Pastor Dave Zuchelli was the perfect minister to marry my husband and I at our lakeside ceremony. I have been at other friends' weddings and seen ministers mess up important names, completely change the order of the ceremony and more, but I had no doubt in my mind that Pastor Zuchelli would lead the ceremony just as we had discussed. He is an eloquent speaker who is sincere in his words and also knows how to make the ceremony funny and light when the bride and groom are nervous! He also kindly stood in the rain and mist with us at both our rehearsal and the ceremony because we wanted the outdoor ceremony so badly! Many thanks to Pastor Dave for making our ceremony one we will never forget :)

Coach Lynn wrote a resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile for me. She was able to identify my strengths and highlighted them well. She also provided motivational coaching throughout my job search and interviewing process. I highly recommend her services to job seekers.

Dr Joel is incredibly talented, worked within my budget and gave me the best service. He is a great motivational speaker, I thank God for meeting him. Everybody in his training class was happy and highly motivated. His training session was rated the best of my 7days program by my group from Nigeria. He is awesome, I would love to work with again and again.

John was everything we were looking for in a motivational speaker. He talked about servant leadership and contrasted it with classical management (top-down), all the while using stories and humor. Many of our attendees told me privately that they liked John and thought he did a good job. I recommend him for others.

I have worked with Jill in a number of different ways: Jill served as a consultant and coach to an internal creative team building committee which I chaired at my work place. She brought so much value to the process, from her deep knowledge of team building practices to her thoughtful listening skills and her enthusiasm and energy level. I have also observed Jill in her capacity as Wellness Director for a public higher education facility. She recruited and prepped outside trainers so their involvement with the audiences was targeted and responsive to the strategic plan of our HR division. Jill has also functioned as the trainer herself, where she is engaging and engaged with the audience; able to couple spontaneity with a deep professional knowledge; and deeply attuned to the audience's needs. Jill is an exceptional motivational speaker and her passion and commitment to serving her audience is a delight!

Marc Hayes was recommended to me by a co worker. I always thought life coaching was a joke, but my life was going nowhere. I started telephone consultations with Coach Marc and things began to improve for me immediately. Things began to change for me for the better after one 30 minute coaching session. After the second consultation I started getting my life together. I highly recommend Coach Marc.

Al Betz is one of the icons in our industry. He is an amazing speaker, incredible encourager and overall outstanding person. Al came to speak at the Texas Court Reporters Association Annual Convention in June of this year (2015) and did an absolutely phenomenal job. I cannot say enough about how big his heart is for the court reporting profession!

    Jim Liggett is one of the finest motivational speakers I have seen in my 30-year management career. One of his best talks is called "The Secret to Business Success" where he enters the room carrying a box with the word "Secret" labled on it. He proceeds to talk about how building trust through employee relations is the key to meeting and exceeding business goals. But it's at the end when he removes the contents of the box that the audience gets a message that they will never forget. Go see him if you ever get the chance.

    Vincent Barnett is the most inspirational speaker that I've seen thus far! He leads every thought and discussion with such an optimistic point of view, I believe that it is truly part of his core visions and values…he seems to live and breathe it. His story of hardship and small triumphs offer a fresh perspective and a level of reality that leaves you motivated and wanting to take action and win. Not only that, he's a standup guy and very personable, it's like you're listening to a best friend, someone you trust and believe in. It doesn't hurt that he's funny too! Absolutely one of the best!

    This was a little bit of a risk for us since we don't normally have speakers like Mark at our convention. But it was a huge success. He had good content and the entertainment portions of his keynote definately made him the crowd favorite.
