Testimonials & Praise!

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

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

Anthony was a great host for our fundraiser at the Republik. His ability to keep the evening on time while promoting the opportunities for our organization to raise money was commendable. We exceeded our fundraising goals and Anthony was definitely one of the reasons we were so successful. ~Kahi Piccaro, Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii

Gave our event the energy it was severely lacking!! Anthony emceed a business networking event for us that, after it's fourth year, had gotten a little "stale." Anthony brought energy and humor to the event that kept people engaged throughout and was thoroughly prepared. I would highly recommend him for your next event! ~ Sara Knudsen, Colorado Small Business Development Center

As owner of an event planning company finding a good emcee is very important to us and we are so glad we found Anthony. He has now down several events for us and our clients have always been very impressed with his services. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, helpful, and fun! He takes time to really get to know the details of the event, he prepares his talking points well in advance, and he knows how to work the crowd. ~ Amanda Corby Noguchi, Owner & Creative Director, Under My Umbrella Inc.
