“Anthony had the daunting task of opening an accountant’s conference the day after most delegates had partied the night away. Well, he woke everyone up! He was not only motivational but extremely entertaining and engaging at the same time. After he gave his speech, he had time for everyone that wanted to have a chat, I spoke to him personally which will hopefully help with my own personal goals. Highly recommended.”
“The reaction from the audience was great, with Anthony ranking as one of the most popular speakers on the day. His delivery was natural and the content engaging.”
