Client Testimonials & Letters to Jerry (continued)

And even more...

We had excellent feedback regarding your presentation and would love to have you speak again. 

Sandra Hofstetter, General Manager
Hampton Inn Hotel,  Chicopee, MA


Thank you very, very, very much for the wonderful presentation Monday evening.  I have heard from many attendees on how powerful the message you sent us was.  I know it was for me.  I have already thought about my "miracle" twice today.

Oh, and I can't wait until your book comes out.  Hurry and finish.

Kim Baker, CISR
Account Executive
LV Toole Insurance Agency, Lee, MA

You were quite a hit this morning!
On behalf of each member of the team, I thank you for the time you spent with us.
Your words of wisdom were greatly appreciated!

Most Sincerely,

Judy Rosenthal
Peabody Hotel Group Brand Management, Natick, MA 


Thanks for introducing me to my future self!   The process of identifying goals in many areas of my life was a useful one. I was able to painlessly narrow down what was important to me and find new ways to verbalize these dreams (goals). Having a recording in my own voice helps me focus in a new way each day on what I want to accomplish.

The group process is a powerful experience. Hearing the language others use to define their goals helps me clarify my own goals and lets me borrow new language in my own goal setting.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. - John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Jerry you definitely live by them. 

I just wanted to express my gratitude for all your spontaneity, humor, and profound knowledge you bring to your seminars and to let you know I truly appreciate your genuine presences as a speaker.  You seem to live by a high set of standards and seem to be very appreciative of the things in your life.  Thank you, thank you, thank you for your gifts to the world. 

Bruce H. Winkler

Whoa!  This experience was incredibly insightful and powerful.  The worksheets really make a difference.  Within the first hour of listening to my CD I could feel a few points starting to shift into action.    Whoa again!
Annie Emprima

Jerry -

I'm still laughing as I reflect on your wonderful program for our seniors last week.  Everyone loved it.  Good luck with all.  I hope to be able to invite you back again.  It was great.

I write you today in thanks for another great seminar on motivational thinking. This was the third one of your "gigs," as you like to call them, that I have been fortunate enough to attend, and I just wanted to let you know how much I value them. Each year I take out of your speeches that much more which continues to help better, inspire and drive my goals, my achievements, and my outlook on life.

So thanks again Jerry.

Respectfully yours,
Joshua Mesmer 

Hi Jerry,

I wanted to thank you so much for taking time to be with our group last night. All day long, I've heard from the ladies–it meant a lot to them–me too! I'm very grateful that you brought your wonderful insights into my/our lives.

Dana Marshall 

Thanks for a great morning program.

Our wonderful speaker, Jerry, overflowed with enthusiasm, eccentricity, humor, charm, seriousness, definitiveness and easily captured the audience with his message. I left the meeting feeling inspired, alive and charged with energy to look through glasses that bring me miracles, DAILY.


Dear Jerry,

Your motivational seminar was excellent; everyone at Margaritas has been incorporating what they learned in our work environment and I am sure outside of Margaritas as well. I know that I have been incorporating what I learned from your speech in my everyday life. I would love for you to let me know if you are ever speaking in the Boston area.

Amanda L. Lazaro


It was a joy to help bring your program to our staff. I believe you would be pleased to know that, in the wake of the election results, several staff members have cited ideas they recalled from your presentation as helping them to gain perspective and prepare to move on. So, double thanks to you!

All the best,

Jerry Posner is a gifted trainer and speaker. His presentations never fail to entertain, educate and "wow" his audiences. His programs are awesome! 

Annie Herbert
President, Valued Opinion Market Research

Jerry, you were great! 

I think you were just the person for the job and I have heard from many that they really enjoyed the two days.  Thanks for your patience with us, and your flexibility. 

I will certainly keep you in mind for a staff retreat speaker.

Rosanne DiStefano
President, Mass. Home Care

I thought the day was great and was very pleased to find out that everyone who attended enjoyed it as much as I had. Many said it was the best workshop or seminar they have ever attended.

Jerry helps individuals identify and use their power within. People get excited when they discover that they have unlimited potential for success. Attitudes change. Teamwork develops. Behaviors improve. We have seen the results in higher morale and better customer service. Those who have been through Jerry's program seem to have a greater desire to do things rights. His trainings can work for your company too....I'm positive!

John Mathers
General Manager, Hampton Inn, Natick, MA

In this day of increased work demands, you were able to provide us with strategies for managing stress, making positive choices, and using productive work habits.Through a positive, interactive approach, participants were able to understand your message while enjoying team-building activities with co-workers.

Dorothy Jackson,

Hi Jerry.  Just thought I'd write to tell you I'm getting a lot from your meetings. Customer service is what customers expect and deserve an you bring that through to us. I really enjoy your talks ... you're great!! I'm a manager of one of the stores in the Springfield area. I believe that customers come first and I do my best to make them happy so they will come back, and they do! I'm learning a lot from you, both as a manager and as a person in my own life. Thanks, Jerry.


Great conference on Thursday in Worcester. Haven't learned so much in a fun way in a long time.

Martie Barnes

Jerry - I wanted to practice some of my appreciation for today by thanking you for your talk the other day. I wasn't necessarily looking forward to two hours about fun, success and customer service but imagine my surprise when you offered us something quite profound!  

Dinah Starr

Dear Mr. Posner,

I just wanted to contact you to tell you that I have applied your "words of wisdom" and have had a positive outcome in my life because of it. I do thank you from the bottom of my heart for your inspiration.

