Vince Poscente Reviews

  • We loved Vince! He was the first professional speaker we’ve hired in a long time and his professionalism showed. He was engaging, interesting, and really got my attendees thinking, laughing, and motivated to have a world-class safety culture. He had a line of people waiting to speak to him after he concluded and I presume he’ll be getting some more business from our attendees.

Many, many of us eagerly await his 70 Second eBrief. Thanks for the inspiration, Vince!!!!
