All meeting planners know, deep down in their heart, that speaker selection is always somewhat of a “crap-shoot.” Regardless of how glowing the recommendations – no matter how positive the references – all manner of superlative reports notwithstanding – when the final selection is made, you palms always start to sweat. Is this the right speaker for the group? Will they make you a hero or will they make you a goat? Thanks for making me a hero! The response to your presentation has been overwhelming; everybody loved you! Your comments provided the perfect blend of laughter and thought provoking commentary. Not only did you...

Vince Poscente was part of our Retail Success summit and he nailed it! We were thrilled how he spoke to our small to medium-sized retail folks who are dedicated to growing their business.  Finally, the standing O at the end was added evidence that Vince gave our retailers the exact boost they need to thrive.

Bob Negen

Founder
Retail Success Summit

In my capacity as President of MAACO, I have coordinated hundreds of motivational meetings and literally have heard hundreds of speakers. Vince’s message highlighting how the positive power vision and focus can have on one’s success truly reflects what I have seen in real life. The beauty of his message and his story impressed me more for its down to earth quality than any I have heard in many years. His approach was really a breath of fresh air.

Vince delivers on his promise of a high-energy and practical tools combined with his entertaining motivation. We brought him back to speak to multiple times to our Verizon groups to reinforce the message that loving what you do and do it well is critical to our success. We also enjoyed Vince’s quick wit. For example, at one point, his mic went out then came back on a couple of seconds later. He cracked-up our audience when he spontaneously mentioned our advertising catch phrase, “Can you hear me now?
