"Quite simply, excellent in every respect. The balance of humor, shtick, and seriousness was just right. When Socrates answered the questioner who earnestly asked: 'How do you keep love?', it felt as though he was penetrating to the depths of what it means to be human."

Brooklyn Public Library

"Socrates has impelled us to enhanced performance by showing us how to manage by asking questions, how to mentor, how to embody values, and how to have integrity. An unparalleled lesson in leadership!"

The Corporate University

"Your performance provided an unforgettable experience for our attendees. His challenges to our people stirred their minds and hearts."

Muriel Banquer Annual Lecture, New Haven (co-sponsored by Yale)

"Both of your appearances here were wonderful successes. For a university audience Socrates offers history, philosophy, and a lesson in connecting his teachings to our daily lives. It is engaging, educational, and (heaven forbid for a Law School), FUN!"

Suffolk University Law School (Bonston

"Socrates was the perfect speaker for our entire staff, from senior administrators and throughout the ranks. He made us walk taller as we realized how we work in his great tradition."

"The evening was a perfect balance of theatrics and information. It was amazing to watch you transport our members back to ancient Greece. It was a wonderful event -- and you were an absolute pleasure to work with."

The Princeton Club (NY)

"The best best evening we had in my entire tenure as chair of our program committee. Socrates made us laugh, gasp, think -- and commit ourselves afresh to self-development and community involvement. BRAVO, Socrates!"

"Socrates provided a terrific training event for our executives and managers. The sessions themselves were relevant and compelling, and in the aftermath, the majority of the attendees have adopted Socratic strategies which have improved our communication, creativity, teamwork, and morale."

"The most dramatic, successful, and well-covered event we've ever had at the store. You did a wonderful job!"
