“You Saved My Life”

“I wanted to tell you that you saved my life 10 years ago, but I’m sure that I’m not the first to tell you that. One of the last things that you always say at the end of your sex/abstinence speech is that if you were the victim of molestation, rape or incest you still have everything because you never gave your heart, and that sentence alone saved me. You see I was sent to snowball because my parents didn’t know what else to do with me for the weekend, it was really the last place I wanted to be, I had planned to kill myself that weekend and the last thing I wanted to do was go be with people that wouldn’t understand where I was coming from.”

“You were there that night, and you talked. And to this day I don’t know exactly when my turning point was but the words that I heard that I still had my heart despite the fact that my virginity was physically gone stuck with me, you are right what he took from me is never going to be back, but I still have my heart and I still have what I want and that means more.”

“He Really Cares About Us”

“In my role as a school social worker, I wear many different hats in the Consolidated High School District. Over the past 10 years, you have been gracious enough to present to our parents, teachers, Operation Snowball leaders, and students who are defined as ‘at-risk’ for educational success.”

“Whenever contacted, you review our needs to determine what presentation best fits the goal and theme of our event. After much discussion, a few years ago you actually created a new presentation to expand your list of offered session topics. Thanks again for your commitment to respond to our needs … your impact once again was amazing! Some anecdotal information from students has included: ‘he shows he really cares about us!,’ ‘Steve uses humor to make his message make more sense,’ and my favorite, ‘Steve Troglio rocks!’.”

“Please feel free to encourage any educational professional to contact me directly as a professional reference. Thanks for making a difference with our youth!”

“A Wonderful Role Model for the Students and Athletes”

“I had the opportunity to see him lecture my Health class at (Illinois) High school for the last twenty five years. In my thirty plus years of being in the teaching field I would say he is by far the best speaker I have ever had. I have not met anyone with his poise and presence in front of the students.”

“He is always enthusiastic in front of the classes and looks so relaxed and comfortable. He relates extremely well to the students and it is obvious that he truly cares about them. They are truly attentive to his words, and love how entertaining he is. Other teachers marvel at his wonderful message and how engaged he is with the students. I have never met anyone, and I mean anyone, that wasn’t totally impressed with Steve. Steve Troglio is definitely the top motivational speaker that I have come across in all my years in the educational field.”

“I can not emphasize enough how much I believe that Steve Troglio is a wonderful speaker and motivator. Most importantly, I see someone who is a wonderful role model for the students and athletes he will come in contact with. The education system needs more speakers like him. Some speakers survive the educational system; Steve Troglio enhances the educational system. I would place my reputation of 30 years in the field recommending him to any school that considers him for an engagement in their school.”

“The Most Thought Provoking”

“I was happy to learn that you are still engaged in the important work of encouraging young people to have the strength and courage to take charge of their lives. In the numerous teen traffic safety programs conducted by the Circuit Court in the late 1990’s, your presentation was consistently singled out by the attendees as the most thought provoking segment of the seminar. My experience suggests that the need to confront youngsters with an honest view of reality in an entertaining presentation remains extremely important in efforts to reduce harmful risk taking behavior.”

“I will happily respond to any inquiries by sharing my observations and impressions of your work with our safety program.”

“Never Ceases to Amaze Me”

“I have known Steve Troglio for about ten years. He was referred to me by school administrators who had heard him speak to teens. With that recommendation, I have asked him to speak (entertain) at our yearly safe driving conference….the evaluations and feedback from the young adults has consistently rated him the most effective of all our presenters. I have heard him speak many times and he never ceases to amaze as to how he can get the crowd involved in some new way.”
