"Allen spoke to my students about perseverance and success. First, he is very personable and down to earth so the students were immediately able to relate to him and thus were more receptive to the message. Second, I was impressed with his preparation for the speech. He came with an outline, notes, and examples.
While his delivery is conversational you'd swear it was all off the cuff, Allen has actually very carefully and thoughtfully prepared his talking points. He injected both seriousness where necessary to drive home a point and humor to bring levity and grab the audience's attention. Finally, he left my class with several recommendations and useful resources. Not only did they leave his talk inspired, but they left with practical ways to connect the information to their everyday lives.
In a move I felt was above and beyond, Allen even gave his contact info to a student who spoke to him afterwards and expressed the need for additional support. On the final assessment of the course, many students listed this speech as one of the most impactful learning experiences of the semester. I highly recommend Allen as a speaker. He was great to work with and consulted with me along the way to ensure that our goals for the speech were aligned."

"It's clear when you hear his voice that Allen has a talent and a passion for speaking. Not only that, but he has a naturally supportive and encouraging aura that makes you feel confident you can do anything. He's the equivalent of the angel on your right shoulder, but way more hype."
- Jacqueline Ollison
