Dear Mike Marino, Jr. Permit me to thank you for an excellent presentation that was well received at our convention in New Orleans. Your personal touch in speaking strategically to owners of Precision Tune Auto Care Centers, about issues they're concerned with hit its target. Indeed, this is best displayed by our Baton Rouge franchisee who has asked you to address his staff in like manner.

Mike, Your speech for Hospitality International at the Hotel Monteleone was just wonderful. I passed on an email to our Director of Membership, Keith Haggerty, letting him know how motivating, informational and enthusiastic you were and we are fortunate enough to have you as a member of our New Orleans Metropolitan Convention and Visitors Bureau. 
Thanks so much for the book, "Success is a team effort"!

Dear Mr. Marino,

I truly appreciate the excellent presentation that you gave to my students who are enrolled in the College and Career Success Skills course at Delgado Community College. Your remarks about the love of knowledge really resonated with them, as demonstrated by their comments, as follows:

The guest speaker was great! He gave me motivation to keep going. My favorite part was when he talked about “the six personal gifts to a better life.” “It was late in the afternoon; I had a hard day at work, his speech kept me alert. He grabbed my attention with the phrase---“snap out of it!”---a great way to continue through life, which is not always easy, but if a person continues to try and accomplish goals, they will reach them.”

I learned to keep going…. if you don’t get what you want at first time, persist.” “I liked Mr. Marino’s energy.” “Really gave everyone something to think about.” “I like that he gave me my marbles back!”

Mr. Marino was awesome. I really like the way he said that everything that is meant to be will find you.” “Powerful” “Enjoyable” “Entertaining” “Very inspirational speaker” “Cool Person” “He got right to the point.” “Mr. Marino kept the audience alive.”

So, there you are, Mr. Marino, you really made a difference to the students. I consider you a New Orleans gem. You served me and my students very well.

Thank you so much.

My Best,

Deborah A. Kohler, M.A., A.P.R.

Dear Mike,

I thank you for being our Keynote Speaker when our convention came to New Orleans in January. Your presentation was light-hearted and witty yet still conveyed the strong message we wanted our franchises to hear.

It was made all the more interesting by your use of wonderful handouts and visuals. Our staff loved your PowerPoint presentation. The room for improvement is still the greatest room in the world. From all the reviews, you were well received by everyone. We will hire you again in the future as our company continues to grow. Please feel free to use my name as a reference.

Dear Mike:

Thank you for agreeing to make a presentation on such short notice to our annual NALS Conference in New Orleans in February. It was well received by the group. It is obvious that you reflect heavily on your past life experiences and have a natural gift for being able to generalize those experiences into meaningful stories for others to ponder. I particularly appriciate your positive God focused attitude. Best wishes for continued success in all you do. Sincerely, John R. Johnson

Dear Mr. Marino:

It is with deep pleasure that we write to thank you for your refreshing and informative talk to the Sisters at the General Assembly at our Motherhouse on Saturday, October 18, 2008. Your delightful presentation gave us much to enjoy, and to ponder.

We listened with expectation as you grabbed us with your memorable lines: “If you want to make God laugh, have plans” and “Nothing is more powerful on earth than prayers.”

Thanks for the stories, and historical facts about the slaves of New Orleans, who bleached and granulated sugar, and built big houses without a nail.

More importantly, thanks for the tips on how to invite vocations. “Don’t beg,” you said, “invite and nurture. Vocations go where they are invited and stay where they are nurtured.” We agree totally that there will be no point in canonizing Mother Henrietta Deville, without followers. We are committed to invite with passion. Our deepest gratitude,

Sisters of the Holy Family Sister Eva Regina Martin

Dear Mike,

We wanted something special to present to our clients regarding the history and culture of New Orleans while entertaining at the Cuvee' Restaurant on September 25th and when we found you we discovered a gold mine.

Your characteristic style was delightfully engaging and packed with interesting details of New Orleans’ 300 year history! Our Yankee group was very impressed and even the wait staff made mention of how edified they were listening to you. Thank you for making it such a memorable evening for all of us.

Best regards, Stay Well Health Management John Tarbuck, CEO Stay Well St. Paul MN 55121-2520
