With more than 37 years of experience as a communications professional, John Verrico provides training and workshops on communication and motivational leadership. He is the former President of the National Association of Government Communicators, retired from the Navy Reserve as a Master Chief Journalist and has worked in federal and state government agencies, primarily in media, community and employee relations.

John uses humor and interactive techniques to engage audiences in an entertaining way that resonates with audiences and helps people become more successful. What makes his approach different is his natural affinity for storytelling that makes every presentation unique. With a broad range of life experiences as a freelance journalist, stand-up comic, janitor, public affairs officer, theater performer, magazine editor, small-business consultant, disco dance instructor, and monster movie memorabilia collector, John has learned to enjoy life, not take it too seriously, and learn something from every encounter. He has a Master's degree in Organizational Leadership and a Bachelor's degree in communication.

John primarily offers programs on topics such as motivational leadership, measuring up to expectations, building high-performance teams, communicating with others, and maintaining good work-life balance. John was named 2015 Top Motivational Speaker in the Washington DC region, and a "Best of 2015" and "Best of 2016" by Thumbtack.com. He was also named World Wide Who's Who 2016 Professional of the Year for Excellence in Leadership & Communications and 2010 Professional of the Year for Motivational Leadership.
