Hi Michael – the event went smoothly and Kathleen did a great job connecting with the audience and sharing her story. It was a great event!
Thanks for your help – we need to begin talking soon about my 2011 event! –Kris
Morning Michael, I hope you heard back from Barry to express on how outstanding Art was at the meeting – everyone loved him – what a great speaker he is. Usually, our Business Meetings are conducted once a year, and in different locations – this year happened to be in FL. Most, definitely we will contact you once again for our next event. Thank you so much for your help, service, and most of all suggesting Art for our meeting…..excellent choice! Regards, Jessie
Oh my goodness, Michael -- we could not have had a better day! Kathleen and Naomi were "spot on" as keynote speakers for our event! Kathleen started the day with her warm, funny, personal insights, and the audience relished the stories about her family and experiences as a professional woman and trailblazer as Maryland's first lieutenant governor. Naomi's remarks were equally effective at the end of the day -- funny, insightful and profound. Thank you so much for your assistance in recommending these two excellent speakers and for your efforts to get them all the way out to the "wild, wild west." Our 2010 conference was a resounding success -- and we can't thank you, Kathleen, and Naomi enough! Best wishes, Heather
Michael, Frank Deford was dynamite. We had a packed house with 302 in attendance. Many people knew Frank from either T.V. or NPR radio and came up to him before he spoke to say hello, and after his remarks to thank him for his presentation. Frank was easy to work with during several telephone conversations prior to the meeting when telling him about his audience and coordinating our meeting at the Hotel and event. I found Frank to be personable, humble and very pleasant. His remarks were entertaining, informative and connected well with a mixed audience of men, women, sports enthusiasts and non-sports individuals. He answered questions from the podium and stayed after his speech to talk to anyone, and there were many, who wanted to talk to him. He was a real hit and was a great start to our conference. Thanks for all your help to secure Frank. – Fred
Michael: I was not able to thank Dan Abrams appropriately last evening as he was swarmed by a group all anxious for his attention...I certainly understand why. He is witty, bright, articulate and definitely charming. He took questions from the dinner reception guests and the nearly 350 lecture attendees and answered them with a thoroughness that made each one feel as though his or her question was important. We couldn't have been more delighted with the evening and would highly recommend Dan to any and all groups who want to have him spend time with them. Thanks for all your help as we debated, talked, asked questions prior to bringing him.Warm regards, Bonnie
