“We have had presidents, senators, congressmen, governors, comedians and a myriad others speak at our dinners over the last 20 year, but we received more positive comments about Steve’s speech than anyone else’s. Steve was tremendously helpful to us as we prepared the program for the evening. He was beautifully prepared, making his presentation fit perfectly with our goal for the entire event. In a word he was the “best.” We will certainly want him to do it again.”
