“We had our Second Annual Sports Gala in Zenon Park this spring (2012) and once again it was a big success. Special thanks to Joe Gunnis of EMJ Marketing for all of the help in once again getting us some top notch talent and for coming to our event. Scott Schultz and Weston Dressler were a big hit with the kids as they generously agreed to take part in an autograph session prior to the dinner; Weston was a big hit with the ladies too! Both men were hilarious and had great tales to tell. Mr. Schultz is pretty smooth for a big man. And who knew that Elton John would factor into the evening? Michael Ball did a fantastic job as emcee and helped keep the evening moving along smoothly, even if the Big Deal Mobile didn’t move so smoothly.
I highly recommend contacting Joe from EMJ Marketing if you are looking to get a good speaker for your event. He will do whatever he can to make your event a success.”
Mark Ollinger – Chairperson of Zenon Park Sports Gala
“Often when you go to sports dinners, you get a one-dimensional look from a speaker. A few stories about the playing days and little else. But when you book Weston Dressler, you get a well-rounded speaker who will appeal to all.
Weston was one of our speakers at the Estevan Football Fundraising Dinner in April 2013 and it was truly a privilege to have him there.
Start off with a joke or two about an ex-teammate (Matt Dominguez) who was in the crowd, throw in some tales about his start in football as a youngster, add in an lesser-known fact about which CFL team initially held his rights, a splash of stories from his rookie year and spice it up with some more current facts about the Roughriders and you have the perfect recipe for an entertaining speaker that never loses your attention.
Plus, Weston is great with interacting with the crowd, posing for numerous photos and signing many, many autographs.
Polite, well spoken, friendly, entertaining, and classy – we could only wish all the athletes our kids look up to would be like Weston.
It’s a given that we recommend Weston Dressler as a speaker for your event. You will not be disappointed.”
