Testimonials & Praise!

Fantastic Communication Workshop! The Community Foundation of the Gunnison Valley asked Anthony to host a workshop for our regular Nonprofit Network meeting in Almont. The theme was the importance of body language in communication. Anthony has a knack for leading an engaging, insightful and interactive dialogue with a room full of people. He excels at establishing rapport with his audience and demonstrating the importance of building rapport in any situation. His presentation content with a dash of self-deprecating humor endear him to his audience. We, the staff of CFGV, were thrilled with yesterday's Nonprofit Network featuring Anthony and We've heard from a number of attendees about how helpful they found the workshop. We're already brainstorming Anthony's next gig with the local nonprofit community! Lauren, K. Community Foundation of the Gunnison Valley

Anthony can deliver! We hired him to emcee and moderate over two days for our San Juan Mining and Reclamation Conference. On the planning side, he was invaluable to helping us plan to meet our two conference goals, ample networking opportunities and the exchange of ideas. He came up with games to achieve both at our reception and implemented them flawlessly. He even helped me to deal with changes to the speaker lineup at the last minute. During our welcome reception he nimbly emceed according to the decorum of the event and the feedback from the crowd. I was most impressed with the thoughtful ways he engaged our attendees through storytelling, jokes, and his experience with the subject matter. During the conference, he was diligent in keeping all the sessions and speakers within the set limits. He was respectful and hilarious all at the same time. He asked knowledgable questions and tied the session themes together and hosted an excellent panel session. Feedback from our attendees repeatedly stated he was the best addition to our conference yet! I would recommend Anthony's services to anyone. ~Guinevere Nelson, Headwaters Alliance

Delighted with Happiness talk! Anthony's knowledge of non-profits and how to communicate with all types of people made him uniquely qualified to connect with our audience. His sense of humor and ease with adapting to any situation makes him an asset to every event he is a part of. The content and handouts were excellent and our group continues to talk about his presentation and how much fun they had. We look forward to working with Anthony on our next fundraising adventure!

Joyful and authentic! Anthony Poponi was a featured speaker for Western's annual Family Weekend. His presentation on brain chemistry and joy was a standout for the weekend. He delighted our guests with personal anecdotes, humor and a sprinkling of good ol' academia. He knocked it out of the park! If you have an opportunity to invite Anthony to speak at one of your events, do it; he won't disappoint! - Sara P, Western Colorado University

As an emcee, Anthony takes the time to research the content of our event presenters and it shows. He runs a cohesive event that is meaningful for the audience - from start to finish. He is also very easy to work with in the planning stages - both flexible and thoughtful. We even use him as a pitch trainer for our Accelerator program. ~ Delaney Keating, ICELab Colorado Director
