Students raved about him long after the event and we would certainly invite him back to light the fire of passion in our students.”

“Darrell “Coach D” Andrews, who is know nationwide as America’s Passion Coach, was invited to make a presentation for our organization. Workforce Solutions South Plains invited Mr. Andrews to conduct the Job Readiness Workshop that is held bi-weekly in the Lubbock office. The workshop was held Tuesday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. I am the facilitator that conducts these workshops, and was so honored and privileged to be able to observe all four sessions. He did an outstanding job, and I feel each participate walked away a better and more informed person. I really learned a lot from him and plan to incorporate what I learned in my future workshops.

One of the many things I was impressed with was how easily he related to the participants. He made a suggestion they form a “Dream Team” in order to support one another. I thought this was powerful! I talked with one of the participants this morning to see if they did follow through over the weekend, and was told they did and how much it has helped her knowing others care and support her.

I wish we would be able to invite him back in the future because he is one of the BEST motivational speakers I have heard in my years of employment.”
