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 :)

Mac is a total pro. Not only did he help me lose 30+ pounds, but he is an absolute delight in the gym. He is motivational without being too pushy—and his workouts are super challenging, efficient, and fun. I can't recommend him highly enough.

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.

Carrie was one of the best speakers I've heard in a long time. She had the perfect amount of humor and empathy weaved into her talk. I got great feedback about her from the audience afterwards.

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!

Over the years, I’ve come to know Jesse to be a positive, caring, and inspirational friend. Because of this, I reached out to Jesse during a very painful event in my life about a year ago. I wanted badly to heal and move on, but struggled with the process. Jesse’s guidance helped me to focus, better understand and eventually change my thought processes and behavior through methods such as visualization and re-direction. With his compassion and guidance, I was able to work through what was for me an extremely difficult process. I highly recommend Jesse as a life coach in general for anyone who is looking for help in finding their way.

I highly recommend Gaurav at Knowledge Kinetics as a career and life coach. He is a keen observer of human interaction and is adept at reading character and motivations. His accumulated experience and education allow him to quickly assess skill sets and key strengths/opportunities at the individual level, helping his clients grow and progress professionally. Gaurav begins by investing time in open listening and observation, and quickly absorbs critical information and details. Once having formed thoughts and opinions, Gaurav is a thoroughly engaging communicator, whether addressing a single client or a large group. He effectively shares his ideas and recommendations with a personalized and customized approach that is always on target, leaving listeners inspired!   A few examples of Gaurav's coaching and consulting expertise and its impact on my own trajectory include the following: By leveraging Gaurav’s professional expertise transforming qualitative and quantitative data into insightful findings, I was able to bring added value to my larger team. This greatly benefited my organization from a business perspective, and allowed me to grow personally and professionally.   From a consulting perspective, Gaurav also worked effectively with senior leadership, and staff at all levels, to collaborate and advise on effective solutions to problem issues as an internal advisor. His sought-after counsel was a key input in organizational decisions. Whether helping guide you personally on your career and life journey, or inspiring larger teams in achieving critical organizational goals, Gaurav will prove an indispensable asset.

Joe has provided me with life coaching on multiple occasions. I have also seen his motivational speeches, and he is an excellent speaker. He is down to earth and level-headed but at the same time goal-oriented. These skills combined with his business expertise makes him a very useful resource for those looking for advice in order to get ahead in their career.

Signing up to work with Coach Clinton was one of the best things I've ever done. When I started working with Clinton, my goals were fuzzy, I was afraid to stretch myself, and I had no idea how I would break through the fog. Less than a year later, my business is exploding, I'm a sought after public speaker, and my confidence is at an all-time high. He did it for me, he can do it for you - I would recommend Clinton to ANYONE looking to take their lives and careers to the next level!

Daren is an excellent coach! Right away I was comfortable speaking with him. He is supportive and kind, while at the same time able to ask the tough questions. He listens, and amazes me with his ability to pin point exactly what I need to hear. His curiosity is so helpful, and inspired me to be curious about my life. Rewarding experience.

So, i needed a French tutor to support my learning. I have been assigned missions in Francophone Africa for work, but French was not particularly my language of choice in college. I can understand and write, but my conversational French is not good so i was looking for someone to help me. I met her through a young African association in DC and her prices were affordable. It was great for me to have a native French speaker of African descent tutor me, and with my crazy work schedule, i was grateful for her flexibility and online tutoring. Also, making the classes not boring for me is all i hoped for frankly lol. Would def recommend her! i'm making progress!!

I attended a session on Personal Development run by Ms Sawyer. I enjoyed the material that was provided in the concise, informative and engaging manner. My sole suggestion is to divide the information into smaller more digestible chunks that would allow for greater and more in-depth discussion.

Rev. Troy Denson is a delightful spirit and an encouraging Christian minister. He is of sound character; works diligently and patiently when carrying out liturgical services for the church. Rev. Denson has officiated our annual church officers installation; he has catechized ministers for ordination; and he has preached inspiring sermons when called upon. Most important, Troy is ecumenically diverse, in that he is knowledgeable of the various Christian denominational methods, and offers his services accordingly. It is a pleasure having Rev. Denson available when needed. - Rev. Charles Y. Davis, Jr.
