I was so excited to bring them Josh Shipp’s message….but I really wasn’t sure how well it would settle across the room.  Well, as soon as Josh Shipp began to talk, I knew it was the perfect message.  The attendees will not be the same.  Many said it was the single best conference they had ever attended. We needed that message.  It was perfect.

Josh Shipp exceeded expectations yesterday- we just couldn’t have asked for a better speaker for our keynote. I truly appreciated his vulnerability, ability to make people laugh, and the good ideas and inspiration he brought to everyone in the room. I also heard great feedback from our audience about him and how they felt refreshed and inspired by his talk. So thanks, truly. You made us look good.

Audience: Educators & Staff

Josh Shipp far exceeded my expectations.  I knew he would be good, but honestly didn’t know he would be THAT good.  We had more than one donor come to our fundraising luncheon with a check but, after hearing Josh poignantly connect his story with the services our nonprofit provides, ripped it up and wrote a new one for a larger amount.
