“Steve was the featured speaker at this year’s Southern CT State University “Dr. Joseph Panza Annual Sport Management Lecture”. In front of an auditorium packed with approximately 200 college students, faculty, staff and friends, Steve told a compelling story of overcoming a tragic and life changing event, and how he has channeled his thoughts and energies into such a positive outlook and positive impact on society. The crowd was so in tune to Steve’s presentation, the entire time you could hear a pin drop. The overarching theme of the post lecture feedback was “inspirational and motivating”. I would recommend Steve Emt as a motivational and entertaining speaker to audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Steve Emt is an extraordinary individual!"
“Steve’s message is just like his personality; he is honest, real, and pulls no punches and blames no one for his accident other than himself. But, he is positive, enthusiastic, and full of life. As a former middle school teacher Steve knows how to connect with students from middle school through college and beyond. After hearing Steve speak to our students I immediately went to my computer and emailed our local high school principal as well as the principal where my own children attend and wrote, “You have to have Steve Emt at your school talking to the kids!” Steve had a profound impact on me personally and our entire school community.
If you want to impact people’s lives, have Steve Emt speak to your organization.”
“I have been teaching at Northwest Catholic High School in West Hartford, Connecticut for 32 years. Steve Emt’s speech to our student body this Spring was one of the best I have experienced in all my time at the school. Steve’s talk was riveting for all in attendance which included teenagers and adults. From beginning to end, Steve provided life lessons and inspiration. Steve has a gift in the way he speaks to his audience. His story is fascinating, and his message moves his audience through a range of emotions. If you have an opportunity to hear Steve Emt speak, I highly recommend you do so. I hope Steve has an opportunity to share his message throughout the country.”
