THANK YOU for such an amazing experience! Our afterschool conference attendees left inspired and energized. I also appreciated all of your pre-conference communication and work to ensure that our training was exactly what we wanted.

Leading to Change truly changed the dynamic of our conference plenary sessions by adding elements of excitement, networking, and fun, all while keeping the theme of our Youth Leadership Conference and Young Leaders Summit at the center of their facilitation. The LTC crew are a dynamic individuals that cater to your needs for them. While they have their own techniques, they were able to adapt to our style and goals for the conference. They also worked well with our participants that consisted of high school and college students and advisors, young professionals and staff members from Habitat for Humanity affiliates. I think our participants were able to understand the concept of our theme “Reconstruct Normal” a bit better due to LTC’s interactive, music filled plenary sessions. I hope to work with Leading To Change for many conferences to come.

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.

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.

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 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.

Working with Leading to Change is like seeing an old friend. The staff greets the event host and participants with a genuine and passionate nature. The energy is unbelievable. Participants learn through fun,  innovative and creative ways. Presentations are given that are thought provoking, reality based and often emotional. The impact of Leading To Change is long lasting. I have seen barriers being broken, tensions released and knowledge embraced. I have seen adults, who work with difficult populations, smile and stand hand in hand with colleagues they have known for years and some they have known for only a day. Leading To Change believes in what they deliver and embraces the chance to make a real difference in many lives and the way we greet challenges. I would,  without a single reservation recommend,  using this talented group of folks at your event. They are amazing.

Great energy! Motivating! Awesomely entertaining! Great speaker . . . have him back! This kind of feedback is music to the ears of any conference organizer. And, that's exactly what I heard about Eric and Leading To Change after their participation in the 2016 NC Philanthropy Conference. I've been familiar with Leading To Change for the last several years and consistently, their presentations are dynamic, engaging, and memorable. At our conference, we pulled on his expertise to lead a session around customer service, an incredibly important topic in the world of fundraising. He certainly delivered! Overwhelmingly those who attended his session walked away with new information and insights to improve their organization. Even being at the last breakout session didn't dampen anyone's enthusiasm -- many remarked that his session was the perfect ending for the day. On top of that, Eric is such a pleasure when collaborating; he makes everything so seamless for you. If you're looking for someone to inspire and motivate your audience, look no further. Eric and Leading To Change are perfect!
