By the end of his talk with all of the student-athletes, we were all crying and hugging each other even though we barely knew the people surrounding us.
One of the main reasons that I really wanted to bring all that I had learned back to UVA was related to the guest speakers, like Curtis Hill.
Curtis Hill is a great speaker that can engage with a diversified audience. Curtis’ analogies and variety of profound subjects will have you anticipating what he will say next. His personality gives him the advantage to capture the attention of young adults. With his energy and passion he is sure to cultivate the minds of his audience.

Curtis Hill is the type of speaker that connects with his audience with his honest and true experiences. He is intelligent with the perfect mix of humor. With his amazing story telling ability, he is able to reach students where they are and motivate them to new levels. His message is unique for college students, universities and young professionals. After listening to him speak, you leave wanting more from him but most importantly wanting more for yourself.

Curtis did an excellent job. He was honest, insightful and encouraging. The audience was extremely interested in his message. He has a great presence, and is a talented speaker. After the lecture, the students stayed and asked questions. He motivated them and made them think about a lot of issues. We will definitely have Curtis back for another lecture or workshop.

Curtis, I would like to personally thank you for speaking at our first, “Back to School Survival Retreat.” Your message prepared parents, students and ed-ucators with the tools needed to return to school. Our young people were talking about your message for months after the retreat. We are requesting that you be our speaker for our next retreat.

Curtis was very quick to recognize exactly who his audience was and to identify with them at any level. The enthusiasm that he omitted to the audience was truly amazing. I can honestly say that he proved to be one of the most personal speakers invited to the campus. I feel that he really made a difference. Before leaving I asked Curtis how was the session and he told me, “As long as I know I touched the heart of one student I know that my job was done.” He not only touched one student. he touched many.

I am beyond blessed to have experienced a great message from Curtis Hill. His delivery was phenomenal, no matter what background you are from, he can reach you. His words were powerfully encouraging and overall motivated me to believe in myself and leadership skills. I left in tears, not only because his encouraging message related to my life, but because he was hilarious and he used his life as an example. Everything he shared pulled me closer to wanting to share my testimonies and help people as he does…he was truly amazing. I want to hear him again, and again!
