We are all about the results

The Keith A. Somers International Foundation receives beautiful, touching letters from people who have changed their lives.
Here are a few who asked us to publish their thoughts and a touching award from Bowman High School.

I have absolutely nothing but positive feedback about Keith; he is gracious, flexible and professional. He is amazing and touches people profoundly. All are moved by his words and message when he speaks.

He is able to share his compelling story while incorporating humor, emotion, and seriousness throughout. He is a truly phenomenal speaker with an inspirational story and I cannot recommend him enough as a keynote speaker for any occasion.

Cameron Benson, General Manager, Watt Companies

I heard Keith Somers share his story and in his testimony. I found the truth about who I am and the inspiration of hope. I found myself grateful to share Keith's story without having to live the circumstances of Keith's life...

Mr. Somer's message is impactful as he bears his soul and his journey of deep reflection and the resulting spiritual wisdom he has gained through his life experiences. He is an eloquent speaker and truly has a God given passion to connect and serve those like myself that have been afflicted with the disease of alcoholism, hopelessness, and misdirection. My children and I will always be grateful for the gift of Keith Somers in our lives!

Corrina Vaughn

It was very impacting to have our students listen to such a strong and powerful message about making better choices and the warning signs that we get along the way. I really appreciate him coming out and giving a valuable lesson to our students.

Eran Zeevi, Assistant Principlal, Bowman High School

Keith Somers has a powerful story and he shares it without hesitiation in his mission to help others. It is remarkable. It is transferrable. It is powerful. It is moving. His struggle teaches others and touches others in a way that no other story nor storyteller's does. He is magnetic. He is a catalyst for personal change. It is palpable and powerful.
