Hi Fred, Thanks again for your dynamic speech at the credit union conference this past weekend. It really meant a lot to me and I wanted to thank you again.
I thought you would like to know that I am an aspiring author and your speech gave me a game plan to follow and the inspiration I need to follow through with my dream. I can't thank you enough!

“Kind of like Macbeth on Speed!"
"Last night was such a winning event! While our speaker, (Fred Schafer) was very entertaining, he also has tremendous speaking abilities and a message that seemed to capture the interest and ears of everyone present. The mood was spirited. There’s no doubt that everyone had a good time and found it to be worthwhile. When a speaker is that engaging, we don’t have to worry much about how early the bar opens!"
Great Job! Mary Ann
"You came here to talk to our clients but I was consumed myself. It was so encouraging and positive - I benefited greatly. I have no doubt everyone did"
Tricia Brendler, Shasta County, CA
Fred, I appreciated working with you from start to finish. Other speakers should take a lesson from you – you were very professional and easy to work with – I thank you for delivering a great message and keynote too!”
Kimera Coady, Oregon Refuse and Recycling Association
Just wanted to thank you for a great presentation. THANKS for such a MOTIVATING and INSPIRATIONAL day. You have a true GIFT.
The best testimony to your effectiveness was that week-end, when one of the attendees was overheard at Starbucks relating your philosophy on “Striking back at Mediocrity” to one of her friends with such enthusiasm! You may have only spoken to 110 people but your message was heard much farther. Thanks for the new “You CAN do it” attitude!
Kim McGeoghegan - Golden State Risk Management Authority
Fred, thanks for the excellent program yesterday in Buffalo. Although you presented over three hours, you could have continued for the entire time of the conference and all those in attendance would have still have enjoyed and benefited from your extended time. Your style of delivery and the techniques you utilized in the presentation were unique. The material covered was extremely valuable and will be by used by many on an ongoing basis.
Thomas O'Shea, Network of Aging
"Was not sure I would enjoy this....boy was I wrong! The humor was out of this world and he was on the mark with everything. I felt like he was only talking to me. Not at me, but to me. He makes me want to be better and this was the first time I felt important to a speaker. Definitely one of a kind!"
Lori Lloyd – Virginia School Nutrition Association
I want to thank you for an extremely inspirational seminar. You definitely have had a profound effect on all the managers who attended. Your ears must be ringing because you have been the topic of conversation ever since. Managers are telling their employees all about you. I am also taking orders for your book and DVD and will be sending it in next week. Thank you for sharing your very valuable information that will definitely help us for years to come!
Progression not perfection!!!!
JoAnn Manson - Human Resources - Congressional Country Club, Washington, DC
I heard Fred today and he was the most motivational speaker I have ever listened to!!! He made me want to strike back at mediocrity and become what I have known I wanted to do but feared.
Thanks to Fred, I will face my fears, not focus on my flaws and focus on my cause.
Thank you for your inspiration! You are a sensational motivator!
Wendi Bryant, Professional Insurance Agents Association
Just wanted to follow up with you and let you know that everyone had great comments on both your presentations. The message you delivered does truly fit all aspects of our lives and business. The enthusiasm and right on deliverance of your message was in itself inspirational. You have followed your dream and are making a difference in others' lives. What an uplifting action plan.
Again you were a great addition to this not so mediocre group of Insulation Manufacturers, Fabricators, Distributors, and Contractors. I think we gained three plumbers after they passed in the hall and heard the resounding Drip-Drip-Drip!Ha!
