“On behalf of the Board of Director of the Multicultural Luncheon meetings at the City Club in Los Angeles, I would like to thank you for taking part in our Network meeting as our Speaker. These meetings have been in existence for over 2 years and it is because of dedicated academics such as yourself that it still continues to be such a success.

Your talk on “Ignite your passions” was outstanding and your ideas certainly sparked a lively debate among all of those in attendance. It was an honor for us to hear your ideas and we have received many favorable remarks about your speech and the style in which you delivered the information.

Thanks again for your time and for providing such an informative and motivational speech.”

Samuel has been one of Malibu Rotary’s very best speakers in the last year, has spoken twice, most recent was the last few weeks after his book “Pack a Bigger Punch” was published. Well prepared, poised, articulate, humorous, he engaged our audience from the beginning, makes good use of his public appearances, drama background. I wanted to add our highest recommendation for your future speaker consideration.

In my 63 years as an officer and member of Rotary I have had the pleasure of introducing and/or listening to some of the world’s most prominent speakers and writers. Up until most recently I believed that I had heard the best. Then I had the most wonderful experience of introducing Samuel Osborne as the speaker at the Rotary Club of Woodland Hills, Ca. How amazing. Sam completely captivated our 60 plus members as he excited and inspired us with his eloquent presentation. No matter what your business, professional or status in life you will gain a keen insight into how to be a success and enjoy your place in life, after hearing Sam’s most beautiful talk.

I had the pleasure of hearing Sam speak as a special guest at our weekly class for homeless youth at the Union Rescue Mission in Downtown Los Angeles. Sam is incredibly engaging and charismatic. Often the kids are restless and tired after a long day, but Sam immediately grabbed their attention and commanded it for the entirety of class. He sparked curiosity and enthusiasm in the children. By the time he was finished he had them howling with laughter. Sam is an excellent speaker, a wonderful entertainer, and a role model to the children in our class. We would be lucky to have him back!

Samuel, your speech today was absolutely enriching and very thoughtful. Talking about dreams is very uplifting and many of the club members asked you questions that they really wanted to know the answers to by going into the dreaming and drawing of the dreaming. You just did an awesome job, thank you so much for being our guest.

I just had the pleasure of seeing Sam Osborne speak to our women’s group and he’s just fabulous. If you’re looking for a speaker to enliven an audience, set a different perspective and tone for how women can look at business and their life, definitely reach out to him to see how he can transform your next meeting as well. Thank you, Sam.

Sam was a wonderful speaker, he gave down to earth nuggets, he gave some exercises that could equate to each person in the room and he really gave us some valuable advice to use in our businesses. I really appreciated him coming to our meeting.

I had the pleasure today of seeing and hearing the one of the most entertaining and informative speakers that we’ve ever had and that is Sam Osborne. Amazing! So talented the way he can ‘do sound’, the way he can tell the story, his philosophy of life is inspirational. I recommend him highly for anybody who’s looking for a speaker.

Samuel was a guest speaker at our Rotary Club of Thai Town on the topic of Entrepreneurship, Success and Self-Worth. He was inspirational and kept it fun and interactive for our members and friends. I would gladly recommend him as a speaker to other organizations.
