Testimonials

Vanessa Van Edwards’ speech to our club of hundreds was a welcome break from the standard speech.  It was always engaging, at times uproariously funny and very informative.  As I looked at the audience, everyone was leaning forward and feeling each moment together. We all came away feeling more light-hearted and armed with insights about human behavior that we didn’t know at the beginning.  It was a treat to hear her speak!
