RE: Humor Consultants, Phil and Susan Sorentino

We had the privilege of working with Phil and Susan, Humor Consultants, in January to present to our employees and community members on “Humor: Your Key to Enjoying Your Work, Your Family and Yourself.”

Phil is a dynamic, passionate, thought provoking, and a catalyst for positive change in the lives of the folks that have the opportunity to see and hear his presentations. Our audience was energized, and more importantly, inspired to appreciate all the wonder in our lives and how we can make a difference in the lives of others. We all felt Phil’s passion and his genuine interest in all who attended.

Working with Susan to coordinate the presentation was easy, professional and likely the most organized process I’ve experienced.

If you are interested in making a real difference in the lives of the people in your organization, contact Phil and Susan.

Best Regards, and as Phil would say “Have Fun!”

Listening to Phil Sorentino is like listening to Robin Williams, Dr. Robert Schuller, and Warren Buffett all at the same time!

The preparation for the events was the smoothest yet! Your prompt response and attention to the specific goals we wanted to achieve from our rallies is appreciated. While we all enjoyed the humor, we all left with a serious understanding of what providing high quality customer service means in enhancing customer loyalty. You had a unique approach to delivering our message that helped spread the word when it came time to implement in our branch environment. We look forward to working with you again soon.

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for your involvement in the Ohio Region Assistant Managers Convention “tour.” Over the last couple of weeks, I have heard wonderful comments about the ideas you presented to the group. Your ability to relate to the audience’s needs and experiences was felt by everyone who attended. Bringing the convention to our managers was a team effort and your role on our team was invaluable to our success.


We recently enlisted Phil Sorentino of Humor Consultants Inc. to present to our entire
leadership team during our quarterly management retreat. We wanted a presenter that could send a powerful message regarding balancing work and personal life. In addition, he spoke of leadership qualities and teambuilding strategies. What was unique was his ability to make people laugh and feel good about the day. We received many positive comments from the retreat participants who thoroughly enjoyed the day, left feeling energized and carrying a powerful message to share with their staff members. We would recommend Phil Sorentino to your organization if you want to learn and have fun!

I just finished listening to Phil’s CD. Wow! An engaging hour and half that left me setting down some action step. Brilliantly presented. Simple. Straight forward. Beneficially useful. Entertaining. Insightful. Immediately actionable. Totally aligned with the message of aggregation. These are just a few of the words that come to mind. Thanks for the inspiration.

Phil, you did it again! It has been a year and a half since you helped us design, create and implement, as you called it, “Our Encouragers Retreat.” We are all Encouragers versus Leaders. So, it made sense to see if you could help us with our 2009 planning session and wow, did you help.
From the title, “Work Smart, Have Fun & Make Money™ – Being Strong in 2009,” you created a process that was built from our front line up through our Encouragers, to the practice session with each department head, to the full day. We are thrilled. We know 2009 will present challenges and we know with your help, we are positioned to meet them and prosper.
