I haven't heard a speaker this good in a long time. We thoroughly enjoyed Carrie's talk.
Angela is a committed, spirited and effective coach. I would recommend her highly as someone who uses intuitive skills and her broad background in creative endeavors to inform her listening and coaching.
Having a very busy office job spending many hours each day at the computer, combined with being an AVID recreational tennis player who spends at least ten hours a week on the courts, I was desperately in need of a personal trainer who could help me squeeze in an invigorating, and sport specific, training schedule two days a week. To say that I found the epitome of that person in Prisco is an understatement. He is a personal trainer whose professionalism, knowledge, intuition, challenging nature and patience produce a workout that is exactly what I was looking for. Prisco always tailors our time to get the utmost out of each session. His encouragement in helping me to strive for better endurance and strength was optimal in getting me to work harder and to achieve my goals.
I have been a returning customer of Carly's. She originally helped me get a full time position at Accountemps within less than a month of working with her and when I was laid off, Carly told me that Amazon's Fulfillment Center in DuPont, WA was hiring. I applied and am working there now. For supplemental income, I also am an Uber driver thanks to Carly as well (she had met the Marketing Manager for Uber at a Chambers event). I love that I can make my own hours, use my own car, and get paid weekly via direct deposit. Carly also introduced me to performing mystery shops for local banks and stores. I do those as jobs are available in my area. Additionally, I give rides to a business colleague Carly introduced me to who has his own transportation business similar to Uber and when he is not available, I fill in with giving rides. Lastly, this past June for the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay, Carly had introduced me to the owner of Andy Frain's Security Services and I performed security duties at the U.S. Open. I cannot thank Carly enough for all the contacts and jobs that she's given to me. She just told me today about another supplemental income opportunity that involves being a "looker" when someone pays you to confirm something in person, like an out-of-state buyer who found a car online or vacation-home owners who need their property checked for damage after a storm. I applied today and hope to do that for supplemental income too. I highly recommend Carly to anyone who is looking for a job. She has a WIDE network of people she knows and she won't ever have a shortage of jobs or income generating activities. Carly is more than just a professional marketer/writer she is a motivational job coach pushing you to the best you can be always.
I've had the good fortune to know Tom for much of our adult lives. He's a natural motivator and communicator. After achieving a great deal of professional success at the expense of my personal life, I recently found myself rudderless and adrift (both personally and professionally). Tom was able to deftly and compassionately call me out on the choices and attitudes that had led to the dysfunction in my life and helped set me on a course to greater wellness and fulfillment. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone who is ready to take themselves to the next level and is willing to do the hard work to get there.
Dynamic speaker and teacher! I loved hearing about her life experiences as well as her healing process through brokenness. She is funny, relatable and authentic. She would be great for all ages, women's groups, keynote at luncheons, anything sports related, teen events, conferences or club functions.
Andy is a speaker who gives you exactly what he advertises. I have been in a position to view motivational, presentation, political and general public speaking events every year and most get the job done. Selling, convincing and debating, I usually go home educated on the subject matter. With Andy Vargo I was a bit caught offgaurd at how much his story got to me. Even though we weren't going through the exact same experience, he spoke in such a way I identified with him almost from word one. It was a super positive, I had more questions about myself than when I started. Why can't I do that, what is stopping me, if not now than when? Andy was also very approachable after the show with everyone who wanted a talk. I have heard him speak multiple times and feel his story can stand alone or be geared to specific groups in need of working through thier path.
I started the 12 week life coaching cycle with Noé knowing I wanted to be motivated, passionate, and effective in what I chose to do, but I did not know why I wanted to engage and commit to putting in my full effort. I found that when I thought I wanted something, after peeling away a couple layers, the source of that desire was some kind of insecurity. Noé helped me get past that level with his calm and supportive presence, and helped me consciously know that at the root of all I do, I want to challenge myself and continue growing. This, along with the importance of appreciation, was the most valuable experience in my time with Noé as a coach. The rest was understanding what those challenges and growth were, and creating plans to put them into motion. Those major challenges for me were learning how to manage my professional and personal life in an effective and stress free manner, and starting to develop conscious relationships with the people around me. Noé answered my barrage of questions, and helped dig to the bottom of these issues, while creating weekly assignments that put them into action. It’s been about a month since finishing my sessions with Noé, and I am continuing to grow and reassess each week with the goal and personal management system he helped me put into place. I am thankful that I went through the life coaching experience with Noé who has a solid understanding of both the emotional and practical aspects to success. I now have both the tools and motivation to confidently continue making rapid growth on my own.
Devin is a bright, dynamic, inspirational speaker. Outstanding. Highly recommended!
Barry was wonderful and our staff loved his inspirational message. It was a pleasure having him share his story with us.
