not have been possible.
Dr Drew came to our office and gave a great speech on change management and how to use every thing as an opportunity. I wish we had him for more than just an hour. What we learned was so valuable and our attitudes have changed as a group.
Rodrigo's inner light is infectious. His approach to life and coaching is inspiring and motivating. He was able to ask me difficult questions to make me aware of my blocks, which allowed me to change behaviors that were not serving me. I highly recommend Rodrigo as a coach - he has changed my perspective on life and made me a more optimistic person.
Mike helped me with some work on a screenplay I am writing and, while the effort is ongoing, I can't imagine accomplishing it without his steady, motivational, and uber organizing voice. I unhesitatingly recommend him as a resource that you will soon find indispensable!
In September, my company Pension Advisors hosted a Client Appreciation. We wanted to have a non-industry speaker to motivate, inspire, and connect with our clients. JJ did that, and beyond. My clients ranged in industry, location, and age, and JJ was a Home Run. JJ's message to me why about hard-work, and persevering, and while a former professional athlete, he was very humble in how he talked about his approach to overcoming tremendous odds to get where his is today. I would absolutely recommend JJ to anyone. He is the real deal, and a joy to deal with. He is personable, fun, engaging, and one of the most professional people I have ever dealt with.
Cathey is amazing! She gave me a whole new way to think about my keynote and deliver my TEDX talk. She's incredibly creative, positive and supportive. You call? She's there AND she's got a process that works even if you're already a professional speaker. If Cathey agrees to coach you, count yourself lucky.
Mark did did just what we hoped for. Great team building with some great motivational points too. Still getting compliments for doing something fun and different.
I was invited to Tami's first class. The focus of the class was to love ourselves. How Ironic that it was something I had struggled with. During the class session Tami's voice, her presence of passion quickly made the atmosphere warm and inviting. By the end of class I felt loved by others, people I had just met! I also realized my passions and my beautiful, brown eyes and freckly face! Thank you for such an amazing, refreshing class! Tami Narve is a woman that exemplifies the definition of passion and you can feel it, literally!

I'll let some of my clients respond: "No president or CEO should try to run a company without a "guardian Griff" on their shoulder." K. Milne, President & CEO of Stardust Thank you so much for helping me discover my strengths and to better organize my business where I can work in those strengths and delegate the rest. J. Williams-Von Zopf, President, The Benefits Group, LLC Our time together is truly a blessing because I am able to put my burdens into trustworthy hands, confident that someone would help faithfully shoulder this part of my journey with me and ask me the kinds of questions I need to move to the next steps. C. Holt a life-coach client "Griff coached me about my emerging business and asked me some very interesting questions that led to some very specific recommendations - but back then they were not what I wanted to hear. I did follow his coaching and that was the best decision I ever made. He continues to amaze me with his insight and wisdom. I trust his counsel." T. Faley, WheelsUp Woodworking
I have thirty years of experience as an entrepreneur and business executive. I've had many failures and several nice successes. I've traveled the country and abroad as a professional speaker, trainer and keynote. Business strategy as well as tactical implementation come naturally. I am a top sales closer and trainer. I also understand technology and can explain it in easy to understand ways. I am an avid researcher and a stickler for getting the what I call the "source documents". I won't repeat an alleged fact until I know it is true. I'm also humble. :)
I am a former college football coach where I coached our athletes to give their best performances on every play. This resulted in our winning two conference championships. My programs make neural science fun and understandable and also includes best practices of elite performers. I teach people how to focus, how to influence what they pay attention to and how to create habits that will instinctively generate the actions necessary to reach their goals. There is a core of personal accountability and I'm known as "The Accountability Guy". I certainly build a case for the importance of taking responsibility and being the source versus going victim and blaming. I customize for every group and when hired I will ask about your goals, your systems and metrics, your KPI's, your daily activities and then your obstacles. I incorporate this into the presentation. This is an entertaining, high energy and fun presentation with immediately useful and relevant content. I can customize to any amount of time. I am the only speaker who presents like I do. No one else has the background that I have. I've worked with Nobel Prize winner Roger Sperry while I was a head football and wrestling coach at Cal Tech in Pasadena, CA. I had the opportunity to refine and simplify these techniques with Steve Mariucci, fellow assistant coach while at Cal State Fullerton. Steve is a former head coach for the San Francisco 49'ers and Detroit Lions and is now a broadcaster. I don't emphasize this unless you want me to. I also coached an Olympic Gold Medal winner in Greco Roman Wrestling, Jeff Blatnick, who won the gold in the 1984 Olympics.
