Dave Breslin
Senior Vice President

"Edward brings an informative, funny, high-energy presentation that really connected with our association members and really kicked-off our event in an amazing way. The audience was engaged from start to finish. Usually, when I see keynote speakers, people begin checking their phones halfway through the presentation - not during Edward’s talk! Everyone was focused front and center! His interactive handouts were not only great to keep everyone engaged and focused, but they served as a great takeaway for some simple action items to implement immediately!”"

Joe Wangendo
Fund raising Association of Kenya

"“To put it mildly, the half day we spent with Edward was as energizing and motivating as anything I have ever experienced in my career. His messaging was consistent with our objectives because he took the time to learn about our business. The impact on our management team was tremendous and our teams have responded with a strong push to not only be better than our competition but to be better and different.”"

Nganga Mbugua
Maninging Editor Business Daily

"“Clearly, you have elevated the craft of being a ‘professional catalyst’ to an art form. Your passion and enthusiasm were engaging but more importantly, you backed up your presentation with valuable and meaningful content. As a result, many of our clients are employing your ‘unlocking your potential!’ ethos in their ways of life and decision making to challenge the way we have always done business. "

Kentice Tikolo
Managing Director

"Edward, you knocked it out of the park! It is truly impressive how you are able to use relatable real-world stories to distill complex concepts into tangible, manageable components – and then engage our executive students of over 100+ companies in a thought-provoking discussion which generates actionable ideas that they can implement immediately."

George Njenga
Dean Strathmore university Business School

"We chose Edward for our upcoming Leaders seminar and his "Unlocking your potential" session hit a homerun! His motivation and high-energy style was infectious. His customized handouts and style did a wonderful job of engaging our entire team. He encouraged participants to step outside of their comfort zones, to examine every aspect of their lives and to set the process in motion for improvement; not just words on a paper, but true commitment to impact positivity in every aspect of life. Our team is still highly energized and continuously talking about this session and Edward's impact on our organization. SIMPLY OUTSTANDING!!!"
