On Monday, October 21st 2013 Delta Gamma Fraternity at The University of Tampa had the privilege of working with Steve Sapato, professional public speaker. Mr. Sapato lead an educational discussion on alcohol to the campuss Greek community and so generously waived his $250 fee.
Delta Gamma asked Mr. Sapato to provide us with a lesson on the good and bad outcomes of alcohol. The presentation was not only informative but also interesting. Mr. Sapato was able to keep the attention of over 100 college students by making the presentation interactive and fun for the audience. One of the points that stuck in our heads was that, "Alcohol can be like your best friend, but if you continue to abuse and mistreat your best friend then they will eventually leave you. This is something no one would want, and if you continuously misuse alcohol then that can lead your life in a direction you wouldn't normally want to be in."
After the presentation, I waited to speak to some of the audience to hear their thoughts. All positive feedback was collected. The audience appreciated that Mr. Sapato was so realistic. Giving a talk to college students on alcohol could have been tough, since a majority of these students consume alcohol. However, Mr. Sapato recognized this issue and pleasantly surprised us all. Rather than throwing out all the bad and negative points, attempting to scare us away from alcohol, he focused in on teaching about moderation and how it can be enjoyable when used safely. Mr. Sapato stressed the severity of the consequences that come with drinking and driving, and told us to always remain in control. He made the lesson fun and I believe that all of us now have a stronger knowledge of just how much we need to be careful of our actions.
It was a pleasure working with Mr. Sapato, we would highly recommend his services and look forward to using him in the future.
