Garrison recently spoke at our MassMutual Academy for almost 800 Financial Advisors in Phoenix, AZ. Garrison’s energy, passion, endurance and connection with the audience was beyond impressive. His message was relatable and his humor kept the audience’s attention for the entire presentation. He was the perfect choice for a closing speaker after a 4 day learning conference for our group. From the moment he came into the room to the moment he left the conference his focus was on our attendees and his professionalism did not go unnoticed. Our attendees left his presentation energized and excited about his message and his performance. We have already received a tremendous amount of positive feedback on Garrison’s presentation and many General Agents want to hire him for agency presentations. Garrison hit it out of the park!

I just wanted to take a quick moment to share how wonderful it was to meet and work with Garrison. He was a true professional from the beginning to the end. If I were asked to pick a handful of words to describe him I immediately think of: flexible, accommodating, friendly, professional, quick-witted, intuitive, and hilarious. He was extremely thorough in asking questions and very in tune to the topic of the meeting. He tailored a message that was spot on in the material, highly engaging and humorous in his delivery. He held the audience’s attention captive the entire time he was on stage! After working with Garrison I would strongly recommend him for any future event, either inside or outside of our company.

This is by far the best keynote we have ever had. This is a tough group of seasoned professionals, so our choice of motivational speaker was critical to ensure our objectives were met. You did an excellent job of addressing the specifics we identified and accomplished that with humor and grace. Getting everyone on the same page, being really funny and focusing on a repeatable process for communication was the key. Most importantly, feedback from our staff was highly positive and we have had a 23% increase in sales.



I wanted to take this opportunity to say how pleased I was with your presentation during our recent National Sales Meeting. The subject matter and topics discussed were very applicable and relevant to our business environment. Your presentation and “delivery” of the material was perfect for our meeting. You were able to combine statistical information, industry standards, as well as provide helpful selling tools that will enable our staff to take our sales to the next level. Our sales team walked away with a very positive attitude, and were reminded of the traits that transform an ordinary sales person into a truly great sales person. I cannot tell you how many people came up to me just to tell me how much they enjoyed your presentation. I can tell you from experience, compliments from our sales force are very few and far between. Garrison, thank you for making our sales meeting a true success!!
