Testimonials:

I have had the privilege of having the Hudak on Hollywood Lecture Series here at Gleneagles Country Club in Delray Beach Florida.  Our cultural, educational and entertainment is set to the highest standards and were thrilled to have this series added to this season’s Social Calendar. The members absolutely loved each topic and lecture this season. I am excited to continue having the series year round with all of the new topics and sequels to previous topics coming forth in the future.  Dan Hudak as well as others that deliver his lectures are always on time, professional, passionate about the topics and love to convey these lectures.  The members love the stories, knowledge and critiques that these speakers bring to each topic.  If you want an easy homerun for lectures, Dan Hudak is your guy!
-Ali Hall, Social Director at Gleneagles Country Club

Please accept this letter as my strong recommendation for Film Critic and Lecturer Dan Hudak’s program. As an Entertainment Director for a sometimes demanding and always discerning group, I am constantly looking for creative and entertaining ways to add to my program. As we have a “movie crowd”, Dan was the perfect choice to fit the bill! His lectures are entertaining and interesting, touching on a topic that appeals to all age groups…the movies! He is personable and knowledgeable and an evening spent with Dan is one where you walk away wanting to know more about the subject of the night. My residents are always happy when Dan visits and the theatre is usually full of film lovers excited  to hear his topic for the evening. If you are looking for a fresh and engaging evening for your group, look no further. Call Dan Hudak!

Dan's presentation on the Oscar nominees was very well received by our community.  He was interesting, so knowledgeable, professional, and downright charming and warm.  He maintained the audience's rapt attention throughout his performance while smoothly synchronizing his video examples with his talk. We look forward to having Dan return to Valencia Lakes in the future.

For Shelly Kaufman (Naples/Ft. Myers):
“This past season, we had the pleasure to add to our program presenter, Shelly Kaufmann with Hudak on Hollywood, Inc. Shelly exudes confidence and passion with each talk he presented. As an Assistant Lifestyle Director, you want presenters that can truly understand their audience and deliver a talk to their expectation. I can honestly say after each one of Shelly’s presentations, “he is a keeper” was just one of the many positive responses we received from our residents. We will definitely welcome Shelly back for another season.”

For Bob Ross (Tampa):
“The Hudak on Hollywood Film Series has been a wonderful addition to our Watermark University program. Presenter Bob Ross delivers the various monthly film topics in an energetic, clear and engaging manor that keeps those in attendance enthralled from start to finish. We’ve truly enjoyed having this monthly course since this past Fall and have learned more about the film industry, especially of early years, than we could have expected.”
