Thomas was a true hit! Bringing a very refreshing combination of true-life experiences and stories coupled with his message of inner strength, a positive attitude and a firm foundation in moral values and ethics, he was extremely entertaining and motivating.
LA, Chamber of Commerce
The one thing that impressed me was your willingness to share your real-life experiences, in such a dynamic way that you not only entertained us, but you also taught us valuable lessons. I think that even as adults, we need to be reminded of what true success really entails and how important it is for us to have that encouragement and hope in our lives, and you were able to do that. The lessons you taught were right in line with what Relay for Life really stands for, giving hope and encouragement to others, even when there are many roadblocks and hurdles to overcome.
We would love to see you again!

Convention in Earlville, IL on 03/22/2009
"Thomas was very well received and at the same time amusing. I was told by several of our members that they never met a motivational speaker like Thomas and actually enjoyed listening. I told Thomas that I'd be more than happy to give a referal for him at any time. I usually find a motivational speaker to be a little boring. However with Thomas he was amazing, you just wanted to hear more.If I can be of any assitance for Gig Masters or Thomas please let me know. Thanks so much for ALL of you help. Please tell Thomas I'm very happy in ALL that he done.
