Events are hard! Events are also an extension of your organization to those in attendance. Poorly organized events will kill the energy of your event and lose your guests FAST!
As emcee and moderator, Anthony keeps the energy up and smoothes over the blemishes so your guests don’t see the chaos going on behind the scenes – all while tying together your themes, recognizing your sponsors, and making your life easier. I’m here to make you look good (wink!). Have a theme and want some flair? Let’s talk costumes!
Making people laugh is my gift, making people connect is my purpose and making your event memorable is my passion. ~Anthony Poponi
TESTIMONIALS AND PRAISE!
Amazing Keynote on Leadership During Challenging Times! Wow, what a refreshing experience to have Anthony speak with a group of local leaders. I have been to many local and national keynote events on leadership and this one, by far, was my favorite. Anthony takes a unique perspective with a hilarious and interactive approach. I was never bored and felt like I had actual takeaways to put to use afterward. A lot of speakers have tried to spin an inspirational approach of "pulling yourself up from your bootstraps" when addressing a room of pandemic leaders and it can be disingenuous or over done. Anthony kept it light and genuine without discounting challenges! Highly recommend if you are looking for an engaging, interactive, and genuine speaker. Expect to laugh and change perspective.

Fun, yet professional - a meeting planner's dream! Working with Anthony from the very moment I contacted him was great! He was responsive to my emails and low maintenance in terms of speakers needs/requests. I loved his positive attitude from the time we spoke until we met in person. His presentation and stories were applicable to all areas of life; he was both funny and serious when needed. I work with a lot of speakers; if they could all be as easy and professional to work with as Anthony, I'd be thrilled!!
Exactly what we were looking for. Anthony provided a 4-hour inspirational presentation on leadership for our Management Team. NO one fell asleep (a problem in past special presentations!). It was a good blend of comedic presentation, activities and fun, giving our team things to think about and apply in their daily lives and leadership roles. Several of our folks provided positive feedback regarding. Thank-you, Anthony!!
The most fun and engaging session of our conference! Anthony Poponi's presentation on Leadership was fun, engaging and full of good content. It was obvious he loves what he does and wants to share his knowledge and experiences with others. A survey of our conference attendees brought back nothing but positive feedback on his session and it was noted he even managed to keep us awake and engaged after a heavy lunch!
Great Energy and Information! Working with Anthony was a joy. We met to discuss a potential topic for our group of young professionals and he was engaging, funny, and knowledgeable. His presentation was insightful, fun, and left everyone with ideas of how to utilize their leadership strengths, and how to work with their weaknesses in a positive way. Our group valued the content and enjoyed Anthony's presentation overall!
The Perfect Mix of Informative and Funny. I had the privilege to hear Anthony speak live, and I do not use the term lightly. He is an incredible speaker and blended information from his expertise with humor exquisitely. I loved watching him speak. In personal communication with Anthony, I told him his speaking was like watching a stand-up comedy show (something I do rather often) where I learned something. He spoke on his "Focus on the 40" philosophy. If you're considering Anthony for your event, stop considering and book him. You won't regret it.
Anthony was better than I expected. I had never hired a motivational speaker for our convention. Anthony was the star of the convention. He reached out to people who knew our industry and he did his homework well. He kept a room of 150 broadcasters entertained and engaged. Our broadcasters are a jaded and difficult group to please, Anthony was perfect. We have booked him for other events. Hire him you will not be disappointed.
