Speaking and Music

"Dennis Marcellino's performance was fantastic! He engaged the audience in the opening seconds and kept their attention throughout the session. Dennis is a talented storyteller and musician, and he wove these two talents together beautifully and in a unique style. I am exceedingly happy with his presentation, and will invite him to speak at future events and recommend him to others."
Wendi Watson, Director of Marketing & Events, Restore America

Dennis Marcellino wowed his audience with some wonderful music, but even more importantly bowled them over with scientific discoveries.
Terry Hughes, Event Coordinator

Dennis Marcellino is a superb presenter! He articulated his arguments skillfully and convincingly, coupled with illustrations from his personal life's journey. His powerpoint graphics were well crafted and at a subsequent gathering he demonstrated his enormous musical talent on the saxophone. I would highly recommend Dennis to those desiring a stimulating and entertaining program.
Dr. Keith Swenson, Professor of Biology, Multnomah University,
President, Design Science Association

I found your presentations exactly what I had hoped for. I am always delighted with working with 'artists'. You guys see reality from a wonderfully different vantage point. I am always refreshed and enriched by such things as you presented. I feel there was so much content that it would have made a nice two-credit course in the catalogue.
Ed Windhaus, Event Coordinator, Swarthmore College

Lynn Hoffman, Conference Director, Northern California

Dennis Marcellino's engaging subject is delivered with a disarming, "everyman" feeling. Sometimes drawing from his extensive background in the performance music business, he has volumes to share. Also, his sax performance is simply excellent--upon hearing, one can understand why Dennis has had so much professional work in this field!
Kevin Hogan, Videographer for the Design Science Association

Norm Myrh, Sr. Vice President (head of advertising), Fred Meyer Corporation

He deeply cares about the negative experiences people are going through in our world today, and his mission is to show that these sufferings are unnecessary and that a great solution exists."
Bill Bennett, (review in) The Capitol Voice

"The Lion Sleeps Tonight really got people geared up – hands, bodies, fingers, feet moving to the music. Dennis was gracious in consenting to an encore at the end. Dennis's message comes from a unique perspective. Thought provoking and well accepted."
Larry Everson, Program Co-ordinator, Bonneville Power Administration (a federal agency)
