Nick was OUTSTANDING! Thank you so much for your recommendation. He was engaging, great personal story, and he continually tied his message into our PRIDE acronym for our students (which we based our whole school day on). We would definitely recommend Nick as a motivational speaker!

I wanted to take a moment to express in a few words the positive impact that your program involving Benoit St-Amand had on my children during his visit at their school.
As you know, I have been lucky enough to work for the Montreal Canadiens and therefore my children have been around professional athletes for quite some time. Somehow, I had never quite seen the impact from our players that Benoit had on my kids. My 8-year-old daughter is still talking about the presentation several weeks later and holds his Esteem Team card preciously, unlike the other ones she receives regularly including those of the NHL players. She also identified with several elements of his speach that clearly demonstrates its significance to her. Benoit also inspired my 10-year-old son who related to his story on different levels and in particular to a segment on school bullying.
I just wanted to congratulate you for the extraordinary work that you do, in addition to the impact you have on our kids, you set forth the values of incredible people who unfortunately do not have the recognition or popularity they deserve just as much as our star athletes in professional sports.
