"Like Wow, Bob! Your presentations . . . were all well received by our Credit Union Managers and Directors. It's usually difficult to appeal to and meet the needs of everyone. BUT you did it! It's a challenge to get a speaker who gives lots of good take-home ideas we can use right away–and find somebody who gets (and keeps) the audience involved, intersperses enough humor to lighten the load, and still challenges individuals to seek their personal best! You did that, too! Truly professional in every way!"
