“Authentic, energized, filled with humor…
and most importantly honest”

“One of the best speakers I have worked with.”


“Thank you again for speaking to our group today. We have never seen them so excited about mentoring!”

Matt Cronkite, Mentorship Coordinator, Year Up

“Bert Gervais was an engaging and interactive speaker during our Leadership Conference. His presentation for our student leaders was extremely helpful. Since then I have seen them implementing those tips in there own meetings. After it was over he even stayed the whole day to partake in the various activities that we had planned that day. I would highly recommend Bert to speak at any occasion!!”

Jean Desulme, Student Association President, SUNY Institute of Technology

“I must say that Bert Gervais has been one of the best speakers I have worked with – and I do not flippantly offer accolades. Bert is full of energy & excitement, but above all I could clearly see that he loves what he does and is passionate about inspiring those around him. I immediately had confidence in his ability to enliven our crowd. He is a top notch professional who has a knack for firing up college students. Bert — you’ve really found your niche – best wishes and thanks for making our event one that is still talked about today.”

Nakia Gray, Interim Director, College Now Program Medgar Evers College


“Bert was a pleasure to work with.  He came well before the start of the orientation and stayed long after it was over.

His motivational address to the audience was authentic, energized, filled with humor and most importantly filled with honest antidotes that everyone could relate to.  He signed copies of his book for attendees but with more than just his signature.  He took time to ask questions, answer questions and get to know the person before signing a personal message.  I am glad that the Medgar Evers College, College Now Program was able to benefit from Bert’s message.”

Bert Gervais’s presentations during our month long Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour consistently challenged the audience’s thinking and inspired the young people to take action on their dreams.

Bert held the young adults in rapt attention with his sense of humor, energizing language and skillfully developed visualization excercises. Student evaluations of Bert’s presentations were consistently scored at a 9.0 out of a 10 on a 1 to 10 scale. I would love to have Bert speak to California’s youth again!
