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

Gary Hasson, V.P. of International - Agel

Our hope and expectations were far exceeded. Burgess gave his whole heart and soul to our group. He was so real, personable and sincere. He wove perfectly his own personal experiences with messages of empowerment and courage. Our executive team and our field leadership were all so positively impacted by Burgess' presentation that we have already booked him again for our next large event.

Mike Brosnan, CEO - BellaVita Group LLC

By the time Burgess had finished his beautiful, compelling speech, "The 13th Season," every heart in the room was filled and motivated. And not a single eye was dry. Burgess has the innate—and awe-inspiring—ability to not only connect with an audience, but to reach them in a way that is thought-provoking, personal and, ultimately, unforgettable."
