    "Loren Michaels Harris excited my school audience of teachers, therapists, social workers and paraprofessionals! He is a vibrant speaker that uses examples we can all relate as well as to clearly articulating his point. He mixes music, video with real world experiences that can certainly perk up an audience. His message was relevant to our needs and he does his homework. Not only was he a "Motivational" speaker, but we all can walk away with something that can be applied in our everyday lives in and out of the workplace. My staff is requesting that he return mid-year for the "boost" they need to motivate and inspire them to assist in completing a successful school year! Double thumbs up for Loren! Outstanding!"
