Ari was the keynote speaker for our annual convention. We are so happy we chose him. Our attendees were engaged the whole time and were wanting more even after he finished. Ari sold some books after his talk and I honestly didn't think our group would buy any, but to my surprise they were buying multiple copies! If you are looking for a keynote speaker Ari is a great choice.
Ari immediately engaged our audience delivering a powerful message tailored just for our intimate group. In just minutes, our quiet group was interactive, focused, energized, and taking notes. Ari’s passion for helping others, both personally and professionally, shines through in his captivating message. You will leave his session with “nuggets” of determination, change, and success that you can apply to any life situation.
I was invited to this event and couldn't wait to see what it would all entail. To make a long story short I did not want it to end. Ari's knowledge, motivation and BIG heart made me realize to always think positive and never stop dreaming no matter what other's think. I can't wait for the next event and the next!
When I signed up for this workshop, I didn't know what to expect. I had never attended anything like it. Ari was entertaining and insightful. His knowledge and viewpoints hit home, and they enabled me to make meaningful changes to the way I looked at my career, family, and life.

has worked with some of the biggest names in the financial services industry,
and was a bond trader and investment banker for most of his business career.
He now divides his time between speaking engagements, being an
entrepreneur, and his philanthropic endeavors.
Previously involved with some of the largest network marketing companies in
the world, he started on a path of personal development almost twenty years
ago, and has been studying with some of the best success coaches in world,
honing his skills. He states, “In this continuing journey, I have learned much

Ari has a natural ability to reach individuals on a very deep and personal level,

others to do the same, that is the reward, and the prize in life. It is the most
fulfilling thing I have ever done, and I am always learning.”

engagements, or in the Caribbean, enjoying the sand and beach.
