Hired MerMan to perform for a scholarship fundraiser luncheon. He had the group laughing from the start and then rotated among the tables entertaining on a more personal level. We appreciated his support and sense of humor.

Brandy is great to work with. She is very professional and super knowledgeable about nutrition and training. She gets to know you on a personal level to help you overcome any obstacles that you may have that would keep you from reaching your goals. She is a great motivator and wants you to succeed! Would recommend her to anyone.

As a busy mom, wife and traveling professional and speaker, I attend conferences and events across the country. I typically go to my standard, black or navy blue dress or suits - but after my discovery session with Shayla, attending her online workshops and virtual styling advice, I felt like I could take my wardrobe to the next level. She gives great advice on mixing colors, patterns and outfit suggestions that fit your style and body type - which is important for me when speaking in front of a crowd of colleagues. The past 2 conferences I’ve attended, Shayla has helped me immediately with virtual styling and I felt like I not only commanded to room, but I felt proud and confident to include my personality in my professional style. Shayla has amazing style, expertise and is so willing to help. Shayla, I can’t thank you enough! Joy Rush, Virtual Style Client

    One the best motivational speakers I have ever heard. From his struggles growing up as a child to becoming an Olympic athlete. He has helped me shape my life in such a powerful way, I wish they were more than five stars that could be given.

    We had asked David to be the guest speaker at Nancy Chandler Associates Realtors annual kick-off breakfast. David exceeded everyone's expectations! His speech was highly motivational, full with great contents, humor and passion. David really knows how to capture the audience and encourage participation. His enthusiasm and positive energy was so contagious! We wouldn't hesitate to hire him again. He is excellent at what he does! Thank you David!

    I enjoyed meeting Author Tumeki Griffen! From the first time that I met Ms. Griffen, I felt like I had always known her. I was excited to attend WE1A First Annual Fundraiser Dinner in Norfolk, Virginia on 9/16/2017. I live in Anderson, South Carolina and I was determined to get back to the event so the that I could continue to grow. When I had questions, I got a response quickly which was very important since I lived out of town. Anyone in Business would say, when you're trying to get to a certain place, begin to surround yourself around like minded people. I see that Author Tumeki Griffen does this! I didn't realize that I was going to be in the midst of several authors the night of the event. That night really sparked some things in me! I volunteered to take photos at the event. As a photographer, I know that pictures say a lot! I just wanted to be a Blessing to others! Author Charlotte Williams and Author Dr. Earle Williams along with Author Tumeki Griffen poured their heart's out. They didn't hold anything back from us and that's what people need! They were bold and real with their messages and they kept us engaged. I didn't want any of them to stop sharing! I'm looking forward to more events!

    I was very excited with all the information that was provided. I am grateful that someone who travels the world, would grace us with her presence. Often people are too busy to reach back for those who need help. The information that was given, made me realize that I am not alone on my new journey to gain back my life. I am very interested in networking with others. I was given value and validation that my life matters. My experiences matter. My pain matters. No matter what obstacles I face. I can jump higher, run longer, and be a beacon of light to others. I hope one day to be standing in front of a crowd telling my stories. Lakeisha McKnight is a light! She is very approachable. We need more people like her. I might be small. But, I dream big! I thank Sankofa for reaching out to her and having her as a guest speaker!

      It was a pleasure working with Dr. Daryl Crosby. We had an event at our school titled "Dinner with Dads". Dr. Crosby was the keynote speaker at our event. He exhibited nothing but professionalism from the planning stages through the culmination of the event. Dr. Crosby took the time to research the school, it's history, and the reason for the event. During his keynote address, Dr. Crosby connected with the audience through topics relevant to them and their children. The event attendees left that evening inspired to improve themselves for the benefit of their children. I would be honored to work with Dr. Crosby again in the future.
