“Tom Reid has given presentations to the Renton Chamber of Commerce on two occasions at out Networking Breakfasts. Both of his presentations were well received by the participants. His presentation of  ‘Overcoming Self-Defeating Behavior and Living Your Personal Best’ is thought provoking, engaging and motivating. We had Tom speak at our first breakfast this year in January; his presentation was perfect for the new year, ‘Creating Your Mission Statement for Work and for Life’. Attendees walked away from the breakfast with a mission statement with goals for the year. Tom is engaging, enthusiastic, encourages audience participation and is motivating. He was diligent in customizing his presentations to the expressed needs of our group. Tom met with me prior to both events in order to better understand the audience. I would highly recommend Tom as a motivational speaker. I look forward to having Tom present again at a Renton Chamber of Commerce event.”
