Nebraska Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics – April, 2015 (from the conference chairs)

“Your talk was so great and relatable to every RD in the room. I commented to Meghan how impressive it was that you could be so dynamic even without being there in person to hear the laughter and feedback from the crowd. We both wish we could have met you in person!”

Florida Dietetic Association – July, 2013 (Executive Director)

Your session was by far one of the most popular ones for our 600 attendees. Many people said we kept the best for the last day! The attendees really appreciated your perspective on health and your engaging delivery style

Ben Franklin Institute National Eating Disorder Summit – June – 2013:

“Best presentation of the conference, both in terms of content and in delivery style of presentation.”

“One of the most, if not the most, thoughtful, stimulating presentations I have ever heard.”

“Jon Robison is the best speaker I have heard in a long time. Intelligent. This man knows what he is talking about. Excellent, tasteful use of humor.”

American Journal of Health Promotion Conference – March, 2013:

-  “Finally – Someone and Something that gets it and can sell it! More Please!”

-  “Terrific having a different point of view and controversy. Lots of talk about topic afterwards! Wow!”

-  “Jon is great and very well substantiates his challenge of the status quo! Bring him back!”

“Dr Robison is one of the nation’s top experts and speakers regarding the difference between science and hype when it comes to the complicated issues of weight and health. He is brilliant, highly personable and compassionate. Dr. Robison has mastered engaging audiences and empowering organizations towards much more effective health programs.  (Scott Foster, President, Wellco – 2012)

I invited Jon Robison to be the keynote at our 2010 New York State College Health Association Annual Meeting. He was a pleasure to work with and willing to ensure that his presentation met the needs of our constituents. I received many words of complement for bringing Jon to the attention of the conference planning committee. Jon Robison is an enthusiastic, well-informed presenter. His presentation is well-researched and finds the critical balance between information and entertainment that leaves his audience wanting more. The hope in planning any professional conference is that you leave your attendees thinking and looking forward to bringing new information back to their practices. Jon Robison can deliver.

Jon I am pleased to have taken your intensive workshop, because it touched a special place in my heart …You sparked off an emotion. At first it was a tearfullness. And I was not ashamed. It was exhilirating to know that all those years of medicine did not really extinguish my sensitivity. Thank you for a wonderful 2 days. My personal assistant would also like to thank you because she has never seen my soft side. Not in 8 years of working with me. (Dr Alec Savicky, Medical Director Health 4 Life, Australia.)
