"To date (March 2014), the Association of Transformational Leaders has invited nearly a hundred different presenters to speak at our meetings. In all that time, only 4 of them have received a spontaneous, unanimous invitation to join our group as a result of who they are, what they do, and the message they delivered. Sam Polk is one of those four. He blew us away with his authenticity, his candor, his amazing life story, and his bold vision for being of service. If you're looking for a speaker who delivers -- without unneeded sparkle or flash or hype -- an inspiring message by relating to what's true for all of us, invite Sam."
Brennan Smith, Executive Board Chair Association of Transformational Leaders, Southern California
“Not to be missed! Sam Polk is an excellent, compelling speaker who moves seamlessly from recounting his own journey that led him to found Groceryships, to the larger story about the Program itself. He is candid and pulls no punches about himself or the many challenges that face efforts like his and others dedicated to helping others improve their nutrition and health.”
David Lawrence Former Chairman and CEO Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc. and Kaiser Foundation Hospitals
"Sam moved an audience full of accomplished speakers (as well as the celebrity panelists) to tears and received a standing ovation…There is a deep sense of reflection and thoughtfulness in Sam’s words that make him one of the best speakers I have had the privilege to hear.”
