"Josh Van Berkel is the ultimate leadership professional. I have had the opportunity to work with Josh over the past 2 years in a variety of capacities, and his skills both from the back of the room in helping to develop teams of leaders, and from the front of the room, where he delivers rich, compelling (and often humorous) content have been exceptional both to witness and work with directly. I would have no hesitation to recommend Josh as your go to man when it comes to leadership development, facilitating compelling content, or inspiring people to create positive change in their lives."

"Professional development is key to high functioning teams. Josh is a solid investment for any organization wanting to draw out the best from their people, and our team of 35 has benefited from the solid principles and insight he brings. Josh is one of the most engaging presenters I have seen, communicating with clarity, humour & depth."

"As a professional business consultant, I’m often invited to share my expertise with groups. I have previously attended Toastmasters for years and found it a great way of learning the basics. However, Josh digs in at a much deeper level which helped me quickly improve my speaking skills and cover more ground in a short time. Josh knows his stuff. He really understands what your audience is looking for. You can tell he has a lot of experience in the hot seat himself as everything he suggests is backed up with a solid why and practical examples that make sense. All of this ultimately allows me to perform better, and attract more clients to my business."

He has provided insight into the building blocks of presenting live events and shared many ‘tricks of the trade’ making it a far easier task for his co-hosts."
