What People Are Saying About Sam

“As the Curator for a 200 attendee event, TEDxRaleigh 2011, I approached Sam to speak. Sam is the real deal. In a cacophony of motivators, so called experts, and theorists, Sam is authentic, informative, and inspirational. His manner of speaking is straightforward, digestible, and should not be dismissed as over simplified. As a speaker, Sam captures the attention of the audience with accurate data, quick anecdotes, and charming self discovery. The feedback from the audience post event was consistent, Sam was a highlight." - Matt Murray

They inform and they call to action. They're about the big picture, how it relates to both groups and individuals, and what the first step is – the one toward the right kind of change.
