"Dr. Jones was one of our favorite speakers at the 2018 National Credit Union Call Center Conference. The attendees were fully engaged, laughed at his jokes and didn't stop talking about his presentation. He truly has a gift to motivate and capture the audience's' full attention. I highly recommend Dr. Jones to any group wanting to be encourage and inspired to be a better person.

As a meeting planner he is a joy to work with. He is a true professional, studies his audience, prepares his presentation to their position and an incredibly nice person. I will hire him again."
