My (work) team and I were looking for a motivational speaker to come in to speak with us about team building and inspiration to 'Win Together.' Jen was the perfect fit for this, bringing in her own personal experiences while also engaging us with her fun spirit and great sense of humor. I would invite her to speak again for us in the future and definitely recommend her for anyone looking for a genuine and effective session!

Our entire team was really impressed with Jen's inspirational stories. Her words came straight from her heart. We all related to them because most of us have experienced what she went through (won't go into details. You should hear it yourself) I would recommend her to other companies as a motivational speaker.

As a career coach, Karen is a great listener and approaches my needs in job searching professionally and kindly. She is on point with my strengths and weaknesses giving me excellent suggestions that I can utilize right away to make me succeed. Karen's interest in my success goes beyond my expectations and makes me want to do more because it's a wonderful gift to have someone "on your side" cheering and working for you to succeed, this is how she made me feel when speaking on the phone. I feel her personal interest that I achieve my goals. I highly recommend Karen as a career coach and hope to continue to work with her in the future. Gigi

She was there exactly when I needed her. She was very kind and professional but wasn’t afraid to ask uncomfortable questions to get to the real answers. Very insightful conversations with her. I learned a lot and she kind of guided me in the right direction when I was very lost. Wish I didn’t live so far away because I would love to sit down and meet her. She really inspired me. I honestly can’t say enough good things about her.

Motivational Speaking.... Thank you so much for helping our cancer survivors "Celebrate Life" . Your inspirational words along with how we can use heath and healing through Zumba was outstanding. We now understand the benefits of physical activity for survivors and how to best tailor our individual exercise programs. I never thought about dance as just moving to music. I hope you will celebrate with us again next year!!

Coach Monique spoke to our organization during our celebration of National Business Women’s Week. As an organization of business professional women, Monique gave us tips on reducing stress and harnessing our thoughts to help improve our skills both in/out of the workplace. Coach Monique was excellent in communicating with our group and delivered a tailored inspirational message aligning with our group’s mission. Her communication was outstanding in responding to our email inquiries and answering questions quickly. Days later, and we are still receiving messages from our members and guests regarding how they thoroughly enjoyed Monique. Several members have also commented they have implemented her tips for stress reduction and already have been seeing a change in their life and routine.

The need for confidence, resiliency and stress management are huge for realtors. Between housing market fluctuations, the economy and the sales cycle, it can often be feast or famine and realtors who aren't positive, have realistic optimism and tenacity aren't going to last. Monique spoke at our sales conference and did a fantastic job. She educated us on brain-science and emotional intelligence and why we struggle and then taught us easy tools and techniques to overcome it. If you are looking for an engaging, funny and professional speaker, Monique should be your next call.

The holistic, professional and individualized nature of this program is excellent! Arianne sincerely wants us all to improve our physical, mental and emotional health and she has taken great pains to experiment with how best to teach and motivate. She is 100% qualified, dedicated and sincere and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to know her and attend these sessions!

Andrea L.

Verified review

Working with Arianne's Movement Paradigm goes beyond her excellent skills as a PT. What's more valuable to me is her extensive background of movement experiences and trainings outside of normal everyday personal training or rehab arts. Because of this, I have set higher standards and expectations of my own movement goals outside of boring everyday training methods!!

I don't know that I actually engaged in the movement paradigm but the workshop I did attend was extremely informative. I enjoyed the application pieces and the handouts!

This summer, I participated in a P10 workshop run by Penny... it/she was outstanding. She is a great motivational speaker, but matched it with sound, concise and easy to understand and apply principles. I have also read her book and find it one of the most useful pieces of guidance -- and not only for my work, but for my personal life as well.

I requested information(a message) on "dreams and goals". Because I was feeling discourage about my dreams and goals. I received the information( message) in a timely manner. Pastor Stef, message was very informative, uplifting and he was transparent. He shared realistic situations about the importance or having dreams and goals. He also gave helpful bible verses that talked about dreams. I'm now encouraged to keep believing in my dreams and my goals.

I've seen Pasto Stef preach a few times now. I would have to say he is both an informational and inspirational teacher. His messages aren't light, so you really have to be hungry for growth to enjoy him. If you just want some one to make you feel good for a short time so you can go back home no different than when you left, he isn't the man for you. I can't wait to see him again!

Pastor Stef is the ultimate professional, and has an innate ability to relate and motivate people. It's not everyday that you hear a speaker that can be so profound while yet remain practical and even make you laugh while gaining a plethora of insight. I'd highly recommend him to speak and engage with people on all levels.

I was so grateful for the opportunity to participate in Health Coach program. I really looked forward to our meetings every week and felt energized and positive about every interaction. The modules were easy to follow and understand with great relevance to real world living. One of the things I appreciated most about the coaching program was that it wasn’t only about diet or food; it truly applied to every area of a full and busy life. Motivation, relationships, emotional well-being, tools & tactics for how to approach or handle different scenarios, and the fact that everything had an anchor as a reminder was a great way to incorporate the program’s elements into everyday life. Kathie has a natural way of making people feel validated and help them explore their feelings in a comforting way while guiding them to their own conclusions of cause & effect. The plan never felt like a chore or that I couldn’t succeed because there was always a positive outcome or realization. Visualization and tactical reminders were great for reinforcement of the end goal. I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking to make a change in their life and focus; particularly with Kathie as the guide, it’s sure to be an enjoyable journey!!

