"Thank you for the absolutely fabulous presentation. It was more than a home run. I guess the bases were loaded and you hit a home run. They just haven't stopped talking about the quality of the presentation and the impact of the presentation. Our goal of arming the organization with some practical doable things at the end of the presentation was clearly, clearly well met."
"Thank you for the beautiful job you did as our Keynote Speaker for CRS2016. We really enjoyed working with you and your message was very well received. Although we have worked with some terrific keynote speakers, we had many, many comments from our attendees that you were one of the best Keynotes we have had EVER! I knew it was a real success when there weren’t any books left behind (never seen that before).You definitely hit that home run you wanted! I hope we can work together at another event in the future."
