TESTIMONIALS

 

“Leaders lead through their life stories. It is the one thing they truly own.  Leveraging their magical, musical talent, Song Sessions creates a powerful metaphor for leadership, helping participants craft their own stories through the creative act of story-telling in songwriting.  If you want to write better notes, lyrics and melodies of your own life story, learn how to write an inspirational song.” – Joe LeBoeuf, Ph.D. COL USA, Retired; Professor, Fuqua School of Business; Coach K Center on Leadership and Ethics – Duke University

 

Billy, Monty and Anna exceeded our expectations!  We had questions as to how effectively the trio could execute their program in a 115-min keynote, but they nailed it!  Our clients couldn’t say enough great things about their time with Song Sessions: it was entertaining, educational and fun.  I would highly recommend Song Sessions to anyone looking for a distinct keynote experience. – Jason Emanis, Marketing Manager, Bridgeway Software Inc.

 

“We had the opportunity to work with Song Sessions at our Business Retreat. We could not be more pleased with the final product from the initial creative brainstorming stage, composition and production. Every aspect was carefully thought out and executed by Song Sessions. Words cannot express our gratitude for such a wonderful event!” – Jeff Dyke, EVP Operations, Sonic Automotive

 

“I first became acquainted with Song Sessions at Gargiulo Vineyards in Napa Valley with my Los Angeles-based YPO (Young Presidents’ Organization) group.  Their keynote is always a hit at events in the YPO/WPO community.  In addition, during the acoustic performance you could hear a pin drop as we listened to Anna, Billy and Monty sing their songs and tell their stories. However, before the event was through, we were on stage with “The Song Star Band” jamming to classic tunes with some of our musician members taking turns on guitar. Everyone was shaking a tambourine or singing along. It was the highlight of our entire Napa weekend.” – David Martin, YPO-WPO International; Past Chairman, CEO and President

 

“I think song sessions is a great, unique opportunity for executives to come together to think about unblocking their creativity and coming up with a song that really represents who they are either as a company or as a team.”  – Tamar Elkeles, VP learning and Development, Qualcomm

 

The feedback has been great on Song Sessions! Our guests were fascinated by the process and thrilled with the results.” – Garrett O’Doherty, Synergy Meeting Solutions / Pearson-English

 

“Having been the CEO of several companies including Sunkist, I have found that Song Sessions is one of the most powerful experiences for senior management.  We have all used speakers on various subjects but none of them come close to making the impact of Song Sessions.”  –  Jeff Gargiulo, Gargiulo Vineyards, Proprietor

 

“I was first exposed to the creative genius of Song Sessions three years ago at a Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO) Regional Conference in Napa, California.  It was the keynote resource for our morning CEO education session.  We were told the audience would create an original song during their one-hour presentation.  My skepticism soon turned to interest as I watched an original song created from scratch with the audience’s participation.  I was so impressed by the creative process…outstanding!  Song Sessions cannot be beat!”  –  Frank A. Baer III, CEO, Commercial Insurance Services, Incoming 2013/2014 WPO Regional Chair (East Central Region), Incoming 2013/2014 WPO International Board Member

 

Show me, don’t tell me…these words come from Monty Powell and refer to writing lyrics that really convey a story.  He talks about his special ‘image ladder’ cure for writer’s block, how to get a foot in the business and many, many other things. Get ready to be inspired. Happy songwriting!”  – Toontrack.com
