Mrs. Harris was an amazing speaker. The content she discussed was extremely relevant in today's world. She was fun, energetic, and engaging. I will definitely look to attend more of her seminars in the future.

We had the pleasure of having Toni Harris as our lead, key note speaker at our State NAIFA Conference in April of 2016. She brought down the house with her sense of humor and her message. The feedback we have received from the attendees has been fantastic...and she's a lot of fun too!!
Toni had so many awesome ideas that were both motivating, but still realistic in that you can take action on them right away - usually it is tough to balance that for speakers! Toni was entertaining to watch on stage, while keeping that 'feel' of a one-on-one conversation. Great job, Toni!
Toni was such a fantastic speaker! She quickly and easily got the entire audience engaged, excited, and responsive. Not only was she fun to watch, but everyone got some useful takeaways and tips that we could all immediately implement. Well done!
Response from Toni Harris - The Turnaround Queen®:
Thank you Jade. I appreciate the review.
I had the pleasure of hearing Toni present at the Business Advancement Conference on April 9th. Toni is dynamic speaker who knows her stuff! She's really funny, too. What more could you ask for!
Response from Toni Harris - The Turnaround Queen®:
Thank you so much for the wonderful review.
Awesome presentation. Good tools and tips presented in webinar. The only one that I didn't like was WIX.....for purely obvious business reasons. LOL. But great job!
Response from Toni Harris - The Turnaround Queen®:
Thanks Ron. Yes, I understand why Wix is not your favorite! LOL. Have an awesome day!
I recently had the opportunity to hear Toni Harris speak at a convention and she definitely delivers what she promises and so much more. Her energy, honesty, her style and her ability to engage people help to understand why she is called the "Turnaround Queen". She truly is an inspiration and a force to be reckoned with by all speakers. Go Toni!
A few days ago, Toni Harris spoke at our Professional Travel Agent's of North America conference on the Crown Princess cruise ship and clearly demonstrated why she is called the Turnaround Queen! Ms. Harris is a true example of making lemonade with the lemons that life can sometimes present to you. She is a very knowledgeable bundle of energy clearly able to adapt to her audience. She is an amazing motivational speaker who does her research to ensure she can communicate appropriately with her audience. She left our conference of travel agents asking for more of her time even after she spoke on two different days and that is not an easy task.
She was amazing! Very encouraging and with lots of energy! Its difficult to lose attention when someone like her is up and doing what she loves the most!
Toni Harris presented at the El Paso Women in Business conference and her presentation was perfect for our audience. Our audience is made up of women who are starting or expanding their business or women who are "climbing the corporate ladder." She was able to capture the audience attention immediately with both her captivating presence and excellent speaking skills. Her knowledge of the use of Constant Contact to meet the needs of both small businesses or in the corporate workplace is excellent! Her presentation style is delivered in a way that makes you want to listen to what she has to say. We would definitely want to invite her back to speak again! She is right on target with our audience!
I went to an amazing email marketing class, with Toni Harris as our Instructor.
She was simply the best Instructor I have experienced in a long time. She was energetic, informative, down to earth and so helpful. I will be able to use the information she inspired us with for years to come.
Thanks Toni! you're the best!!!
Toni came out to speak at a monthly meeting group that I co-chair called FENG (The Financial Executive's Networking Group), specifically the Katy / Sugar Land (Houston, TX area). Toni's presentation on stepping out, taking risks, and both business and personal networking was GREAT!! Highly recommended speaker!
Total package! From her head to her Awesome shoes! If you want drastic results, you must wear your fabulously drastic change-making shoes! Toni is a fireball with enough zeal for an army! Her content is on point!
The more indepth we went, the more surprised I was at what you brought to the table. I need to start utilizing my Social Media and blog more. I want to know more about fiverr, the plr store and more. It was useful information.
I attended her Social Media Marketing presentation sponsored by Houston Community Collage and it was very informative. She was direct and with lots of excellent advice.
This gorgeous lady electrified the room with so much information that I wished I could spend ALL day listening to her! I took a book home and my wife has already read her book and tells me: "you've gotta read it! She is awesome! She is Life Changing! Oh my God, she is dynamite...Where has she been all these years" and my wife does not like to read much! I hope that sums it all
Think of any well-known inspirational speaker. Zig Ziglar, Tony Robbins, Joel Osteen...they're awesome, but how many times did they have to turn their lives around? Are these people really getting constantly knocked down by life and then having to find the strength to get back up like so many of us "normal" folks have had to do? Toni Harris has! Time after time, with the cards stacked against her, she rose up from her circumstances out of sheer will power and determination. Toni shows us that we each have that same ability, that same choice to make. It's right here inside of us, and we all are capable of finding and using it. I don't think there is a human being on the face of this earth who could not benefit by recognizing that the life of Toni Harris is a shining example of what being an overcommer is all about!
Toni is a natural speaker! She has a great story, content and presence that will fill any engagement. I ALWAYS look forward to following content and tips from a proven entrepreneur and a person HAPPY in what they are doing each day.
