John hit a homerun and set off a lot of fireworks! He is a very knowledgeable, motivational presenter who definitely "walks the talk," and the best part about the very practical suggestions he made was that they didn't COST anything.
Dr. John Hodge is not only a gifted speaker, but has the ability to relate to his audience in a way that commands attention and participation. His personal stories, laced with his own brand of humor, create a personal relationship between the listener and the speaker. He has a special ability to bring any topic, no matter how difficult, to a level of deep understanding, thus creating a pathway for implementation.
