Here is what people are saying about Al Getler as a Leader, a Speaker, an Entertainer and a Blogger

“Al Getler is a superb speaker, performer, or master of ceremonies. While he specializes in leadership, customer service, and the power of personal branding, and has deep knowledge and experience in each of these areas that he weaves into his presentations; at heart he is a showman, quite capable of working with any organization on any topic in front of any crowd. He is personable, charismatic, entertaining, and on point. Call him up and hire him—you’ll be very glad you did!” – Dr. Lane Glenn, President, Northern Essex Community College

 “Al Getler is a true leader, an insightful business person, and a fabulous speaker! He is smart, humble, funny, insightful, personable, well-read, and always impressive. Would definitely recommend him as a speaker — the topic of leadership is his passion!, event host, or business partner.” – Anne Rendle, CEO, The Northeast Association of Realtors

“Al Getler is one of the funniest guys I know, an outstanding public speaker and a great ventriloquist. Having said that, it is Al’s leadership, compassion and accessibility that make him the success he is today. I wholeheartedly, and without reservation, recommend Al and endorse all of his efforts. This is one great community leader and a resource for all of us.” – Raymond J. Cannon, Jr., Attorney – Elder Law, Asset Protection, and Estate Planning

“Al provides a fresh start to one’s day through his interactive Leadership blog. The difference to me, in Al’s approach is that he helps one to navigate the leadership role with real, actionable tips. When “leadership” is most often portrayed in tenuous, ethereal tones that paint a very vague portrait, Al shares his experience as a boss, his role as a father and husband, a friend, and a regular community customer to make his blog down to earth and most importantly—relevant. Often personal, funny, and humble, one feels like Al’s “been there” and has emerged with humor and grace intact. Al’s messages are a comforting and encouraging start to the day.” – Megan Loughney, Associate Executive Director, Challenge Unlimited at Ironstone Farm

Over the years, he’s made numerous presentations to newsmedia executives and, in each case, he provided them with game changing ideas, new ways of thinking and actionable best practices. But Al is more than a great teacher. He wins over his audiences with a “we’re all in this together” attitude, deep respect and collegial demeanor.

“Al is multi-talented professional, ranging from a Newspaper Publisher to a Corporate entertainer. As the Circulation Director at CNC, Al was ahead of the staff with innovative and motivating programs aimed at increasing overall circulation and advertising numbers. Al’s vision is not singularly focused though. While he is a master at managing company objectives, Al also maintains personal relationships and considers the best interests of his staff. A prime example of Al’s flexibility is his highly successful ventriloquism talents and corporate and family event performance experiences. Al is not only serious and focused on the job at hand, but he has an honest and real-life sense of humor that transcends and enriches all his personal and professional endeavors.” – Peter Campbell, UI Web Designer – Freelance at AQ Websites

I have repeatedly witnessed Al connect deeply with an audience, unite them under a specific message or initiative and walk along side of them, while easily integrating specific skills to leave a lasting value. His listening skills with a live audience are unsurpassed. He possesses such unique qualities as a speaker, comedian and discussion leader or MC, so that the audience becomes a dynamic element and continues to contribute throughout the presentation. The words authentic and genuine leader best describe Al, for he has demonstrated his true motives of helping others achieve their goals and seeking solutions for increasing their performance during his role as speaker, trainer, MC and leader of business and non-profits.
