Mr. Neves moved my project forward, really fast.
Antonio was super helpful, informative and a pleasure to speak with. I left our conversation with more insight and tips than I'd planned on receiving!
Antonio is super helpful. He helped me prepare for the video interview. His insight and suggestions have saved me from embarrassment. I look forward to future calls with Antonio.
Antonio is always able to provide clarity on the situation. This man is top notch and hiring him as my coach has been one of the best decisions I've ever made.
Always incredibly thought provoking. Antonio will get you thinking about your business idea, problem, or solution in ways you haven't imagined yet. Great all around guy, 5 stars every time.
Antonio is a true expert! We met this summer at a speaking engagement he did at UCLA and immediately was impressed with his story, level of professionalism and credentials! In our 1on 1 coaching call, he further opened up many resources and made recommendations on avenues I should take in order to hit my goals. I look forward to continuing to work with him and would recommend him as a valuable coach and resource!
Antonio is a game-changer for anyone looking to take their career to the next level. He is good at identifying strengths that may not be apparent, and he is a motivating force.
I have made key hires and decisions because of my work with Antonio. Coaching can be a long process, but I saw results quickly by working with him.
Antonio has an amazing gift at quickly getting to the greatness residing within his clients and collaboratively creating action plans with tangible and measurable steps. He's the real deal. He eschews cliche's and corporate platitudes in favor of authentic and meaningful conversations. This is what sets him apart and I am so much better at what I do because of his generosity and talent.
Antonio Neves is a great mentor who has brought a completely different dimension to my professional life. With THINQACTION, I was able to crack the code of how to take my career to the next level. Together, we were able to identify my strengths and weaknesses while honing my skills and refining my approach. Antonio worked tirelessly for me and I could have never achieved my goals without him. I strongly recommend Antonio for anyone who wants to take that giant leap forward towards greatness.
Antonio possesses what most people only wish for: The ability to communicate successfully in front of cameras, crowds, and clients. Whether through journalism, entertainment, keynote addresses, or personal presentations, he applies a rare ability to captivate, motivate, and move his audience. Through THINQACTION, he shares his skills as a producer, author, journalist, and coach with the next generation of media and creative leaders. I plan to see his name, along with the names of his clients, in the Who’s Who of this and coming decades.
Antonio asks questions so good that he uncovers important problems his clients don’t even know exist. And then he asks even better ones to drive change towards sharpened skills and overcome hurdles. He is an indispensable.
