"Lance’s presentation to our hospital leadership and donors goes beyond words. A physician told me afterward that she was inspired to give even more to the hospital–in terms of philanthropy and time. Dr. Secretan’s message is so powerful that people are clamoring for him to come back and people who couldn’t come are calling and asking that we bring him back so they have another chance! This was more than a presentation. It was a wonderful and moving experience for everyone lucky enough to be in the room."
--St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation

"Of all the speakers I have been exposed to in my life, you are, without the shadow of a doubt, the one who has moved me and will change my life forever."

"Once you began your presentation, the energy in the room completely switched. Suddenly, you were talking about things that truly mattered —how do we create inspiring organizations, what do we really want for our lives? People sat up, they stopped fiddling about on their phones. I could see your words were affecting them deeply and they wanted to hear more. It was captivating for all of us. I learned a great deal, not just more about the principles behind The Spark, the Flame and the Torch, but what it means to passionately convey those ideas and connect with others."
--Keir Overton

"I just wanted to thank you again for a truly inspiring keynote address to our boards of trustees and leaders. Your message carried over the next two days and will certainly be a foundation for discussion at future board and leadership team meetings. I hope our paths cross again soon."
