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!

Thank you so very much for facilitating our 2-day Youth Leadership Summit in Lexington, SC. Your energy and passion for being an agent of change inspired not only the youth but the adults as well! It was wonderful to work with you and we very much appreciate your willingness to tailor this meet the needs of the youth in our communities. The quality of services received is unmatched and confirms our decision to bring you in each year to empower the next group of young people! Your humor, interactive games, challenging questions and upbeat music made each day such a success. The energy you displayed was contagious and radiated through the entire room! The impact you made was powerful and touched the lives of each individual in the room. We know that the youth leaders will take away an array of knowledge and implement it in their schools and their communities. Thank you for everything!!

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!

Eric led our Winston-Salem Foundation in the True Leadership training as well as some fun and invigorating team building exercises. Our staff really found the training fun and exciting while learning a lot about themselves and peer leadership styles. Eric provided two calls to make sure we were clear on objectives and plans for the day. Eric’s energy is infectious and we had a great day of learning!

Leading to Change provided opening, recharge, and closing sessions for freshman student-athletes in our Preparing to SOAR program. Leading to Change was not only helpful in providing much needed energy for these sessions, they also took the time listen to where the student-athletes were mentally before designing the session. Our student-athletes were immediately excited when Eric and his team walked through the door. The sessions with Eric help challenge the group, but also brought them closer together.

Leading To Change provided a wonderful and thoughtful group of exercises for an annual program called our Community Teen Leadership Exchange where we bring a group of Charlotte & Israeli teens together. Their quality of services was excellent, and the trainers were on time and really energetic allowing the teens to learn and have fun at the same time!

We could not have been more pleased with the outcome of Convocation and your participation. Everyone had a marvelous and time and you've got us all excited about starting school on Monday. I love the pictures and can't wait to share them. And I have heard nothing but high praise for the Ass't Principal session. They had a great time and are going to take back some great information for their schools.
