“Brennan Scanlon is an outstanding speaker. He recently presented for the Madeira Chamber of Commerce. Brennan researches his topic thoroughly, and then conducts a concise and fact-filled talk. His delivery is lively and interesting.

Each time I hear a presentation from him, I am delighted. He does a great job of connecting with the audience and addressing comments.

I ordinarily do not like to attend presentations; I tend to get bored easily. That never happens when I hear Brennan speak. He's an excellent role model and a great and useful source of knowledge.”
