"Stellar idea for the fashion consultant...and just the right amount of Hollywood. Thanks for being patient with continuing to send me options because it was worth waiting on Joe."
"You were spectacular today. Thank you for choosing to spend your day with us! There is now a hashtag going around the company: #wwjs for ‘what would Joe say.’ Thanks again, you were an amazing addition to our event."
"Everything went GREAT with Jackson Katz! The feedback from the audience is that this was our best event to date. Jackson was very accommodating and did a Q&A with a group of student leaders, which is now moving toward a more intentional effort, just what we wanted. Thanks again for the great service and wonderful selection of speakers!"