Philomene Rivard

Hi Jerry!
Just thought you'd like to see that your program was the inspiration for a QE committee bulletin board project.  Staff response to your program was very positive.

Thanks again.

Mary Kinsell
Mystic Valley Elder Services
Malden, MA

Jerry, Thanks for the great job you did at the Mass Home Care retreat last week. I'm sure that we all took away important ideas for our agencies and ourselves.

Marilyn Travinski

Thank you for a memorable lecture at Canyon Ranch earlier in January. I've just gone through all the notes from my lectures there - yours left a lingering imprint - and am now on your website. It's nice to know I can go to your site now and then and get a "Posner pick-me-up."   

Thanks and regards.

Connie Nicolosi

I met you earlier this morning at Margaritas in Manchester. You may remember me as Donna Ponce or as the young woman who brought the donuts. I felt great after leaving your class and really appreciate the entire experience. 

I would just like to thank you again and I hope that you had a great time in Manchester with the crew from Margaritas. 

Donna Ponce

Dear Mr. Posner:

Just met you at the Convenience Plus meeting @ Crowne Plaza, and I really appreciated meeting with you, and attending your motivational 3 hour class!

Well, I can honestly say Mr. Posner that I learned much more than I ever imagined possible from that meeting.  Now, I can carry these few simple, yet effective tools with me to Europe, and really succeed.

Anyhow, I love your website, too! (Just checked it out real quick).  Ever teach in Europe?  You are a real winner Mr. Posner!

Thank you most sincerely! 
Christopher J. Zamisz

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for a great presentation yesterday.  My managers really enjoyed it and I'm sure it made an impact on many of them.

Great job!

I look forward to having you back soon and continue your seminars.

Thank You Very Much.

Joe Bertha,

Hi Jerry...

I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the seminar on Tuesday, 3/5 in Lakewood, NJ.  I learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the unique ways you got your message across.  I sure hope we meet again and perhaps sharing your methods with the other employees in our center.

Thanks again!

E. Windsor Lanes

Hi Jerry,

I wanted to thank you again for the very excellent and dynamic presentation you gave to us at the Berkshire Entrepreneurs Network meeting.

I love hearing "your life is what you make of it" speeches, and yours, about your personal experiences and  choices (and  the results of your choices) was so uplifting, because it truly comes from your heart.  You don't just say it, you live it, and it shows. I was mesmerized, and also felt so happy about my own growth, because I could relate to everything you were saying.  It  isn't always easy, but it is always worth the effort, and you made that concept so beautifully obvious.

I've been attending BEN meetings for a year and a half now, and believe me, the other night's atmosphere was more energized than I've ever seen it.   I hope you will return next year with another of your presentations.

Keep spreading the good word!                                     

Yvonne Borsody




My wife and I attended your workshop at Canyon Ranch during Thanksgiving week.  It was the most uplifting and motivational event of the week and I look forward to being with you again.  You may remember me:  I was the guy who dinged your bell in gratitude for your leadership and insights at the end of the lecture!  Keep up the good work.

Peace and joy.

Russ Long

Hi Jerry;

I recently attended your seminar "On The Front Line!" I must admit it was very empowering. I walked out of your seminar feeling like a new, improved person. I felt like I now have the knowledge to be the best I can be at my job.

Thank you!

Tara Johnson

Hello Jerry. I wanted to write in order to thank you for your work in Branford. I was in Branford right after your seminars, I spoke with old and new employees alike, and they all had nothing but praise for you and your seminar. Thanks again! 

Mark Parente

Dear Jerry,
I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful workshop on team building and conflict resolution you presented to our AmeriCorps members. It was a fun day and behind your back they were saying wonderful and positive things, "That guy has a lot of energy", "He really made sense", "What a good looking guy". Okay so I threw that last one in but seriously thanks again and the website is great. Will be sure to contact other AmeriCorps programs about your trainings.

Tammy Gage

Hello Jerry-
What a great web site. I am getting ready to open a restaurant in Wheeling, WV and was putting together some notes for a team building seminar for the staff. I gambled that you had a web site and sure enough, there it is. I wish that I could fly you down here and have you do this seminar for me but for right now, please take satisfaction in the fact that you are about to positively impact about 70 people in West Virginia. I miss your talks and think of you often. Keep having fun and be well.

Charlie Schlegel


I wanted to drop you a note to tell you that you gave me the motivation I needed to do something I thought I couldn't. In the winter of 1997 Turboprop East hired you for a motivational seminar for their employees, it was held at The Orchards restaurant (I think).

You went over topics of P.O.V., gave out inspirational quotes, etc......(I'll never forget the glasses).  Lastly you gave us a "Check from the Universe" to fill out with a goal.  Well I filled that check out for a "Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering" ..... (a big dream to fill) at the time I owned a house in North Adams, had a wife and one child at the time and I had no college education. Now I find myself in my third year of college at U-Mass Amherst, pursuing my Computer System Engineering degree with my wife, and two children. The Change was GREAT. We are doing well!!

Every now and then I look at that check I wrote back in 1997 and I smile and think of you. Thank you Jerry, you gave me that little extra push I needed to make the change that really has changed life for me and my family. 

David L. Rust

Hi Jerry,
I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that I feel that your recent seminar in Orono was, without a doubt, the most beneficial seminar that I have seen you give. I have attended your classes eight times. While I took something out of each one, the classes on May 8th really defined to me what these can be. The interaction and participation from the staff truly made the day. It seems that the classes are getting better and better. Thank you very much for driving so far to facilitate such a valuable (and spirited) discussion.
