FCA was wonderful this Thursday morning. We have many youth pastors and dynamic speakers from all our churches to come and speak to our FCA. More students came to me and shared how much they enjoyed your message and presentation than ever. Many were encouraged because you made them feel like they are “worth” so much! If nothing else, this lifted their spirits as teens. Sometimes, as parents, we tell our kids this, but sometimes when someone else says the same thing to them, they listen more. I think that is how many of our students felt this Thursday morning. You were there to verify and help them feel and understand this. They will take this message with them for many years.

You are a wonderful speaker and kept the students engaged and involved. Their attention was always on you and your message.

As to your presentation yesterday, I was so very impressed with how you engaged the youth! Their participation was much more than what I expected. I really appreciated the way you incorporated into your speech, the need to preserve one’s integrity; and to be honest and responsible in all your actions. Hearing the teens responses as you questioned them definitely showed that they were not just there in the body but in the mind also!

Thank you so much for finding a place on your busy schedule for our group! I sincerely hope we can work together again in the near future as we both endeavor to impact the lives of youth!

Karen Neff, Youth Development Coordinator, District 2 Public Health
I would like to say how much we appreciated Bo Hairston for coming out to King’s Highway Worship Center on our Youth Night called “Friday Night Fire”. We had an awesome turn out and the encouragement that Bo left on our youth was awesome. Two days later, they are still talking about it. Bo, you have impacted our lives in many ways. May God Bless you and The Hairston Company. It’s great to have you in the body of Christ. God Bless you Brother.
Teresa Strickland, King’s Highway Worship Center
I am not just saying this, but that was probably the best “Men of the Mountain” meeting we have ever had. I thought you touched on all the “important” stuff. I like when people are prepared and that was evident. Please understand you will be coming back every year from now on!
Robert Park, Wauka Mountain Multiple Intelligences Academy
I recently had a training class with over 100 of Georgia’s largest employers. I invited Bo to talk about drugs and alcohol in the workplace. They have heard it before. Drugs don’t work. But Bo’s inspiration, style, and life examples made a huge impact on the group. If you want someone to stir up your event or impact your employees, Bo is the man for the job!
Steve Heinen, President, Risk Management Inc.
It is with distinct honor and my pleasure to say I have witnessed firsthand the impact Bo has on the youth and the programs. We’ve had the privilege of Bo speaking to the students in our residential recovery program on numerous occasions. Each time, our young men come away inspired and challenged to be their best. One remarkable characteristic of The Hairston Company is the ability to truly listen first – then respond. Bo listens, then coaches straight from the head and the heart.

Mr. Hairston was an excellent choice for a guest speaker!!! Mr. Hairston conducted a training for Student leaders at Brenau. He did an wonderful job. The participants were engaged in the lecture and came away with a wealth of knowledge! We plan to use his services again!!!
Valerie Walston, Dean of Retention , Brenau University, Gainesville GA.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Hairston on a business level for over thirteen years, first as a Chief Probation Officer in Hall County Georgia and most recently as a Motivational Speaker. Throughout our relationship, he has been an inspiration to both myself and the clients he has served. There is no doubt that he has changed the lives he has come in contact with. Mr. Hairston is one that would go beyond the call of his duties to help those in need. His faith and passion as Motivational Speaker will no doubt be life changing for so many.
Linda Wagner, Absolute Treatment Service - Gainesville, Georgia
In my experience in listening to Mr. Hairston speak, I am certain that his words and commitment have an incredible impact on those who listen. In hearing his story of his past and considering how people’s circumstances are a constant barrier to their full self-expression and fulfillment on what matters to them, students are able to come away from listening to Mr. Hairston with a brighter look on their future and the knowledge that they truly can have what it is that they want for their lives.
Derrick Caldwell, Hall County Boys and Girl Club - Gainesville, Georgia
I have known Bo Hairston for many years. Bo is a fine Christian man with a great sense of humor. He also has a true heart for helping people of all ages find the right path to reach their full potential and happiness in life. Bo will give everything he has to help you. A person with his sincerity and character is hard to find these days.
Phil Koch, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon Gainesville, GA
I wanted to tell you that we were so very honored to have you speak at our client seminar this year. Your message and testimony, was very moving. In fact, one of the lady’s in attendance said to me, Bo really gave me inspiration that what I am doing for the Abba House does mean something. She was a little down about things that day and she is very involved with Abba House, so I told her- always keep doing what you’re doing because there may be one person in a crowd that will hear you and be better because of it. Again, thank you so very much!
Tricia Lewis, CWCP, Sr. Vice President, Claims Manager Claims Department - Atlanta
Bo personifies positivity. I have know him along time and he has not changed. He is and always will be a person who sees only solutions not problems. He is a though leader, motivator and a person you will call friend once you meet him.
I first met him in 1993 while attending North Georgia College and recognized the magic. There is something about him. Something you both see and feel when you first meet him. He has a unique balance few possess and it affords him the ability to speak to you in a way that when he’s finished you feel better about your self and happy you met him.

This is a person who truly is living the dream and wants to share what he knows to help you and yours.

If your organization, group, school, team or family need recalibration, realignment or re-tooling, host a function and book Bo to speak – I promise you will be glad you did.

It is an honor for me to write this letter of recommendation for Bo Hairston. This past spring, we had the opportunity of bringing Bo to Wauka Mountain to speak to our entire student body. Bo’s energy and life experiences kept our children engaged. Bo delivered a message of how making choices, good and bad can change your life. You will fully realize when he is done speaking that the presentation was genuine and from his heart.

It is with only the highest regards that I recommend Bo for any speaking engagement, and I wish him only the very best!

Jennifer Deaton, Wauka Mountain Multiple Intelligences Academy
Bo Hairston served as a probation office here in Hall County before he embarked on his public speaking career. Bo was a great probation officer, but I never dreamed he would be such a motivational speaker. Recently Bo served as the keynote speaker for a Hall County Drug Court Graduation.

I have heard many speakers in many different arenas. However, I have to say Bo is one of the best. The content and delivery of his message was uplifting and inspiring. Bo spoke about personal responsibility, grace, and working towards a better future. Bo’s style of delivery is part southern Baptist revival, part football coach motivation, and part comrade in the struggle. He captivated the audience and left a lasting impression.

Bo is a great motivator and speaker. He speaks directly to young people and people who are looking for a better way.

Judge Jason J. Deal, Judge, Dawson and Hall Counties Superior Courts of the Northeastern Judicial Circuit
Mr. Hairston recently provided training for us at our annual supervisors training workshop at Lake Oconee. He spent eight hours of training eighteen of our supervisors on the topics of team building, employee motivational techniques, self evaluations, and building relationships.

During his training he was very knowledgeable of the topic material and did an excellent job of presenting it so that the supervisors could relate and understand. He provided several topic videos, visual aides, and helpful materials during his presentations. I would highly recommend him to any company that is considering using him or his company for training. We will certainly be using him again for future training workshops.

I have known Mr. Hairston for over fourteen years and have always found him to be efficient, dependable, ethical, and intelligent in his responsibilities and decisions. I sincerely believe that any company using his training services will be rewarded with work well done.
