“Diane and Gene are an all-star team. If your company employs sports newbies or sports pros, American nationals or those unfamiliar with American football, Water Cooler Football is an engaging way to bring employees together on common ground – the football field.”Beth Kurth, Kurth & Company
The delivery of the concept was fantastic! Having Gene describe at the aspects of football and then Diane relating it back to the business world resonated very well with the group. You absolutely scored a touchdown…with a two point conversion!Tom Barlett, President - Barlett Business Consulting
I learned quickly when I arrived in Boston how important American football is to U.S. culture, especially in New England. Although I may not be ready to head out on the pitch myself quite yet, I can now cheer on the Patriots with a little more confidence.
British Consul General for New England, Susie Kitchens
Thank you very much for the fantastic evening of fun, networking and learning at the Boston ASTD event Tuesday night. Your 2013 Super Bowl of Networking event was extremely well done. Thank you and Gene DeFilippo for presenting it – I enjoyed every minute of it.
And it is great to hear that the segment will be on CBS this Sunday – I’ll be sure to watch.
Thank you again – and also a big thanks to Susie Kitchens for hosting us at the British Consulate.Barbara R. Quinn, Director Learning & Performance, ADP
I enjoyed watercooler football immensely. It reinforced for me the importance of keeping up with sports for networking. It also brought back memories of lots of pizza on cold Sunday afternoons watching football with my dad. It now continues with my son. Tuesday night was a lot of fun!Bill Taube, Business and Marketing Strategist
I had such a great time at the Water Cooler Football event! Now, the next time Tom Brady yells out “Mike”, “Sam”, or “Willie”, I’ll know what’s he’s telling his front line! This was the most fun I’ve had networking in years.

“Diane and Gene have developed a great seminar. They draw some great parallels between football and networking – the preparation for and then the playing of the game(s). There are many.
They also have an entertaining and informative interplay that enhances even an expert’s understanding of football strategy while reinforcing the nuances of effective networking in a fresh and memorable way.”Mike Jeans, President, New Directions
I actually learned what two-deep coverage was – I thought it was a zone coverage of two defenders covering one receiver (one short – one long). So you can teach an old dog new tricks!Ray Graber, President and Founder Graber Associates
BY far that was the best Networking Event I have ever attended. I was able to put the tips and recommendations you shared immediately into practice and I walked away having made many new connections. Also, I learned a thing or two about football and maybe now I will attend that upcoming Super Bowl Party! Thanks for your high energy, enthusiasm and for making networking fun.
I was intrigued by the name of your event and realized that I needed to “up my game” at both…Melissa Powers, Forum Corporation
