"I was privileged to see John Hindle’s keynote at the Toastmasters District 64 Fall Conference. It was a masterful example of a true professional at work. He told the story of his recent heart attack and how it changed his life. The room was hanging on his every word as he took us through the difficult journey he is experiencing and the changes in his life. Thank you John and congratulations on a job well done."
-Michael Bayer, Certified Professional Speaker

Meeting you was a definite plus for me, as your zest for life, enthusiasm and interest were obvious and real…….and contagious! I will recommend you as a speaker at the drop of a hat to all and any."Curtis Basso, MB Association of School Business Officials (2011)

"John Hindle cares. I have had the opportunity in over 35 years in the recreation/fitness/wellness industry to hire and listen to many dynamic keynote speakers. The measuring stick that is always used is impact. Did they get the job done? Was the desired end result evident in the audience? John  ensures that he hits the ball out of the park! I have never seen a pre-speaking information gathering process as thorough as John’s. He met with us, he attended sessions in the conference and got to know what was in the minds and hearts of our delegates. He asked us precision questions about our audience that allowed him to connect with them in an extraordinarily meaningful way. When it came time to deliver the Keynote, John was able to look into the eyes of the audience and know who he was speaking to. He knew their struggles and opportunities and crafted his speech based on what we needed them to hear to enhance their profession. He connected, he inspired, we laughed, we thought, we will march forward in a new way. Thanks John for caring enough about us to understand us and take us to the next level." — Gary Thompson DCR, BRS, MA, Director of Active Living, Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management, University of Manitoba
