From the inner city of Miami, Florida, to the offices of college presidents and boardrooms of city officials, Xav Handfield isn’t a stranger to working hard despite the challenges of life.

Xav tackles every obstacle with integrity, honor, and excellence, and believes that achieving success is a choice that we make on a daily basis. Once it is honed, making the choice to succeed is a powerful skill, and it is his duty to unlock that within everyone that he comes into contact with.

"When Xav speaks, he finds a way to connect with the students and helps them to see their untapped potential. Xav's message is truly inspiring and I highly recommend him if you are looking for someone to speak to your college students."

The presentation was hosted via Zoom and he was expecting a large group. However, the class ended up being smaller than expected and Mr. Handfield was able to pivot on the spot and make the changes needed to fit the audience. His presentation was energetic, engaging, motivating, and inspiring. Immediately after his presentation, I called another department to recommend him for a future event on campus. If you’re looking for a motivational speaker for an event, I highly recommend Xav Handfield.
"Xav's special attention to detail made the students extremely comfortable with interacting with him. The topics he presented on included "Using your transferable skills to be successful" and "Effective communication while being emotionally intelligent." Each spoke directly to where the students were within the curriculum and the skills they need to succeed outside of the classroom."
