“Laughter, encouragement, transparency and truth–now that is a combination. Todd Wilson is a genuinely funny guy who loves encouraging people with truth and transparency. Todd shares his life openly and honestly and in such a disarming manner that men and women drop their guard and readily receive the truth contained in his message. I would fully endorse Todd as a speaker for your upcoming event.” – Brian Doyle, President, Iron Sharpens Iron Conferences
“Todd Wilson is simply amazing. He needs a cape, as he is a superhero speaking truth to our families. He brings fun and laughter to a poignant message for today’s fathers and their families. He is loved and sought after not only in the homeschool community, but in the real-life community.
People want to hear truth from real people. I have seen numerous speaker requests for the many years I directed events for a very large organization. Todd was hands-down our number one requested speaker each year. He delivers a message of hope and laughter with life application action steps. He is real, and yet vulnerable. He lets his audience see his struggles within his own family, and seeks to share the hope of the Savior that can make the biggest changes in our families.
Todd is great to work with as a speaker. He communicates easily and effectively. He has a true ministry to serve.” – Alice Pauquette, Former Event Coordinator, FPEA (15,000 person event)
"Guest responses to Todd Wilson as a speaker at Forest Springs, whether for a marriage retreat or a family camp, have ranged from ‘awesome humor, realness and honesty’ to ‘good encouragement to be real’. We have loved and appreciated Todd's humor and principle-based teaching. What a blessing to have speakers like Todd who are willing to share so honestly from the heart and challenge us to be the fathers and husbands God calls us to be." – Pat Petkau, Executive Director, Forest Springs
"Engaging, personable, and funny. The guests at Sandy Cove's family camp raved about Todd. On a personal level, my wife and I enjoyed those few private moments with Todd and Debbie because of their down-to-earth spirit and crazy fun story-telling." – Mark P. Fisher, Former President, Sandy Cove
“Our family has known Todd Wilson and his family for well over ten years now, first encountering him as a presenter ‘on the conference trail’ back in the early 2000’s. He was instantly one of our best-sellers at our booth where we produce CDs and MP3s of workshops for attendees to purchase. This is a coveted position for many presenters, as our booth is a very excellent barometer for gauging how a presenter is being received by the attendees. If attendees are ‘ho hum’ about a presenter, they won't buy the CDs. However, when a presenter is well-liked and well-received, that presenter’s CDs are in huge demand. And Todd's sessions are ALWAYS in the highest demand of any presenter at our booth. This is clearly indicative of someone who has connected with the attendees, and is ministering to them on several levels.
We consider Todd and his family good friends, and I also rely on him for advice on a personal level as he offers words of encouragement to me as a dad and husband that I need to hear. I can only recommend Todd in the highest way to any conference organizer looking to put together the BEST speaker lineup possible, as his love for his family for the Lord Jesus Christ is evident in all he does and says.” – Mark Reinhardt, Rhino Technologies (conference recording specialist)
