"I had the privilege of getting to know Chad during our Leadership Montgomery County Retreat in 2009! Recently spent 3 incredible days with him and our other wonderful classmates at the John Maxwell Certification event in Orlando, FL. He is now a certified speaker, trainer and coach! What a warm man who would be a blessing to any organization!"

"Chad provided strong leadership, activity specific coaching, and personal encouragement during our 2011 Leadership Montgomery County retreat. I connected with Chad, not only as a fellow former baseball player, but because he is a genuine and kind person, and communicates with empathy and gentleness rarely found in a strong leader."
