To Whom It May Concern,
As the co-founder and Chairman of H.O.H.T., and former Chairman of the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors, I have been a frequent speaker, presenter, and motivational speaker for over 20 years. So, I always look forward to experiencing other great speakers.
As a former collegiate football player and coach, both at the high school and college level, J.D. Haglan brings a sense of years of experience and accomplishment through his presence (he really does look the part). As he progresses in the presentation, he is easily at home in pointing to his flaws as well as his strengths in making important points. We are both Cancer survivors, which generally makes an audience sit up and listen, as we have skirted our own mortality.
J.D. recently presented our “Speaking Skills” seminar at the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce to applicants of our job bank. It was very well received!
If your goal is an impactful keynote speaker, I would encourage you to consider J.D. Haglan.

I wanted to write and thank you for sharing your journey with the Seniors and parents this evening. What an inspiration you are!!! My heart ached for the sickness and pain you have endured!
My son was given an award on awards night for “overcoming obstacles”…This award meant the world to me. As a Mother, I know the many obstacles he has overcome. These obstacles have not only strengthened him, but made him a very humble child of God!
Your journey has been full of obstacles, I’m sure. To hear you tell the teens to turn to God instead of away from God in times of trouble was PRICELESS! The guidance and direction you shared tonight will stick with these teens for a lifetime. Thank you Again!
May God Bless and keep you. May HE give you strength, and may you continue to share your story to encourage others!
