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.
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.
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 haven't heard a speaker this good in a long time. We thoroughly enjoyed Carrie's talk.
Margie Chadburns music will exalt you and motivate you to enhance your meaning of life, all while making you feel majestic and want to jump out of your seat to dance along with her! At her concert she came out to sing and dance with the audience. It was so much fun! I absolutely love her silvery, booming voice! Her music speaks to your soul to live a fulfilling life, I love her song 'Don't Die Young', but I adore all her music! I can't wait to go to her next concert! You can tell she loves what she does by the phenomenal performance she gives. You can tell she cares about everyone around her by the way she treats everyone with kindness!
Devin is a bright, dynamic, inspirational speaker. Outstanding. Highly recommended!
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!
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.
Patrick is a pleasure to work with and creates HUGE results! His organizational skills and straightforward approach, balanced with a unique level of sensitivity and intuition, are motivating and inspiring. He has transformed the way that I run my business and has given me incredibly valuable tools. I owe a great deal of my success and most importantly, my happiness, to what he has brought to my life. I have witnessed first-hand the eye for detail that Patrick brings to all of his work. His experience creating high-performing teams, recruiting, building successful business models, navigating professional and personal situations is unparalleled. He truly is the full-package of support and coaching.
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.
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.
Barry was wonderful and our staff loved his inspirational message. It was a pleasure having him share his story with us.
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.
We booked Ali for a smaller, more intimate speaking event (under 100 people). We ultimately ended up selecting Ali over other speakers because of her unique voice and her storytelling ability. Ali is real, engaging and she uses humor to tell her story in a way that’s relatable to all. When you hear “cancer survivor” you may initially think that the content will be heavy and may not appeal to a broad audience. However, Ali’s story is more about how a moment in time (i.e. a Stage IV cancer diagnosis) can change your life and career trajectory. At it's core, her story is about pursuing your passions and living life to its fullest. An important message that we all need to be reminded of from time to time. I highly recommend Ali.
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.
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.
As a speaker, certified success coach, and master practitioner of neurolinguistics programming (NLP), I firmly believe that each one of us has the ability within ourselves to achieve our goals. Sometimes, however, we need direction to help us navigate the choices and the challenges that affect our future. My role as your coach is to empower you to identify your goals and values, help you formulate a plan for success, provide motivation and objectivity, and hold you accountable to your vision, so you can continue to reach higher satisfaction in all areas of your life. I will be your guide, a stepping stone to help you change the very behaviors holding you back from reaching your full potential, and Ill be your greatest ally! My motivational talks and live speaking events are sure to make you agree that Brenda Walton inspires!
I am a former college football coach where I coached our athletes to give their best performances on every play. This resulted in our winning two conference championships. My programs make neural science fun and understandable and also includes best practices of elite performers. I teach people how to focus, how to influence what they pay attention to and how to create habits that will instinctively generate the actions necessary to reach their goals. There is a core of personal accountability and I'm known as "The Accountability Guy". I certainly build a case for the importance of taking responsibility and being the source versus going victim and blaming. I customize for every group and when hired I will ask about your goals, your systems and metrics, your KPI's, your daily activities and then your obstacles. I incorporate this into the presentation. This is an entertaining, high energy and fun presentation with immediately useful and relevant content. I can customize to any amount of time. I am the only speaker who presents like I do. No one else has the background that I have. I've worked with Nobel Prize winner Roger Sperry while I was a head football and wrestling coach at Cal Tech in Pasadena, CA. I had the opportunity to refine and simplify these techniques with Steve Mariucci, fellow assistant coach while at Cal State Fullerton. Steve is a former head coach for the San Francisco 49'ers and Detroit Lions and is now a broadcaster. I don't emphasize this unless you want me to. I also coached an Olympic Gold Medal winner in Greco Roman Wrestling, Jeff Blatnick, who won the gold in the 1984 Olympics.
