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.

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.

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!

Bringing together youth from ages 8-21 from across the country, it was important to get them comfortable working together quickly.  Eric's fast-pacing and fun, yet purposely facilitated, team-building session at the 4th Annual Youth Philanthropy Connect conference was just what we needed to end Day One.  Eric did a tremendous job making everyone feel welcome, important, and ready to be involved and work with one another throughout the rest of the conference.  (Our theme was "Weaving a Web of Support" and Eric was able to make the session tie to the theme for an added feel of customization.)

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.

It was great to see all of the smiling faces and positive energy of our staff during the training. The rockstar tools that Eric and Megan shared were very applicable to our program and easy to implement. Eric also asked about our needs and focused in on what would be best for our program. I have already seen several of the ideas being used at our sites. What a great way to pump up our team for the start of the school year!

Leading to Change provided an excellent all day training for my staff! I can not thank you and your staff enough for all your hard work at our conference last week.  The Millennials and Beyond Icebreakers sessions were even more of a hit than I had hoped!  The presentation was the perfect mix of research based information along with a very funny and engaging delivery. I hope to have an opportunity to work with you and your team again in the future.

We invited Eric to be the keynote speaker at our annual chamber banquet. Our program ran long--giving Eric very limited time to speak as the night's grand finale. Yet somehow he kept the audience's attention and delivered a positive message, ending the late night on a happy note. He saved the day by sticking to his time frame and packing his presentation full of great information. Thanks, Eric!
