"Hallie Bryant is the epitome of how an accomplished athlete can relate sports in a meaningful way to the values of life. Without preaching, Hallie relays to people how to survive and thrive by following simple tenets of good living. With a basketball instead of a baton, Hallie orchestrates without force that all people are basically the same. But with a mild philosophic approach we can all be better in dealing with loved ones and the people we meet everyday. His Magic Circle breaks down our natural defenses. Those who participate and watch, suddenly are laughing and putting aside their cares. It is a magic tonic everyone can accept without bad after effects. Employees of The Arizona Republic have enjoyed Hallie´s program. I would recommend him to any group or corporation. What he imbues, has a lasting effect on people of all ages."

- Bill Shover, The Arizona Republic

"Please accept this letter as a recommendation to other businesses and organizations for the phenomenal program that you presented to Heartland Hospice staff in March 2005 and the program that you presented to our Volunteers in April 2005. The staff and volunteers were forever changed after spending time with you. Your energy and enthusiasm that you exhibit while presenting such a simple message is inspiring. Our new team word is YES! The time that you spent with me in preparing for your presentation was more than sufficient. You were well prepared and rehearsed. Your follow-up to insure our satisfaction was beyond imaginable. Heartland Hospice looks forward to many years of inspiration from you in the future."

"I would like to report to you the feedback received by my office following your appearance at the Fall Foliage Festival Mayor´s Breakfast. There have been numerous calls and individuals stopping by my office to comment about your appearance. Among those comments were accolades on you being the best ever speaker at this event. Others have included your fantastic performance, your book, and the though provoking talk about having a positive attitude. Hallie, many remembered, as Vickie did, watching you on TV when you played for the Harlem Globetrotters. I truly believe the community would be delighted to again have you as a guest. I would also like to mention that Vickie delivered the order forms for your book to the Morgan County Public Library, and I would imagine that those purchases have already been made by now. I am also trying to do the same with the Metropolitan School District of Martinsville. Best wishes to you for a Happy Holiday Season and another successful year. "

"We at GE Lighting want to thank you for the dynamic double-header performance this week in Cleveland. Your motivational presentation to the more than 500 students at our adopted Collinwood High School was an appropriate mix of straight talk and fancy ball handling. And, of course, your Let´s have some fun program for our 1400 employees at Nela Park was right on target! You handled the rain-influenced instant switch from an outdoor full court stage to an indoor postage stamp performance area with ease and style. We appreciate everything you did with enthusiasm and good humor to make the GE-sponsored program with the students meaningful and the fun outing with our employees memorable. Thanks for sharing your talent."

"This is to let you know that people are still talking about the wonderful presentation you made at our Kickoff celebration. You were the hit of the program. You are extremely skilled at getting the message across, involving lots of people, and creating a fun environment. Some of the participants are now actually practicing moves! As soon as the photos are developed, I´ll be sending them to you to be autographed. I´m looking forward to having one too. Thanks just doesn´t seem adequate to express our appreciation. You added so much to the environment that we are striving for in Lake County to care for one another."
