The main message I took away from Adam Kreek’s presentation was to make my goals Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Reaslistic and Timely (S.M.A.R.T.) Thanks Esteem Team!
I want to thank the Esteem Team once again for coming in and speaking with our group. Your story was certainly one of personal perserverence as well as inspiring, and touching. Thanks for bringing your enthusiasm, sense of humor and motivational messages. I think the presentation you guys gave not only provided us with a great snap shot of the wonderful work you are able to provide to youth, but it also provided a bit of a team building opportunity for us as well! Thanks so much for the wonderful work you do.
It was great having you (Mark Hatfield) present to our junior and intermediate students at  Alta Vista as part of the Esteem Team. The SMART Goal message you brought was relevant and meaningful and delivered in an engaging way. You could tell that you had the interest of students... so many stayed afterwards during their break to get your autograph.   I would be pleased to recommend your presentations to others!

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!

Hi Lilo. I wanted to say that you are a huge inspiration to me; it's amazing what you have done, and you have showed me that your dreams can be reached. You actually talked to my school, it was Maple Creek you talked at so just wanted to say thanks.

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.


Dave (Durepos) was phenomenal!  He had amazing stories and captured everyone’s attention.  Dave was very effective and helped the students see that they can do anything they set their mind to.  Thank you ESTEEM TEAM!
Thank you so much for recommending Brian for yesterday’s event. He was fantastic and full of energy. The kids thought he was a rock-star – it was great!
