This is one which I am certain at future retreats we will be referring when we say, 'you know, this year was good but nothing will ever be as good as 2013 at Keswick!'" —Sharon Hughes, Executive Director of Administration, Diamond McCarthy LLP Attorneys & Counselors "Thank you so much for being part of our very special weekend... You were absolutely AWESOME!!! Your presence and performance added such depth and magic to the whle evening. You gave our guests a real taste of the wise, easy going nature of Thomas Jefferson. People came away feeling a very special connection to this incredible character... And a special thank you for the beautiful toast and tribute that you gave to me. You filled my heart! You captured the pure essence of feelings that I put behind hosting that event and I so appreciate how eloquently you expressed that feeling. Thank you for your perception and sensitivity. You are a true gentleman." —Jennifer Casey, Mother-of-the-groom at a 2015 wedding reception in Charlottesville, Virginia "We found your talk very inspirational and so relevant to all we've been learning this week about leadership. We appreciate your great work!" —Raquel Romero, Leadership & Organization Development program manager, National Park Service GOAL ("Generating Organizational Advancement and Leadership") Program Academy "We were delighted with how well "Thomas Jefferson v. John Marshall" went and the great reviews received.

Your lively exchanges added to the spark of the program and your insights and perspective were invaluable." —Harry D Owens, Jr., Esquire, Program Attorney and Sabina C. McCarthy, Program Manager Pennsylvania Bar Institute "I wanted to thank you again for a truly wonderful evening.

Club EventReviewed on October 17, 2021From Dover, DE

Steven Edenbo as Thomas Jefferson gave the most awsome performance. He was well received by the audience. I received many emails and calls after our meeting expressing how great his performance was. They thought this was by far the best speaker we have had at the DAR. Every detail was to perfection: his speach, his dress, his knowledge of his character the answer to his questions and his ability to not interject current day politics. He was accomodating and gave us the full time but I could have listened to him all day. He was very well organized from our first interaction with booking. I can not say enough good things. But I will end with my strong recommendation.

Private PartyReviewed on March 11, 2020From Washington, DC

We had Steve come to our cocktail party which included mainly nonprofits. He was very accommodating and professional and kept conversation non-partisan. He interacted with the guests and everyone seemed to enjoy him. One quote from a colleague at the event: "Last, but not least, I LOVED Thomas Jefferson. He was the life of the party. Fun idea." Steve was very easy to work with - I would definitely recommend him.
