“I first discovered Tony’s work through Sierra Boggess’ website. I’ve never seen a better actor website, so I asked Tony to speak about website design fundamentals at my annual PromoteU conference. What he delivered was a business masterclass! Tony has an outstanding way of educating, inspiring and entertaining. My team came to me saying how many our attendees loved his talk and wanted him to come back again next year. And the staff and myself all learned a few things too! If you're looking for an expert on how to build your business and your brand online, Tony is your guy.Read More
"Musical Theatre Educators' Alliance was fortunate enough to have Tony present for us at our annual conference in San Diego in 2016. Everyone was so impressed and enamored with his knowledge and his presentation that we commissioned him to help us with a major organizational rebrand in 2017 and then we invited him to speak as a special guest at our conference in 2019 at NYU. I also personally contracted him to do a Skype lecture for my students when I was Head of Musical Theatre at Shenandoah Conservatory. Tony is always brilliant. He is always ahead of the curve. He is so easy to work with. And he knows the business as well as anyone. I cannot recommend him highly enough, for personal work or for a company--Tony can do it all!"Read More
“Tony Howell’s presentation at the Musical Theatre Educators’ Alliance Conference in NY was incredibly informative and appreciated by educators from all over the world. He presents his work in a way that feels extremely inclusive and nonintimidating. It is clear he genuinely wants to make a difference in our lives and is passionate about his company. I plan to bring him to campus soon to share his knowledge with our musical theatre students so that I can better prepare them for the industry today.”Read More
“The Tony Howell Method is nothing less than a miracle that’s been waiting to happen for us all for a long, long time. As a husband/father/teacher/performer/director/choreographer/Tony nominated Broadway veteran, the most miraculous thing of all is that Tony discovered this brilliant method by being open and by challenging himself to go deep into his own artist consciousness. The Tony Howell Method happened because he began asking himself very specific questions relating to who he is and why he wants to do this work. Let Tony take you down your very own yellow brick road so that your ‘somewhere over the rainbow’ becomes a real place where you can create your very own method of artistry.”
-Lara Teeter, The Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Webster University, St. Louis, MORead More
”After working with Tony on my website, I realized that my student singers at Spotlight on Opera needed his wisdom! Tony worked with our young artists for a week and they were thrilled with his workshop. He has a great presentation, very well-organized, and he is an engaging, energetic speaker. Having Tony as part of our faculty added tremendous value to our program and we hope to have him back next year!”
-Cindy Sadler, Artist + Entrepreneur, Shreveport, LARead More
“Tony's passion and expertise in social media are unmatched. Not only did he come prepared with his invaluable insight, but he had designed a handout to keep students engaged and interacting, and allowed them to take these important talking points with them for future reference. We received glowing feedback from the students that they had learned so much from this discussion and were anxious to implement it into their career preparations. This class was one of our most well-received and we owe much of that to the knowledge and expertise of Mr. Tony Howell.”

"You did a marvelous job and the workshop was very well-received and fascinating. Knocked our collective socks off!"

"You're positive, authentic and connect well with the students—you invite us in. You've packaged your presentation in such a way that it's accessible and affordable. I like that it's for the performer. It's exciting to hear from someone who's one of us—someone who's actually been on stage!"
-Tony Horne, Associate Professor, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WIRead More
"Tony’s presentation on creative social media was outstanding in every way—highly organized, truly engaging and inspiring. His approach to building and managing a professional career is smart, exciting, useful. Thanks to Tony, our students now have the tools to navigate the professional world with confidence."
-Rick Barbour, Department Chair, University of Denver, Denver, CORead More
"The presentation was informative and eye opening. I don't see how a keynote like this couldn't be relevant to anybody in business—whether the business is yourself or a product. It was absolutely applicable because it's the way that media is going. I didn't realize how important it would be."
-Mariann Cook, Associate Professor, Rider University, Lawrenceville, NJRead More
Tony certainly has a knack for making it look easy, sound easy and doable. To me, this is the future. It's like being an actor without a headshot. It's very appropriate for colleges, graduate schools, even doctoral programs—probably different disciplines within the colleges."
-Anne Lewis, Associate Professor, DeSales University, Center Valley, PARead More
"I hate most things about ‘actor marketing’ and those people who typically ‘teach’ it, selling actors things they don’t need, like automated postcards that look like junk mail and self-descriptive adjective vomit. It’s all garbage, and I hate to think that actors are wasting their money. Therefore, it makes me grateful that someone is advocating the fact that ‘having something to say’, and knowing ‘how’ to say it, will always be in hopes of marketing themselves, beyond their work itself."
-Michael Cassara, Casting Director, New York, NYRead More
"I was speaking at a conference where I was able to share the platform with Tony. I was there as a speaker, not an attendee but less than two minutes into his dynamic talk I was sucked in and writing notes faster than he could talk (which is really saying something). His content is strong, his ideas are very simple to implement, his strategies are well constructed, and his presentation is funny, credible, and energetic to say the least. In the ever changing world of social media it can sometimes seem impossible to stay on top of things. Tony makes it systematic, practically automatic, and most of all fun."
-Julian Franklin, Speaker, Houston, TXRead More
"Even being immersed in social media management, I learned new things—your marketing tips were very helpful. The amount of research you did to give specific examples was extremely helpful and well thought out. I have looked at social media SlideShares online—they are all very similar and lack the research and examples you provide. I could tell how much quality time you put into the presentation and I think it was appreciated by all. Truly wonderful!"
-Alanna Pithis, Digital Strategist, New York, NYRead More
"Tony Howell’s mastery of social media as a tool actors can use to move their artistic careers ahead with intelligence, forethought and honesty is remarkable. He answers so many doubts I had had as a curmudgeon of the twentieth century and has made me feel I might well find more than a niche for myself in the twenty-first through social media."
