"I thoroughly enjoyed the Showcase event, and I had an opportunity
to meet and talk with several convention planners during the breaks
and lunch. Although I am employed with the largest association management
company in the USA I am also a speaker who appreciates the opportunity
to work with your bureau. I gave your portfolio of participating speakers
brochures to the head of conventions and trade shows for Smith Bucklin
& Associates here in Washington DC as SBA handles over 40 associations
in DC and about 100 our of our Chicago office. They can all benefit
from your showcase speakers." Charles F. Dambach, President,
Museum Trustee Association
"Thom, congratulations on an excellent speakers showcase on March
12 in Atlanta! The speakers were all great and your management and leadership
of the entire evolution of the event and the event itself was superb.
It was well worth the effort I put into preparing for it. Thank you
for all your guidance. Thank you for the recent paid booking too!"
Barry Benator, President, Benatech, Inc.
"It was a great delight to be a part of your recent Showcase
in San Diego. I appreciate the opportunity to strut my stuff to such
a great audience. You put on an excellent, well organized production
with top-quality video production. There was a wide variety of talented
individuals at your bureau Showcase, all with interesting stories to
tell. I look forward to seeing you at a future event." Rodger
B. Price, Past President National Speakers Association, San Diego Chapter
"I really enjoyed having the opportunity to meet and learn
from the speakers at the Phoenix Showcase. Some really funny and informative
expert people! I have included information I learned in my own monthly
newsletter to benefit my clients. The people who came to your Showcase
were such a wide range of individuals resulting in bookings and learning.
I am looking forward to have fun working with you in the future too,
and thanks for the demo videotape!"
Carolyn B. Thompson, President, Training Systems, Inc.
"Thank you so much for the excellent Speakers Success Showcase
you put on in Phoenix. Just being a part of your showcase taught me
many things as a speaker--how to do a proper video, how to clearly and
succinctly make a presentation to meeting planners, and also how to
determine the needs of meeting planners. As a past college President,
I can tell you that budget dollars for meetings and conferences must
be spent wisely; choosing one of your professional speakers via a LIVE
SHOWCASE would be a major step towards having any successful conference."
Dr. Mary Koski, Author, Publisher, Speaker
"I have completed my fourth Speakers Showcase with you and
your company and I must say without reservation, each has been a better
experience than the last one including the most recent in Denver. Psheew,
I even have gotten better! it seems every audience, each group of meeting
planners, you assemble has been a group of HEAVY WEIGHTS and BUYERS!
I have had offers to serve and am thinking I will acquire more bookings
due to your labors--which, by the way are grand labors! You are a diligent
bureau chief, Thom Lisk, for sure. Thanks for the Ohio lead too for

great work! I have appreciated your personalized attention to me."
Cheryl Mace, Speaker, Business Leader
"Your bureau sponsored Speakers Showcase in Chicago recently provided
an excellent opportunity that benefits both the speaker and the meeting
planner. The management of the program packs each minute with ideas,
and it is impossible not to walk away with a wealth of ideas and information
that will help speaker and meeting planner both have more success. Thank
you!" Dr. Allen Konopacki, President, Center for Research
& Sales Training
"What a great concept and what a great service you, Thom, and
your company provide--truly WIN-WIN-WIN relationship for all concerned!
With the time pressure so many people experience these days, Speakers
Showcases like the yours recently where I appeared in Ohio and Arizona
offers meeting-planners and speakers cost-efficient ways--in both time
and money--to accomplish their respective goals. I wish you continued
success in your strong commitment to serve mankind." Dennis

running the best Speakers Showcase in America that I have ever attended.

peace prevailed due to your management of the event. Thom, it is a real
pleasure working with you and your bureau!"

"The Showcases recently in Washington DC and Dallas Texas were
professional managed and I know reached many Meeting Planner decision
makers. All of the speakers provided excellent information combined
with humor and wisdom. I benefited greatly from the experience. It was
a day full of sharing and the opportunity to see old friends and meet
many new ones (networking times were good). Thanks for making the showcase
available to me and my colleagues. I am looking forward to a long and
mutually beneficial relationship with your TerrificSpeakers.com and
John Paul, Partner, Association Works
"I came away from your recent Florida Showcase with the feeling
of being extremely stimulated as I reflect upon my newly-gained knowledge,
and I am motivated to pursue additional personal goals. You had so many
interesting speakers on a wide variety of topics and meeting planners
who were appreciative of the invitation. I was so glad I was video taped
with all your professional staging and cameras--the tape is already
proving useful. Thank you. I highly recommend your organization."

"It was a pleasure working with you, meeting the bureau personnel,
and speaking at the Boston area Showcase. We look forward to working
with you and to my tape of the showcase performance. This was such a
positive experience that I want you to send us information about the
scheduled showcases in Chicago and Columbus as may be interested in
speaking there as well." J. Peter Duncan, Center for Strategic
"I enjoyed participating in the D.C. Showcase and I found the experience
very worthwhile. I liked the format and I especially ejoyed hearing
the other speakers and the chance to network with such a talented group
of speakers and meeting planners. While I was reluctant at first to
participate, I am very glad I did. Your understanding and encouragement
made all the difference and you were very clear about the process, the
taping, and what to expect and I would get. Thanks, also, for the preview
tape that you sent me to review to consider what I in turn would get.
You are terrific for sure!"
Devona E.G. Williams, Ph.D. Goeins Williams Associates, Consulting,

"The downtown Philadelphia Speakers Success Showcase was exciting
and a real learning experience for me with many ongoing benefits. There
were some (other) great presentations and I learned a lot about speaker
delivery. I love the tape of my presentation. In addition to helping
me (and your bureau) promote myself now, it is very helpful in my improving
my performance. I look forward to speaking more!" Arthur Cohen,
BA, MA, Target Consultants Int'l Ltd.
"Wow! The Washington DC Speakers Showcse was great! You arranged
an outstanding lineup of speakers and meeting planners to preview. These
great speakers informed, taught, entertained, and excited all those
in attendance. The Meeting Planners who were not at thsi event missed
a great opportunity to see and hear outstanding speakers... but I understand
now that you have my video demo tape and literature you will offer me
to others, also, in that market! Great! I look forward to being a part
of your bureau and being offered ongoing, and thanks for the tape and
the association with you." Glenn Daughtridge, Veteran Speaker,
President, Humor with a Purpose
"I believe that your Orlando Showcase offered a cost effective
way to connect with Meeting Planners and to have a great video demo
tape produced with great staging and equipment before a love audience.
I also obtained significant value from the presentations and interactions
with you and the speakers that day. Also, this provided a unique opportunity
for me to present my newest material before the live audience... I was
able to make two presentations and get two tapings."
