Feedback from my clients

In all my years of playing in the NFL and coaching thereafter, I have met very few men who have the courage and confidence that Aaron Golub possesses. When Aaron first came to train with me to prepare for his NFL Pro Day, my first impression was: ‘Here’s a very athletic football player who possess a strong work ethic, has mastered his skill, and operates through his training in a normal fashion.’ When he shared with me his legally blind status, and then allowed me to wear his goggles that replicate the very limited, blurred vision he has, I was shocked, and thoroughly impressed at all he has accomplished and continues to accomplish with a substantial vision challenge. I know whatever Aaron sets his mind on, he will accomplish! He has already and will continue to beat the odds.

We were fortunate to have Aaron address our entire school community. His message of resiliency, setting goals and establishing a plan to achieve one’s goals, and expressing to our students that the path to success is different for everyone resonated with our entire school community. Our students were engaged during Aaron’s presentation and the impact of his visit has been felt on campus since he left. Aaron was also kind enough to have lunch with our student leaders as well as our coaches. I would highly recommend Aaron to any school who is looking for a speaker who will connect with their school on so many levels.

~ Tim Joncas Director of Athletics, Westminster School

Aaron is an amazing speaker; our company and team greatly benefited from the guest speaking Q&A he did with us. Not only did he tell us his inspirational story, but he also provided great wisdom and insight to many questions we had on leadership, setting and achieving your goals and overcoming obstacles. We were super impressed and plan to have Aaron back next year to do more team activities with our company. I would recommend Aaron to any company looking for a speaker or consulting with regards to DE&I and leadership development.

~ Brad Jones Chief Operating Officer Urban Skin Rx

Aaron is an intense and driven motivational speaker. He did an excellent job presenting to our group. Relevant, honest, ambitious, and forward thinking. If your team is underperforming they need to hear Aaron’s message.

Thank you so much for speaking at our Charlottesville SHRM event. Your speech was the perfect way to end our conference on a high inspirational note.

He’s just a really strong minded, tough kid, and he’s really good at his craft. You take for granted what he accomplished, because he makes it all look so easy.

~ Steve Dasman Program Coordinator Waypoint Adventures

Aaron’s message to the SUNY Geneseo Cross Country team was both motivational and powerful. His presentation to the team via a Zoom meeting during the Covid- 19 pandemic could not have come at a better time with how to deal with and overcome adversity. His story is incredible and offered words to live by to set these young student-athletes on a path of success, no matter what stands in their way. If there is an opportunity to hear Aaron speak, jump on board!
