What audiences are sharing...


Thanks for presenting today. It was FANTASTIC. 

I came back with a million ideas on how to improve! 

I texted my sister and sister-in-law and told them how I wish they had been there. 

I wanted to personally reach out and thank you for your talk this morning!! It was very informative and I've already typed up a summary to share with my co-workers!!

Great presentation today! I think everyone really enjoyed it and I saw many people taking notes.

Thank you so much.  You have made many people rethink what they do and how they do it.

I appreciated your encouragement to do things that force you to be authentic to help you learn who you are both personally and professionally.

It was awesome to hear your story this morning and get inspired before most people were even awake - I took a lot away from the presentation.

We'd all love to have you back!
