It is safe to say I have heard my fair share of guest speakers. Having said that, I can honesty say that the Drive to Save Lives Tour delivered the most memorable and powerful message of them all.
I wanted to let you know when you came to my school you really got to me, you inspired me a lot and I’ve pledged to stay drug and alcohol free.
A few years ago you spoke at my school. I still think about that day all the time. You brought a sense of family to our school. Something we hadn’t felt before. Thank you for all you have done all across the country.
I enjoyed the Drive to Save Lives Tour presentation so much that I came down a second time and listened to it again. You managed to give me goosebumps and right then I knew you were very serious about the issue. I can guarantee you that because of your words I will never drink and drive.
Something that I’ve been doing a lot, almost every weekend, is drinking and driving, which I know is stupid but yet I do it anyways. Just being at your presentation has really made me think why do I do it? I know from just seeing what you’ve shown our school today, I will never ever do that again!
Your speech was very touching. Afterwards all I could hear in my school was how people are going to be more safe and ‘stick their necks out’ more. Thank you for coming and opening up so many peoples eyes.
It has been nearly three years since I saw Kevin’s presentation last.. but his inspirational message still follows me to this day. You are doing an absolutely amazing job and making this world a far better place.!!
Your story was amazing and it really inspired me! That story will be with me for life, I will never forget it or you. The way you told that story really sunk in and will hopefully help me make the right decisions in life.
Thank-you so much for coming to our school today! It definitely wasn’t just “another assembly.” It was much more! You’re such a positive person for having gone through so much! You’re story really touched mine and a lot of other people’s hearts, and I hope you come back and see us sometime. Thanks again!
An inspiring, real-life story that taught me to be more aware… Dr. Philʼs got nothinʼ on this!
Adam Brooks is an outstanding speaker that can reach out to his audience with enthusiasm and compassion with an inspirational and uplifting message that I will carry with me.
Adam was very inspiring, funny, and helpful but most of all became a good friend. Adam really talked to us about our self-esteem and how to believe in ourselves. I have been able to take what Adam taught us about and tell other people how to believe in themselves.
Your presentation will help me in further times when people are trying to get me to do stuff I don’t want to do. I just want to thank you for coming to our school and changing my life.
I learned that a fun night out can turn out tragic if we don’t think twice about our actions, drinking and driving should not occur anytime, anyplace. What you are doing is changing the world…
Your speech was the best speech i have ever seen or heard. If you never got your point across to those students, nobody will.
I really thought it was going to be another boring assembly, but she was fun, enthusiastic and it turned out to be probably the BEST assembly we have ever had!
I truly believe The Drive to Save Lives Tour reaches and impacts our students like no one else can.
I had students come to my classroom to tell me that your talk was the best program that they had ever heard. … Your passion and your story make you a tremendous influence on young and old alike. Don’t give up the fight. … You will never be forgotten.
Fabulous. So nice to see the reaction of the audience…teenagers sitting and listening and really getting it! …everyone who is driving age, or close to it… they need to see this!
Harriet was off the scale for audience reaction. She was a great choice for our event.
I’ve never seen junior high school students respond to anyone like they have to Harriet.
It was a very moving presentation. The students were extremely attentive. You could hear a pin drop. A real life example of what can happen when good decisions are not made. You certainly made an impression.
Never before have I seen anyone be able to gain the respect of a group of teenagers the way you did. … Even watching from a distance, I could tell that talking and working with youth is where you belong. …I hope that I am able to live my life with just a fraction of the integrity, compassion and commitment that you show. My life is forever changed because of you.
You’re a fantastic speaker with a genuine passion for helping others!
As a parent we can warn our children of the dangers of alcohol and drugs but the impact is not nearly the same as someone with first hand experience of the serious consequences. What you said made an impact on my son. Thank you for doing that.
A very personal and compelling message for youth. Our youth were touched and were still talking about your presentation today. I truly believe that you made an enormous impact on many of our youth and with hope they have learned a lesson from your son’s unfortunate death if they are ever in similar circumstances!
I just want to let you know that your presentation at our school just saved one of our student’s lives. You came to speak to us just a few weeks ago. We learned that this weekend there was a party and one of the students passed out. Because of what they learned from your story they were scared, but decided to get help for their friend. They put the life of their friend above the chance of them getting in trouble. The student had to be air lifted out and put on a ventilator. If they wouldn’t have called for help, he surely would have died. Even though it’s unfortunate that the student did drink as much as he did to get to that point, I am glad that his friends realized how serious his condition was. I just wanted to let you know that your story helped save a life!
Highly relevant, interesting, motivating speaker …Brilliant – relevant info for all students and all schools…..Absolutely riveting…..I learned so much- I loved the way you focused on the positive stuff.
“Adam is energetic, passionate and delivers in a style that both brings people to laughter and touches their hearts. He has a talent for gauging the needs of a group as he is speaking so that he can hit them where they are, that is what makes the difference! Adam’s style is second to none, casual upbeat and always delivered with a hook!
I wanted you to know the tremendous impact you had on my daughter. She was so impressed with what you shared and I am very grateful for your positive influence.
Natalie gives a very powerful presentation and provides real steps young teens need to be aware of when they date, attend parties or other functions. She is awesome!
Natalie’s empowering story of her own sexual assault survival has given me, my daughter and countless friends and family the tools and knowledge in understanding that we are not powerless, but we are powerful beyond measure!
This was, by far, one of the most powerful and meaningful presentations I have heard. The story Natalie tells … is unbelievably important, timely, and touches everyone who hears it. This should be required learning for every adult, every adolescent, every teenager, and every parent in this country.
The power of your presentation lies in its raw honesty and less than preachy message. In the debrief with my class the students felt you did more to help them make better choices than if I lectured again. Your presentation had it all!
The Drive to Save Lives Tour gave the students something that lectures, newspaper articles, textbooks, etc. can’t give them- Reality.
