As a professor, with her coaching and strategy, she helped me recognize my own point of view so that I was able to tell my story and connect with people in the audience at the level I needed to speak on the Tedx stage.
Rosalyn coached me to use my own experience and rise to my own greatness. I became more productive in my own genre as I developed a higher level of creativity.
She inspires her clients with special techniques to help them reach their personal potential. Rosalyn individually customizes her techniques to mesh with her client’s business.
Hello Professor Kahn! My name is Zeahlot Lopez and I took your communication 101 class in 2006 at Antelope Valley Community College. I wanted to thank you. Because of you I was inspired to continue speaking publicly. As of 2015, I completed my masters degree for Marriage and Family Therapy and am a month away from received my professiona license to practice. I am also an active member of Toastmasters for Mental Health Professionals. Your class really helped me and grew my passion for public speaking.

I am grateful that everything that has happened this term has taught me that I can succeed, that I can do this. Before I started working wth you and doing other things to help me I was very worried that although product design was something I wanted to do it wasn’t something I could do and i’m very glad this term has turned out so positive.
COVER LETTER FOR A JOB APPLICATION
Thanks Rosalyn, for the most professional, heartfelt, and right to the point cover letter you helped me write for a job application. This was a true act of kindness. I have got the most amazing comments about it, and that is because of you. Thank you so much, and as you say, Gratitude beyond words.
Jacky Melikian – Insideout Meetings and Events (July 14, 2016)
I have been working with Rosalyn for almost three weeks now and she’s really helped me improve. For a long time I have had serious problems procrastinating and putting things off that were negatively affecting my life my life and causing me to fail my college classes. With Rosalyn’s help I’ve gotten a better handle on my life and have new ways of dealing with stress that help me not procrastinate.
“Rosalyn is an inspiring speech coach! She added sparkle and dimension to my speech that caused me to shine brightly in front of a 400 person audience. Her encouragement and suggestions brought me to a new level in public speaking.”
-Debbie Dickson, Founder & President of Smith Dickson
“Rosalyn and I first met in 2015 at TEDx event at South Hills High School. She worked very closely with the student leaders on our campus and hosted a moving and impactful speech the night of the event. Her words were both inspiring and powerful as she challenged our audience and student body. Rosalyn was a way of motivating those she surrounds and making a greater difference in the lives she touches.
I speak very highly of Rosalyn, not just because she came to South Hills High School to host our TEDx event but also because her words become actions. Shortly after the TEDx event Rosalyn asked to become more involved with our student body. She found out a student was in need of a lap top and she went through every channel she could to find a lap top that could be used by one of our students. It was an exhausting search yet she always found a way to keep the quest positive and her passion never ceased.
I am very grateful for the long lasting relationship that she has created between herself and South Hills and we look forward to working with her in the future.”
-Matthew J. LeDuc, Activities Director South Hills High School
“I want to thank you for providing a shorter version of your TED talk to my class. Very enlightening for me and the students. You’re a wonderful speaker and a dear colleague.”
“Thank you Roselyn for speaking at our Strategic Business Allianz luncheon. Our members definitely walked away with a few great ideas how to lower their stress levels at work and how Random Acts of Kindness can help each of us build our businesses. PS – your book, “Random Acts of Kindness is Changing the World is awesome”. I don’t know anyone who would not benefit from reading it.”
“I was scared to get a speech class because I had a different though. I love this class has I said because I feel comfortable and not that scared in front of the class. I am so sorry of what happen today in the 9:30 class, but the classmate didn’t realize that he had a professor that he could had learn how to be a better speaker. One thing I know that having a professor like you that offers the help and time to get a better grade in the class and how to improve in our speak is difficult to find. One as a student needs to appreciate those things that in life are difficult to find. I said these with all the truth.”
“We have often heard the expression, “History Repeats Itself.” We are all also well acquainted with the doctrine that Youth are the Future of America and society as a whole. In her masterful delivery, Rosalyn Kahn addresses the youth in a motivational talk and poignantly reminds them of the civil activists in history that paved the way for the civil rights and liberties that we enjoy in America and Society as a whole. Rosalyn paints the picture that the Youth in this country can impact the world in the same way as a “stone ripples throughout the pond.” She cites historical legends such as Rosa Parks and the great Australian Peter Norman as trendsetters in World History and urges the Youth to own their potential roles as leaders at home and abroad.”
– Eric Gerace
“I had the opportunity to hear Rosalyn speak at TEDx Walnut about Breaking Cultural Barriers. Right away, I knew that Rosalyn was a professional. She is a powerful storyteller. She speaks with passion, grace, and confidence. She isn’t afraid to use silence and emotion to hook the audience in. Rosalyn told the stories of three inspiring change agents in history and tied their stories together in one moving speech. Rosalyn is truly a captivating speaker.”
– Aileen Xu, TEDx Walnut 2016
“Your talk was my favorite of all the speeches”
– Camera Operator, from Mt. Sac Yesenia Romera
It was very invigorating and shed light onto the heroes of women’s suffrage and civil rights. The greatest benefit I learned from your speech was that speech giving is a very powerful medium in influencing others to do things. Your speech definitely inspired others to do things and create a difference in the world, starting from throwing their rock into a pool of water. Their ripples are influenced by you and your amazing speech!
– Nathan Wong
“You are a first class act. I knew that giving the task of selling tickets was in responsible hands when I called on you. I am glad that you are receiving some reward for your effort. I am greatly impressed with your abilities but then that is why you are a college professor right? Thank you for sharing your talent and lending your tall stately presence to the event. You looked terrific last night. It appeared you had a good time as did all. I am also greatly grateful for the opportunity to be involved with this venture and believe that it can build to an even higher plateau with so much potential.”

