Dave Shoemaker, Board of Education Member | Paint Valley High School

I am on the Board of Education at Paint Valley High School in Ohio. Billy spoke at our commencement on May 22nd and did an amazing job. His message to our students (and parents and teachers as well) was inspirational, heartfelt and powerful. Our students gained knowledge that will most certainly benefit them as they step out into the “real world.” 

Thank you Billy!

Coach Jay Wright | Villanova University

Billy Hahn inspired, educated and emotionally touched our staff in his presentation. He’s down to earth, he hits you between the eyes and he connects. His presentation was valuable to me as a head coach as well as to our graduate assistants and everyone in between

Chris Beard, Head Coach – Men’s Basketball | Texas Tech University
Everyone in our program especially our players, enjoyed Coach Hahn’s visit to Lubbock. He helped our program in many ways. He keeps it real and gives honest thoughts and feedback. Bottom line, Coach Hahn’s visit to Lubbock impacted winning. I would recommend his service to any program in the country.
Chad T. Callen, Campus President | West Virginia Junior College

It was an absolute pleasure to have Mr. Billy Hahn as the keynote speaker of our 2017 graduation ceremony. Mr. Hahn’s commencement speech was meaningful, energizing and left a lasting impression on our graduates and their families. While we expected stories and lessons from his many years of coaching Division I basketball, we were caught by surprise with the invaluable life lessons that permeated his presentation. Further, we were overwhelmed with emotion as his unique style of delivery left audience members with chills, and at times, tears. We cannot thank Mr. Hahn enough for the memorable experience and would invite him back in a heartbeat!

Coach Todd May | Concord University

“…he spoke to my team back in September. It was great. He was very informative, and straight forward with my guys. I recommended him to all the coaches in the Mountain East and would recommend Billy to anyone!”

Coach Randy Edsall | University of Connecticut
Billy Hahn’s message about GDTBACYB is a must for Teams and Organizations. Straight from the HEART and REAL! His message is very powerful.
Steve Ferguson | Summmersville, WV

Coach Hahn spoke at the Summersville Area Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Banquet on Thursday, November 2, 2017 and he did an outstanding job.

The Summersville Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, which I was a member at the time, said it was the best Banquet they have had in over 20 years, both in attendance and positive comments.

Billy spoke with passion, stayed on point, added humor, and was very aware of the amount of time to speak and keep people’s interest.

I have known Coach Hahn for over 10 years can unequivocally attest to his enthusiasm, integrity, and ability. I’m certain that when you meet him you will be impressed by his personal charm. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Billy will add value to any endeavor or organization that asks him to speak.
