“Michael Smerconish was the keynote speaker for our Mock Primary Election in 2012. His message about engaging in a balanced political dialogue was compelling and resonated with our entire school community. He went above and beyond to provide a terrific educational experience for our students, who also gained a greater appreciation of the role of the media in politics and government.”

“Michael spoke at our Annual Conference & Expo, to an audience of homeowners and managers in condo and homeowner associations. His speech focused on the polarization in politics and the increasing lack of civil discourse in America. Our audience loved Michael’s presentation and found it extremely relevant to their every day experiences. One of our attendees called his speech “Absolutely one of the best keynote addresses I have heard. Intelligent, engaging and thought-provoking.” Nothing makes a conference organizer more satisfied than attendees who believe the event was engaging and thought-provoking. Smerconish delivered on all counts.”

“Michael Smerconish served up an outstanding keynote for our Villanova Business Leaders Forum. He was engaging throughout – a perfect blend of humor and analysis to provide his perspective on the increasingly partisan political landscape. The talk was fantastically well-received, without exception, by audience members representing the full range of political orientations – a feat unto itself. Perhaps no less important, Michael was a gracious and thoughtful guest. He spent considerable time and effort understanding our event and making it special. An all-around home run!”

“Michael spoke at our monthly breakfast briefing on the upcoming election, how it reflects the increasingly polarized state of U.S. politics today, and the root causes of this polarization. Our audience is primarily made up of merger & acquisition professionals, including people in private equity, investment banking, commercial banking, accounting and law. A decent portion of our audience inevitably is disappointed when we have people speak on politics, because the speaker usually leans one way or the other politically. Michael, however, was a breath of fresh air! Not only did he explain the current polarization in a bipartisan manner, perhaps of more import, he did so with an up-tempo, engaging and humorous delivery. I received many compliments from our members, who are typically hard to please, and would heartily recommend Michael for anyone considering an event speaker.”

“Our Organization’s event planning committee was excited to have Michael Smerconish as our keynote speaker for our years largest event. We were thrilled with the mix of 45 minutes of humor and political insight that Michael provided. He possess a unique view from the inside of the political reporting process. Had we not gone to the podium during his Q &A there is no telling how long he would have continued. He blended with our group and made everyone feel very comfortable. Our expectations were far exceeded and the positive feedback from our attendees only confirms Michael was the right choice for our event. I would recommend Michael to anyone considering an event speaker, regardless of your political views.”

“Smerconish was fresh, entertaining and engaging. A genuine storyteller who connected with our audience from start to finish, Michael walked our audience behind the scenes of the media, between the aisles of Washington and into the everyday life of Michael Smerconish.

We walked away with a better understanding of the polarizing views dividing our nation and a deeper appreciation that not every issue has to be black and white, us versus them. Most of all, we discovered that the simple conversational things about our lives are what matter most and make for the most interesting dialogue.

Our attendees have seen many keynotes, and we wanted to give them something slightly different, something they haven’t seen or heard before. Michael gave us all of that and more. As a result, both NASCO and Michael have expanded our fan base.”

“Michael Smerconish was very well-received at our event in Chicago earlier this month. In terms of content, he is a master of weaving together big ideas and down-to-earth examples. As for delivery, he is everything you would hope for from a talk radio guy: articulate and silver-tongued. He was easy to work with onsite, and our audience found his remarks insightful and entertaining.”

“As this year’s program chairman, for our Annual Dinner speaker, the non-partisan political organization, TIGER BAY of Volusia County (FL), I couldn’t have been more pleased than with Michael Smerconish. At the cocktail party, before the meeting started, Michael was very personable and engaging with our members, something they appreciated tremendously. By the time I introduced him, and called him up on the podium, most of the people in the audience felt they already knew him.

Michael ranks right at the top of some of the best speakers we’ve had over the last twenty-five years. You can tell what makes him such a terrific orator, is that he really does his homework, knows his material and doesn’t fumble around for words. And, to put the icing on the cake, he’s very humorous as well.

For any organization that is looking for a spectacular program, Michael Smerconish can surely fill the bill.”

Michael’s involvement with our event not only elevated the overall conference, but elevated our association as well. I strongly recommend having Michael as keynote speaker.”

“The Carolinas Credit Union League wanted an unparalleled experience at our 2015 Annual Meeting, including a full day of speakers. With a 2.5-hour block on politics and advocacy, it was important that we begin strongly. From introductory video to his final response during Q&A, Michael Smerconish delivered. His expert perspective and direct, entertaining style brought and kept attention on what often is a starchy, analytical, and polarizing subject. Michael’s material was up-to-the-minute and showed he thought as much our audience and bringing them together as we did of his insight.

By most every account our participants called this our best annual meeting ever, and we have Michael to thank for such great momentum through the advocacy block and the rest of the schedule. As one participant shared in an evaluation, “I could have listened to him all day!”

“Michael executed a terrific keynote speech at the Regional Conference of the New Jersey and Delaware Valley Chapters of the Healthcare Information Management System Society (HIMSS). Given the heavy IT audience, we particularly appreciated the significant amount of data that Michael presented to reinforce the content about causes of the polarized political environment in Washington and his well-informed insights into the 2016 presidential election cycle. Enhanced by great visuals, Michael delivered his presentation in both an informative and entertaining way. We strongly recommend Michael for other organizations looking for a dynamic speaker.”
