“Many speech coaches have only told me what to do. Dr. Harvey is the first coach who told me WHY to implement certain techniques. Since working with Dr. Harvey my speaking skills have exploded! He has helped me turn on my creative genius and write in a way that not only keeps my audience’s attention, but holds it like a vice. Thanks to his help I have many people asking for my help on their speeches. Thank you Dr. Harvey!” – Brian Swan
“Dr. Randy Harvey changed the course of my life when he taught me three questions: Who are you? ; What are you about?; Where did you learn that? I got chills all over my body. These three questions changed my life in that single moment. It changed how I think and what I do.” – Kyle T. Garrett
“You couldn’t hope to work with a human being of greater quality, and you will understand precisely why I say this once you’ve had the pleasure of working with him.” – Douglas Kruger
“Randy is exceptionally strong at helping people develop speech ideas from the written word to the presentation style. In an easily understood, step-by-step guide, he walked people through identifying key themes, focusing on ideas and speech development and wrapping up the presentation with powerful openings and closings. Our conference attendees were so motivated by Randy that we booked him again for another conference!” – Jean Shipos
Randy inspires me to continually improve as a storyteller and to encourage others to do the same.” Robert Killan
“My perspective of storytelling and closing statements have both been significantly changed through Randy’s involvement with my District, Region, and World Championship speeches this year. His insights on writing and delivery options routinely altered my thinking regarding material I had been comfortable with for years, helping me make it more impactful than ever. Most importantly, his encouragement was crucial as I made my run to Top 3 in the world at the Toastmasters International conference.” – Rich Hopkins
”I would not have been able to give such a heartfelt and impactful speech without the full life-cycle coaching from Randy. He will forever hold a special place in my heart!!” – Carrie Craggs
