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

Dr. Mitch Nickols is an excellent presenter and inspiring motivational speaker. His diverse and depth of experience at organizing, consulting, and coaching really showed through when he spoke at one of our district men's meetings. Dr. Nickol's leadership skills are second to none. He was prompt, professional, and profound. There was no doubt that day. He left the men that attended our meeting with a greater sense of direction and purpose. If I could point to one drawback, it would be that we did not have enough time schedule with Dr. Nickols to go deeper into the material he was presenting.

About

I had the pleasure to have Dom Domasky be a guest motivational speaker at my Youth Basketball camp for kids K-8th grade. Not only was his words an inspiration to kids, it was to re parents, and coaching staff too. Dom used the subject matter to relate to the kids age, current daily life tasks as a kid in sports or classroom.

About

Sheila's story is incredible. I have seen her perform her book, "Warrior Mother - Fierce love, unbearable loss and rituals that heal" 5 times. Her story is compelling, inspiring and every time I watch her I am in awe! She has a gift of sharing her experiences in a fun and meaningful way. My teenager has seen her twice and after the first time brought her friends! Her story has some universal truths that apply across diverse populations. I highly recommend her as a motivational speaker.

About

Let's work together to bring a Stephen Uzelac presentation to your organization, school or community. I am a dynamic/motivational speaker, retired college professor, and co-author of Learning to Find Your Excellence. In 1960, when I graduated from high school, I was two years behind my original classmates and had a third-grade reading level. What changed my life was my belief in me and removing the false limitations others put on me. In 1999, at the age of 59 and faced with death, I was able to win my battle because of life choices and my positive, optimistic attitude. Today, I am over 72 and still able to swim a mile, walk five and bike over thirty. I believe that when people are motivated to seek and find their excellence, they can serve one another with pride, dignity and respect. Qualifications are the following: * 1990 -- Author of "Assertive Leadership the Human Side of Total Quality Team, Management, fourth edition 2003 * 2001 -- Co-author with wife Judy of "Learning to Find Your Excellence", 2004 second edition * 1971, 1972 and 1973 -- Recognized by the Ohio Jaycees as one of the top speakers in the State of Ohio * 1995 -- Teacher of the Year * 1998 -- Northwest Ohio Toastmaster of the Year I am a keynote speaker. I present in-house workshops on school and work success, safety, leadership, customer service, team building and professional/personal development. All workshops/seminars are related to productive lifestyles that keep us healthy, safe and confident. This is what some students at Spring Grove Middle School, Spring Grove, PA, had to say about me: Dear Mr. Uzelac, thank you for teaching me to believe in me. Logan Altland Dear Mr. Uzelac, thank you so much for speaking to us today. At 72, you're such an inspiration. I still have my warm fuzzy. Thank you, Lauren Dear Mr. Uzelac - Your presentation was my favorite of the day. You made so much sense and made me think and wonder about stuff. Thank you, Bruce Bailey Thank you Mr. Uzelac; You taught me to set a goals and procrastination will get you no where. I also learned I can be great. Aaron Mr. Uzelac; Thank you for coming to our school and talking to us. You have an amazing view on life and it really brightens up the room. The story of how hard you worked to improve your education and how you won your battle after coming close to death is truly inspiring. After hearing you say how much your positive attitude has helped you in life. I started thinking. Maybe I could improve my attitude and live a happier, longer life. Thank you for the inspiration. Shayna Dear Mr. Uzelac; You gave me so much inspiration to work harder and follow my dreams. I always thought so negative about myself because of people calling me short or a whore/slut even though I do nothing of the sort. The thing you said about not letting your past get in the way of your future really inspired me. You have a lot of wisdom. Also, I love the warm fuzzies, the beacon of light was the best. I'm going to start using that. Thank you so much! I'm officially inspired to work towards my goal/dream of being a guidance teacher/young grade teacher. Kayla

About

I am a connoisseur of words and organically help others with their words, both in writing and speech. I collaborate with others to develop their skills, and I draw out what is necessary to make an idea/project/goals flourish. My website,Aloha LoLo, is an adventure I have started because it is my greatest desire to help others help themselves both in mind, body and our individual self and how our individuality is what feeds the collective around us. Words are such a great from of expression and when said from the heart, and with clarity, so much can be shared and precisely communicated. I offer services in writing and editing in many subject areas because words are my passion. I also work with individuals and groups in writing in speech when seeking to create change and transformation in their personal lives. I am powerful motivational speaker and love to motivate and inspire others to motivate and inspire themselves. In addition to positive speech coaching, I teach guided meditation and the awareness of thought with intuition based nutrition and movement. My pricing is reasonable and I can create individual packages for those that need me to accommodate to a set budget. My clients have ranged from yoga teachers, psychologists, doctors, University professors, stay-at-home moms, and professional athletes.
