"The theater was PACKED! The Crowd was EXCITED! The mood was FESTIVE! The Speaker [O'Reilly] was FABULOUS! Truly, we had a wonderful evening. The Jr League of York signed on the most Major Sponsors of any other Speaker Series event in the last 8 - 10 years. There was a buzz in York...and it helped to generate ticket sales. The timing of the appearance couldn't have been better -- especially the week prior to Super Tuesday and the Super Bowl! We really appreciated Bill O'Reilly's professionalism, his kindness and patience. What really struck me was his kindness to the older folks .... he did not turn one person away as he was asked by many for pictures or autographs. So, on behalf of my Speaker Series Committee, I thank Mr. O'Reilly, you and Cynthia and all your staff at Harry Walker Agency for your help in making this event happen! We hope that Bill himself had an enjoyable time, and that he comes back to York again!"
-Jane Boyle, Chair, Speaker Series Committee, Junior League of York
"We truly enjoyed your timely and informative presentation. Presidents Academy is the most powerful business gathering in the world for hospitality industry leaders and their guests. This program is offered exclusively to presidents and chief executive officers of multi-unit lodging corporations or management companies. We would also like to thank you for taking the time for a photo opportunity with our hospitality leaders and their guests. Our attendees especially enjoyed speaking with you personally."
-Tony Marshall, President and CEO, Educational Institute and Tom Hewitt, Dean, Presidents Academy
"The evening was a smashing success. As Executive Director of the State Theatre, I book over 100 shows per season, including some of the biggest names in show business. When we announced that Bill O'Reilly was on the schedule, the tickets just flew out the door. As you know, we preceded his speech with a corporate dinner with 'insider' remarks from Mr. O'Reilly; he perched on a stool and captivated the dinner audience. People were so spellbound, that the waitstaff forgot to serve the dessert. The best part is, not one person noticed or cared! By the time we got to his lecture, the evening was already a hit, and the lecture audience especially enjoyed the question and answer portion of the program. In summary, our evening with Bill O'Reilly was the best event we've ever held."
-Shelley Brown, Executive Director, The State Theatre Center for the Arts, Inc.
"Your address at the World Scholar-Athlete Games was superb. One of our principle objectives was to challenge the participants to become critical thinkers. I don’t believe that anyone could have helped us accomplish this goal better than you did on June 25. You were terrific! I also wanted to thank you for the gracious way you treated our guests at the pre-event reception. You made a major contribution to the success of the World Scholar-Athlete Games. All of us associated with the Institute for International Sport are most grateful to you."
-Dan Doyle, Executive Director, Institute for International Sport
"Please accept my thanks on behalf of the membership of the Michigan Health & Hospital Association for providing us with an excellent presentation during our recent annual meeting. I know that all in attendance enjoyed your thought provoking comments. Your comments were just perfect for our theme and opening session."
-Marlene K. Hulteen, CAE, Group Vice President, Michigan Health & Hospital Association
"Having Mr. O'Reilly on Monday morning was like having the first batter hit a homerun on opening day! We couldn't have asked for a more lively or engaging speaker. Our audience listened, laughed and mirrored many of the famous O'Reilly facial expressions. His comparison of President Bush and former President Clinton and the Q&A session were audience crowd pleasers."
-Theresa James, Manager of Meetings & Special Events, Gama International
"I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for your recent appearance at our Conference. The crowd loved having you there for the 'Best Gets Better' program. We have received many compliments regarding your presentation. The Debate was very thought provoking!"
-George F. Martin, Bakersfield Business Conference
"We wanted to take this opportunity to say 'Thank you' for helping bring to us the wit and no-spin wisdom of Mr. Bill O'Reilly. He inspired and challenged our Distributors with his call to honesty in American life. He drew applause more than a dozen times as he shared the techniques he uses in selling his television program, The O'Reilly Factor, and challenged our independent distributors to use those same techniques in their own AdvoCare business. --Judy Bieroth, AdvoCare
Mr. O'Reilly's message of honesty and integrity was certainly timely and most appropriate for our theme. It was obvious that he had taken the time to study AdvoCare and tailor his message specifically to meet our needs. He challenged each member of the audience to conduct their business in a manner that will earn the respect of others and to make a difference in lives they touch."
"This year's event...was a big success. Upon entering the dining room Mr. O'Reilly was met by many fans and he was kind enough to sign books and programs prior to the dinner and again after his speech. Mr. O'Reilly was very entertaining and did take questions from the audience."
-Sandy Davis, Event & Program Director, Orange County Business Council
"Thank you so much for a superior presentation at our Club. You are a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stale and arcane atmosphere where the standard is hyperbole and empty rhetoric."
-E. Lawrence Oldfield, President, Executives Breakfast Club of Oak Brook
"We are delighted to report that the Gala was a tremendous success. Mr. O'Reilly was incredibly gracious and so wonderful to meet and work with. He gave an extremely entertaining and well thought out address. We are still getting calls from guests who were so pleased with his remarks. We are also very happy to report that this year's gala raised more money than our previous two years combined!"
