Joy Holsinger, Gates of Hope
We so enjoyed having Chris come! His talk was right on point; he was extremely engaging with the audience and his testimony was so powerful. Several of the attendees I spoke with the next day said they could have kept listening and wish it was longer! I really appreciate him taking the time to come by earlier in the day to hear our hearts. We were all confident that he understood our vision, and we were so impressed with how genuine and authentic he is. I would have him back to speak and recommend him as a speaker in a heart beat. His genuine love for God combined with his ability to communicate his testimony are powerful and transforming!

Chris Broussard uses his voice and platform to help motivate and inspire others to reach their full potential by dedicating themselves to excellence and perseverance. His wisdom, knowledge and experience continues to be a source of strength and hope - especially for young people.

Chris Broussard’s presentation was a model in how to relate to middle-school students. WOS teachers said his appearance was one of the best in the seven camps, two after-school programs and three on-location events we’ve held in the past four years. He told his personal story, one of becoming a writer instead of a pro athlete that was an excellent example of dealing with reality when making career decisions. I’m certain his participation was an important moment in our kids’ lives, one they won’t soon forget.

James Brown, Emmy Award-winning Broadcaster
Chris Broussard's work ethic is second to none. The trust that people have in him is quite evident, and he is of the highest order when it comes to character and integrity.
Jeremy Treat, Associate Pastor, Reality Church
I knew Chris Broussard was a great basketball analyst, but he's an even better man and an incredible communicator. He's grounded in God's word and is using his abilities to reach out into God's world in order to address some of the toughest and most important cultural issues. I'm thankful for Chris' heart for the kingdom and how God has positioned him for His purposes.
Lorenzo Bill Dangler, President, (NJ) NAACP
Since I became President of the Greater Long Branch, New Jersey NAACP 12 years ago, we have had nationally-known keynote speakers ranging from Ambassador Andrew Young to Dr. Cornel West. However, none of them have ever brought a more inspiring message than Mr. Chris Broussard.
Pastor Brian Willingham
As a black man, pastor and police officer in one of America's most dangerous cities Flint, Michigan, I found Chris Broussard's message "Reconstructing the Black Male Image in America" a call to action for black men, the black church and the society at large to destroy the historical false negative stereotypes that have haunted black men since they arrived upon America's shores that we are somehow inherently dangerous, lazy and preoccupied with self gratification. Broussard challenges us instead to replace those stereotypes with the biblical reality that black men are readers and intellectuals, filled with wisdom with the capacity to love themselves, their families, their communities and God the way God prescribes in the bible.
Pastor Fred Price Jr.
Chris Broussard has an uncanny ability to reel you in with his life's testimony, which brings ministry to you and creates inspiration in you. He's an effective communicator not just in the world of sports but in any environment where an audience is present.
Rev. Joseph Calhoun
The message we received from Chris Broussard could not have been delivered any better if President Obama himself had given the keynote speech.
Those who follow Chris as a reporter and sideline analyst for the NBA on ESPN recognize his professional excellence. He is very good at what he does. But he is even more impressive on a personal level - as a man of character, commitment, enthusiasm, faith, integrity and passion.
Eugene Stewart, Director, (NJ) NAACP
Chris Broussard's presentation at the Greater Long Branch NAACP Freedom Fund Luncheon 2013 was complete FIRE, as he truly spoke truth to power! He laid out a Five-Point Plan for rebuilding our communities that provides a true blueprint for those who are serious about taking corrective action and reversing the misfortune prevailing in most urban communities today. We've received numerous requests for videos and transcripts of Chris's speech at the event. Chris is a true inspiration.
Jeff Kaufman, Boost Mobile
His deep understanding of both high school and professional athletes enables him to establish a relaxed and intimate conversation enjoyed by all.
Justice B. Hill, Ohio University
We had sky-high expectations when we invited Chris Broussard to the Ohio University campus last March to headline a program for students. None of us, however, expected Chris to far exceed our expectations.
Lincoln Parker, Urban Marketing Corporation of America
Chris Broussard was awesome. His ability to connect with the students and encourage them to contribute to the dialogue on multiculturalism, the social responsibility of the black athlete, and challenges facing American youth in a global economy was amazing to watch. His poise and easy-going approach made everyone feel comfortable even when the debate heated up. His command of the subject along with his ability to summarize comments and keep the dialogue on track enabled us to provide our audience with a truly enriching experience.
Pastor Randy Garcia
Chris Broussard's voice goes beyond sports talk. His personal testimony and straight-forward, Christ-centered message reaches both the believers and non-believers. I love the way he connects so well with people of different cultures and races.
