"Being 51 and listening to Sam speak for 2 hours, a very engaging and interesting 2 hours, makes me wish I had someone 30 years ago who spoke to me and inspired me to do better and be better at that age. I highly recommend Sam to anyone who is looking for a motivational speaker for the youth."

Sam is an engaging speaker whose story is relevant and relatable for young people.  Students were so engaged that every one of them put their phones away while he spoke.   Tania V. | St. Michael C.S.S

“Sam is an incredible presenter. His story is riveting, engaging and meaningful, and he was able to connect to his audience. I would highly recommend bringing him to your school to speak to students. You will end up with a bunch of students that want to make the world a better place.”  Seth G. | Leo Baeck Day School

“One of the best motivational speakers I have ever heard. It was enlightening, impactful, and educational. Sam is a very bright and hardworking young man who is an exceptional speaker and works very hard on continual self-improvement and growth. Loved every minute of the session with Sam. I’m excited to listen to him speak again.” — Amanda H. | Clearview Public Schools

“Sam did an amazing keynote address for our student body. He inspired them to perform small consistent actions.  Sam followed up his keynote with a series of weekly sessions focusing on actions that the high-performing student can make. We have already started to see the effects as our students started to create service projects and start clubs even while they are at home doing online learning. I am looking forward to working with Sam going forward as he brings such value with his message and really creates a connection as is he so young and inspiring and on point with our students.” — Jim R. | West Island College

 “Had the pleasure of having Sam as the keynote speaker for DECA U, Canada’s Largest Undergraduate Conference.  Sam was brilliant, engaging and inspiring with his message on how small consistent actions can go a long way.  From the early planning phases right up to and even following the keynote date, Sam was extremely professional, understanding and always stayed in touch to ensure we were on the same page.  I hope to welcome Sam back and have him involved at our future events!”  — Mauricio M. | DECA

“Sam’s ability to capture the student’s attention and connect with the audience was remarkable.  He offered inspirational stories and motivated our students to use small steps to make a big impact.  Thank you, Sam, for being a source of inspiration to our young learners!”  — Elaine R. | Halton Catholic District School Board

“Sam recently visited our school and delivered his testimony of finding hope through small consistent actions to our entire student body (1200 students, grades 7-12). I had the pleasure of working with Sam since November 2019 to coordinate this school-wide event and from the moment I initiated the booking, Sam’s professionalism, respect, and kindness were exemplary. He spent the whole school day with us, delivering his 1-hour presentation FOUR SEPARATE TIMES! Needless to say, that’s no easy feat and he executed it with competence, determination, and charm.  The student and staff response was like nothing I had ever seen before.  He had every group engaged from beginning to end. Some feedback: “Sam’s stories were funny and relatable.”  “I took a lot from his determination and I feel inspired to work as hard as he does.”  “I liked how he didn’t pretend to be someone he wasn’t.  “He seemed genuine and himself and that’s what got me invested in his message.”  “Where can I see him speak again???”  All of this to say, 10/10 would recommend.  Thank you, Sam!”  — Paola D. | All Saints C.S.S

“Sam was such an inspiration to my students and staff!  His message of ‘small consistent actions’ spoke to the hearts of my school community!  Students, teachers, and parents have all commented on how engaging his personal story teaches young students to find purpose in their lives.  As principal, this was HANDS DOWN the BEST presentation I ever had at my school! Thx Sam!”  — Fernando R. | Edmonton Catholic Schools

“We first met Sam Demma at a Real Estate conference and were so moved by his message that we hired Sam to speak at our children’s school.  I have never seen elementary children so captivated and engaged, we even had numerous students and teachers come up to us afterwards to thank us and say this was the best presentation they have ever been to. We highly recommend Sam and believe that he will enhance the lives of anyone he speaks to!“  — Jess P. | John McCrae P.S.

