I am writing to share my experience of Keith Somers as a speaker. 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.

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!
I first heard Keith speak in a dark basement parking garage, full of men and women, during a meeting in Venice. His presence was strong before even uttering a word, demanding attention and a quiet audience as soon as he stood.
Once he began to speak, for me anyway, it was a powerful awakening of truth. My ears… entire being for that matter, took note of what he had to say, and how directly he shared his experience, strength, and ultimately gift of hope. So inspired by his delivery and message, I approached him afterwards, and then began a valued relationship. Keith has lived a life of massive challenge, and the lessons he has learned, make him such a rare human. He taught me a sense of gratitude I had overlooked, and helped strip away layers of self imposed drama. I consider myself so fortunate to have crossed paths with him, and to have heard his story.
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.
I met Keith through a mutual friend and, though his message has almost no connection to my experience, I found myself mesmerized by his life and by the way he reveals it. His has lived a cautionary tale that is cinema-worthy. His struggle teaches others and touches others in a way that no other story nor storyteller's does. I am very proud to be a part of this man's journey and helping him help others. He is magnetic. He is a catalyst for personal change. It is palpable and powerful.
