“There is a unique purity and intensity to Caryn’s motivational message. In telling of her path to wellness, paved through the challenges of not one, but two, cancer diagnoses, Caryn provides inspiration that meets the listener wherever they may be on their wellness journey. Caryn did such a tremendous job interviewing to present at the Business Women’s Forum, that I recommended her as the speaker for a CIGNA Women’s Leadership event. She got both gigs, naturally, and went on to earn superlative feedback from both audiences. If you’re looking for a smart, savvy, engaging, empowering, and thoroughly enjoyable presenter, I strongly encourage you to hire Caryn. In a word, she is Amazing!”
“Caryn is one of those rare talents who can draw an audience in quickly with her contagious personality and capture their attention throughout with her vivid storytelling and personal experiences. Caryn leaves the room feeling powered, positive and motivated to make changes in their own life. I would hire Caryn again in a heartbeat to speak to any business audience interested in inspiring employees to take simple steps to a healthier life as I’ve seen the immediate impact it had on the employees at Caribou Coffee.”
“Hiring Caryn Sullivan as a motivational wellness speaker will be the best thing you do this year! Her practical, realistic guidance for how to make small, yet impactful, changes in your life or workplace to improve your well-being and health are spot on. Her interpersonal and humorous style of presenting information makes for such an engaging and truly life-changing experience. She “gets it” – she gets the corporate environment and she gets how hard it can be to make changes in our busy lives. That was what struck me most about her was that I could actually accomplish the things she was suggesting and I didn’t feel badly if I couldn’t do a full 180! Caryn is simply fantastic.”
“Caryn is an incredibly engaging speaker. Her knowledge around healthy living is invaluable for any busy professional who is dealing with the stress of juggling career and personal life.
