Wade has an uncanny ability to connect with his audience due to his high level of self-awareness, perception, and eloquence. I have never experienced any other speaker prepare for his audience as much as Wade did.

Jim Benton, North Carolina College System


Wade’s insight into his client’s needs, coupled with his strong desire to help people advance in all facets of their lives, shines through when he speaks to an audience. He is an excellent communicator and a strong speaker.

Wade, I really enjoyed your talk at the All for One conference. I found myself nodding in agreement with everything you said. It was a fun event and meeting new people and hearing their stories is always deeply interesting to me.

Allison Gragg, Fiber Innovators International


Wade, you are a very personal and energetic speaker. As I sat in the audience, you made us feel as though we were all longtime friends! Your “Running with Horses” presentation was fun and interactive and left a long lasting impression upon all of us. I heard audience members discussing how they were going to implement the tips and techniques they received from your informative session as they left the banquet hall.  We look forward to having you as a continued resource for our events.

Anthony Phillips, Westinghouse


Thank you so much for speaking to our group! I had a feeling from meeting you and talking with you, that the presentation would be excellent, but it was even better than expected! You have a real gift for connecting with an audience and getting your message across. I’ve had employees comment to me before about various programs I’ve brought to the company, but this time must have been a record for the number of folks who told me how valuable your talk was and how they might utilize the points you made about innovation the next time they were called upon to make a presentation.

Lisa Zehr, Cornell University


Sincerity speaks louder than words and people respond when they see that you are genuine.  Wade is one of the few who understands this from a business point of view.  You are offering people a chance to be who they are rather than being a “product” of what others think they should be.

Robert Wagner, Georgia Pacific


Wade continually reminded attendees that they were at the conference for a reason: their leaders saw value in them, and they should recognize that value. He conveyed the importance of getting rid of unproductive habits that do not support personal needs and goals as well as identifying what needed to be learned to move forward. Wade even scheduled a post-conference check-in call to follow up with attendees on how they’d used some of the skills discussed during the conference….PRICELESS!
