"Ticha is a great example of the type of immigrants we should attract and make citizens. He is passionately living the American Dream and deservedly so. Ticha has been our independent consultant for over seven years. Many of our stakeholders comment to me on how great Ticha has been. He is creative, attentive, focused, smart and responsive. He is good at connecting even with strangers. As an example of his popularity, the staff joined him at a party to celebrate his citizenship in 2011. He goes above and beyond to accomplish tasks and was a recipient of the CEA Spotlight Award in 2010. I am happy to recommend Ticha as he is a man of integrity with a great future."

"I met Samuel Ticha at a professional conference in Arlington, TX in 2002. We envisioned a partnership between our two organizations which would enhance both organizations' ability to achieve our goals. We successfully spearheaded this partnership and remained business partners for the next 2 years. I have always been impressed by Samuel's ability to dream big while never missing a detail. He is incredibly wise and funny, and his strong ethics make him a pleasure to work with. He has extensive professional experience across many countries which allows him to relate to just about anyone. We have stayed in close contact to this day. Learning more about Samuel's courageous life journey also revealed to me where his gratitude, tenacity, creativity, and innovation come from. If we're lucky in life, we meet someone that changes our perspective because of what that person has been through. Samuel is one of these extraordinary people."

"I can testify that Ticha is a hard-working person with great regard for results, performance, and quality. He is very innovative with an eye for detail. Except for a few, no trainer wants to come in after Ticha...he is an electrifying trainer both at national and international levels. At the end of a three-hour presentation, for instance, he sounds like he just started. I have been a close friend, schoolmate, and colleague with Ticha for over 20 years now. I do not know anyone with that much enthusiasm, an eternally positive attitude, an eternal learning attitude, and the ability to motivate individuals and very complex teams to accomplish dream goals. Most of all, Ticha has the unique ability to convert total strangers into instant friends and this explains partially why he is a stakeholder engagement guru."

"Having worked with you on a number of projects, I consider you a "Maverick". You never take a "No", for an answer. You never let conventional thinking define who you are or what you accomplish.
I have seen you transform a project from nothing to something worth the attention of a whole nation and continent, during the African Congress of 1995.
In fundraising, I have seen you pump fresh blood into a project that was collapsing. With your maverick skills, you turned it around, cashing in millions of dollars, without which the project would have failed.
Were it not for your professional acumen, infinite negotiation, and team-building skills, hundreds of Cameroonians would not have benefited from the International Association of Students in Economics and Management (AIESEC) program.
Thanks to your contributions, hundreds like me have traveled the world, contributed to the community and corporate projects, and more importantly, learned invaluable skills that are helping us to thrive internationally.
It is with profound respect and admiration, that I offer this recommendation of you as a force to reckon with, in innovative thinking, public engagement, and high-performance leadership."
