I’ve never seen a school assembly go so well. I fully recommend Melvin Adams. He was a godsend to our campus.

Chase Mielke was engaging, funny, and motivational. He provided strategies for staff to implement within their classrooms. We had staff share, who have worked with our ISD for 15 years or more, that Chase’s presentation was the best opening day they have been to. Chase has such an amazing way of connecting with ALL staff.

EJ Carrion engaged our group from the first second. He understands how to hook students to hear a positive message. I now know that it is possible for a great speaker to hold students’ attention for longer than a few minutes! So, the next time someone books EJ for less than one hour, push back and insist on at least one hour for an optimal experience.

Ashley Bendiksen was everything we wanted in a keynote speaker for our nonprofit’s fundraiser.

This was my first time putting together a speaking event and, therefore, my first time working with TYS Speakers.

Their personalities, professionalism, messaging, and kindness were more than we could have hoped for!
