          “Our capacity crowd was the highest at an AMA program in two years!

          Many people I spoke with following the program complimented the humorous and realistic way in which you approached the topic of conversational skills – a very relevant topic with holiday networking functions upon us. The way in which you interacted with and involved the audience was fantastic, and it brought home the point of personal connection and name recognition that you made in your presentation.”

          “I really appreciate and recognize your contribution and feel that you set a great tone for the entire conference. I am extremely grateful for your willingness to extend yourself and I hope you realize how truly wonderful you and your presentation were. The substance of your presentation was extremely helpful in beginning the networking process. You held the attention of two hundred very demanding women who rarely sit through a meeting without planning their escape, and who can hardly keep their mouths shut for a moment to listen. Indeed, they listened to you.”
