Testimonials

“Jody spoke to our Youth council on Community Engagement and leadership skills. His talk was engaging, educational and fun. Kids were up, moving about, and learning at the same time. He got raving reviews from every single youth that was involved that day. As an adult watching, I had a blast watching him interact with our kids and I learned a couple of things myself. I would highly recommend him speaking to your group. From adults to kids I would recommend him.” -Michelle Hess – Vice Mayor, City of Buckeye, AZ

“I am very happy that Jody spoke at my camp. He delivered an unbelievably powerful message about the power of choices. How those things will affect them moving forward in their lives. I think it is something that touched them and they will take it forward for the rest of their lives. I am very thankful.” – Mark West – Phoenix Suns, Vice President of Player Programs
