Excellent speaker. She had the audience rolling in laughter from some of her humorous stories.
Devin is a clear & straight forward speaker. You can tell he genuinely cares about his audience and speaks from life experience. I am inspired to think & dream bigger!
Agnes is outstanding! As one of our Special Guest Speakers, she is very knowledgeable, conveys her message in a way that is easy for everyone to understand, and she helps us stay on top of the many changes Social Media makes.
I had the opportunity to work with Les when he was brought on by OB Sports to provide company-wide sales training & corporate coaching. His training methods were not only effective but also engaging. Our sales team was able to retain and apply many of Les strategies into their daily activities resulting in positive growth year over year. He is not only effective as a one-on-one coach but also as a dynamic public speaker. I would recommend him to any company (small or large) looking to motive their sales team.
Melody has helped me in a number of ways from her Udemy course for my child of four who was bed wetting to personal hypnotherapy sessions for pregnancy symptoms, relationship issues and gaining confidence for public performance. Her recordings are professional and soothing, her personality very compassionate and she set me at ease with her understanding of human nature. Even very personal issues have been resolved with confidence for me. Over the last year my life has really changed.
We used Tarin for our wedding and could not have been happier. My husband has a fear of public speaking and was feeling extremely nervous about standing up in front of everyone. Tarin made the experience so wonderful. He had a very calming effect and made us both feel at ease. He new exactly what to do and took control of everything from the rehearsal to the ceremony. He was professional and caring through out the entire process. Everything was so smooth. I was very happy we chose him and couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Hey has been consulting with my nonprofit for the past three years, helping design campaigns, increasing our public profile, and professionalizing our social media. I will definitely continue to work with Hey and frequently refer them to colleagues. Intelligent, thoughtful, professional, and up to date. Hey makes sure our PR is always in alignment with our mission and values!
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.
Barry and I have a Barry and I had a very similar accident experience and he’s been coaching how I need to talk about my experience in public. Nice guy and very powerful speech technic he’s been providing to me. Highly recommended.
An outstanding show! Benjamin hasn't lost any of his edge in the last two centuries. He brings history into the modern era with relevant examples and hilarious stories. A must-see!
Leslie Korn is a terrific teacher. She is able to communicate her vast knowledge to her audience in a fun and dynamic way. Her positive energy and humor in combination with her ability to articulate complex ideas make her a wonderful speaker. We were lucky to have someone of Leslie’s caliber at our conference.
Melannie was wonderful. She was very generous with her time, delivered a powerful and relatable message to the girls my organization serves and was (and always is) a lot of fun. I deeply value her!
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.
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 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.
Sandy is an outstanding professional speaker who masterfully communicates her skills to others. Sandy has helped me become a more confident speaker, As a nutrition educator, it is important that I am able to effectively communicate my message to my audience. With Sandy's coaching, I'm now much more able to focus my message on what I know is important to my audience. And one more thing - working with Sandy is fun! Thanks Sandy!
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.
