"Your speech was one of the absolute best I've heard at any of the Chamber of Commerce events. It was smart, gave specific points on approaching goals, was quite entertaining and exceeded my expectations. The lessons I learned have more than covered the cost of the workshop and my time. Personally, I also enjoyed the spiritual basis of your work and how you use those lessons to guide our learning. I hope I'll be able to attend more workshops from Sparks Development in the future."

"Your presentation at our January Membership Meeting was an inspiration to many of our members and a wonderful way to kick off the new year. I would recommend you as a motivational speaker and I am pleased our organization was able to spend a short afternoon with you."

"Wow! What an exciting firewalking experience. The response is pouring in from our affiliates on the tremendous impact you made in their personal and professional lives. The sincerity in which you delivered your program, the heartfelt storytelling that touched everyone in the room, your meaningful messages that caused all to evaluate the way their lives are led, and the fiery finale to your seminar, were all contributing factors to one of the most successful speaker workshops we've ever experienced as a Region. Thank you, Bill you not only delivered, but exceed the expectations of all those who experienced your program."
     -Chris Brock, Director
     -RE/MAX Mid-States and Dixie Regions

"What a great program you provided for our Annual Business Awards Breakfast. What a surprise it was for the guest's who thought they were coming to the "same ol' breakfast"! We received many positive comments on the presentation. We even received comments from viewers of the cable network who saw the rerun of the Breakfast. Thank you for a job well-done and your invitation to over 450 business members to overcome their fears to triumph in business and their personal lives. We should have a great year because of your message. Thank you!"
     -Paula McCloskey, CEO
     -Alameda Chamber of Commerce

"Thank you so much for your contributions during our Large Market Corporate services Leadership forum. You came before a group of hi-caliber, challenging and intellectual Directors and VP's and brought them to their feet...literally! Your crowd was thoroughly engaged and participating. It was just the energy boost they needed as they were in the initial preparation for arrow-breaking and Firewalking. Thank you for taking the time and care to attend the special needs of this group. It made all the difference in making it an extremely meaningful experience."
     -Debra Dauplaise
     -American Express

"The success of this program and feedback from the participants has been outstanding. I have been deeply touched as many have shared with me their individual experiences and the steps that they have taken since the seminar to transform their lives by breaking through their personal barrier and choosing to walk their unique paths in freedom, power, and joy."
     -Maryellen Reiley

"This was truly an experience of a life time for the participants...I would highly recommend you and your team to any organization that is looking for a firewalking [team building] experience."
