Wow! What can I say? Terry Hawkins is absolutely fantastic! This woman is the most amazing and inspiring speaker I have ever listened to. Her presentation, delivery and energy are second to none. She made us roar with laughter, question our beliefs, challenge ourselves, shed a few tears but most importantly stretch our horizons and believe in ourselves. Her message is so powerful and yet so simple. Thank you so much for recommending her. Century 21

Thank you again for a GREAT morning. To hear others come back to us saying that they are dragging themselves back out of the pit and thanking us for choosing you as our guest speaker is indeed a great reflection on your ability to connect with a crowd, regardless of their work or social background. One of the owners of a franchise rang me on the following Monday to tell me that you touched something in her to such a degree that you have changed her outlook on life. The positive energy that you infused into the crowd was explosive even to the last farewell of the day. Terry was the best speaker we have had. Everyone said she was fantastic!

Just wanted to again say that I thought you gave an outstanding presentation to the Freedom Conference. I had a number of our people telling me you were the best presenter they had ever seen and that they were keen to implement change in their working and personal lives immediately. No doubt the legacy you have will remain with our people for quite some time.

Freedom Group

We were blown away by Terry! One minute we were rolling in the aisles with laughter - the next we were touched by the sheer life experiences and perception used to convey the message. And what a message! A room full of nodding heads - hundreds of 'a-ha' moments. The feedback was all the same: 'Bring Terry back next year.' If you're looking for more than just a motivational speaker, you've found her. Thank you Terry for helping us turn our conference from fabulous to AMAZING!
