Nick was a real surprise for me. Not being a diehard professional sports fan and knowing very little about the technical aspects of football, I came to my business organization dinner where Nick spoke as a sceptic. Nick did an excellent job of engaging the group with stories about family, integrity and success. He was able to weave sports and his career in Football into the presentation without it being the only focus. Nick has an unusual ability to command a venue and keep everyone interested. Nick has a great future as a motivator, mentor and Keynote Speaker

Nick Hardwick graciously accepted the invitation to speak at our annual Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR) Commercial Real Estate event. Without question, Nick was one of the best speakers we have had in the past 10 years. Most people who live in or close to San Diego are aware of Nick’s successful career in the NFL with the San Diego Chargers so I was excited to attend the event and listen to his speech. Within the first 2 minutes, he had the entire audience completely locked in, engaged and falling out of their seat with laughter. Throughout the balance of his speech, Nick’s message was the perfect blend of humorous stories and genuine takeaways absorbed from overcoming challenging obstacles during his career as a professional athlete. Nick is dynamic in an audience. If you want a speaker with enthusiasm, passion and the ability to engage your listeners, Nick can deliver.
