Frank gave a keynote at our annual Sales Kickoff and it was a blast. He brings great energy in the room with his FRESH message and stories. Highly recommend Frank for motivational keynote speeches. Thank you Frank and wish you the best! - Karan Yaramada, CEO and President, Jade Global, Inc
We would like to thank Mr. Frank Kitchen for being our Guest Speaker and his discussion on how we can all live FRESH (Focused, Resourceful, Enthusiastic, Strong, and Honest). In addition, Mr. Kitchen mentioned how as leaders we must leverage every member of our team’s special abilities and talents to create positive results not just for the team but our Warfighters, Units, and Nation. The Leadership Training focused on our Army’s most important asset “Our People”, with the discussion geared around Teamwork, Communication, Creating Positive Cultures, and Talent Management. It was a powerful opportunity to conduct our annual winter offsite training preparing our Resource Management (RM) Professionals (Finance/Comptrollers) for the excitement of the coming year in 2020.

"Frank introduced the group to the idea of Living F.R.E.S.H. – Focused, Resourceful, Enthusiastic, Strong, Honest. He had all of us laughing and taking notes on how to be better at our jobs. But the best part is that iGO continued the learning with a post-lunch, hands-on workshop. Frank had all of us out of our seats playing games to meet new people and gain insight into our personalities and work styles. It was not like any session I’d ever seen at one of these conferences and I made at least four new friends while laughing and learning. What a great idea to encourage networking while also learning some new interpersonal skills!"
-Votem Corporation, Attendees of the 2019 International Association of Government Officials (IGO) Winter Conference
"Frank visited Heritage Middle School on October 4, 2016 for a school-wide assembly. He shared his F.R.E.S.H. message with our students and made the presentation fun and engaging for our middle schoolers. The best part of the day was having Frank spend the rest of the day meeting with students informally in the lunchroom and attended some leadership sessions with a few. He provided a personal touch that our students really appreciated.
"Frank was an absolute delight to work with! He was easy to work with and one of the nicest speakers our department has ever brought to campus. I was impressed by our conversations as he was always professional but also easy going and friendly. He is truly a good person and is in sync with his mantra of FRESH living! He is a family man, friend, and motivator!"
Frank Kitchen was the Keynote Speaker for the 2017 UC Merced Leadership Conference. Start to finish it was a pleasure to work with Frank. He was engaged and excited to be a part of our conference and inspire our students to Think Big and Lead Fresh. Frank went above and beyond expectations from creating a pre-conference welcome video to talking with students all day and after the conference had concluded. His message was unique and relatable in his keynote and breakout sessions and students continue to talk about him close to a month later. I would strongly endorse his participation in any campus’s leadership events in the future.

"Hiring Frank Kitchen for our State Leadership Conference was one of the best decisions I've made in my role as the state advisor for Educators Rising Nebraska. Frank was very down to earth and he had the ability to not only entertain but get across the importance of a great attitude when making a plan for success! He made himself available to the state officer team the night before and helped in our preparation for the state conference. The day of the conference his message was motivational and tailored to the high school students attending. He also presented sessions for students and advisors and remained available to every student in attendance for Q and A. We were extremely pleased with his effort to reach members and his genuine caring spirit."
- Nancy Burkhart, Educators Rising Nebraska State Advisor
"Frank is a dynamic, engaging speaker that we felt very fortunate to have on our stage at the YEA! Tucson Commencement for Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Foundation Young Entrepreneurs Academy in May 2018. His keynote presentation ("Live Fresh") was rated in high favor by our audience of graduates, parents, educators and the small business community. The motivational focus on entrepreneurship truly resonated with our young business owners and many more in our audience of who were seeking for expert advice on building their own brands while furthering their personal development. In a very "fresh", energizing session, Frank offered personal experiences and gave our graduates clear tips and actionable suggestions on how to implement his recommended strategies. I highly recommend Frank for your next event!"
- Stephanie Bermudez, Young Entrepreneurs Association Tucson

Our staff left motivated and inspired and thoroughly enjoyed Frank’s presence. From our leadership at Children’s Clinics, we highly recommend Frank to anyone in need of a dynamic speaker. We will definitely consider him for future events. Five stars!"

- Stacy Householder , National Conference of State Legislatures
"Frank exudes enthusiasm and energy! He was the keynote presenter for our general session on opening night at our statewide conference and engaged the crowd immediately. His encouragement for us to “finish the race” set the stage for a great time of learning at the conference. Frank has a positive disposition and attendees were responsive to him. He led sessions for adults and students and fascinated both audiences. I highly recommend him for other keynote opportunities."
- Rachel Rutledge, South Carolina Department of Education, Office of Career and Technology Education
"Frank's enthusiasm is infectious and invigorating. Our local and state CTSO officers were on their feet and interacting like nothing I've seen before. Their excitement and passion through Frank resulted in numerous discussions and ideas to move their organizations forward to a new level. The local and state advisors were similarly inspired, and the State Department of Education and their CTE office thanked me for including Frank as a part of our leadership training opportunity.
Frank's interest in each student and adult who approached him individually was heartfelt, and he spent time with each attendee to share ideas and solutions for growth, leadership, and inspiration. His continued outreach after our event has been beneficial and appreciated."
- Steven M. Cook, Alaska CTE Conference Planner
"In April 2019 Frank was the keynote speaker at the Spring Conference for the Missouri Association of Public Purchasing. Frank lead three engaging and interactive session with our group of more than 80 members. Frank was in attendance for our entire event and quickly became one of us! I was very impressed that he attended many of our events to really get to know and network with our members. Frank’s sessions were unique where he didn’t stand and teach us, he got our members up out of their chairs working together and in many cases, with people they don’t normally sit with. Our attendees raved about Frank in our end of conference survey! If you are looking for a F.R.E.S.H approach to leadership and development sessions F.R.A.N.K is your guy!"
- Kara Daniel, Missouri Association of Public Purchasing
