“John Bwarie has a unique ability to home in on your personal brand and how you can effectively connect with customers, the community, etc. Having John is like having your own PR/stylist/brand consultant and life coach all in one.” – Tim Gaspar, CEO of Gaspar Insurance

“It was so powerful to learn what others hear when I share my message. It opened my eyes to understand that my message was not in alignment with my vision, and that I was trying to say too much and losing my audience.” – Brandi Orton, Los Angeles Aging Advocacy Coalition

“At a critical juncture in my career, as I stood at a crossroads that would take me in a new direction, John helped me to focus on how to communicate my passion and my ideas for a better way forward in addressing mental illness in America.  He has the ability to tease out the greater meaning and potential in your work and that provides a platform for confidence.” -Kerry Morrison, HeartForwardLA
