Antonio was a phenomenal speaker for our recent Visa event. Visa is currently in our midyear review cycle, so the timing of his presentation allowed Visa teammates to reflect on our individual goals and progress to re-energize going into the second half of our fiscal year. Antonio’s presentation was energetic, relatable, and engaging. The event captured over 400 attendees during the live event and many more watched the recording.

Antonio came as a guest speaker at our virtual offsite and knocked it out of the park! His energy was infectious, and the session chat window lit up with folks thanking Antonio or sharing personal anecdotes related to the messages Antonio was sharing. People were so engaged and many of them told me offline that it was the best session at our offsite! One attendee spoke for all of us when they said “Don’t goooooo Antonio!!” as the session was wrapping up.

Find The Edge Again: Rekindle The Spark That Makes You Energized, Engaged & Bold
Whether you’re a leader at the helm of an organization or a professional at a crossroads in your career, you know a simple truth: in these complicated times, it’s more challenging than ever to feel motivated.
But that feeling of disengagement and low morale is pernicious—once it sets in, it rarely just blows over. And if left unchecked, it can lead to burnout that has a long-term effect on a company’s success.
So how do you hit the reset button to rekindle excitement, increase focus, and get clear again on what’s most important? Antonio helps audiences find that edge again with three critical steps to boost workplace engagement, establish a culture of allies, and create systems for personal accountability and measurable results.
Backed by research and proven results detailed in the bestselling book, Stop Living on Autopilot, this highly-rated program helps leaders, teams, and employees recommit to a shared vision in a way that aligns with their own goals as individuals, too. Finding this alignment of passion helps improve performance, combat complacency, and encourage creative decision-making.
Join Antonio for this talk to refuel energy, rekindle excitement, and recommit to being bold.
Participants will learn how to:
- Reignite the energy and drive that they brought to the table on day one
