• A 20 year career veteran, I’ve sat through my fair share of inspirational speakers as Vice President of Marketing for brands such as the NFL and Outback Steakhouse - and Leslie's keynote presentation at the Women of the Vine Symposium falls directly in to the category of ‘Rock Star.’ Thank you for standing among strangers and peers and being authentic, honest and candid. Most importantly, thank you for providing tangible, actionable wisdom.

  • Leslie Sbrocco captures her audience’s attention through the unexpected. Highly animated, her refreshing sense of humor belies the fact that she seriously knows her stuff. First Leslie seduces you, making you her pal. Then, she casually imparts her knowledge in a way that you want to remember because you like her so much. Learning has never been more fun than with Leslie Sbrocco.

  • Leslie is an amazing keynote speaker. Not only were all of her seminars a sell-out, she truly entertained and educated the standing-room only crowds. But that’s not all. With Leslie, we had the perfect speaker because of her command of print, radio and television media and her willingness to totally support her speaking engagements by conducting media interviews on our behalf.

  • Attending a Leslie Sbrocco seminar is like a breath of fresh air! Her contagious spirit and in- depth wine knowledge make her presentations easy to follow, entertaining and informative. Everyone walks away with a smile and a shopping list, be it for a great merlot or a new black dress! Kudos to Leslie for bringing this engaging presentation style to the forefront of wine education.

  • Learning to select and pair wines can be an intimidating process for many women. But Leslie managed to educate the crowd with ease. Her engaging, conversational tone and sharp sense of humor proved to be tremendous to the overall success of our ‘Hi Gorgeous Tour’ events!

  • Leslie Sbrocco holds the title of the most appreciated and enjoyed speaker at the Women’s Show series we produce. Leslie’s knowledge of wine is impressive. It is, however, her ability to share this knowledge in a fun, interesting and interactive way is what makes Leslie special. She epitomizes the saying, ‘Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me and I’ll remember. Involve me and I’ll understand.’ Her book, Wine for Women, is a personal favorite, and I recommend it to my friends (both women and men) who are wine connoisseurs as well as those just beginning to explore the world of wine. We’ve had many wonderful speakers and never had a speaker whose topic, delivery and personal sense of style has so enchanted our audiences.
