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

Dan Hudak is truly a gem.  Not only is he very easy to work with and responds promptly to emails, but he is an excellent presenter.  He is very knowledgeable on the topics he speaks about – and beyond, as he has been hit with several questions beyond the topic and has always been able to answer!  He speaks without note cards or prompts and is very engaged with the audience.  My guests have absolutely loved each time Dan has come to give a presentation and I plan to continue to bring him back as his lecture topics are vast.  I highly recommend Dan for his professionalism and expertise.  He has a passion for what he speaks on and it shows in his delivery.  As a planner, it is so nice to have those solid speakers like Dan in your bag of tricks!  
-Kristen Bardin, Social Director at Valencia Falls

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!

I AM WRITING TO GIVE DAN HUDAK MY SINCERE AND HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION. DAN HAS PRESENTED 3 OF HIS FILM LECTURES TO THE BOCA RATON RESORT CLUB MEMBERS DURING THE 2017-18 SEASON. HIS PRESENTATION STYLE IS INFORMATIVE, PROFESSIONAL, AND HE KEEPS HIS AUDIENCE THOROUGHLY ENGAGED. HE WENT OUT OF HIS WAY TO ANSWER THE MANY QUESTIONS THAT HIS LECTURE GENERATED.  HE IS A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH. THE BOCA RESORT IS THRILLED THAT HE WILL RETURN FOR AGAIN FOR THE 2018-2019 SEASON.
-BARBARA CHASE PROMER, CLUB MEMBER, THE BOCA RATON RESORT & CLUB

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.
-Rhoda Brenner, Chair of the Speaker Committee at Valencia Lakes

Dan Hudak is probably one of the most incredible speakers we have had at Broken Sound Country Club.  Our members love his presentation, and have asked him back.  We have had two of Dan’s lectures and both were wonderful.  We will be having him present again next season.
-Sue Salkeld, Social Activities Coordinator, Broken Sound Club

I would like to submit my endorsement for Dan Hudak as a premier film reviewer and critic. I first met Dan a few years ago, after being introduced to him by a film study student from our community. Dan had a comprehensive line-up of film lectures that were most appealing to our membership. In 2016, we hired Dan to present his pre-Oscar analysis and predictions lecture before a sold-out crowd of over 250 film lovers. His analysis and insights were well presented, and showed his knowledge of film, passion for the arts, and articulate lecture skills. He was so popular, that we had him back this year (again a sold-out venue) for our year-end Holiday Film Party in December, as well as his pre-Oscar show on February 25th. He is in such demand that we have hired Dan for 2 additional lectures this year. His catalog of lecture subjects is so varied, that he never runs out of ideas. As for his opinions and reviews, I rank him among the elite film critics in all of South Florida. Dan is a good friend and valued resource in his craft.
