Speaker, John Verrico

Who is this guy?

John Verrico is a communication professional with more than 37 years of experience in journalism, public relations, and speaking. Over the years, through observation, formal education and first-hand experience, John learned more and more about how communication, leadership and personal motivation are deeply entwined. He began sharing what he learned with others and his training seminars grew and evolved from a hobby to a passion. Today, he helps individuals and groups to better understand one another. Let John teach you and your organization more about motivation—of ourselves and others—and how motivation is dramatically impacted by how we communicate with each other.

John humorous and interactive keynotes and workshops engage audiences in an entertaining way that resonates with people and helps them become more successful. 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.
