Amy Robach spoke at our 15th anniversary luncheon, and she will be a challenge to top in the years ahead. Not only was she incredibly warm and friendly to all our guests, her keynote address was personal, poignant and moving – there were few dry eyes as she exited the ballroom to a standing ovation. In addition to being an amazing speaker, she and her office were very easy to work with in the months leading up to our event. There are not enough positive things we can say about our experience – she made the entire luncheon an experience that our guests will not soon forget
