client testimonial

what our client say about our coaching ?

"You could hear a pin drop as Stephen spoke. He told his compelling story while incorporating humor, emotion and seriousness throughout. He made sure to mention specific names of people in the audience and incorporated them into his presentation. He was a phenomenal speaker with a truly inspirational story and we could not have asked for more."

Jonathan's Place

“Steve Pemberton was one of the most incredible speakers I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. Not that I ever doubted you – you set the expectation pretty high. But he blew any expectation I had away entirely! His message of a ​diverse world fit in perfectly with our programming, and his personal story had the audience in tears and standing ovation at the end. I'm glad we had the books ordered, because everyone wanted to meet him and thank him afterward. He is the nicest guy too. I got to spend a few minutes with him before the event and I thoroughly enjoyed talking with him. All in all, he was the best keynote speaker we could have gotten, and I was sincerely praised for it. Thank you for your incredible recommendation. I really appreciate your expertise and insight for our event needs.”

Marketing Brand Manager, Cyracom

"Steve was a fabulous addition to our event. He spoke from the heart and did an extraordinary job of connecting his story to our mission and work. He could not have been more gracious to our many guests who wanted to talk and have their book signed, as well as to our students who he so smoothly worked into his remarks. He implored our audience to take action and to do something to lift our youth. We could not ask for more."
