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.

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 :)

I hired John Verrico to speak at our annual company retreat and everyone found him to be funny, refreshing and motivating. He opened with a participatory exercise that got everyone out of their chairs and laughing. He really energized the room but was also able to transition that energy to deliver poignant takeaway messages that we could all reflect on after the speech. If you are looking for a quality speaker for your event, John Verrico is highly recommended!

Dr. Joel Freeman was a joy to work with from the beginning of the planning, to the completed presentation! He was able to keep the attention of the audience the entire time! Some of their comments: o This presentation zeroed in on how to communicate and deal with different personalities and how to make the work place a better place. o Kept my attention. Very positive and informative. o He was one of my favorite speakers. o Really enjoyed Dr. Freeman. I learned a lot of new ideas and different ways to get along, deal and understand people. I would highly recommend Dr. Freeman to anyone looking for a charismatic, intelligent and substantive speaker!

Tom is great, and easy to work with. We did a 2-hour public speaking workshop for 10 staff members, and he was willing to adjust the agenda to meet our needs. He did a combination of theory, tips, and practice exercises where everyone got the chance to practice and receive feedback.

Amazing experience having him as a guest speaker to motivate my team of over 20 individuals! His energy alone will put life back into your staff. The culture of my team is now revamped and I can’t praise him enough for how my team is now producing. If you’re having trouble getting your team into shape or maybe they’re just lacking that proactive attitude, contact this guy! He’s definitely worth it.

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.

I am still in "awe" with the coaching I received from Eric on how to maintain a relationship with my customers long after my motivational session is over! As a Motivational Speaker and founder of MotivateMe.Biz, I would conduct seminars and give motivational speeches to my clients. However, once my session was over, that was pretty much it. I never had any follow-up opportunities to offer my clients. It was merely shake hands and go home. I explained my dilema to Eric asking, how can I keep my foot in the door to return at a later time. Eric came up with the most profound solution that would allow me to soar if executed correctly. Need I say more, so far, every client I have contracted to speak at their company, under Eric's coaching, will not only have me give a motivation speech to their organization, but with the proposal I presented to them, for the next 5 weeks, I will be visiting their employees to speak on subject matters that has been customized for their organization only. This is such a great opportunity and my calendar is filling up quickly. I can no longer handle my contractual obligations solo. I have enlisted another member of my staff to assist me. Eric, I can not thank you enough. Bravo and Bravo to you!! www.motivateme.biz really appreciates the business!!

I had heard Gary Lloyd before a few years ago. He was great and memorable. We have a well vetted and known speaking club and I wanted to get Gary to present to us. We had over 80 people and they loved his storytelling. Gary kept to a time of 30 minutes we had allocated. He left them wanting more. He was so good and engaging. They had lots of questions and the feedback was a total success. There was not even a 'luke' warm response. He was a winner for all! Thanks Gary!

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.

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!

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!
