“Your personal stories of growth and optimism struck a deep cord with those in attendance. If motivation was your only goal, you succeeded. However, if you were striving to inspire deep belly laughter, internal reflection, misty eyes, and a healthy dose of “open your eyes to the world that surrounds” as they say in Hollywood, you nailed it!  Your engaging presentation left all conference-goers thinking about how to embrace and savour life. Conference evaluations only confirmed how I felt: ”Wow.  Loved John Baumann as keynote speaker!!” “Such a motivated speaker. I will think of him and his life challenges when I am feeling down myself.  I know I will not feel that way much longer.” “Wonderful presenter! Touching, funny, inspirational!” “John Baumann was excellent. I didn’t want the presentation to end.  What a ‘Grand Finale’!” “Amazing!” Quality presenters are difficult to find, so I hope you don’t object to me recommending you to fellow colleagues.”
