“I’m glad we used you to close the show each day. I certainly wouldn’t want to be the one to follow you an any agenda. You are the proverbial “tough act to follow.” Beyond that, you were perfect for Curves and for our franchise community. The feedback we’ve had has been universally effusive. It’s not easy to help 3,000 women learn and laugh in the same session, but you did it!”

“I want to thank you for the outstanding presentation you provided at Carle’s Business Health services’ seminar. That may be an understatement since 100% of participants felt your presentation was very good or excellent. They represented a diverse group of leaders, which makes the survey results even more impressive. Some comments were: Very informative. Materials can be used to teach others at my job. Over the top – doesn’t get much better than this. Superb information – superbly presented!

“Your presentation at the recent Serono Symposia Fourteenth International Conference for Nurses and Support Personnel in Reproductive Medicine was phenomenal. This was the first time that we had a speaker such as yourself open and close the conference. Your talk was truly inspirational. As I looked around the room on the days you spoke, I saw nurses crying and laughing almost simultaneously. As the chairperson at this conference you more than exceed my expectations. I consider it invaluable for people to be “in touch” with their feelings. Nurses especially. I heard many nurses say that they had not laughed or cried like that in a long time. Thank you so much for all that you gave to so many people throughout the conference as well as your excellent talks. Thank you for being there and being you!”
