John Sturtevant earned the IABC All-Star Speaker recognition at the International Association of Business Communicators 2009 World Conference in San Francisco.

Sturtevant’s 75-minute presentation – "10 Clear Ideas for Writing Well" – received 6.35 out of a possible 7 audience rating to earn him the All-Star Speaker designation.

According to Vicki Yim, IABC's World Conference Director, “Your excellent audience evaluations and rating of 6.35, or higher, at the IABC 2009 World Conference qualify you as an IABC All-Star Speaker with the IABC Recommended Speaker designation. A rating of 6.3–7.0 is considered excellent, 5.6–6.2 is considered good and 5.0–5.5 is considered average.”

Some comments from attendees:

“Marvelous presentation. Great session, great speaker.”

“Every presenter should have an acting background – John brought great energy and stories and antics.”

“What an inspiring presentation. Even when I think I’ve heard it all; I obviously haven’t! Thank you!”
