“One of the best.”

"Duane engaged our five hundred students (no easy task) with a unique blend of drawing, acting and storytelling. His learning target of knowing and implimenting his four words to success was perfectly aligned to the message we are always providing to our students. During my over THREE DECADES of school assemblies, Duane's DRAW YOUR DESTINY was one of the best!

"Duane not only spent the whole day with our students and had lunch with all of our kids, he shared an amazing message and we could not have been more pleased with the day! For a combination of inspiration, entertainment, 100% student engagement, and a loud and clear message about trying and never giving up on your dreams, Duane M. Abel's DRAW YOUR DESTINY can't be beat!"

“Everything we wanted and more.”

"If you're looking for a GREAT motivational speaker, stop looking...call Duane. Our event was thoroughly pleased with his lighthearted blend of inspirational life lessons of the Sunday Funnies and witty anecdotes letting us peek into the world of cartooning. We learned  a lot and laughed even more!"

Everyone loved his message and how the keys to their continued personal development can be found within the Sunday Funnies. Our attendees LOVED him, which is evident because as soon as he walked off the stage he was flooded with hugs, kind words, and heartfelt praise for such a genuine and uplifing message. From inspiring an association... to re-energizing the vision and focus of your company, the message is the same...CALL DUANE!"