Toni was very informative on the topic(s) of the seminar. Upbeat and kept the seminar moving along so the attendees did not drift off to somberland like so many other seminars :)
Toni showed my how to use this product to take my marketing to the next level!
Toni is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable in every aspect. Her presentation kept me engaged and wanting to learn more. I would recommend her 100% to anyone wanting a fantastic speaker!
Toni is full of great ideas. Having her share her journey is very inspirational. She is a must for any business owner looking for new ideas. Loved it!
This seminar was wonderful! I learned more than I expected as far as marketing, staying in touch with clients, how to get new contacts, the importance of keeping in touch with people for branding and more... I must say Toni Harris is exceptional in the way she delivers valuable information. I'm so glad I took the time to attend.
I met Toni in October at the 2014 Women In Financial Services (WIFS) annual convention in Orlando. As the CEO of NAIFA-Florida, I was there to represent my organization and learn more about the WIFS organization. But I also was there to seek out great speakers for my organization's events. It was there that I heard her speak. As you would expect, her presentation skills are excellent. Vibrant, funny, engaging, emotional and direct are just a few of the adjectives I'd use to describe her performance. But the real takeaway from her session is the absolute power of her message: you CAN go through incredible challenges and experiences in life and turn them into stories of success! Toni clearly shows you how to do it, and because she's lived through it herself she does it with a passion that truly comes from the heart. I was so impressed with her presentation that I have booked her to speak at the 2015 NAIFA-Florida annual conference!
Toni's presentation was informative AND inspiring. I expected to receive information about social media from the seminar, but the call to action was a fantastic bonus. Thanks Toni, for your testimony, inspiration and accountability.
I had the opportunity to hear Toni speak at my WIFS national conference. She was awesome! High energy, kept us engaged. Gave some great marketing tips! If you are looking for someone to help you market yourself she can do that.
I had the privilege of sponsoring a breakout session at the 2014 WIFS conference in Orlando. After researching all of the speakers, I chose Toni Harris. She did not disappoint. She engaged her audience with true compassion for who they are and what they are trying to accomplish in our industry. She gave a great, heart felt presentation, focusing on specifics that can help anyone take their career to the next level. Thanks Toni!!
Toni gave a terrific presentation to business professionals at our annual conference. Her delivery was so engaging that our audience lost all track of time. She is an extremely effective speaker, educator and motivator. Her path to success and sharing the "drastic steps" one has to take to become an accomplished professional in our business and personal lives was the highlight of her enlightening and stimulating presentation.
Ms. Harris didn't disappoint. She was articulate and exuberant. Her talk on 'From D.R.A.S.T.I.C. to Fantastic' was amazing. Her delivery was on point and kept us all involved. What she taught us in this presentation can be used not only at work, but also at home. She shared some of her life stories which moved everyone in the room. She invited the audience to share a few of their stories, which they gladly did. We've never had this kind of 'successful' interaction before Toni Harris!
If you're looking for a 'good' speaker, please bypass Ms. Harris. If you're look for a 'GREAT' speaker, someone who will keep your attention from beginning to end and teach you great lessons at the same time, then look for Toni Harris - The TurnAround Queen. You will not be disappointed.
Toni is an expert for engaging the audience. She breaks the "ice" by having everyone introduce themselves and tell a quick story about their business or why they are attending the workshop. Her ability to remember names and stories is uncanny.
How do I know people were engaged? Questions, lots of questions. After the presentation, the audience would not let her leave. Everyone wanted a one on one with Toni. The event host had to kick us out because we had overrun our time allotment.
We will ask Toni to come back to one of our workshops.
We have been sending out what we thought were effective newsletters with a >40% open rate, but after attending Toni's session I am now aiming for 45% open rate. The takeaways were very applicable to our newsletters and our business.
Thank you so much for coming to speak at Social Media Camp 2014 in Victoria and I hope I have the honour of hearing you speak again one day.
I recently had an opportunity to attend a speaking engagement for Toni Harris and the one word I would use to describe the style, personality, substance and delivery of Toni it would be "dynamic".
Toni challenged and encouraged the attendees to take the action steps necessary to achieve goals and to be accountable for the outcome and her approach was very inspiring, motivational and at times personal and transparent.
After obtaining a copy of her book at the event and subsequently reading through the pages, I have been moved to, as Toni would say, "Take drastic steps" to complete and publish my own book.
I truly enjoyed Toni's talk and it's much more than her open, welcoming and fun personalities. Toni packed her talk with useful, hands-on information that is essential to the current business climate. I left the meeting empowered and ready for what's next with my marketing efforts.
Toni Harris is the Turnaround Queen! She speaks with experience as she inspires and motivates her audience to take their own drastic steps in their business and personal lives.

Toni Harris made an energizing and informative session to 60 small business owners at the Cinco Ranch Library on 3/22/14. Her ability to engage the crowd, have fun while still getting the message across was phenomenal. We'll be asking Toni to speak for our organization again and again!