“We had an exciting night inviting 120 youths to a night of fun to be anchored by community speakers like you who talked about the importance of education in their lives. We thank you for taking the time to come and speak to our youths. While you spoke more about spiritual & character building themes than actual education, the youths really enjoyed hearing you speak.
The Board appreciated your time and look forward to working with you at some of our other programs and events helping less advantaged youths see that college is an attainable goal. I highly recommend you to other organizations that would benefit from your experience.”

“I shared that pain. Thank you for your speech it meant a lot.”
I was absolutely impressed by your presentation!!! I can feel your passion, and definitely understood why sympathy and empathy are so vital – I think they are integral to a solid character. I think you should share this presentation with more classes! I could tell you got their attention!!! These high school senior students will soon join the college scene, and every opportunity to help them become better thinkers with strong human sensibilities would help to improve their chances to succeed! Your talk certainly “woke” them up that morning! What a refreshing experience!
Making a gratitude list is such a worthy exercise! Many do not realize they are sooo tremendously blessed. It only takes a few minutes of focus, and a little guidance, a little prodding, to recognize these blessings – and this simple effort could change one’s attitude to a better, positive perspective.
Best of luck in all your endeavours!”

“After finding out about Rosalyn through an old friend I promptly contacted her, and she responded immediately. It was easy to talk to her, she is a great listener, and she gave her honest opinion that was clearly backed with great experience. She took time out of her busy day to meet with me, and was very insightful on our project. She gave advice that was priceless and helped us better understand what exactly our product was. A genius when it comes to the art of presentation, I am recommending her to anybody that needs help in this area. She clearly has an excellent talent on how to take any idea and make it brilliant. Even though with our recent course of direction at the organization we are unable to use Rosalyn’s services, we will cherish every moment she gave us.”

I am thankful that I did not quit.”Name omitted to protect privacy “I wanted to thank you for giving us students, at the Los Angeles School of Global Studies, the chance to take a college course.

I think most writers need to improve their speaking skills.”

“Rosalyn Kahn is a supreme motivational speaker, one who is not afraid to open up her world and share personal experiences exemplifying life’s lessons. Her perspective is that of a teacher, leading the audience to explore and discover the truths that resonate and inspire positive actions. I heard her talk, “Family Dynamics 1 of 7″ which highlighted her family’s struggles and how they overcame them. It emphasizes the importance of family and the bonding of relationships that last a lifetime. The talk stresses that family is forever, for always, no matter what. It is a message that is as applicable in the home as it is in the workplace. That it all begins with caring.”
