Keith has a very firm but gentle focus on goals and forward movement. He listened well and picked up on issues I wasn’t fully aware of. He helped me quickly to identify my objectives and how to pursue them while supporting me to keep my obstacles at bay. He had a very calm and intuitive approach never rushing me and I always left our session with great confidence and uplift. He encouraged and acknowledged me substantially and made our sessions fun and productive. I benefited greatly from his coaching and would recommend him to others.
John's level and diversity of experience made him a perfect fit for our company. If you're looking for a consultant or speaker with creative insights, energy, intelligence, motivation, humor, and a modern approach to igniting innovation within yourself or others, then John should be at the top of your list.
I have worked with many motivational speakers in my career and I must say Jig is one of the best. He is genuine and has an awesome message that really relates to the audience. If you have a corporate event or just need to get the team fired up, make sure you get him booked. You will not regret it!
Bob Roitblat shared his experience, insights and more than two hours of classroom time with Safe Humane Chicago's Youth Leaders at Lindblom Math and Science Academy in West Englewood in Chicago to help them prepare their presentations about safe, humane neighborhoods for Chicago elementary school students. What was especially impressive was his ability to connect with these high school students and to support and improve their skills for engaging an audience while conveying important information, focusing on the key points so that young children could take lessons learned home. He kept their attention and motivated them to think about using their own interests and abilities to learn and to teach. I would recommend him to anyone who wanted information and motivation for better presentations.
Kva has been working with me since my cancer diagnosis several months ago. I have experienced both live shamanic sessions after treatment as well as long distance Reiki during chemo sessions. I have skipped a couple of sessions and have regretted it. This is because the long distance Reiki has proven to help me tremendously during my treatments when I usually suffer from serious anxiety attacks as well as bouts of nausea. The Reiki keeps me balanced and though the situation is never going to be perfect it makes chemo as tolerable as it can possibly be. The Shamanic sessions are a little different in that we work more directly with my own spiritual and healing goals-regarding healing of the body, mind and spirit. They do have the added benefit of warding off the side effects of chemotherapy. I feel that if I didn't have Kva to help me through such trying times, I would be far worse off. As it is, despite a serious diagnosis and harsh treatment, I am probably healthier and bounce back much faster due to the energetics that Kva offers. I want to also add that she is a very compassionate person with excellent listening skills. Be prepared to feel loved and to be respected.
Derek is one of the best speakers that I have seen in a long time. His personal stories, high energy and engaging activities hold the interest of all in attendance. I would highly recommend Derek as a keynote speaker.
Logan is a very positive, motivating, and uplifting speaker! It was a great experience working with him.
Angel is a fantastic trainer and motivational coach. He was able to motivate me to workout which wasn't always easy. Angel is committed to improving the overall health of his clients. Exercises are designed to give you the flexibility and strength you need for daily activities in your life. I really liked the fact that we never repeated a workout. The best training experience I've ever had was training at Body Impact Chicago and with Angel Santiago as my trainer. I would highly recommend you check it out for yourself if you live anywhere near the North Suburbs of Chicago.
Dr. Matt Frahm is an incredibly engaging speaker. I've been to several of his talks (mostly on topics related to health and wellness) and always come away feeling much more informed, motivated, and with an actionable plan in mind. He's fun to listen to and will leave participants feeling inspired - and also motivated to truly act on what they've learned. Highly recommend!
I love working with Kelsey. She is so encouraging, motivating and positive. Her training and meal plans are straight forward and easy to understand. She is an excellent coach and is always asking how she can better help you - a good trainer will just give you a plan. An excellent trainer will always constantly be helping you, asking you how they can help you, encouraging you. She isn't only a trainer, but she is your friend. ❤ I still have a ways to go, but I've learned so much from Kelsey and I'm eating right, exercising, losing fat mass and building muscles which is my goals that's she's helping me achieve.
Carla is a savvy communications guru who is astute, personable, motivational and authentic. She does more to help reposition and brand a business in three hours than others can in three days. I have benefited immensely from my association with Carla and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an energetic, creative, hard-working writer or speaker, and overall authority on communications, and someone who provides practical tools that really work. In terms of the services she provides my small business, she was able to quickly assess areas of need and develop a plan to increase my customer base by creating clear and consistent messages across all social media platforms. Carla streamlined my business by bringing all the loose ends together, facilitating focus groups, gathering and sorting through the data to create a cohesive brand that is easily understood by my niche.
