  • I wanted to tell you thank you so much for agreeing to come and speak to our employees. We have heard nothing but great things from those who attended. In fact I would say it was the highlight of the week overall.

  • Lance Allred came to our school and spoke to our students following a crisis on campus. With short notice, Lance was able to rearrange his schedule and help our students through this difficult time. His story of perseverance and standing up against bullying both captivated and helped our students process a vast number of emotions. Lance was charismatic, endearing and his speech deeply heartfelt, inspiring the students and the staff. I strongly recommend him.

  • Lance was engaging, enlightening and motivating.  During the presentation, the students were truly engaged, participatory and inspired to participate and in some cases, moved to tears.  There are lessons from Lance’s presentations that fit in to everyone’s life in some aspect or another.  People are better off after learning from Lance’s message- life’s lessons for everyone!
