"Well-organized, engaging, energetic speaker"
"Tenacious, extremely knowledgeable and fun"
”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, LA
"Class was one of our most well-received"

-Shawn Lewis, Executive Director of the Actors Studio Drama School Repertory Season, New York, NY
"Knocked our collective socks off"
“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.”
-Peyton Royal, Spring Break Coordinator, Oklahoma City University, New York, NY

"You did a marvelous job and the workshop was very well-received and fascinating. Knocked our collective socks off!"
-Bonnie Erickson, Director of Educational Programming, Broadway Dance Center, New York, NY
"Students were so pumped about it afterwards"
"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, WI
"Highly organized, engaging and inspiring"
"Tony did an amazing Skype session with my 'Prep for the Profession' class. His '5 Keys to Create Your Own Success' keynote on marketing and social media was great! The students were so pumped about it afterwards. Book him! It's totally worth your while!!!"
-Jonathan Flom, Program Director, Musical Theatre at Shenandoah Conservatory, Winchester, VA
"Applicable, important and eye opening"
"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, CO
"Appropriate for colleges, graduate schools, even doctoral programs"
"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, NJ
"Resonated with families and added enrichment"
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, PA
"The most effective tool any actor can employ"
"I got good feedback from parents after your Skype seminar! What you had to say resonated with families and added to the whole weekend enrichment."
-Mary Anna Dennard, CEO, College Audition Coach, Dallas, TX
"Strong content and energetic presentation"
"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, NY
"Extremely helpful and well thought out"
"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, TX
"Immensely impressed and inspired!"
"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, NY
"Clear, upbeat and fresh"
"I was immensely impressed and inspired by your seminar—your success and clear headed, incisive and inclusive methodologies. Thanks, Tony!"
-Kate Fuglei, Los Angeles
"Forethought and honesty is remarkable"
"Your presentation style is wonderful. I’ve been an instructor for years so I can spot a great presenter. I’m so amazed. You are so good, clear, upbeat and fresh."
-Mary Lahti, Actor, New York, NY
"Brilliant—filled with useful material"
"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."
-Jeremy Lawrence, Actor, New York, NY
"Practical, specific and smart tips"
"I thought this seminar was brilliant—filled with so much useful material! It’s going to be such an important tool to our careers and really going to be life changing! Thank you for sharing all of your knowledge!"

-Mesic Layla, Artist, New York, NY
"Thorough, informative and fascinating"
"I found this seminar to be very informative. It was great to hear new information and be reminded of the things I already knew. I really liked how we saw different examples of professionals representing themselves with their social media. I found the detailed topics and in depth information to be very helpful. The information on staying professional and what to and what not to share was very important and very beneficial."
-Taylor Markarian, Dancer, New York, NY
