- Burgess spoke to my operations team at a critical time, following some really bad news that had drained the team’s motivation pretty deeply. Following his talk, almost every person in attendance stuck around and stood in line to get his autograph, picture, and thank him for his message. His stories were entertaining, inspirational, and gave my team a desperately needed boost. He even managed to give some one-on-one time with many of my team members, and allowed some big NFL fans present to take a picture wearing his Super Bowl ring – a truly once-in-a-lifetime and awesome experience.

- Our company benefited greatly by having Mr. Owens speak at a recent event. He shared his personal story of struggles and hardships, successes and triumphs and how he dealt with each situation. These life lessons and how he related them to business and personal lives was something all those in attendance were fortunate to take home with them. If his schedule permits, we will have Mr. Owens back to speak at our next event with participants from around the globe
