Your keynote presentation Think Like a Spy: Identity Theft Prevention was particularly well-received and a key reason why the vast majority of attendees expressed that this year's conference was the best and most informative to date. Your personal experiences with identity theft and humorous approach to this serious subject gave attendees a keen insight as to how to prevent identity theft for Service members and families.
Your presentation was outstanding! We continue to receive numerous positive comments about your presentation, which our audience found highly inspiring, informative, and fun. As a result of your presentation, we've seen important progress in employees' awareness toward our agency's goal of protecting sensitive personal information from harms, such as identity theft, through increased employee awareness. Your memorable tips for safeguarding data at home will certainly lead to safer data at FDIC.
John Sileo's presentation to the first responder community on behalf of the Department of Homeland Security was exceptional in both content and entertainment value. It is my pleasure to highly recommend John for any speaking engagement that demands actionable solutions to everyday problems delivered in a highly engaging manner.
John Sileo did an excellent job. Very energetic, accommodating both our goals: helping the employee at home and also bringing those skills to the working environment.
Your professionalism and knowledge was apparent in both our interactions regarding logistics as well as during your talk. Identity Theft Jujitsu was indeed the perfect fit for the opening of our conference thanks to its blend of applicability to our subject matter, your eloquent delivery and inclusion of physical movement. Our participants were engaged and motivated to take lessons learned and apply them both in their personal lives as well as to their work. I would indeed recommend this presentation to others in my field.
Timely! Who thought this incredibly hot topic could also be so much fun? Our attendees raved about John Sileo's humorously interactive training style and how he applied it to such vital skills as fraud deflection, laptop protection, and safe social networking. Inspiring! We hired John because of his arresting personal story of surviving severe identity theft and data breach; we'd bring him back for his depth of knowledge, refreshing insights and engaging performance style.
Fantastic. John Sileo was an exceptional speaker.
John Sileo did an outstanding presentation for our Annual Meeting for the Credit Union Association of Wyoming. Our participants felt the information presented about identity theft was very timely for their members and that it was very personal.
