One of HRCC’s most popular speakers

“Phil Stella has long been one of HRCC’s most popular speakers. For 15 years, Phil has shared his expertise with our members on relationship building, efficiently and effectively running meetings, creating and polishing our “elevator speeches” so that we are confident in our own messaging, and has continuously delivered practical networking tips and strategies.

“Phil delivers his message succinctly, but with wit and charm. Our attendees leave every time with tools they can put to use immediately. In fact, one of the best aspects of Phil’s presentations and workshops is the live interactive training, where participants put his tips into play with fellow attendees.

“As a facilitator, Phil’s sure-handed command of the crowd comes from the posture of knowing exactly how to lead people where THEY want to go. He’s approachable, engaging, and always fresh. We appreciate that Phil retains the core of what he knows so well, but continues to add new tools to his kit so that we can benefit as well.

“Over the years, we’ve put Phil to the test in just about every kind of presentation scenario … from formal presentations, to facilitating networking events, facilitating panel discussions, and even hosting a game-show style presentation, he always comes through.”
