"I Believe that people find you irresistibly attractive when you make it all about THEM.  And it's easy when you know how to communicate to energize, connect to engage, and cultivate to enrich.  Some great teachers taught me how to do this. I can teach you.  It's what I do.  The more I get to share the more alive I become.  Woo hoo.

He was one of only ten speakers featured by Meetings and Conventions Magazine in article entitled: "Most Wanted - Hottest Speakers On the Circuit Right Now!" Tony has written and published over forty-five stress management and motivation songs, and used them in meetings to energize, engage and enrich.

He has received over 600 letters of commendation or recommendation from executives of major corporations around the world including Southwest Airlines, Shell, Sprint, Tesoro, GVTV, First Bank, Lockheed, USAL, Ryland Homes, and others.

"I’ve seen Tony interact with people as a speaker, as a member of a group, and on an individual coaching basis.  In all of these environments, Tony creates a positive, supportive and encouraging 'zone' around him.  Once you enter that zone, you know that three things are going to happen. First, you are going to have fun.  Second, you are going to see things in a new and more positive way.  And third, you are going to walk away feeling a whole lot better about who you are and what you can accomplish."  - Rob Ghio, Law Office of Rob Ghio, P.C.
