Mr. Swinton was so dynamic and energetic (Speaking at the International Association of Administrative Professionals-Old Dominion Chapter Annual Conference).  We need to bring him back again.

The SOAR beyond your expectation book gave me the motivation and the courage I needed to start my organization Davidson County Transitional Services, Inc.

G. C. Wade, Staff Development Coordinator/Grant Writer
Petersburg City Public Schools • Petersburg, VA

Derius Swinton is a very unique and truly amazing speaker. As keynote speaker for our opening convocation, he was extremely motivating, inspiring, passionate and very interactive. His message to our staff of over 1,500 was right on target! He immediately swept up the audience and kept them captivated with his knowledge, enthusiasm and energy. He engaged the audience entirely and refused to accept any crowd enthusiasm below a boiling point nor any response that didn't roar! He was AWESOME!!!
