Our team is a collaborative partnership including likeminded individuals and organizations who are leading change in various ways. Our foundation is built around a collaborative, culturally diverse infrastructure capable of leading conversations in a wide variety of spaces and more importantly, covering a wide range of topics. Training topics will include, but are not limited to:


  • Sexual Harassment, Misconduct and Assault

  • Domestic Violence

  • Child Abuse

  • Human Trafficking

  • Stalking

  • Incest

  • Retaliation

  • Trauma-Informed Responses

  • Offender & Victim Behaviors

  • Resiliency & Recovery

  • Self-Care

  • Prevention Best Practices

  • Community Collaboration



  • Cultivating Difference Makers: Influencing a Cultural Shift (Bystander Intervention)

  • Understanding Male Victimization: The Overlooked Survivors

  • Understanding Recovery: The Many Faces of Resiliency (Survivor Panel)

  • Understanding Alcohol Facilitated Sexual Assaults: Blame it on the Alcohol?

  • Removing Retaliation: Creating a Culture of Respect

  • Military Investigations and Justice System

  • My Story Behind The Story: Survivor Testimony of Eric Barreras (CEO/Founder)



In addition to the highlighted presentations above we also deliver a wide range of survivor testimonies. This can be the sole purpose of the visit, or in conjunction with a presentation above. Many of our current collaborative partners are survivors, but not all of them. Our survivors come from various backgrounds in and out of the military and involve incidents of child abuse, stalking, human trafficking, domestic violence and sexual assaults. Lastly, we customize presentations based on an organization’s need, so if there is a topic they would like addressed, we’ll work closely with our collaborative partners to give an organization exactly what they need. (For example: Stalking, Human Trafficking, Trauma-Informed Responses, Ethics in Advocacy). We have the ability to craft the perfect training experience for any organization (high school, college, university, military base, corporation or community advocacy event/summit). If you would rather work directly with one of our collaborative partners we'd be happy to make the connection. We just want you to find exactly what you need to change culture and provide innovative training and education for your community.


How Much Do You Charge?

Based on general guideline below we will deliver up to three presentations during one visit, at no additional cost, all of which must be delivered within a two-day span. Whether it’s one presentation, or three presentations the speaking fee is generally the same. The total cost for a visit will vary from location to location based on travel expenses, number of speakers requested and number of presentations (if exceeding three). For example, we've facilitated up to 8 presentations in one visit, and as such the total cost increased slightly. The general guideline below is merely a pre-planning tool for organizations to consider. If we conduct a visit with an organization that involves a collaborative partner, we won’t finalize contract without the involved partner’s agreement to terms. All final terms agreed upon are split equitably between the involved partners. It’s important to note, Difference Makers (10 Strong) receives nothing extra for making referrals or co-facilitating a presentations involving a collaborative partner. We reserve the right to work with some organizations, including non-profits or conference organizers who have a limited buget. In addition, we will also provide an organization with some guidance and recommendations on hosting a collaborative cost effective event with another organization in their respective community. We firmly believe that no organziation or community should be prevented from hosting an event, due to budgetary constraints. We will help communities find a solution.

  • 1 Speaker (up to three presentations in one visit) - $5,000-$6,000 (travel costs are inclusive)

  • 2 Speakers (up to three presentations in one visit) - $8,000-$9,000 (travel costs are inclusive)

  • 3 Speakers (up to three presentations in one visit) - $10,000-$12,000 (travel costs are inclusive)

  • Virtual Trainings are available upon request. There is a slight decrease in cost for virtual trainings, and quotes can be provided upon request. 

Note: Once we know specifically what types of training and number of speakers an organizations requests, we can send a more accurate quote. We do have a non-profit rates, which will apply on a case by case basis.
