"Kent is extremely easy to work with. And wow, his keynote had people in awe the entire time... from laughing one moment to thinking deeply the next. Everyone was engaged the entire time and we had so many compliments about the keynote this year that it was unlikely anything we've ever had in the past. It was simply an amazing morning and Kent has set the standard for all future speakers we bring in!"
—Jennifer Fisk, Nevada ACTE
"Kent’s SHOW UP and SHINE keynote was perfect for our association members. In fact, it was so good that I’ve already been approached by two other leaders that want to book Kent. I told them that not only is Kent’s message excellent (which they saw for themselves), but his positivity and enthusiasm are unparalleled. The same confidence and strength of character he exudes on stage are the same qualities you see when you work with him behind-the-scenes. He’s professional, reliable, and exhibits a can-do attitude at all times. He's simply amazing to work with!”
—Rachel Rutledge, Education Association, South Carolina CTE
(and Coordinator for Education and Business Summit)
"Great job of sharing classroom strategies that really work. For example, your 4 Fence Posts of 100 Percent Responsibility is so practical and real...not the run-of-the-mill strategies I've heard from other motivational speakers for educators. Keep sharing your strategies and telling your story—both are needed!"
—Caren Floyd, Principal, Compton United
"Kent Julian is a true gift! When he speaks at your conference, he is there to serve, not to be served.
"His E+R=O message was perfect for our association. It not only helped our members grow professionally, but it’s a message that they can apply to their personal lives as well.
"I shared feedback with Kent from our conference attendees (I cannot always do that with speakers because the feedback isn't always positive) and words like awesome, amazing, and loved it were used over and over to describe both his keynote and breakout presentations."
—Dana Crumpton, President, South Carolina Career and Development Professionals
"Awesomely simple and completely true! Thank you for reminding me that it's all about the environment I cultivate."
—Susan Gatlin, Counselor, Terra Linda High School
"Kent Julian's presentation was awesome! He uses amazing energy, information, stories, and humor to drive home all of his excellent points. He is so much more than the typical motivational speakers for teachers that we usually see at conferences (although he is extremely motivational). He really breaks down a teacher's job and helps us see how we can encourage outstanding performance in our students!"
—Meaghan Palmer, Teacher, G.W. Middle School
"Kent Julian is definitely one of the most dynamic and entertaining motivational speakers for teachers I've ever seen. He had our faculty fully engaged throughout his presentations. Numerous staff members commented that his presentation assisted them in focusing on the right things in the classroom (i.e. classroom leadership instead of classroom management). Many also said that Kent reminded them that the most important part of their job is to help students reach their potential both in education and life. Bottom line, the presentation included outstanding practical skills that faculty members can immediately utilize in assisting students to be successful!"
—Kenney Wells, Principal, Berkmar Middle School
"Thank you for your invaluable contribution to our Rethink. Retool. Reset. Summer Conference. The feedback from our attendees is in and your closing keynote was a great success. In fact, the final verdict was: 'You knocked it out of the park!'"
—Sally Smith, Executive Director, Alabama Association of School Boards
"Kent Julian's presentation was motivational and filled with practical classroom leadership ideas I can successfully implement right now! I highly recommend that administrators and teachers listen to Kent Julian's DREAM-to-DO presentation. You'll definitely learn the difference between classroom management and classroom leadership!"
—Sylvia Castaneda, Administration, Roma High School
"Kent is one of the best motivational speakers for teachers and educators I've seen. His message at our Fall Kickoff event was outstanding!"
—Dr. Steve Flynt, Chief Academic Officer, Gwinnett County Public Schools
"UPLIFTING! I had the privilege of hearing Kent at a HOPE Education Conference that I attended, and he would be a tremendous education keynote speaker for the opening of a school year for any school or district!"
—Zoe Marcus, Principal, Oak Ridge Elementary
"Thank you for being so incredibly talented onstage and super easy to work with. For a Meeting Professional, you are truly one of the rare jewels out there as a speaker!”
—Brenda Merkel, Presentation College
"Part stand-up comedian. Part dynamic story-teller. Totally-incredible motivational speaker for educators. Kent Julian is the master of inviting his audience on a journey of laughter, encouragement, intensity, and inspiration while communicating clearly that each of us as educators can be 100% responsible for our success in both life and leadership by living E+R=O!"
—Lisa Firestone, CTE Teacher
"I LOVED the THAT DAY strategy!"
—Licci Moore, O. Garza Elementary
