Testimonials

“Nathan Ogden came and spoke to our Construction Team and his message was spot on. He did an awesome job of relating his own stories with how our team can improve their daily life through standard practices and checklists. Nathan is personable, down to earth, and a great communicator!”

“Nathan’s life experiences and his perspective on them will give anyone a renewed sense of possibility and hope. Armed with these, action is an inevitable next step! I can only begin to describe how powerful we found his delivery, message, and impact! I don’t believe there was a dry eye in the room during the standing ovation at the conclusion of Nathan’s message. More importantly, dozens of listeners shared with me how inspired they were to take action and grow in their businesses as well as in their personal lives. Nathan will be heartily welcomed back to speak again! We will continue to recommend him as a phenomenal and impactful speaker!”

“Nathan Ogden is engaging and entertaining. One minute he was tugging at my heart strings, the next he had me rolling on the floor. He captivated the whole room telling his story and teaching the life lessons that have carried him through his struggles. Nathan Ogden may be a man in a wheelchair . . . but he is showing the world how to stand a little taller.”

“Nathan Ogden recently spoke at our annual national conference. We had every age present, from little children to grandparents. He captured the attention of everyone, old and young. We experienced every range of emotion…if we weren’t in tears, we were rolling with laughter. He was a booming success. His personal story is not only heart breaking, but very motivational. He makes you want to be a better person. Some of our folks are still talking about his message.

Our BeeHive family would definitely recommend Nathan as a public speaker…for any age group. We all fell in love with him….”

My leadership staff has been unified with an enthusiasm that could come no other way. He is truly awe inspiring and moving in his candor with a unique style of humor blended with the realization of life like I have never experienced before. We will have him back on an ongoing basis.”

“Nathan had an ability to capture everyone’s attention. We were engaged in his presentation. We laughed and we cried, but in the end we believed! What a remarkable speaker and remarkable man. He has left his mark on me and certainly those who were privileged enough to be there with me. It is not always easy to engage a generational crowd, but he did it successfully!”

Dana Peterson

“Nathan Ogden will not disappoint!  He is REAL and can connect with audiences large and small!

Some of the BOLD laws that Nathan embodies are:

-Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change.
-You teach people how to treat you.
-What you focus on expands.
-Things aren’t always as they appear.
-Change your thinking, change your world.

I could go on and on because Nathan has taught me SO much and helped me to realize that each of us live with considerable paralysis because of how we choose to think and view the world.”

“Nathan understands his audience and builds his presentation to engage and inspire audiences of all ages.  As he shares his story, Nathan reminds us that when challenges are embraced they can be turned into triumphs.”

Kelly Davies
Principal – Lewis and Clark Middle School

“Nathan Ogden spoke to approximately 700 high school age youth at a youth in excellence workshop.  Nathan has the ability to use his life experiences to quickly put the audience at ease so they can be motivated and inspired.  He left the youth better than he found them.  He was able to lift them to a higher plateau and armed with the tools needed to go forth with their own battles.

I highly recommend Nathan as a motivational speaker.  He is a ‘master teacher’ at the podium, and though he may bring them to laughter or tears, the audience will leave knowing they can accomplish anything.”

“Nathan was able to keep 200 youth enthralled for more than an hour!  He is smart, funny, hopeful, and he made a connection with each member of the audience.  He showed us the most important things in life, and how to cherish them.  I am so thankful he came and spoke to us.  This will have a lasting impact on all of us.”

“Nathan Ogden and his family have a first hand remarkable story of faith and inspiration.  They have faced and visit adversity everyday and overcome it.  Their courage to go on and engage in life is an inspiration to us all.  We had the opportunity to have Nathan present at a speaking engagement in Hawaii. His stories and lessons wowed us all showing his families love for each other, for life, and for going forward with faith in the future.  It was our honor to meet this remarkable family.”

“Nathan’s presentation was interactive, engaging, and relevant to all ages.   Adults and youth alike in the audience felt uplifted and inspired to live a better, more purposeful life.  I have seen Nathan speak on three separate occasions and each one was inspirational and moving.  He has the ability to motivate others with the courage to overcome any obstacle in life.”
