The world needs people like Lou! God bless you!

Sr. Diane, VBVM School

For more than 20 years in Education and Youth Ministry, I am constantly searching for presenters who can hit home with my students. Lou Mongello is a Grand Slam! Lou meets the needs of the students by doing his research, arriving well prepared, and respecting the reality of budgets. His presentation is Personal, Powerful, and On-Point, with a bit of Disney Magic mixed in. Our students came away with an excited optimism about their futures. Be prepared for enthusiastic and meaningful career development discussions afterwards. For them, “Following Their Dreams and Doing What They Love”, is not a fairytale, but a road map to a life of happiness.

Lou is such a joy to work with. He was responsive to all of my questions and worked to customize his presentation to our industry. Our association represents funeral service, so you can imagine that combining Disney and funerals might seem like a stretch. Lou went above and beyond to make it fit and his presentations were the hit of our convention. I wish we could hire him to speak at all of our conventions. Thank you, Lou, for doing such a stand-up job.
