Synthia SAINT JAMES  -  Partial List of Keynote Reviews

 

"Synthia SAINT JAMES always approaches art and audiences with something positive. A superstar, she exhibits authentic sensitivity and stirring imagination

SAINT JAMES not only encourages participation—she prefers it. What she canvases in a crowd is always down-to-earth, fascinating, joyously conversational, and richly historical en route to putting everyone at ease. SAINT JAMES is a sister and friend full of verve; she’s gutsy and soulful, witty and meaningful. She answers questions as if it’s the first time responding to such an inquiry. She made us feel at home, as if we had traveled the diverse journeys with her and been equally important in her enjoyment of each and every experience. Nobody imagines life, or visualizes all of its grand possibilities, better than her. No wonder the arts trumpet her genius."

 

Sisters & Friends, Bloomington-Normal, IL

Glenda Masingale Manson - President, 2010

 

"Your keynote speech was just what the audience needed at the end of a long, though fruitful, day. You had such an upbeat delivery, and your slides added so much. Many people have spoken to us to say how much they appreciated your remarks. Your singleness-of-purpose was what impressed me so much. You devoted yourself to painting even during the years when there was very little public recognition. That was very inspiring to many people in the audience."

 

Sheryl O'Sullivan, THE UNIVERSITY OF REDLANDS

 

"I have heard Synthia SAINT JAMES address audiences both large and small. I remember her heartfelt address during Prototypes annual fundraising dinner at the Academy of Motion Pictures. I also recall her stirring keynote presentation to the Black Women's Forum at the Hyatt Regency Los Angeles. Modest and proud, sincere and strong, hardworking and light-hearted, warm and witty, audiences love her! She is the consummate professional."

 

Nike Irvin, President, THE RIORDAN FOUNDATION

 

"When thinking of hiring a speaker there are myriads of notable individuals from which to choose. When we chose Synthia SAINT JAMES we couldn't have known, then, how pleased we would be. Ms. SAINT JAMES speaks from a very relaxed and quite refreshing perspective. She draws her audience in and makes them feel as if they have all been long time friends. Her vast experiences and phenomenal successes were terrific material too, from which to share. She is a warm and determined inspiration."

 

Valerie J. McCarty, Marketing Promotions, NEUTROGENA

 

"You were the perfect choice! The audience was very impressed by the video presentation and slides of your stunning work. They appreciated your intimate style and your way of welcoming audience questions. Everyone left feeling uplifted by the experience. Your generosity of time and spirit are truly commendable. On a personal note, I want to tell you what a pleasure it has been to work with you from start to finish. How refreshing to work with such a professional, organized, and most importantly kind person!

 

Amina Sanchez, Associate Director, SKIRBALL CULTURAL CENTER

 

"Though petite in stature, Synthia SAINT JAMES has proven to be an Amazon in confidence, talent, and creativity. However, the audience that witnessed Ms. SAINT JAMES as keynote speaker for our inaugural event, found her to be genuine and real!

Synthia, who authored a book entitled "Girlfriends", graciously agreed to manipulate her fully booked itinerary to attend our "Phenomenal Phemales-Women of Excellence" Girlfriends Retreat, and as one of our participants stated - "She simply blew us away".

Never before had I, or many of our guests, attended an event where the keynote speaker comfortably drew the audience in - not speaking at them, but allowing a "participation" style that allowed the audience to ask her questions about what inspired and caused her to produce such profound artwork that is uniquely Synthia SAINT JAMES.

 

Evelyn V. Stevenson, Founder & Visionary, PHENOMENAL PHEMALES
