Who is this guy?

John Verrico is a communication professional with more than 37 years of experience in journalism, public relations, and speaking. As an under-sized youth and the victim of bullies, John found hope in classic monster movies & “B” flicks where he learned that the little guy could win. Drawing from these lessons, John combined what he learned through professional observation, formal education and first-hand experience, about how communication, leadership, motivation and resilience are deeply entwined. Today, John is an infotainer who helps empower villagers to keep their torches lit and face their monsters.

John’s humorous and interactive keynotes and workshops engage audiences as they discover helpful insights into office climate, culture, relationships & communications. John is committed to helping businesses and individuals succeed by exploring effective communication & leadership. What makes his approach different is that he doesn't use canned materials. John works with clients to tailor the key points to his audience. While John can pull from a bank of applicable stories, his natural affinity for storytelling makes every presentation unique.
