Leading To Change provided a conference session and luncheon keynote for our professional association on the topic of Generational Leadership. The presentations were very interactive and had participants laughing, dancing and having a great time. A number of conference attendees approached me afterward to comment on how much they had enjoyed the keynote, that Eric was one of the best presenters they had ever heard.

Thank-you Leading To Change!. We received and experienced exactly what we hoped for and then some. The fact filled fast-paced dialog identified perfectly with the instructor’s everyday duties and the problems they face. Who could dare shut an eye with the way your team kept the audience engaged? Well done!

Virtual engagement is challenging, and it's easy for a speaker to fall flat over the airwaves, but the Leading to Change team ensured that there was energy at each site. Our keynote, Eric, and the facilitators in Asheville and Greenville kept our audience excited and helped us navigate when there were technical challenges with the broadcast. Working with the LtC team was a breeze. The team was thoughtful, well organized, and willing to fill in where needed—even on a moments notice. We couldn't have asked for better service. The LtC team provided ample resources and performed with extreme flexibility—the kind that is necessary to keep a multi-site audience interested. I think the most important part of LtC's approach is modeling. The group demonstrated best practices for engaging youth through their research but most importantly through their own behavior during the meeting. They were energetic, dynamic, and interactive. LTC showed the audience how it's done--and I'm sure they won't forget.

I continue to hear feedback, even weeks after our training, about how energized and inspired our BASE team felt after our amazing day on September 25th. Thank you for sharing the amazing tools and resources with us as well.
It was a pleasure meeting you, your story made a huge impression with us, I believe you have lead many of us to change our thinking about our purpose and opportunity to make a difference with every child, particularly those who need us most (and show us they need us in many unique ways!)!!!
Take care, and many thanks,

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
We really appreciate all the effort you and Fred put into making this a great day for us. I have heard outstanding feedback from the agents and we WILL be getting you guys back based on their feelings. I just knew you would be a hit! I think the one comment that stood out to me most was when you were packing up and one of our most senior staff said thatthis was the best training she had in “DECADES”!!!!!

Eric and DJ truly energized the entire staff. It was motivating, high energy, fun, and a great way to bring a staff of new teachers and administrators together in order to start off a fabulous school year. The "Raise Your Game" training allowed us to team build and get to know each other. The session drove home the fact that we impact the lives of our students everyday and the need for us to be at the top of our game. My staff is still raving about the session and looking forward to round 2 with Eric and DJ. Thanks Leading to Change for bringing a fractured staff together that is stronger than ever! Since that session our school atmosphere has be phenomenally positive and high spirited.

Leading To Change opened our day of professional development for Head Coaches and Leadership Team and it was terrific, energetic, engaging and kept our attention. The goal was to begin dialogue about ways in which we can communicate with different generations - Baby Boomer to Millenial - and we achieved that goal. In fact, our staff has asked if they can go deeper.

Once again your presentation on the Generational Crossroads was uplifting, entertaining and enlightening. What a refreshing topic, and one that should be shared with all! You always present in a manner that is both humorous and entertaining, while still getting your message across to the entire audience (youths and adults). That’s a hard combination to achieve - especially at 8:30 in the morning, but you did it with style and grace. You would be a huge asset to ANY group who is looking for an amazing, one-of-a-kind speaker.
