Speaking & Training Testimonials

"I learned so much from Dace's self care presentation.  He is very good at what he does and is a very sincere man.  He spoke to us not at us, and helped put the issues of what we may encounter in the field into perspective.  What I learned specifically is to not put myself last."

"Dace was a critical part of our Boys Health Program and Western Prevention Resource Center at Youth and Family Services. There are boys he worked with that completely turned their lives around. Dace was a critical element in conducting the Western SD Youth 2 Youth conference. This conference positively impacted close to 400 youth each year through its two conferences.  Dace has conducted several workshops at our all agency trainings this involves 150 human services employees. Through his workshops he has given a variety of great presentations that have helped the participants learn to de-stress from the pressures of every-day life.  He leaves people feeling renewed and inspires them to take what they have learned and apply it to their lives.  He is a dynamic and humorous presenter and uses powerful Mind-Body techniques in a grounded way that people can relate to. Dace embodies what he teaches and we appreciate the value he brings.  I highly recommend Dace for your speaking event!  If I could I would hire him back to work for me anytime”

I've heard Dace speak to an audience in a variety of capacities. First, he was an excellent group leader when he spoke to 16, 17, & 18 year old students I taught in an Employability class.  His topic include de-stressing, lowering anxiety, and being able to organize and focus on a task at hand.  My class was engaged and enjoyed the hands-on activities he provided. Dace was a favored speaker amongst the students and they even practiced his techniques in school.

Secondly, Dace, as a featured speaker during a district Health & Wellness day, was engaging and enlightening.  He connected with his audience with playful stories, thought-provoking scenarios, and an overall sense of relaxation. His break-out session was just as informative, active, and made the audience members more "self-aware."  Since his presentation, I've been practicing my "de-cluttering" and it really has made a mental and physical difference. Thanks Dace!
