“Rosario’s presentation was awesome! I have received so many compliments about the event. The Chairman asked for her contact information because he wants to send her a thank you. Thank you, for all of your help.”
"Thank you so very much for serving the JPMorganChase community with your presence last night during Hispanic Heritage Month. We could not have heard from a more relevant speaker than you. Everyone in the auditorium and on the phone felt your passion. Your inspiration will encourage us all to reach our full potential and share the opportunity given to us."
"I am very happy to report that we loved Rosario. She was just fabulous, a very impactful speaker, very sincere, told wonderful stories, and she was funny. I think the thing that impressed most everyone about her was that she definitely spoke from the heart from real tough personal circumstances, but had a lot of triumphs along the way too. There was probably not a dry eye in the house when she was finished. She was just fantastic and we really thank you for all our help in putting this together."
"You were right that Ms. Marin is a wonderful speaker. She was also very gracious to our guests. We are very pleased that she was on campus and would highly recommend her. As always, your company was great to deal with, and still our favorite."
"Rosario was absolutely amazing. She was genuine and open and inspiring. She clearly connected with the audience and reminded us all that we cannot control what happens in our lives, we can only control how we respond to it."
