"Tom presented his GEO Principles at our April 2009 Jam Session. We received RAVE REVIEWS from the 30 folks in attendance. An exciting, stretching, invigorating topic. People left the 90-minute session inspired and ready to play a bigger - or different - role in the world. You'll thoroughly enjoy Tom's wisdom."

"Tom you were a real blessing. Your ideas showed that you have reflected deeply on how to experience a relationship with God through work. You were both bold and inoffensive as you shared your thoughts. You came across as genuine but not preachy."

"I want to personally thank you for talking to our Serra Club this past Friday.  Several  people have remarked to me they appreciated hearing your views about putting God into one's everyday workplace.  Even though most of our club is now retired they understand and agree with your premise of putting God in our daily  lives.  They appreciated having a different type speaker with a message that really needs to be heard in today's world.  I only wish I had heard it when I was active in the corporate world as it's  simplicity is really what resonated with me." 

-Gary Lyons


"Tom was a breakout session presenter at an ICBA national convention. I saw Tom address a room full of bankers; his insight is illuminating and his presentation style is engaging.  Tom is very knowledgeable and informed on current bank topics. "
