Malik was an outstanding asset to our corporate event. He is professional, entertaining and an exceptional magician. Our crowd of 70+ was highly impressed with his skills. We would absolutely use him again. We had nothing but rave reviews and really are happy with his service. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for entertainment. Malik made the process of hiring him easy and fast from beginning to end. Top notch personality as well.

I recently had a Teambuilding event with my Operations group and was a bit skeptical at first as to whether having a Magician would "work" as an introduction to our ability to tackle the impossible. Well, I could not have been more pleased with Matt's act as he worked closely with me on integrating my theme into his presentation. He was punctual, prepared, fun, engaging, professional and the group loved his act. I would highly recommend Matt! Ward Naylor

We worked on my monologue. Bren was professional and extremely helpful. She is easy to work with and brings expertise and compassion to the coaching sessions. I left feeling that I'd accomplished what I wanted and also got tools to help me in my career.

I have worked with Jim for over 10 years and he has never disappointed. From motivational seminars to targeted, multi-level customer service training, Jim has consistently delivered the pin-point focus and powerful insight I was aiming for. If you need somebody to help you raise your organization's performance -- or a candid, honest opinion to tell you change is needed -- Jim is your guy!

I've been working with Andy off and on for several years. He's a powerful coach and won't listen to excuses. Which is what you really need in a coach. You need someone who will speak directly and truthfully to help motivate you to action. He's got such great energy once I had a session with him that seemed to lift me for weeks!

To whom it my concern: I had the great fortune of a serendipitous introduction to Ms. Iafrate during a marketing program to develop an outreach campaign. We had a simple phone call exchange. I hung up I said to myself “either that woman is a direct descendant of PT Barnum or I just got off the phone with one of the most authentic, sincere and dynamic women that ever came across the bow of Grab The Torch” I was so impressed, and to a certain degree intrigued and curious to meet her, I scheduled a lunch. I was delighted that it was the latter. After lunch, I knew she would be invited to speak at our 2016 Boston Institute. As the founder of a Leadership, Ethics, Empathy and Philanthropy Institute every speaker and panelist that I select must fit perfectly with our mission, so you can imagine how careful I am in the process. This was a very good decision. Ms. Iafrate was the final speaker of the day. She followed The John Hancock/Boston Marathon and WGBH/William Lowell of the Lowell Institute. The pervious speakers delivered great content, but it had been a very long day for the girls. She had been sitting in the audience surveying and getting a pulse of the day, along with the ‘temperature’ of the girls. Even the most seasoned and professional speakers find that time of day, combined with being a first-time presenter a tough and intimidating time slot. She walked on stage and in an almost unimaginable way, immediately flipped a switch unleashing excitement and engagement in a thoughtful and meaningful way. She was prepared and ready to provide a launching pad for the girls. The presentation moved along at a pace that stimulated reflection and participation, without losing them for a second. She drew them in, opened their minds to new ideas and processes. She gave them a clearer lens to view themselves and others around them. She then turned the tables and unleased them. The room was abuzz with laughter and excitement, accompanied by a purposeful call to action. The execution was flawless. I, without any reservation or hesitation wholeheartedly recommend and endorse Ms. Iafrate. I think the following statements directly from the girls are more powerful than anything I could ever say. “The way Ms. Iafrate connected with us and spoke to us like equals made me truly want to absorb everything she said. Her ability to successfully communicate her tips in a succinct and sometimes humorous manner is what makes her unforgettable. Forever leaning in” “I never thought two words (lean in) would ever have such a profound impact on me. It wasn’t the phrase, but how it was delivered to me. Ms. Iafrate open the door to a new and enlighten way to lead my life. My favorite speaker of the week at GTT” Dave Aldrich Founder and CEO Grab The Torch

Aaron is a dynamic and energetic speaker who within minutes had our students hooked on his positive message and thought-provoking questions. He spoke to the students about believing in themselves and challenges them all to visualize their great qualities. He has also done performances and sang at our graduation ceremonies for the past two years. Not only is his motivational speaking great, but he is just a real, compassionate and caring person. His dedication to supporting youth is inspiring.

It is my pleasure to share my thoughts about Tamika Fowler. We worked together at a financial consulting company where she served as our "HR Guru". She was an integral part of the operations team, and always brought a positive light to any project she worked on. Tamika displayed extraordinary professionalism, dedication, responsibility and commitment to her work, and had the unique ability to identify and solve problems. Even under pressure, and during stressful deadlines, Tamika was mature, respectable, and patient. She is highly motivated and organized, and has good written and verbal communication skills. She works well with others, both internal and external clients, and is very helpful. I am excited that her next goal is law school, and hope she is hired so that she can make that happen.

    “Dale, Karen, and Sharon are amazing motivational speakers - funny, engaging, and smart. They weave stories into the topic that engages the audience and makes it easier to understand the information they are communicating. I’ve heard them speak many times about small business development, marketing, work life balance and they are always on point and great.”
