Testimonials 2

  • “You and your message were the highlight of the conference! Our crowd of 750 mostly middle-aged men would typically wait to be wowed by a keynote – sitting back in their chairs, arms crossed, territory marked, daring a speaker to impress them. In moments, our reps were open, eager (leaning forward!), smiling and taking notes in the dark. They were captivated by your pictures, alert to your words and responding to the way you were guiding them, considering how they could accomplish even more in their lives through preparation, asking the important questions and recognizing the moment when spontaneity collides with preparation. You made us each think we were finding something new on our own – not being ‘lectured’ by the typical ‘motivational’ speaker.”
