What others are saying about Scott’s Presentations:
I was looking to find a facilitator that could help build upon our teamwork, and help each of us get to know each other better for interpersonal development. Scott met with me in advance to research our needs, and he took into account the needs that each of our staff put together and created a wonderful afternoon workshop for us. He is funny, can relate well to all types of people, and has great relevant programming and activities. I would highly recommend Scott for an employee motivational event.

I just finished watching the videos of the safety demonstration board trainings you led for us. You did a wonderful job as our emcee and lead presenter! Great pacing, delivery, and integration/teamwork with everyone involved. You really knew your stuff and made the information accessible to the audience.
Thank you very much for all your good work on this. You will be the first person we call when another project of this type comes along.

The Municipal Clerks Association of New Jersey was indeed fortunate to have Scott Marcus as a keynote speaker at our Annual Education Conference. He was witty, insightful and kept us laughing while at the same time providing helpful information that we were able to take home with us for use in our daily lives. It was a pleasure working with him to set up the sessions as he was cooperative and had great suggestions on how to make sure we had the best sessions. He took the time to speak to some of our members so he was able to tailor the sessions in a manner that was appropriate for his audience. He was great! I would highly recommend him.

The Wilsonville Chamber of Commerce was very fortunate to have Scott present at our October Successful Business University on a trip through Oregon. The presentation was top-notch and our members greatly enjoyed the humor, stories, and lessons learned. We had a number of new faces in the audience that day, and Scott’s presentation assisted in showing them the quality and value of our speaker series. I look forward to working with Scott on a number of future projects and would refer him to any organization!

All I can say is WOW! Your keynote address to Women’s Connection 2011 was such a hit. You now have us all striving for imperfection. Thanks so much Scott, You Are The Best.

The training was enjoyed by everyone – and they wanted more! It is unusual for everyone to enjoy a training. We usually have one or two that didn’t like something. I was surprised by the interaction … I guess you have the right touch to get them involved. I greatly recommend you. You are the best trainer we have had in years. thanks for coming and you were very much enjoyed by everyone and we learned a lot.

Scott delivered what he promised as both a workshop presenter and plenary speaker at our volunteer management conference. He is an engaging speaker who kept the participants’ interest and attention. They appreciated the practical information he presented in an entertaining manner. Scott was a refreshing addition to our conference.
We were so pleased with the day’s events, especially your ability to engage a group of over 100 highly active 18-25 year olds. The corpsmembers enjoyed your program and many have shared with us that they are using the things you taught them to help make their time in the CCC more productive. Your humor, patience, and relevant message made the day a great success.
Scott brought life and laughter to our convention and won over even the hardest of skeptics. I know this because I could see it in their faces from the front of the room. They were mesmerized with his upbeat and interactive presentation. Thanks and I can’t wait till the next time! Excellent Job!
Scott offers an engaging program – engaging in the sense that the participants can relate to his humor, to his stories, to his activities, and to his message. As I looked around the room to gauge how he was being received and if my staff was really listening or just putting in their time, I saw folks who laughed when it was appropriate to laugh, nod in agreement when he struck a common cord with them, and sit up and lean forward completely absorbed in his message. At times, the whole room “clicked” in their response to him. This was exactly what the doctor ordered. They needed to hear how they can manage their attitudes and habits to positively affect not only themselves but their personal and professional relationships.
I engaged with Scott “Q” Marcus to develop a workshop for our overworked, tired, and stressed IT department. Everyone was skeptical about bringing in a speaker to learn about handling stress, personal interactions, and overall self management; We were blown away! Scott connected with our entire staff. I had never seen my staff so excited and energized about being able to cope with their work environment. Scott was able to illustrate key techniques that the staff could, and would use. It was fabulous! Thanks a million Scott!
My staff thoroughly enjoyed Scott “Q” Marcus’s assembly. He was witty, wise and infused a well-balanced message into his presentation. Rapt attention was paid to Scott as he described the importance of communicating and developing relationships within the entire staff. His role playing portion added humor, real life situations and lessons learned. Staff who normally did not offer to participate found themselves joining in. Mr. Marcus also gave steps to conflict resolution and how to derive consensus so as to function in a healthy manner at the workplace. His message of taking one small step today is pertinent to people of all ages in all walks of life. As a result of Scott’s in-service my staff felt the school year got off to a much better start.
As I returned to my desk, staff members with a twinkle in their eyes and a smile on their face stopped me and told me how much they enjoyed the presentation. As a manager, it truly is a reward to know that I have been involved in something that has made the staff feel better about themselves and the work they do.
Many of the staff was impressed by the website and survey. Other speakers have presented for our department and have not done sufficient prework to really understand what we do for the residents of Contra Costa County.
I would like to thank-you for making one of our computer “ down days” truly in to an “Amazing day”
