I liked Brian Nugent’s ESTEEM Team presentation a lot! It was really funny. And he brought visuals. You could see how he was trying to explain things. A lot of what he was telling me with SMART goals and everything … its things that I can use in everyday life like with planning tools. So I liked that; I can use it and carry it out after the presentation.

ESTEEM Team's Mark Hatfield visited our school on Thursday for a motivational, hilarious, goal setting assembly this week.
He is a former NFL/CFL/CIS football player who now does public speaking, on TV shows, and is a firefighter. I've never seen such a great show nor such a well-organized group. We've never had a better assembly in all of the 10 years I've been at Canterbury! Such a well-organized group you have that benefits so many students in different ways! The cost is only $600 as it is subsidized by Motivate Canada. There other speakers you can choose from. There are also small group options from ESTEEM Team. I would definitely recommend having him or another member of their team at your school.

WOW! Benoit (St-Amand)'s ESTEEM Team presentation was absolutely incredible. It was probably one of the most inspiring "when life gives you lemons" presentations I have ever attended. Our students and teachers had nothing but positive things to share about the whole experience. THANK YOU for making initiatives like this possible. Again, a huge thanks to you and your team for this whole experience...simply lovely!!!

Dear Motivate Canada & ESTEEM Team:Thank you for the a fabulous presentation and providing the subsidy funding opportunity without which schools like ours have to decline based on cost. The booking was easy and Darin Kyle put on a SUPER SHOW with a SUPER MESSAGE.
