"I just wanted to let you know what a successful experience it was to have Carl Bernstein with us. We had a very full room and I continue to receive outstanding positive feedback. Mr. Bernstein was a thoughtful, accessible, frank and an excellent speaker. He opened his remarks with 'Well your timing is good,' which put everyone at ease. He then followed up with meaningful, remarks to perfectly frame the conversation. After his remarks, Mr. Bernstein spent a generous amount of time with audience Q&A as well as mingling for photos. I know that our sponsors, Fitchburg State University and WGBH were very pleased. As you know we've been around for a very long time and this was certainly a highlight for us."
"He was fantastic. His talk was so thought provoking, eloquent and current. He called me twice to discuss the crowd, content...a real professional that is not riding on his reputation but determined to build on it. We had a lot of meat industry related speakers but Carl’s content and theme is what was the main topic of conversation throughout the conference. Thank you for encouraging me to hire Carl!"
