"Well, our surveys say it was the best symposium we have hosted. No one left early, which is a tribute to Steve. He was our last speaker. I even had to chase people away from him who wanted to say thank you for your service, ask for an autograph, or picture or just shake his hand, so he could get to his plane. We thought Steve was great! He is genuine. His picture slides were good to be able to relate his words to the real scene. "
Mary Adams, US Army
"Steve Russell was by far THE BEST speaker to address our diverse group for Veterans Day in over 10 years. He was outstanding! His presentation on stage was powerful.
Steve captivated the entire audience of over 700 from high school freshmen to World War II veterans. His passionate speech in support of our troops and the discussion regarding the capture of Saddam Hussein is still the talk of the entire school. We are still receiving favorable comments from the military veterans who appreciated his candor and knowledge.
Steve has the ability to relate easily to individuals of any age. From the time he joined us for the Veterans reception to several hours later, he made everyone feel like they were his friend."

His humor, knowledge, and inspiring message -- combined with his own warm personality -- resulted in an event we will treasure forever.

Col. Steve Russell was a great addition to our conference. Everyone enjoyed the story and message that Col. Russell shared and expressed. He truly challenged our members to ask great questions and think outside of the box. You can tell the passion he shares in his message and his story, and that passion transcended to our members. I would highly recommend him!
