Adversity and setbacks as an athlete & coach have caused me to look deep inside, and find the resolve to not quit. I made the decision not to give in to the pain and challenge myself to dig deep, raise the bar and go for my dreams. These experiences have given me transferable concepts to impact others.
I've had the privilege of knowing coach Mendezona for 35 years and what an amazing speaker and motivator he is. He has a way of capivating his audience through his passion and deep seeded beliefs that makes you feel like you can achieve anything. Not only does coach talk the talk but he models what he teaches. We have had him over a few times and we are looking forward to having him again.
Coach Mendo has been a force to reckoned with as a motivational speaker, coach and trainer. We have been working with Coach Mendo for many years in our community in Alaska. Our experience with him has been positive and always beneficial. He spoke to our church, our team and our community leaders. His enthusiasm is infectious. His knowledge of the game of basketball and the game of life is truly amazing. Kids and adults alike will reap the rewards of his motivational speaking events and seminars. I can not recommend coach Mendo enough. He is the real deal!!
Over the past six years I’ve heard Coach Mendo speak, trained with him as he prepared for a 50 mile race, watched him lead camps and clinics, and witnessed his one-on-one coaching with my son. Across every aspect of his life and work, he absolutely embodies integrity and discipline, as well as infectious energy, enthusiasm, persistence and joy. Coach Mendo’s speaking is like a shot of adrenaline and a spark that motivates effective, goal-driven action.
I've seen and heard coach Mendo speak many times at camps, clinics, banquets, special events, etc., and every time the messages were powerful and inspirational. Coach Mendo has a special way of connecting with his audience, all ages, and getting them to take action in their lives to maximize their full potential.
I heard the truth because there was a real life behind the words. Coach Mendo spoke about things that were real because the words had reality and experience behind what he was speaking about. Coach Mendo speaks with authority and power because of the experiences and accomplishments in his life. He has done and is still doing the very things he is encouraging others to do. He has made a path and a road for people to follow if they want to accomplish extraordinary greatness in their life.
I have had the opportunity to hear coach Mendo speak in many different settings over the years. I have witnessed him not just impact my own kids and their peers, but also MYSELF! He encouraged and helped me learn how to gain the confidence I needed in my college basketball career and inspired me until my very last game. Now he's motivating me to be the best wife and mom that I can be while still pushing myself to reach many fitness goals that I set. The coolest thing about Coach Mendo is that you can't place him in one particular category of speaking. He has so many different impactful stories to share that could touch so many people of all ages, on different walks of life! Not only does he have personal experiences he shares thru his exciting stories, but he gives specific stepping stones for you to take into your life and apply immediately. I find coach Mendo very inspiring and would recommend him to speak to ANYONE that wants to positively progress in this life that can be difficult. If you are looking for someone to get you out of your slump and help you take action.....he is the man for the job. Coach Mendo will leave you feeling inspired and eager to start chasing your dreams!
Coach Wayne (Mendo) Mendezona and I have known each other for almost 15 years. I first met Coach Mendo when he was Founder and CEO of Quick Handle Basketball Camps, a successful business where he trained and developed athletes on the fundamentals of basketball techniques. During that period, I worked a short time marketing his business where I saw him as a strong leader, visionary and entrepreneurial thinker.
Later on, I worked with Coach Mendo a second time after he introduced me to a healthy means to supplement my eating plan. I worked at some of his basketball camps promoting healthy drinks and snacks for the kids. This was when I realized not only was Coach Mendo a great administrator and business leader, but also a very skillful charismatic and dynamic speaker as well. He would have the kids in his camps do mental performance exercises that made them mentally tough to play the game of life as well as basketball. Over many years and still to this day, his motivational messages are some of the best ones around.
In summary, Coach Mendo is a people person, unifier, instructor, motivator, and businessman all rolled into one. And that’s why he is such a powerful and influential motivational speaker. Based on my years of connecting with Coach Mendo and seeing how he inspires all age groups of people, this man definitely has a special gift in helping people to become more than they ever thought they could.
Coach Mendo gives you EVERYTHING he has to give. Each time I have the blessing of working with him, he leaves no doubt that he deeply cares about helping people reach their fullest potential. His energy and passion are inspiring and contagious - and each time I leave from his talks I feel challenged and full of hope. He is the king of acronyms and there is no doubt that he has personally tested and proved everything that he talks about. His speaking style and stories are always engaging and I'm always blessed by the messages he brings.
I have known Coach Mendo as a Coach, Clinician, and Educator for 16 years. I've heard him speak at numerous camps, clinics, community events and university functions. Without a doubt, he is the most passionate person I know when it comes to inspiring every person he comes into contact with to go all out in pursuing greatness in their life. He truly believes that each person can be great and has a unique and effective ability to communicate that message in ways that inspire people to overcome challenges and go for more.
I have watched Coach Mendo speak several times and he is a very energetic inspirational speaker. He made me think about ways I might be holding myself back. Thank you Coach
