What are they saying about Jack Fertig?


  • "At the end of our convention, people were still talking about Jack's talk three days earlier. They were even quoting some of the things he said. He helped put their roles in our organization into a clearer perspective while making them laugh at the same time. He's the best speaker we've ever had."
    Sue Pitt Anderson, Former Olympian & Resource Development Specialist, USA Swimming
  • "Your talk was inspirational and was right on target for what we were looking for.  Your stories were entertaining, your 'flip cards' engaging and . . . people left with a spring in their step (ready) to make a difference." Josh Stein, Director, Jewish Federation of Portland
  • "Jack, your seminar with my students was fantastic. Both the students who attended, and especially the teachers who were watching, were engaged and excited the entire time. Many of the kids who were in attendance were not 'ideal' students. However, you kept their attention and taught them important principles. Even the kids who didn't want to learn were hoping to get a card flipped in their direction while the kids who did were absolutely mesmerized. Keep it up!" Dave Dooley, Activities Director, BHS"
  • We brought Jack back to stimulate thought. There couldn't have been a better presenter." Sieg Fischer, President/CEO, Valley Yellow Pages, Fresno
  • "As an intense student of life, Jack's innovative ideas are often light years ahead of his colleagues and his speaking ability the envy of all those who shared a dais with him." Mike DePalmer, Sr., Co-Founder, Bollettieri Tennis Academy Member, National Tennis Hall of Fame
  • "If the new millenium is the age of communication, Jack will be a man of the new age! No one communicates better than he does!" Ralph Greene, Former Vice President, US General Manager Nike Sportswear
  • "Dynamic storyteller, incredibly witty, in depth research, superbly organized - a must speaker for any company that wants to improve its bottom line." Jimmy Klotz, President, fms bonds, inc.
  • "Jack delivers his message with a double dose of humor, but he's more than funny. He probably understands people better than anyone I've known and that insight alone makes him worth the price of admission. I don't know anyone who's not in the people business, so Jack's message is of value to everyone." Mark A. Dyer, Founder, Taymar Ventures, former Director of Marketing, NASCAR  
  • "As always, you did a phenomenal job capturing the attention of your audience. I could tell by the looks on the student-athletes' faces how intrigued they were with the information you were sharing with them." Sarah Jackson, Former Coordinator of Speakers, Buchanan H.S., Clovis,CA
  • "When we brought Jack in to speak to our sales staff, we wanted him to make a difference. His fresh and innovative ideas exceeded our expectations." Mike DerManouel Sr., President & CEO, MD Manouel Insurance Agency, Inc.
  • "Jack's ability to design a motivational message that specifically related to our employees was very effective. He was truly inspiring while being down to earth." Pete Shubin, Owner, Goodguys Tire & Auto Repair
  • "When you listen to a speaker, you want to be informed, entertained and motivated to action. Listening to Jack, you experience all three." George Raveling, Former Basketball Coach, Washington State, Iowa, USC
