quote1 His inspirational message was not only relevant to our students, but also our staff. His way of putting life in perspective hit home with our inner-city kids. Taking time to think about the good things they do have in their lives helped them to gain a more positive view of life and the power they have within themselves to create a better today and a better future.


I highly recommend Doug for school and other youth events. He was able to create a message that hit home for all. quote2

quote1 On behalf of Southern Polytechnic State University, I would like to endorse Doug Dvorak as an effective inspirational, motivational, humorous speaker. Doug presented as part of the University's annual kick-off, which is the week prior to the start of classes. His presentation was both humorous and timely. He specifically addressed current concerns in higher education, but with a positive approach.


Doug's ability to customize his presentation to specific organizations enables him to connect with his audience in an effective way. We are two weeks after his presentation and I am still getting requests for copies of his presentation. As one of the planners of the annual event, we wonder how do we top Doug's presentation?" He has our highest recommendation.  quote2

Mr. Dvorak's ability to customize his presentation to the specific requirements of our organization enables him to connect with his audience in a truly motivational and meaningful way. The members of our organization have seen how this talent makes him an effective and entertaining communicator and we highly recommend him to any organization.  quote2
