"Yakima was delighted to host Susan Stamberg for two days. We started with a dinner at a local art patron's home (which is a collector's museum in itself). Susan enjoyed a lovely meal amongst specially made chocolate radios and truffles and then spent a few minutes answering questions from our board.
The next morning, I listened to most of the press conference which she handled adeptly. Throughout her time here we were impressed with her friendliness, intelligence, warm sense of humor, and integrity. We all enjoyed her presentation on artists who have changed our time and the clips she had selected were key to her program.
Ms. Stamberg is curious about the life swirling around her today, making her an avid listener and intelligent communicator. This can not be said of all nationally-known speakers."
