Leif did an outstanding job for our women’s health day at Magruder Hospital! I’ve never had a speaker ask me before the event what our goal and desired outcome was for the event! He really wanted to make sure we got what we wanted out of his time with us, and his content was impactful and entertaining

Rachel Fall | Community Outreach and Development Manager, Magruder Hospital

Leif, you gave us just what we were looking for, and more! I couldn’t be happier. Your keynote really helped pull the day’s events together, and I even noticed employees using concepts you spoke about in our meetings the following week!

Sandra Smith | Training and Development Manager, Denver Public Library

I was in attendance at your seminar, and I wanted to say thank you for making the weekend so valuable. One of the best seminars I’ve had the pleasure of attending! It also provided practical information and how-to advice, job well done!

Melanie Shobe-Wierwille | Spencerville, OH

Thank you for presenting at our Competitive Player Development Conference. Your presentation was very well received and your practical approach to sport psychology was exactly what the group was looking for to enhance their own capabilities.

Fred B. Viancos | Director of Professional Development, United States Professional Tennis Association, Inc.

Dr. Leif Smith offered to present his workshop on Building a Thriving Sport Psychology Practice at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. Once the announcement was sent out, there was a flood of inquiry about this topic. Students, alumni and faculty attended Leif’s presentation, and I have only heard positive comments. Workshop attendees were impressed with his experience and expertise in this area. They can’t wait to invite him back for a part two!

Dr. Leif Smith recently addressed the Annual General Meeting of the Midwest Rugby Referees Society…and presented a multi-faceted approach to personal, professional, and game management techniques for overall individual improvement. As the presenter of the last topic of the day and perceived to be a “filler” topic, Dr. Smith emerged to be the keynote speaker of the day. It is indeed rare, especially at our meetings to have the membership rave about the benefits of any of our speakers. Not only would I recommend Dr. Leif Smith, I plan on utilizing his services in the future…

Doug Kendall | Chairman Ohio Rugby Referees Society, Member Midwest Rugby Referees Society, Member USA Rugby Referees Assoc.

Leif Smith’s recent seminar was very informative and enjoyed by all. I was very impressed how he was able to incorporate our wellness needs within his program. He has given our employees a new outlook on life and has encouraged them to be more proactive in their wellness needs. We sincerely enjoyed his time and look forward to building a strong relationship with him in the future.
