Here's what people are saying about Marv Fox Jr. Inspirational Speaking.
Thank you so much for providing us with an Outstanding Keynote address at our 4th School-wide All Staff Retreat 2016. We had over 260 staff members in attendance yesterday and all the feedback that I received was that you are a phenomenal speaker. U-M School of Dentistry staff was attentive to every word you spoke, they were engaged and truly inspired! Your workshop was just as Amazing and staff was motivated to jettison their careers and personal and professional development with clarity, purpose, and perspective. All the Jets have been fueled and are ready to take flight!

I honestly needed that talk so badly. I have been asking myself, "what am I even doing" and "what is my life right now"; for the past few days. Marv's talk reassured me of exactly what I already know. Purpose supersedes insecurity and that it takes intentional work to keep believing that. He gave some good ways to work at it and keep at it. Overall, I was so happy he talked about being on "purpose"; which answer the questions that I had been asking myself all through training!

Our large group was totally engaged in Marv’s stimulating presentation. The way in which Marv engages a crowd is unlike anything I have ever seen. I looked around the room and saw everyone completely locked in. His ability to teach is incredible and he's exceptional at making something as complicated at purpose easy to understand. His stories made it real and his humor made us laugh. Finding speakers who can entertain, engage, and inspire adults is rare...Marv is rare. If you have the opportunity to inspire the people you work with and for, you have to get Marv.

Marv, presented an exceptional presentation to our nurses as of celebration of Perianesthesia nurses week. The title of the presentation was very attractive “who is your hero”. The presentation was enlightening and gave us the challenge to live life intentionally. His presentation gave us a sense of purpose and made us think about how we can change our thoughts to become the more positive leaders and embrace our calling. I think about Marv’s presentation every day before I start my work and dwell on the thought to live life intentionally and purposefully.

In line with Trotter's vision of aiding students on their path to success in the face of adversity, Marv Fox Jr. encouraged lecture attendees to seize their dreams and unapologetically strive to reach their goals. It is often difficult to maintain a sense of motivation, particularly for marginalized groups and populations, but Fox challenged the audience to reach deep and find an unwavering sense of purpose that dwells within. Participants walked away from the lecture feeling recharged and ready to take on whatever life may throw their way.”

“The 2nd Annual W.M. Trotter Lecture’s theme was Dream, Declare, Commit and Succeed, and Marv Fox, Jr. helped the audience to imagine just that, as he encouraged those in attendance to view success as human. Marv did a wonderful job of incorporating the current issues and climate of the University of Michigan Trotter Multicultural Center into his speech; he also made mention of the 2016 MLK Symposium theme #WhoWillBeNext, which was spectacular. It was evident that Fox was fully aware of his audience!”
