"I’ve had the opportunity throughout my career to work with numerous motivational speakers.  Whether it’s hiring someone to speak to my team or attending numerous executive development sessions. Mr. Johnson is a premier motivational speaker. During a time of organizational transformation at my company I brought him in to speak with my team about changing business dynamics and how to redefine yourself as a professional. I needed assistance with boosting the morale of some, acclimating new members into the team, and overall exciting them about the value of the changes and the future of the company.

He effectively researched the company and was very adroit at speaking to our industry. He was able to position all of his vast experience in the sports industry and as a loyal family man into relevant examples of change that really resonated with my team. Mr. Johnson is masterful at weaving in his overall journey of success into relevant and compelling examples that apply to any situation. The team was left motivated and challenged by his speech. We had actionable approaches that assisted in addressing our upcoming organizational changes and revised job roles."
