“Classy individuals who are full of integrity and enthusiasm for excellence pass through this life few and far between.  Cliff Dugosh is one of these great men who not only expresses these characteristics and philosophies, he lives them.  Everyone should get the opportunity to rub shoulders with Cliff and be touched by his words.  I take great pride in calling him my friend.”

“Cliff, I didn’t get the chance to simply say thank you. You truly saved me. I have hit a very rough spot in my life lately. I have found myself blaming God for many things, which isn’t right! When you were speaking to us, I couldn’t help but cry. You made me realize to be so much more thankful for everything that I do have. I have been trying and trying to be happy with everything, but I feel almost as if I have been faking it. Not anymore though, since your speech, I feel so much stronger and happier than I have in the past six months! I couldn’t thank you enough for that!”

E-mail from a high school junior, 2009

“Cliff has an uncanny ability to grip you on an emotional level when he speaks. He doesn’t rely on cliché quips or silly stunts to keep an audience’s attention because his goal is to leave a lasting impact more than it is to entertain. He is a world-class speaker with the right motives. It’s such an enjoyable experience listening to him that you hardly realize just how deeply you’re being moved.”
