Rennie, I just wanted to share with you that you were a huge hit with our group.  They loved you! They have finished the evaluation summary and you and Jeff Manley with The Rock Ranch who was our opening speaker received some of the highest marks ever.  One committee member said they had served on many planning committees for conferences and had never seen that many perfect scores for speakers.  We are all confident that you will get some speaking engagements from contacts you made at our conference.   Thanks again for an outstanding job.  We will have you a testimonial pretty soon.

Also the committee wanted to ask for your permission to share your presentation with the group. After each conference they share the conference presentations with our members only.  The presentations are posted to an internal website, that is password-protected, for members only with instructions that reprints or distribution is prohibited.

Thanks again for a job well done!

“Rennie Curran has been one of the greatest speakers I have ever had the pleasure to work with and listen to.  He uses his passion for not just football but for God and provides a great example of what a humble servant should be.  God has truly blessed Rennie on and off the field and Rennie is sure to use every bit of that talent.  We had a HUGE turnout for our event and I can’t tell you how many people have called to let me know how much Rennie has impacted them and how great of a job he did.  This man is a great Player, Author, Speaker and Leader.  I highly recommend Rennie Curran for any kind of speaking engagement you might have. “

Rennie’s positive, energetic messaging is fresh and resonates with audiences. He is able to make old-fashioned hard work, dedication, and persistence sound relevant to the “iY generation”! His talks are popular with our students and his book offers a terrific opportunity for us to keep his message active for an extended period!

We would like to thank Rennie Curran for taking the time to come and speak at the Cobb Leadership – Sports & Entertainment Program. He was such an inspiring and genuine person. The youth could really relate to the things he shared and I heard several of them discussing specific leadership topics he covered. We appreciate him sharing his book, “Free Agent”, with us as well. It is a great read.

We hope that he can speak at our program again next year. Good luck in your journey as a “Free Agent” and I wish you the best Rennie!

Mr. Rennie Curran was a dynamic keynote speaker for Chapel Hill Middle School’s Black History Month (BHM) assembly. Not only did he engage and energize our middle schoolers; he received a standing ovation and connected with them on their level. He delivered an inspiring keynote address with a powerful message. He reminded our students to recognize their gifts and the importance of hard work. His words were incredibly meaningful and hit home for several of our students.

Dear Mr. Rennie Curran,

It is with heartfelt gratitude that the Office of Institutional Diversity wishes to thank you. We truly appreciate your presence and your support to the Georgia African American Male Experience Weekend visitation program (GAAME) that was held on April 14-15, 2017. Thank you for your thoughtful message; your stories of resilience and humbleness motivated positively the students and the audience.    

Your contribution was essential to the success of this program and helped to encourage African American males to commit to UGA. We are very pleased to inform you that 88% of the students committed to our institution this year.

We appreciate your enthusiasm and passion as you shared essential information about the University of Georgia. The students felt empowered as you highlighted their achievements and emphasized how students from all backgrounds are welcomed and embraced at UGA.

The goal of GAAME Weekend is to bring the African American Males to campus for a taste of life as a Bulldog, and therefore encouraging their enrollment to UGA as well as answering any questions about the university. We aim to ensure that the students and parents are making an educated final college enrollment decision. 

Again, thank you for your participation. We appreciate your ongoing support and look forward to seeing you next year.

Rennie is a remarkable leader who does everything in his power to actually practice what he preaches! I am grateful to know him as a colleague and friend. He is one of the most inspiring individuals I have ever met!

I wanted to send you a quick thank you email and let you know how much I appreciated your presence yesterday. First of all, I had faith that you were going to be a great presenter, but I was not expecting you to impact our audience the way you did. You took it to the next level and blew us all away. It meant so much that you were able to relate to our industry and transfer your skills off the field with each member in the room. The dedication and research you put into this program stood out and we were so impressed with your knowledge. 

In all honesty, you are my favorite speaker that I’ve booked to date and I cannot wait to recommend you to my colleagues in the industry. Not only was your presentation hilarious, but you were able to leave us feeling inspired to be our best in our careers and personal lives. I am so thankful you were able to join us yesterday and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit with us and join our MPI family for a few hours. You are an absolute rock star and a very talented individual!!! 

Please let me know if there is anything I can ever do for you in the future. I’d be more than happy to partner with you again and provide a recommendation if you ever need me. 

Thank you again, Rennie, and all the best on your future speaking engagements!!

Rennie Curran is a warm and engaging speaker with an outstanding message about attitude and overcoming adversity with real insights into applying those skills to everyday life.  Rennie shared with us how his attitude led him to achieve success on the football field and in his life. He researched his audience and tailored the message to meet our specific needs.  You don’t have to love football to connect with Rennie and his message.  I highly recommend Rennie as a speaker!

“Our meeting with Rennie was so inspirational as he coached us as another human who goes through challenges and fights for growth to make the best of time that he has been given. He led some wonderful team-building exercises that encouraged trust and vulnerability amongst our group. Couldn’t recommend enough.”

During these times when we are all faced with challenges, Rennie’s story was so inspiring. It’s easy to be motivated by someone with such a positive/optimistic outlook on life. When faced with challenges, he persevered. When he got knocked down, he used it as motivation to find success. After hearing his experiences and how he handled them in order to get where he is today, I feel empowered to find the positives in my life (both at home and at work) to make a difference and to motivate others to follow in the same direction!

I thoroughly enjoyed Rennie coming to speak to our eLuma Building Leaders meeting. His story and message was conveyed very well, and I learned skills I can utilize not only at work, but also in my personal life too. Thank you, Rennie!


Have a good weekend!

Rennie’s presentation was so inspiring and amazing! His message of perseverance, overcoming obstacles, and developing personal connections resonated with me on a personal level, as a mother of teenage daughters. (To get them to do what I want) 😀  I love the framework you laid out for the 4 C’s- certainly this will be helpful when developing my leadership skills! 

He is truly gifted in helping others! Thank you so much!!
