Vinny didn't have to break any arms to get these quotes:

There's not much to laugh about in health care these days, but you helped put difficult situations in perspective with your no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners, street-smart approach. My members are still talking about the 3 F's.
-- Toni M. Fatone, Executive VP, Connecticut Association of Health Care Facilities

Your presentation was an absolute RIOT! I am still hearing from participants about your performance.
-- Penny Murphy, President & CEO, Empire State Society of Association Executives

Jon's performance at our annual conference as Vinny Verelli was second to none. He was an event planners dream to work with as he was very accommodating when the schedule shifted or he had to do some quick thinking on his feet. I would recommend Jon as a speaker to anyone looking for a professional and entertaining MC.
-- Kristi Conti, Event Coordinator, SHNIER, Gesco

Many thanks for a great performance! Also, kudos for putting up with our “back and forth” on content. Vinny Rules!
-- Catie O’Keefe, Vice President, O’Keefe Communications

The time (Vinny) spent researching our company definitely showed in his presentations! He was able to incorporate ideas and humor concerning our business to keep our conference lively and interactive. This set the tone for sharing information in an open and collaborative atmosphere ... he had us laughing all day long. I highly recommend him.
-- Patrick McHugh, Vice President of North American Operations, Scientific Games International

Having years of experience listening to motivational speakers (ZZZZZzzzzzzz), I found Vinny Verelli to be the most interesting, relevant, fall-out-of-your-seat funniest of them all. You far exceeded my expectations and you definitely won over the Prewett family. Your delivery, honesty, humor and simplicity of message caught the attention of what is normally a very tough audience. Even my 3 kitchen designers, Pauly, Silvio, and Dom got it.
-- Bob Rosenzweig, Showroom Manager Atlanta Kitchen & Bath

... a fabulous addition to our worldwide franchise partner conference ... Vinny delivered an inspirational message, with his own sense of style that was right on target and very well received. So get off your butt and hire Vinny!
-- Steve Romaniello, President and CEO, FOCUS Brands

We appreciate Vinny taking the time to prepare and customize his presentation for our team. Everyone was amazed at how much he knew about our organization. The presentation was informative and had the appropriate amount of humor to keep everyone's attention throughout the entire presentation.
-- Steve Johnson, Distribution Control Center Supervisor, Georgia Power

 I appreciated the way you took the time to get to know us before your presentation. That tells me you were sincere in your efforts and knew how to “get through to us.”  Your “roasting” of me was a riot; although done in a humorous manner, it was tasteful and right on target. My people just loved it.  
-- Doug Peetz, Director of Financial Services, Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice

Vinny not only customized his program to relate to my staff's everyday stresses, but he made them laugh about things that they were complaining about just days before. I highly recommend Vinny for a fun, relaxing stress buster and your staff will return to their everyday routine with a whole new outlook on life!!
-- Tim Haller, Lima City Schools

We appreciate the time and effort that you took to get to know our business, our “lingo,” and our “darkest secrets.” Your speech was not only motivating and captivatingly amusing, but heartfelt.
-- Ann Emmerson, President, Connecticut Apartment Association

Your simple approach to motivation by way of Negativity Management was enjoyable and easy for us common Southern folks to grasp. You brought us laughter, which is a motivational tool all its own, allowing us to relax and our negative thoughts to dissipate.
-- Jillian Jones, Chair, Professional Development, Clayton State University

You skillfully entertained this rather spoiled group and, by the end of the performance, had them eating out of your hand… Thank you for sharing your incredible talent.
-- Dianne McGarey, CMP, Executive Producer, Axtell Productions

Wow - thanks for the knockout keynote. Your portrayal of the humorous Vinny Verelli had us laughing for days.
-- Kafi Matimiloju, President and CEO, KiSoBo, Inc.
