Client Feedback and List

Here is a some feedback that TA has received from recent clients:

Simulation Summit 2016 Organization Committee, St. John’s, NL

“I just want to send you a note. Congratulations on an excellent plenary session. I had so many comments on how engaging your talk was. It really covered the theme well and I couldn’t have asked for a better opening talk. I heard many people talking about their own personal ‘Everest’.”

Johnson State College, Johnson, VT

“Just had half my Intro class for a ropes course experience and they were raving about your talk. They really enjoyed it. One or two said they had been to your website. The upper level students in my research class found your talk in Brad’s class as well as the evening presentation really interesting. I also have heard from other faculty and staff who came to your evening presentation and they all really enjoyed it, too. Sounds like it was the most well attended Creative Audience Event so far this year (out of 4 or 5). The college president apologized for not being able to come due to a conflict but she had heard it was good as well. You’re a hit!”

Planned Parenthood-NL Sexual Health Centre, St. John’s, NL

“Thank you so much for your very moving and inspiring talk for the International Day Against Homophobia breakfast.  It certainly caused me to reflect on the my work here at Planned Parenthood and relate it to your metaphors.  Many people have since remarked how your words touched them and motivated them into action.”

Newfoundland and Labrador Credit Union, St. John’s, NL

“I work with Newfoundland and Labrador Credit Union, and as I explained to you today, you moved me to no end. Your drive, passion and spirit is so evident in every word you speak. I have sat through many seminars, speakers and motivational specialists, but you are the one that will stand out the most. You are truly gifted, and have an awesome ability to relay this to others!!!”

Bow Valley College, Calgary, AB

“Your presentation in Calgary was so moving. I laughed, cried and felt completely overwhelmed at times. I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how inspirational it was, and that it gave me the motivation I needed to start my own personal ‘mountain climb’. Thank you TA, I hope I will have the opportunity to hear you speak again.”

University of Northern Colorado, Greeley, CO

“I’m a student at the University of Northern Colorado. I was in attendance at your Lead with Your Life presentation and I just want to say that I found it absolutely fantastic and very inspirational! It was hands down the best presentation I have ever seen. For that I wanted to not only applaud you times a million, but say thank you for traveling all this way to share your incredible story with us, and for inspiring us. On a personal level your words and inspiration struck home with me in wondrous ways, as recently I’ve been completely modifying my views on life and the way I approach things. It was nice to have my views and approaches reinforced by such an inspiring leader as yourself.”

Operating Room Nurses Association of Canada, St. John’s, NL

“I am just giving you feed back from your presentation. It was outstanding. Nothing but rave reviews. The forms number 1 to 4, 4 being the highest and you received a perfect 4. Some people penciled in 10! The opening and closing speakers were the best I have heard in 30yrs attending ORNAC Conferences.”

Junior Achievement

“On behalf of the 130 high school students who attended the Junior Achievement Atlantic Conference I want to thank you for sharing your story and inspiring them to find their Everest. Of all the weekend activities, your presentation spurred the greatest reflection and ranked off the chart in excellence. Delegates have even set up a Facebook page looking to others to share their Everest. Thank you for helping all of us bring our dreams into focus.

I would just like to say you are an amazing speaker. I was one of the delegates at the JAAC 2008 conference. It was such an amazing speech. It was so inspirational. I loved it. I bought a set of the prayer flags. Every time I see them it reminds me off your speech and in turn inspires me to seek my own goals, climb my own Everest.”

Newfoundland and Labrador Organization of Women Entrepreneurs

“I attended the NLOWE conference on Monday and just wanted to send a note of thanks and gratitude. Your story is phenomenal, and what is even better is that you are a gifted story teller who can relay your story with a message. I certainly am a day dreamer with dreams as big as the sky and currently I am working on them, step by step. Meeting more people like yourself ensures me everyday that I too, will accomplish my goals and help others accomplish theirs. Thanks so much for sharing your story! You are fabulous!”
