Your team was a hit with the teachers. They loved the strategies they were given and the high energy of the presentation. Pat and Quincy did a fantastic job!

Leading to Change challenged our staff with a fast-paced, energetic, beginning of the year celebration focusing on working with staff members from the different generations. Participants are now cognizant of the fact that are students, not only from a different age group, but the teacher down the hall may well have a different perspective on things because they too are from a different generation. We will definitely use this group again for future trainings.

Another great job by Leading To Change! This was the second time we hired Eric to conduct a workshop on social media strategies and employer engagement. Attendees were exposed to an arsenal of digital tools that can be used to connect with young people and potentially lead to employment, internship and job shadowing opportunities. Eric’s knowledge on social media and employer engagement was very insightful, energetic and fun. He not only presented but allowed attendees to brain storm in groups on how social media can help them do their jobs better. We’re looking forward to bringing him back for another great workshop.

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,

Energetic, educational, and practical session! Thank you. Everyone in the country should hear Eric Rowles! He was AWESOME and is truly leading to change! He was able to touch our spirit and truly inspire us. He held our attention from start to finish and helped us better understand the generational gaps and crossroads, and had lots of fun doing it. He helped us better understand how to interact with students from various academic backgrounds and unique learning styles. Great Job! We look forward to him returning to the district!

We can’t thank Leading to Change enough for helping to make our first annual conference a HUGE success! Working with Eric and his team was a great experience. They really took the stress out of planning by taking the time to learn about our organization, listen to our needs, and wanting to really understand how he could best support our anticipated goals of the day. Leading To Change delivered on all counts and did far more than just provide a keynote presentation & breakout sessions. They were engaging, inspiring, and left a lasting impact on everyone in the room.

Leading to Change conducted a fast-paced, interactive luncheon plenary and a personalized breakout that made our staff move like I’ve never seen before! The content spoke directly to what our staff does and the challenges they work to overcome every day. Not only did you make everyone feel comfortable, but you did so while asking questions to find out as much as you could about your audience/our staff. And it showed when it was time to present! In my experience with presenters, that is a very unique skill set. You moved my table to tears (seriously)…in a good way!

Leading To Change took on a tough task and made it look easy! Discussing race and class issues can be daunting, but our participants felt SAFE and engaged enough to answer some very difficult questions and move the conversation forward. Events like this don’t happen often in our community, so it was refreshing to introduce these ideas to our partners.

You all provided a great experience for all our teens. The summit was well organized and planned out perfectly. After the team had left we processed the day with our kids and they loved the activities! What was really special is these are two groups of kids that don’t understand each other and the summit brought them closer together. By the end of the day the kids all were talking to each other and having a great time.
