Ann did a fantastic job for me leading a vision, mission, and values segment of our company's annual meeting. She also was the keynote speaker at our dinner following the meeting and was effective at connecting with the audience and delivering a great message. I will use Ann again at future meetings

I’ve had the pleasure of participating in Brian Kenney ‘s Team Extreme team building workshops as a member of FCA and also to hear him address students on Career and College Readiness. As a speaker, Brian is engaging, enthusiastic, and creates meaningful connections with his audience. Brian Kenney’s Team Extreme gets my highest recommendation.

Janet gave a presentation on the value of workplace health promotion (wellness). My observation is that she is an excellent speaker with a wealth of knowledge. She has a congenial nature and is very collaborative, putting the needs and preferences of the organization first.

Bill Schultz spoke to our students, grades K-5, at an Elementary Chapel. With an age range like this, it can sometimes be hard for a speaker to engage everyone. Mr. Schultz had the students spell-bound. He was engaging, dynamic, and entertaining while sharing valuable life lessons that the kids could understand. He made his presentation appropriate for his audience – no canned speech that might be fine for adults, but hard for kids. The time and effort put into preparation paid off with a presentation that impacted our students and we are grateful for his consideration. We are happy to recommend Mr. Bill Schultz to anyone looking for an inspiring and engaging speaker. Barbara Wiers, Director of Elementary and School Relations Abundant Life Christian School

John's conversational style of public speaking mirrors the conversations you can have with him one-on-one. His ability to cut through the typical corporate buzz-speak and communicate directly with his audience is refreshing. Instead of leaving John's talks confused (or with a bullet list you could have pulled from Google), you'll leave knowing that John invested himself in understanding your company or organization well enough to share something of value.

    I have successfully used Susan several times as a speaker, trainer and workshop leader for company seminars and events. Her enthusiasm for her subject is contageous and I find myself reading her material again and again for weeks after the engagement was over. Susan is motivating, inspiring and I highly recommend her for your business conferences and transformational keynotes!

    Lesley was a wonderful, motivational keynote speaker for our ELEVATE Leadership conference. Her specialty is being your best, customer service and being in control of your own destiny. We thoroughly enjoyed our time. We hired her for one hour as our Keynote speaker and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.


    Eyes to See and Ears to Hear Ministries is a unique Catholic ministry that offers a variety of options for meeting your parish or organization's spiritual needs. Our speakers and entertainers are on fire for Holy Mother Church and her teachings, and enjoy the challenge of finding new ways to communicate the gospel message in creative, fun, and engaging ways. We offer Catholic speakers, Catholic storytelling for children and families, youth ministry event planning and direction, and publish a variety of parish catechetical aids and materials.


    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
