Daren's humor, passion and insight electrified our family of franchisees.

“Daren's humor, passion and insight electrified our family of franchisees. His message was applicable and something that was rated as extremely useful by the franchisees. We will definitely be working with Daren in the future. Franchisees can be a tough crowd as each person may be at a different stage in their development. However, Daren's keynote was spot on. He was the highest ranked speaker of the meeting and they are asking for him to return!”

John Meetz: President at The Alternative Board® South Central Kansas (TAB)
He (Daren) was outstanding...

“Daren Martin was our Keynote speaker at the 2016 conference of The Alternative Board Franchise owners. He was outstanding at getting and holding the attention of 200 plus egotistical business consultants/coaches for 3 plus hours. His message is fresh, practical and can be applied by all sizes of business owners in all industries and professions. I gave his book to all of my clients for Christmas and 5 months later they are still talking about the real world ideas they are applying.”

Kelly Foy: Chief Executive Officer at Elite Meetings International
He (Daren) has the rare talent...

“After spending 3 days with Daren, our executive team is laser focused on the tasks at hand. He was able to turn what seemed to be overwhelming obstacles, into what we now see as extremely manageable tasks. He has the rare talent of being a visionary, while more importantly keeping reality in check. We now have the ability to clearly see things that were nothing more than blurry visions just a few weeks ago.”
