Spirited Speaker Testimonials

“Infectious, commanding, comforting, and powerful are the adjectives that come to mind to describe my experience with Robin “The Voice.” I had the pleasure of having Robin Emcee my conference which was hosted at a very turbulent time in our society. It was the week after the 2016 election, and I was torn between canceling the event in NYC or postponing for a later date. The climate of the city was thick and heavy. I was most sure people weren’t in the mood to be inspired and encouraged.

Robin affirmed me to continue the course as planned and she came through in a major way. Despite all the protests on 5th Avenue that deterred guests, trains, cabs we all arrived at a central place, and Robin delivered.
She organically shifted the mood with her resounding voice. She spoke a message of inspiration and hope that leveled the room. From there we were geared to resume Business As Usual. Robin Devonish is a speaker, a leader; she is the VOICE I look forward to hiring for future events.”

I had the pleasure of meeting Robin Devonish at Lucinda Cross’ Dream Big Vision Board workshop in January 2016. I created an idea and expectations on what I would receive at this seminar, however, my expectations were exceeded by far. Robin brought life into the room and kept the entire audience engaged from the beginning to the end. She was real, funny, inviting and encouraging. I typically sit back and observe when I am in a large group, but her presence and energy had me excited to participate wholeheartedly.

As I was planning my first fundraising event, I thought to myself, who can I call on to entertain my guest, control the flow, ensure a great time and an awesome event. I called Robin right away, hoping she would be available to emcee and knowing that she would be the icing on the cake for my “dream big” event. I hosted my first fundraiser for Friend Village, a group home for developmentally disabled adults and Robin was the emcee extraordinaire. It was indeed an awesome event. I received calls and text messages from the majority of my guest the next day letting me know they had a phenomenal time.

Robin required minimal direction, I provided my vision and basic instructions, and she took care of everything else. The day was incredibly overwhelming for me as you can only imagine, having her there took the pressure off and gave me an opportunity to breathe and greet the attendees. My guests got up out of their seats, mixed and mingled with smiles, took photos together while giving generous donations for a great cause. Robin fostered an environment which allowed people to relax, participate and enjoy themselves while keeping my mission and purpose in full focus.

I appreciated her presence; she truly made an impact and made all the difference.

I have always admired her spiritual and creative whit to observe the audience while engaging them to participate. She is truly the spirited speaker and emcee. I’ve had the pleasure of attending a few events where she Robin was the emcee. It seemed to me that she has mastered the art of emceeing. Robin knows just the right tone to use and allow the spirit of God to lead her. It didn’t matter if it was a large audience or an intimate setting, she always has the right antidote to make things run smooth.

It’s because of those observations I made previously; I didn’t hesitate to book her for Eloquent Essentials Youth Scholarship Program (EEYSP) retreat - A Noble Retreat For Generational Wealth. I thank Robin for being available and adding her talents to my event. I honestly felt at ease knowing she was there and able to help speakers facilitate workshops, group gatherings and keep the attendees focused on the purpose of the retreat. The feedback from the participants was excellent. I look forward to partnering with you shortly for another one of my events.

I highly recommend Robin to anyone hosting an event. I trust they will agree that she is a valuable asset. May God continue to be the engine to her as she shares her gifts and talents. I trust that as her cup runs over, many will continue to be blessed through her.
