what people say

Alex Ihama is a force that is engaging, passionate, spiritual and powerful. Once you are in his presence, you will be mesmerized by his zest for life. I am amazed by his compelling spirit to help others actualize their God-given gift and the unique star that lies in the depths of their being, waiting for the right opportunity to shine outwardly. His events are life-changing opportunities and an unforgettable experience.
Pauline Christian President, Black Business & Professional Association (BBPA)
I was struck by Alex Ihama’s presence, enthusiasm and the electricity he brought to the room. He walks and manages a fine line of being inspirational, provocative, humorous, passionate and purely entertaining. His experiences and wisdom are evident in his remarks. He compliments you and challenges you in the same sentence. He takes you on a journey of emotions which invokes laughter, deep thinking, reflection, and pride, and leaves you wanting more.
Mark Cummings President/Ceo, Scotia Bank Life Insurance Company
I felt uplifted by Alex's plea that we must keep moving forward, and we must reach greater heights. Only a few speakers are imbued with an ability to discharge a seemingly weighty message in earnest while, at the same time, delivering levity and laughter with precision.
Marlon Reid Vice President, Toronto Dominion (TD)
