Rave Reviews About Izzy Ezagui
Izzy’s presentation overly exceeded our group’s expectations. Especially because he is one of the youngest speakers we've ever had. He absolutely crushed it! His impactful story was delivered in an engaging manner that included humor, drama and life lessons which provided a ton of take home value for our members. As EO Arizona Chapter’s Learning Chair, I seek to identify speakers that can positively influence both the personal and business lives of those I serve and Izzy helped me achieve just that. His survey results were a 10 out of 10 and I encourage every EO Chapter around the globe to invite him to speak.
