Len Lipton, Presentation By Design, Los Angeles CA

"When I called you, I thought I was calling to get advice on adding humor to the story. The humor was right on target, and helped get lots of good laughs, but you gave me so much more.

Terry Wall, TG Wall Management Consulting, Washington Township, NJ

"A great investment. John Kinde is a Rock Star. We attended a humor conference together where John was called out of the audience by surprise to do three minutes of humor cold. After three minutes they pushed him to go on and on. He killed them. It was one of those magical times. John has an interesting way of looking at humor. Hes almost a scientist. He is funny. He knows how to break down the humor process. And he understands the speaking business. He is amazing. "
