WALDORF, MD, February 23, 2016 -- John Verrico, motivational speaker, trainer and humorist based in the Washington, D.C. area, has been named a Worldwide Branding Professional of the Year in Leadership & Communications. While inclusion in Worldwide Branding is an honor, only small selections of members in each discipline are chosen for this distinction. These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, years of service, and the credentials they have provided in association with their Worldwide Branding membership.

With unparalleled expertise in his field, Mr. Verrico lends an impressive three and a half decades of experience to helping other professionals develop and improve their leadership and communication skills, and their outlook on life.

She stated, “Everyone found him to be funny, refreshing and motivating. …He really energized the room, but was also able to transition that energy to deliver poignant takeaway messages that we could all reflect on after the speech. If you are looking for a quality speaker for your event, John Verrico is highly recommended!”

Although he has received many awards and accolades over the years, including’s Best of 2015 Top Motivational Speaker and a Peer Recognition Award in 2012, what Mr. Verrico finds most rewarding is knowing that he’s made a meaningful connection for someone. He remembers a former workshop attendee who came back to him to share her success story from applying what she learned from him, a burly blue-collar worker who broke out in tears because of something he learned in one of Mr. Verrico’s sessions, and an intern who developed into a professional with the help of his teachings.
