What People Are Saying

"The Professional PowerPoint Party with BehaviorRx was incredible. I loved being a part of it as much as I loved learning from the other presenters. There is no greater place I want my teenage son to be than in that room learning from so many amazing people."
Ben Dodge
Keynote Speaker
"Attending this event was life changing. My son’s perspective on himself and life in general has shifted in a more positive manner. The presenters at this event were spot on in helping my son see life in a more meaningful and growing way. My son’s confidence has grown and is now seeing his adversities as a way to grow. He now sees there is a purpose for him being born the way he was in this life. It’s amazing that these types of positive mindset conferences are available for youth. We will definitely be attending this event again."

"The Professional PowerPoint Party was the best way I could have spent my Saturday! The speakers each had much to offer. I found great value in their words as they shared their unique experiences-it was powerful! I left with a desire to do and be better! This event is for anyone that is looking to associate with others who are making a difference, using their talents and energy for good and sharing how we can all navigate the ups and downs of life and come out on top! Thanks to BehaviorRx for sponsoring such a great, worthwhile event!"

"The speech I gave at the professional development event was a great experience. I enjoyed hearing from everyone else that presented. It was definitely an inspirational experience not just for those listening for also for those presenting. I'm very grateful for this opportunity and I definitely learned a lot about myself. I didn't think that people would want to hear and learn from me. So I'm very grateful for that."

Everyone was very welcoming and overall I had an incredible time! I would highly recommend this event to anyone looking for some extra motivation to make big changes in their life."
