Our salespeople rated your presentation at 98% — higher than any other element of the meeting including the location (Kohala Coast, Hawaii). Comments from our salespeople include: Steve Rizzo is the best speaker I have ever heard at any event in my 30 years in business. Steve Rizzo was outstanding.
His message was not only valuable to the Fortis employees, but their spouses and guests as well. Steve Rizzo’s presentation was so poignant and powerful that I ordered copies of his book for our entire office staff. Your message really made a difference in peoples’ lives, Steve. And that is thegreatest gift anyone can hope to impart to others.

Every evaluation remarked on the excellence of your performance. Sales consultants told me that they finally realized why last year had been so difficult, namely because they failed to find any humor in the amount of work they were asked to produce. Managers are now walking around talking about having “options.” Your message of optimism was direct and yet by delivering it with the delightful stories and anecdotes; you reached out and touched our employees in a most profound way. I sincerely hope we will have other opportunities to witness the wonder of Steve Rizzo…he’s a man with a most unique humor being!

You delivered the perfect blend of humor and motivational stories. You provided the perfect conclusion to a day of back-to-back meetings and team-building exercises, and I know many of the meeting’s attendees considered your performance a highlight of the day’s events.

Your performance was greater than anything we could have anticipated. The combined seminar of “Humor in the Workplace” and “Don’t Just Except Change – Embrace It” provided just the message we hoped for. Your delivery provided a very strong message in an entertaining, thought provoking and stimulating manner. We received very positive feedback from our associates.

The world has many motivational speakers who make us feel better for a little while, but few who offer a simple and easy tool that can truly improve people’s quality of life. Thanks for being among that small number who make a difference.

Steve’s presentation was the BEST of the BEST and provided a message with laughter and kept each one of us fully engaged. I have NEVER received more recognition and positive comments form our clients, guests, and Senior Management team than I did from Steve Rizzo’s presentation. Thank you Steve, for an outstanding presentation and for making our event not only a success, but the BEST we ever had!

Steve Rizzo delivered what he promised when we hired him, i.e., to be the best keynote speaker we’ve ever had! I can honestly say that in the 18 years I have been attending National Sales meetings and organizing them for the past 5 years with Enterprise, nobody has delivered quite like Steve did. The feedback we got from our sales team immediately following his speech indicated that I am not the only person that feels this way. I know our folks left ready to tackle their sales goals with a renewed energy and definitely a better attitude!

I attended the workshop conducted by Steve Rizzo in Hartford, CT. He was delightful and was exactly what I needed at the moment. I bought the tickets with my daughter in mind who faces some chronic health issues. Little did I know that just days before the workshop I was hit with some life changing news that will cause much stress for me now and in the future. It was the best thing that could have happened to me at this time, seeing Steve Rizzo that is.
Your PBS Program is wow! What a powerfully remarkable paradigm for change and growth – imagine using humor! The message has been around for centuries, but you delivery is uniquely awesome, motivating, and powerful. You are indeed a born teacher blessed with an exquisite sense of humor and timing.
Sometimes we get all wound up in life and that’s when we say – “Tonight we want to watch Steve!” We have your DVD and would never part with it!
The last couple of nights, we’ve been watching it and having been reminded of what’s important in life – even with the midst of the Christmas rush – we are happy again!

Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! Your presentation at our Employee Workshop on humor and embracing change was outstanding. The feedback from our employees has been tremendous. When asked what topic or activity they valued the most about the workshop, 99% of them responded with Steve Rizzo. Your message was inspiring and very appropriate for our current situation. We are all aspiring to be “Humor Beings”.
