Ali Wentworth could not have been a nicer person to address our guests. She was hilarious, unpretentious, entertaining, sincere and energetic. Our crowd welcomed her wholeheartedly and she, clearly, was the type of friend you’d want sitting at your dinner table telling stories. Her skill at engaging the crowd was spot-on. With her charmed life of success and famous connections, there was not one drop of “Diva” in her presentation….she even drove herself to the event! She was the perfect antidote for the winter blues and a great change of pace from our history of inspirational, yet sometimes very sad stories shared by previous speakers. We could not have been happier with your highly recommended selection. Many of our guests said she “was our best ever!”STAR, Inc.
Ali was by far one of the best MC we’ve ever had for this event. She was funny and smart and you would have thought she had been deeply involved in the program before hitting the stage that morning.The Robert Toigo Foundation
