What People Are Saying

"Thank you for your enlightening presentation at the National District Mangers Meeting in New Orleans. Your talk opened our eyes to how beneficial humor can be to help reduce stress. Laughter was truly infectious during your presentation and many of us walked away with a more positive outlook. I am sure the managers of Dun & Bradstreet will be looking for the 'desserts' in being 'stressed.'"