“Sam Demma provided an amazing keynote address to almost 100 Catholic high school students from Durham Catholic District School Board this past November for our Year of Hope Student Summit: Rooted in Faith, Growing in Hope.  His keynote message was very powerful and the students and staff alike were riveted to his every word.  He was extremely professional, organized and engaging throughout our encounters with him.   His energy, authenticity and timely message about small, consistent actions left them motivated to go back to their respective schools and begin social action.  I would highly recommend Sam.”  — Tish S. | Durham Catholic DSB

“Sam did a fantastic job with our 9th-grade class.  He is professional, kind, and has a meaningful message to share with students.  Working with him was simple and enjoyable and I would not hesitate to bring him back again.  Hopefully, we can meet in person one day!  Thanks, Sam!”  — Diana L. | Princeton High School

Sam came to our high school this past September and instantly made an impact with our students.  His talk was funny, engaging and memorable.  Sam is genuinely a nice guy and very charismatic.  It felt like he had been sharing his craft for 20 years.  Many students waited around after his talk so they could meet him and ask questions.  He had time for all of them.  Later this year we ran into him again at a Leadership conference in Niagara Falls.  I felt like I was running into a friend.  I would really like to hear him speak again and I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend him to other schools.”   John S. | Southwood Secondary 

“I’ve heard Sam speak twice – once in-person and once at a virtual event.  Both times he was incredibly captivating and inspirational.  What makes Sam a great speaker is that he is able to tell a story and keep you on the edge of your seat without any major visual tools.  He creates a comfortable environment for everyone watching and motivates them to take on their next big project.  Also, he’s easy to work with, very flexible and accommodating.  I highly recommend any organization or group that is looking for a motivational speaker at their next event to have a chat with Sam!”  — Anika P. | Canadian Association of Business Students

“Sam is a thoughtful, reflective, enthusiastic and passionate speaker.  His message is carefully crafted for maximum impact yet executed in a way that comes across as so natural and engaging.  He was willing to do whatever was required to make our event a success and to do all of it with great professionalism and positivity.  Sam is wise beyond his years, funny, insightful, impactful and will make your students want to listen and be inspired.  His message of ‘small consistent actions’ is one that anyone and everyone should listen to and can be tied to so many important educational initiatives that we believe are important for student growth and learning.  I’d give Sam 10 stars if I could….he is really THAT GOOD!”  — Lisa G. | Halton District School Board

“I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with Sam throughout the summer of 2020 on our Talent Accelerator at CoLabL, and he is one of the most goal-oriented and results-driven professionals that I have worked with in my 20+ year career.  Sam is an incredibly gifted speaker that can energize, inspire and call an audience to action with his masterful storytelling, engaging activities and authentic voice. You can sense how much Sam is cheering his audience along and how passionate he is to share tools and tangible steps that anyone can take to set and achieve their goals across all dimensions of their lives. I highly recommend Sam for speaking opportunities and youth training programs, and I can’t wait to further collaborate with him as well!”  — Daniel H. | CoLabL

“Sam spoke to our Grade 10 Career Studies class.  His vision and ideas for students really helped them consider and reflect upon their future goals and gave them tools and strategies to succeed.  Highly recommend Sam and his program.”  — Jamie L. | Northeastern Catholic District School Board

“Sam was an AMAZING speaker and perfectly moulded his address specifically to the theme of our event. He related to our students, engaged with them, shared in a couple of laughs, and most importantly, inspired each and every student in attendance. Speakers like him are hard to find, you don’t want to miss out on him.  — Ashley H. | Goodman School of Business

“Sam’s message of looking for positives and maintaining perspective in our lives can help anyone keep a healthy mindset.  His message of performing small, consistent actions is relatable and actionable advice that can help improve our lives and the lives of those around us.  A truly impressive presentation.  Thank you, Sam!  — Chris V. | Ottawa Catholic School Board

“Sam presented to my Grade 10 Careers Studies class over a period of 4 days.  His presentations were wonderful!  Sam is a dynamic, engaging and motivational individual who has a way of connecting to each student (even virtually!).  My students were able to take away at least one thing from his presentations that I know will help them as they journey through high school and into post-secondary.  I highly recommend bringing Sam to your school – you will not be disappointed!  — Shannon J. | Windsor Essex C.S.S

“Through shared personal experiences and relatable life lessons surrounding goal setting, perseverance, determination and small constant actions, Sam Demma fully and completely engaged my class for the entire 4-day session.  They could easily relate to a young person around their age and his energy was contagious!!  All of my students gave him a 5/5 and even a few 10/5, they loved it that much!!  I would highly advise the High Performing Student Program to anyone looking for a new fresh perspective on goal setting, creating values, and following your dreams.  — Ashton O. | Lambton Kent District School Board
