“I am so impressed with Rhonda Kinard of A Life Ignited! 

As a speaker for The Urban League of Philadelphia’s Empowerment Week 2018 event “Careers Empowered”, Rhonda was awesome! She was professional from the moment she agreed to participate in the engagement. She was detail oriented, had great preparation and follow through, arrived early and was accessible to audience members beyond her segment of the event. 

Most importantly, her presentation was flawless. Her role in the event was to get the group motivated and empowered. Rhonda was real, present, engaged with the audience and seemed to genuinely enjoy what she was doing and the coaching she was providing. I would highly recommend Rhonda for group engagements and personal coaching. Feel free to contact me personally for a more detailed reference. I can’t wait to work with Rhonda again! ”

[Professional Development seminar] was perhaps the most continually beneficial and motivating seminar enjoyed by our team. The graduate students were particularly impressed and appreciative of your ability to communicate difficult concepts easily as well as share a weighty and broad volume of professional experience and knowledge. – Rev. Dr. Malcolm T. Byrd, Retired Director City of Philadelphia Mayor’s Office Of Faith-Based Initiatives

Thank you so much, Mrs. Kinard, for the two workshops you have done. I have already started implementing the information I learned into my daily life and now I am equipped with the necessary skills to use if I become faced with any challenges in the workplace or normal life outside of work

Rhonda is an excellent motivational coach and speaker. She provides effective strategies to help clients combat the challenges that prevent them from living a full and happy life. I often refer to Rhonda as the “quiet storm” because she applies subtle techniques to help clients reach their goals.
