WS Services for the Blind All Staff Training DayI have heard so many compliments on your keynote presentation. Our entire staff thought you were very funny! I appreciated your tailoring your humor to our agency.

WS Department of Revenue - Very pleased with John Keister's presentation. He took the time to call ahead a couple of times to find out more about our organization, then tailored the keynote to our group. It was the best we have seen! He was personable, funny, spoke about events we knew and were connected to, he brought everyone into the conversation. People laughed and felt good about the work they do.

Suburban Cities Association - I have wanted to bring John Keister in for one of our membership meetings since the organization formally incorporated in the mid-90’s. The most frequent comment I heard after the meeting was, “Thank you for bringing him as a keynote. We needed to laugh.”

WA Department of Revenue - Excellent! John Keister was wonderful. He was our lunch time keynote speaker. The audience enjoyed his comedy and had a few really good laughs.
