Testimonials (4)

Mary H. Doyle, RN, BSNJ MA, Program Manager | Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing

"I want to thank you for contributing your time and talent to present such a wonderful program on "Response Ability: Mental Toughness". It is greatly appreciated by our staff and certainly by our clients who attended your class. The responses from the participant evaluations indicated that what you presented was not only enjoyable, but practical as well."

Sue Demarco, Director of Organizational Development | Exeter Hospital

"I know it was a great presentation when almost a month later, I am still thinking and acting differently .based upon the material which I learned. Though I had been using daily rituals, I am an even a more fervent supporter as I appreciate how these personal rituals increase my energy as well as providing an uplifted focus on 'what I get to do' and not 'what I have to do'!" "Thanks so much John for sharing easy to use, down to earth, concrete approaches which help increase our daily enjoyment of the work we do."

Jeff Andrulonis, CEO Colonial Media & Entertainment | Colonial Club

"John Brubaker is an entertaining and engaging personality. He has a unique knack for making the audience think; all the while keeping them on the edge of their seats and filled with laughter. His background in teaching, coaching, media and management make John a great resource to help any organization take their team's performance to the next level.“

Dan Tudor, President | Tudor Collegiate Strategies - National Collegiate Recruiters Conference

"As the organizer of a large national conference every year we are always looking to bring in someone who can bring good content and energy to our conference. What we found with John was not only does he have the expertise but also the energy and originality that you really look for in a speaker. He is very original in his approach, we got great feedback from our attendees on everything he talked about and what he did for them. If you are looking for somebody who motivates and also teaches and gives real skills that you can use out in the business world then book John. I would bring him back in a second and plan on having him for future conferences."
