“In a field where they talk about diversity but then expect lockstep ideological unanimity, John talked about genuine diversity, based on respect and listening and he does it with humor as well as passion. If there were more people like John in the diversity education movement, there would be a lot fewer cynics where diversity is concerned.”

"Mr. Harris was an incredible speaker! It was great to have someone come in and tell us that we can succeed through God’s direction and love. He made his speech clear and simple, with comic relief and great points!"
"John got me to think deeper about what is really going to drive me to make it through. Not just the good, but the things that will not seem so good."
"Very good message! I've seen lots of motivational speakers and have also done a lot of keynote speeches and will definitely use some of his info and knowledge and what I learned from John in some of my next speeches and leadership workshops."

"Diversity: Finding Common Ground" was a huge success at Waubonsee Community College. The program, presented as part of our Diversity Chat Series, had a larger attendance than any other program in the series. John Leonard Harris is an excellent speaker. His method of delivery part comedian, part professor- was in perfect balance, holding an audience of 200+ students riveted for 1 ½ hours! He presented potentially difficult information/concepts in a simple manner, illustrated in turn by hilarious and dramatic stories. The hand-outs were excellent, following the presentation faithfully, reinforcing important points. As one of my students said about the hand-outs, "These are keepers."
