Text Reviews
  • "Over the past 32 years, we have had hundreds of speakers around the globe. Many considered to be best of the best. Personally for me, Warrens Story is beyond compare. needless to say. But it is in meeting this man and how every time i see him or speak to him he has an attitude that is always positive and exciting. I would place Warren in top 10 in World for Motivational speaking. And we have had Presidents, Mayors, actors, activists, political and religious leaders, and everyone in between."

We needed to see that if we wanted another outcome, we had to change the way we looked at ourselves and our future and commit to doing something about it.

  • Warren, you were warmly embraced with a standing ovation before you even reached the stage! Your message of perception and determination deeply touched the entire audience.
