"I wanted to thank you for an outstanding lecture. From the looks of our evaluations, everyone was very pleased and learned quite a bit. You have certainly increased our reputation for bringing in only the highest quality speakers to our area. I also hope that you enjoyed being back in Rochester once again, and the hotel and flights were accommodating! Thank you for making my first conference a success and I do hope you can come back for another."
"The Conference was a success and all events went very well thanks to you in part. Dr. Elkind was very well received, the book signings went very smoothly. We sold approximately 100 books which was great. Some of the people I spoke to thought he was 'god-like.' There was one lady that was crying when she saw him. I was handling the first book signing and a lady came up to me and asked 'how do you feel sitting only three feet away from him?' You would have thought he was a rock star. He certainly is very popular. "
"Everything went wonderfully well for the lecture. Everyone certainly enjoyed Dr. Elkind's talk and they were very excited to get the chance to meet him. We had over 200 people in attendance so it was a great turnout. APB was a great help in the planning and coordination of Dr. Elkind's trip and we appreciate all assistance given by your organization."
