"I was blown away by Jerry's presentation of "Reading the Tells". I was so excited about it, I found myself sharing the pearls I learned to anyone who would listen. Being in sales, it's crucial to my business to know if I'm being effective, or if I'm being an annoyance, as my clients are doctors with busy schedules. I'm now able to determine if I have their full attention, or if I need to wrap up my presentation, or change the course of my conversation. I would highly recommend "Reading the Tells" to anyone, as these are skills one can utilize in every day life."

"I am a retired police detective with 35 years of law enforcement experience in Maine law enforcement agencies. Currently I am an Special Investigations Unit manager for a national disability insurance carrier. Recently I have had the pleasure of attending Jerry Balistreri’s Detecting Lying & Deception for CFEs via Body Language presentation. As a career investigator I have attended numerous interviewing trainings over the years. I can unequivocally state that Jerry is among the best in the field. His back story is compelling, and his presentation is informative and entertaining. Jerry provided keen insight and excellent case studies. I would highly recommend his presentation for any professional interested in the art of interviewing."
Mark Walsh CFE, Allied Universal Compliance and Investigations
I hired Jerry Balistreri to present on the topic, "Reading the Tells – Learning How to Read Body Language at our WSCPA Fraud Conference. Jerry surpassed my expectation and was magnificent. The audience was riveted by his presentation. To date, Jerry has been one of the greatest speaker finds and I would whole heartedly recommend him for any engagement that you need a fabulous speaker.

"I took a great workshop! It will help me to read and understand my clients better."
Hildeberto Martinez, Image Consultant, Mexico
"I retell the story of you giving this presentation and how you developed skills of reading non-verbals time and time again in my own speaking and teaching. I would say you had a great impact on this listener! Your delivery is polished. You teach while telling a story. The audience was not only engaged members left with new information – that is the hallmark of quality in training adult learners. Other notables, appearance and dress, your apparel and demeanor inspire respect – gold star!"
Mary Rydesky, Transition Management Consulting & President ASTD Alaska Chapter
"Fascinating, must hear information. Anyone who deals with people needs to be well versed in the science of the "tell". My position requires me to deal with people, many which I do not know and must make a snap judgment."
Dan Colbert - Presiding Commissioner, Lincoln County Commission, Missouri
"You will acquire a lot of valuable information that you will be able to use that will help you to understand so much about what the person is "telling" you when you know how to officially tread non-verbal language. You may be able to help the client identify issues he or she was not aware about themselves."
Linda Luedtke, School Counselor, Two Rivers HS, WI
"Just wanted you to know that my students have gone absolutely crazy over the information that I shared with them. One student said, "I felt like a freak at lunch the other day because I was so busy staring at people trying to figure them out." I have even had a couple of students say that they have reevaluated their relationships with some people because they noticed that some of the "lying" tells were showing through. Wow! They are really paying attention.

Neal Roper, Easley HS, Pickens, South Carolina
"Jerry's presentation on "Body Language" is a great conduit for helping audiences of all ages to arm themselves with great skills for translation and understanding of how humans interact non-verbally. It is entertaining yet based on the science of non-verbal communication. The content of Jerry's presentation is comprehensive and anticipatory; he uses modeling, audience participation, well identified examples, and lays out the objectives of his presentation in a very organized and professional manner. I highly recommend this presentation. There is always more Jerry can share with my students and they typically ask if we can invite him back to present more."

"Jerry’s seminar was engaging, fun, informative and useful. I utilized Jerry’s insights to redesign the curriculum in our Career Marketing course. Jerry’s style of teaching was relaxed, fun, heartfelt, and prompted many enlightening discussions among colleagues. The presentation prompted me to reevaluate how I present myself to others in the classroom and in one on one counseling sessions with graduates. The only criticism I have is that I wished we had more time with Jerry! I strongly recommend his training to others. "
