I wanted to take a moment to thank you for participating in PENSCO’s Symposium on Self-Directed IRA’s, held in New York City in March. Your presentation certainly contributed to the overall success of the event. I sat in on your presentation, “Earning Fast Profits in Hard Times”, and found your presentation to be insightful, educational and thought-provoking and the topic was certainly timely. My opinion of your presentation was confirmed by feedback I received from event attendees. It was a pleasure to have you at our event and it is without reservation that I would recommend your presentation skills to anyone interested in having you speak. I look forward to working with you again.

Where do I begin? You were excellent at the OSC Power Meeting XXIV recently held in St. Pete Beach, Florida. The speaker evaluations proved that you were a huge hit with our members. QSC members are much better off, both personally and professionally, for having attended your program. I might add that we have never had as many requests for the recording of a presentation as we have with yours. Don’t ever hesitate to have any prospective clients contact me as a reference. Thank you again for such a positive experience.
