Many thanks to all my exceptional corporate keynote speaking clients! There’s nothing in the world like having the ability to connect with so many incredible people from so many different walks of life! I appreciate the kind words — and the connectivity!
Just wanted to say thank you again for an excellent keynote. I continue to get outreach from both customers and staff commenting on how amazing you were and how you made them laugh, cry, and feel inspired. Everything I expected and knew you would deliver. —Christopher Faust, SAI Global
Not only were you entertaining, but your message gave folks some things to think about on their plane rides home…the desired objective attained! Great work and many thanks! — Robert S. Louttit, GEMALTO
Connie was so easy going and great to work with from beginning to end. I received nothing but positive feedback from her presentations. She was funny, engaging, and I could tell that she practices what she preaches. She gave our managers and leadership team a lot to “chew on” and now they have some work to do! — David Stephens SuperAmerica
People are still “buzzing” about the opening – she was awesome! Here are a few comments I pulled from the feedback: Connie Podesta was an AMAZING speaker. She was engaging, funny, and had so much valid information to present in such a great way on how to engage others in the workplace and in life in general. Kudos to the team for bringing her in. She was one of the best speakers I have heard in YEARS! Well done. Connie was EXCELLENT!!! One of the best speakers I have ever heard and a great topic for work and life. Connie was amazing!! At first, I just thought I was being thoroughly entertained. But at the end, it all came full circle and delivered powerful messages. Amazing woman – I learned a lot from this session and I am so grateful I was able attend! — Joyce Brooks, State Farm
I just wanted to send you a quick note letting you know how profoundly you’ve impacted me at The Mark Travel Summit in Cancun. I am a first-time father with an 8-month-old and above all that I took away from your presentations, my change of perspective on how to handle my son (and his manipulation to come) is what I value most. THANK YOU so much for taking the time to share with us. Most of the time I felt you were speaking directly to me and it was a little scary how much I connected with everything you were saying. I hope you know how great of an influence you are on people. — Jason Takeuchi, Aloha VIP Tours, Inc.
We really enjoyed having you at our event. I’ve heard lots of positive feedback about your keynote- everyone loved it! Thanks for helping us get off to a great start for our conference! We are delighted you could be with us. –Carrie, Graybar
Just had the wonderful experience of attending Connie’s keynote speaking event at our closing luncheon in New Orleans. Wanted to just pass along to her how much I thoroughly enjoyed her fun and informative presentation. Connie truly made the conference memorable. —David Roussos, DAVID’S LTD JEWELERS
This is the fourth time I was lucky enough to attend your presentation. Your presentation is very insightful, and I have learned something new about myself each and every time. I just want to say thank you. You have brought out some ideas and or thoughts that have help my personal life, as well as business life. Thank you again you were the best by far at the CHS experience. —Terry Schmidt, CHS Inc. Marshall Regional
The attendees loved Connie! —Jaymi Damron, Pilot Travel Centers
You did a GREAT job at The UPS Store convention. Keep up the great mixture of message, positive outlook and humor. —Paul Lieberman, UPS Stores
Connie worked with me two years in a row. The first year she was our highlight speaker for an annual Labor & Employment seminar. The audience is predominately HR folks, small business owners and risk management people. After hosting this seminar for 12 years, we decided it was time to give them something entertaining, as well as useful. The next year, Connie came back and was our guest speaker at the Biloxi seminar. She more than achieved what I was hoping for. The audience loved her! We do evaluations and she received all “excellent” and not one person marked her less than excellent. Connie’s presentation gave the audience much needed energy for the day. It was funny, informative and really quite motivational. I chose her myself because years ago I saw one of her videos and quite frankly it was life-changing for me. She talked about happiness in your work and home life in that video and it really had me taking a look at myself and my life. She can and does tailor each presentation for the audience to which she presents. I had her do “Life Would Easy If It Weren’t for Other People.” She really looked at who the audience would be and we talked quite a bit about the content. I know that hiring a speaker can be a really big deal. Especially when their price tag is high. I had seen Connie’s video and knew that if it impacted me that much, that it she was certainly going to hit home with my attendees. –Nora R. Chandler, Balch & Bingham LLP
I had the pleasure of booking Connie Podesta to speak at the Small Business Leaders program. She did a phenomenal job and the audience loved her and her message. Thank you for providing outstanding service that made the whole audience proud of State Farm. —Julie Fairfield, State Farm Insurance
I was at the Tropical Smoothie Convention in Orlando. I want you to know how much I enjoyed your teaching. It all is applicable to work, but I loved how it fits in all aspects of life. I’m taking the shapes information to my daughter’s 2nd-grade class. For a teacher to have this simple tool to help understand her students, just a bit better, could make all the difference – especially for those squiggles out there. Looking forward to learning more from you. —Judy Hamann, Next Steps Resourcing, Inc.
You did a wonderful job! Tons of positive feedback from our field and agents. In my opinion, you were the absolute right person with the right message at the right time! THANKS! —Chip Overbey, Old Dominion Freight Line
You were a fantastic contributor to our very successful key talent program! Some of my toughest critics all year were chanting, “Connie! Connie!” on the chatter group this week. I think we have a hit here! I definitely will look forward to working with you again – you’re a very rare commodity in our field, in that you’re a “sure thing” every time. —Naomi Chavez Peters, Salesforce

