Jeff came and spoke to my group. Wow - what a dynamic, free-flowing and useful presentation. What i love about Jeff's style is that he motivates, inspires and teaches all at the same time. We've had speakers in the past who had some of these skills, but Jeff is the whole package. He shares excellent, practical content and is inspiring at the same time. Highly recommended.

Geronda Wollack

Society for Human Resource Management & student of University of New Haven Graduate School

Taking 5 John Hopkins classes at the same time, with 3 hours of commute time each day to get to his Government job, while doing seminars on the side and he wrote a book, found a publisher and published his first book, too? Are you kidding? That's unheard of; no one does that. Jeff Davis is a legend in his own right. I only say that because it's true.

Bassam Alattar

Risk Analyst at T. Rowe Price

When I first heard Jeff speak, his story uplifted and inspired me. He has a way of pulling you into his speeches and holding your attention throughout. Jeff didn't know this at the time of his speech, but due to the death of a member of my family, I was the dumps. His speech helped me to not give up and keep pushing forward. We are now good friends.

Michael Platania

Based on Jeff's stage presence and ability to engage listeners, I'm convinced he can connect with any audience on the planet. He's one of the best speakers I've ever see.

Jeff's strenght is painting a picture that people can relate to, understand, process and then use fir their benefit. He's just as good, if not better, than any speaker I've ever seen and I've seen in person many of the world champions of public speaking. From the bottom of my heart, I think Jeff is the best.

Judith Anne Dellosso