I love being a creative, but Im horrible at self-promotion. Michelle is a natural at bringing out the best in others and helping them stand out from the crowd. She has been my chief editor and general promotions manager for almost 5 years now and I dont know what Id do without her. She initially presented me with a promotional plan, calendar, and a strict to-do list and because I listened to her advice, I can say that the sales for my music and book have increased by at least 30%! I only know this because she presents me with stat reports on a regular basis all I know is that I have been busier than ever with one speaking or singing engagement after another. My motivational speaking career is also finally taking off and I have been invited to speak at charity events all over California. My story is getting out there and I couldnt be happier. She asks me often, How are you doing? Can you handle more? To which I say, Yes, bring it on! Heres one example, while planning a personal vacation in Italy this last summer, I knew about a music festival and told Michelle about it. One call from her and I was booked to perform live on the stage in Italy! Im sure there were more negotiations behind it than that, but all I had to do was show up. My advice? Be good at what you do and let Michelle be good at what she does, helping you shine.
Les was an excellent speaker, coach & motivator. He did a thorough discovery process with us to determine exactly what we were looking to achieve & catered the day around our goals. He was very engaging with everyone & has a great sense of humor. Newer agents gained much needed tools & insight, while tenured agents found the information to be a great refresher for their skill sets, even learning some new items along the way. I would highly recommend Les Lent for your next Seminar or Training session - you & your employees will walk away feeling empowered!
Probably the best speaker we've had in the six years we've been holding this event. Still getting compliments on the event.
Blair is prompt to reply to all of my correspondence and questions- very professional and a man of his word. During our first session Blair put me through a series of 'tests' to see how my body moved in order to design the best program for me. He worked with the resources I had available (i.e. the equipment in my apartment building's gym) and also suggested some low cost equipment that would enhance my routine. His knowledge of physical fitness is immense and I admit I didn't understand a few of the terms he used- but he made sure I understood the most important parts. He watched me like a hawk and gave simple and direct advice on how to correct my form. The workout he designed was simple and yet very impactful- it left me feeling energized and motivated to work out more. I highly recommend Blair- he's a professional with tons of experience in training.
Excellent connector and speaker. Couldn't ask for more at our conferences.
Brooklyn was an amazing keynote speaker. She instantly connected with the audience and brought great energy to the room. She interacted with the students and got them excited for the day. She shared a wonderful story inspiring members to Take the Lead and go for their dreams.
I really enjoy Margie's smoky tone and medaldic timing. She has an honesty in her lyrics and emotion. Her vocal range is strong and warm. I would recommend her tracks to any one that enjoys originality with a pop edge!!
What a life changing experience to work with Saba. She helped to me find my purpose and passion which ultimately changed my life for the better. I walked aimlessly without knowing what my calling was. Without her knowledge and wisdom to help bring out the drive, motivation and will power I had inside myself, I wouldn't be where I am today.
I attended an event at which David was the keynote speaker. He was uplifting, inspiring, and funny. I believe those are the most important goals for a speaker to attain, and David was spot on. He truly entertained his audience.

"EXCELLENT SPEAKER!!!!!!" "What an inspiration!" "Best speaker I've ever had at these conferences. She was great!!!" Event planner: "So, no Powerpoint Presentation? Do you have at least a slide show of images?" Ali: "Nope." Event Planner: "Wow, you must be a powerful speaker to not need any props." Ali: "I'd say it's more the message that's powerful enough to stand on it's own." That's from an actual conversation with an event planner and the reviews at the very top there are from that very event. I can tell you right now that I'm not the kind with her head down, glasses on, reading from and shuffling pages, there's no power point presentation or flashy imaging (other than a cool intro video). I talk the same whether it's to a friend, a customer or a room full of Harvard professors. Ok, one exception. I do dial back on the swearing in public, but other than that, spot on, Bob's yer uncle, Frieda's yer aunt and I, am "Imperfect at its Best." I tell a compelling story straight from the heart of dealing with a daunting diagnosis through humor and a silver lining standpoint, get some laughs, maybe we all wipe a tear or two and when it's done, you're less afraid of cancer (and the other things that scare us), energized and inspired. There's big applause, even bigger hugs and affirmations and a slight dragging of the feet as we part ways because we all genuinely feel connected and had such an amazing time together (check out reviews in the Photos & Videos section). Oh, and sometimes I sing. That's a unique element to my speaking engagements is (when asked) I'll perform one of my original, Americana songs. It's my way of showing appreciation to the docs who saved (and keep saving) my lungs. Another nice touch is offering attendees a keepsake of the experience. My books and music CD covers are also customizable and make an excellent memento for conference goers. Also, for those who like a "Home town girl done good" story, I'm proud to say I was born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest~