I want you to know that everyone I spoke with thought you were wonderful. You are a very gifted person! —Chris McCarty, Bullitt County Belt & Supply, NIBA Convention
Sending our appreciation for such an awesome presentation at our Store Manager’s Leadership Meeting. With close to 2,000 people in attendance, you struck an amazing balance between motivating and energizing the team and still managing to educate and equip them as well. Your presentation was clearly one of the highlights the entire week for our group! We’re now two weeks since the conclusion of the meeting and we’re still getting great feedback! Your contributions go well beyond that of the typical presenter or speaker at a conference. We appreciate you and the momentum you’ve helped us generate as we go into our peak selling season – we expect to see the impact in sales and profit at the end of the year! –Shawn Hearn, MICHAELS
Everyone loved you! After your session, I felt like a rock star! I got so many positive comments that I not only can’t remember them all, but to put them in perfectly paragraphed and punctuated prose is not possible. But I did keep hearing ‘she was the best we ever had’ and ‘let’s have her again next year! – Tasca Lincoln-Mercury, Inc.
For me, you were the highlight of the conference—even better than George and Barbara Bush or Kenny Loggins! – American Express
It is rare for the Million Dollar Round Table to invite a speaker back and NEVER two years in a row, but in your case we are glad we made an exception. Great job! – Million Dollar Round Table

In all my travels, regardless of the subject, speaker, or setting, I have never seen an audience so captivated by a motivational speaker.

Connie Podesta was awesome! The amount of positive buzz we experienced after your program was phenomenal! – Case Management Society of America

Your presentation at the National Conference of Lieutenant Governors Annual Meeting in June was exceptional. – State of Mississippi
You proved to be the best choice for closing a fantastic, fun-filled five-day conference. Your high energy, fast-paced, inspirational style had the audience on the edge of their seats for 2 ½ hours.

Excellent program, enjoyable and engaging! Liked the inspiring sense of reality, yet supported with human caring. Phenomenal! – Society of Human Resources Management
What a fabulous presentation! You made us a promise that you would set the standard for all the speakers to follow, and you certainly did. Your captivating, ‘tell it like it is’ style, delivered with your comedic flair, forced us to examine why we behave and react as we do. I was overwhelmed with messages and comments from employees praising you and the important message you delivered to us. I truly believe that lives were changed in a positive way because of your presentation. – FDIC
You consistently have been a very popular presenter, and you did it again! It is your energetic and enthusiastic ‘I can handle this’ approach which hits home, and you send us away assured that we can make a difference. – Association of Legal Administrators
