Recent Testimonials:

“What can we say about Mr. Ross? An author, TV personality, consummate professional, and the utmost motivator! Over and over again, Darryl shows us how to remove the dirt and grime from our lenses, adjust our mindsets, and push ourselves to be better in the workplace and at home. Emotional health is as important a spoke in the overall employee health as any other. And his presentation at the Health Expo on fulfillment was the best one ever. Do you really know how to achieve fulfillment? Do you know the reasons we succeed or fail? These are just some of the things he touched on in Friday's Expo. If you've ever had the chance to hear him speak you know he offers pinpoint information on ways to stay focused, set goals, and improve our lives.”

Darryl Ross was amazing. He was engaging, energetic, and entertaining. He really was intuitive with the Tampa Bay Way. He did his research of our company to ensure he presented what we were asking for. Before the event, he contacted us several times and returned any communication we sent in a timely manner. Our team loved him and would recommend him for any event you may have.

Darryl was well received by our attendees. We received all positive feedback. What struck me particularly was the time he took to "personalize" his session to specifically relate to our organization and attendees, rather than just presenting a 'cookie cutter". He was a joy to work with; professional, warm and extremely accommodating. I look forward to working with Darryl again in the near future!

I highly recommend Darryl Ross. His preparation for the event was unparalleled and it showed in his speech. Darryl is a mix of motivational speaking and business training, wrapped in a dynamic personality. Everyone was engaged throughout his time and have since inquired if we can have him present at future events. I am highly satisfied with his performance. Thank you.