When I signed up with Kathie Iannuzzi with From Within I was lost about my career path. After meeting with her over several weeks she really guided me in helpful steps to really pinpoint my career calling and open my eyes to opportunities. Every week there was a tangible task laid out that was completely attainable and beneficial to my search. She is relatable, a great listener, and frank in a respectful and insightful way. Not only was I able to work on my career path but also had some life “aha moments” that will help land my dream job and really focus on my top priorities.

Kathie was my Health Coach in the summer and fall of 2017. Early on, she asked questions about what was going great in my life and what I wanted to improve. Kathie then worked with me to set realistic goals for myself. Each week during our coaching session, she had a well thought out approach to discussing my progress and coaching me to learn the importance of positive self talk and personal encouragement. In just 90 days time, I achieved a significant amount of progress towards my goals and I loved Kathie’s coaching style! Caryn

At the age 47 and a little out of shape, I needed to get in top physical shape for a police academy. (In New Jersey the age limit for police officers is 35, but there is no age limit for correction and sheriffs dept)...... so I new if I wanted this job in corrections, I had to be ready, and if anybody has been to any police academy, you know it's a para military atmosphere. Screaming at you from day one, not caring about your feelings. Their only concerns is that you will be physically and mentally strong in law enforcement environment. The first Day I walked in, I talked to Bob about my mental and physical weaknesses, and he told me not to worry, and to listen to everything he had to say moving forward. I literally felt at ease from that moment on. Now it wasn't always easy, Bob pushed my mental and physical abilities beyond I thought I could ever reach, and after 6 months of running, sprinting,spinning,rowing,pull-ups, push-ups, weight training, jump roap, etc., I found myself in the best physical and mental shape of my life. Bob is more than just a trainer, he is a trainer, a life coach, a friend, (and even an enemy, lol when he had to be). I am proud to say that on July 12, 2016 I graduated as a New Jersey Juvenile Justice Commission corrections officer, cycle 29 and have been working in the jail ever since, and I couldn't be happier about my new career in law enforcement, but most of all, I couldn't of been happier about the choice I made walking into Bob's studio, because I know I could have never done it on my own. Sometimes in life we need a little help to get to the next level, and that's why I made the investment in myself to get to the next level with Bob Pelsang!!!!! Sincerely, S.C.O. T. Venezio

Azam was the 6th speaker and he quickly transformed the energy of the room from overwhelmed with information to joyous and engaged. The moment he walked in front of the audience, his body language demonstrated his passion for his talk. One of the distinctions he made for me was the ability to tell the difference between happiness and pride in my life. He honestly shared his story with the audience and took everyone on a motivational journey. Several folks communicated to us after the event how grateful they were in the audience to discover potentials for their life. I highly recommend Azam Khan Arvin Khamseh Co-Founder and Co-Organizer of Speakers’ Annex

We invited Leslie to conduct a teaching workshop for our annual faculty retreat. She was fantastic! She was clear and engaging. She offered lots of concrete teaching strategies which were well supported by the scholarly research on teaching and learning. Even some of the most reluctant and skeptical faculty participants left excited about her ideas and suggestions!

I gave Dennis a true challenge - Prepare me for a meeting at work that would require I present myself as well as work I had compiled for a very high profile project. The audience would include top officers of my company. I have a very debilitating affliction - I cannot introduce myself or speak about myself in these settings. The challenge was exacerbated by the fact that I called Dennis on a Wednesday and the meeting was scheduled in two days. Bottom line is - one session had me on my way and a followup session the next day enabled me to perform like a polished public speaker. Thanks again Dennis.

My husband and I met with Dennis for 8 life coaching sessions after feeling like we individually were stuck in a rut. Dennis is kind and genuine. He helped us to focus on finding the courage within ourselves to start focusing on achieving our dreams and why we have been holding ourselves back. He also promotes "wins" and positive thinking. I miss our sessions already and would encourage others to meet with him.

Been to a few life coaching sessions over the years and Denny was by far the best. Easy to talk to, engaging, light hearted, and compassionate....all the necessary qualities to allow you to open up and share the things most necessary for healing and living a positive and joyful life. Very real and realistic life coaching. He helped me greatly and I would recommend him to anyone.

About

I believe in the three "Cs" of motivational speaking: Content, Chemistry and Control. There is an annointing in great public speakers that impacts the audience in ways that are greater than just the message. It is a combination of tone, passion, volume, body language and expression. These are the qualities that make Tryst Anderson stand out from a teacher, professor or common speaker. It in essence is his ability to take these qualities and weave together a new story for each audience that hears him speak. National and regional organizations have invited him back for multiple presentations over many years. No organization wants a "canned" presentation and that is the ultimate difference than other speakers on Thumbtack. Custom program content based upon the real needs of the organization.
